Whelan's Gate

Posted by Staff / Listed on June 16, 2010 / review policy

Whelan's GateWhelan's Gate is nestled in a pseudo restaurant row just east of High Park. With a small patio out front, a tiny bar inside, another tiny bar and larger patio upstairs, it doesn't take long for Whelan's to get busy - and that's part of its charm. Irish accents were heard, new friends were made and a few bucks were left in my pocket at the end of the night. Good times.

The place sucks. Do *not* go there but if you do, don't sit in my seat.

This place is not worth the time or money. Go anywhere else. Poor food, poor service and poor clientèle. You'd be better to go a bit further west to Bloor West Village.

Cute,cozy Irish pub... But the food is garbage. Fine to go for a pint but don't bother with the food. I'm not sure how they get away with this but the buffalo chicken sandwich is just 2 chicken tenders in a regular white bread bun and they charge $12 for that.

Be warned! They have critters in the roof. My friends boyfriend was peed on by a raccoon while he was sitting on the patio out front. Management did nothing.

Wow, and now yellow carded, every past inspection has revealed the same improper practices, the dine safe health red/yellow/green card is a joke. Each infractions calls for promise to comply and re-assessed at next inspection, yet every time the same infractions and the same result. I'd never eat there after reading the reports, likely wouldn't trust my glasses to be clean either, so... no drinking. Too bad, they have a nice patio.
