The Pint Public House is a huge pub serving over 40 draft beers and “40 way” wings, that is pounds of wings dressed with your choice of 40 sauces.
The concept started out west and this is the first Ontario location. The touristy spot is right underneath the CN Tower where there used to be a Baton Rouge.
The massive, multi-level space can hold roughly 850 people, so there are never any worries about being able to find a table near game time. Two dance floors host DJs on Fridays, Saturdays, and a Tuesday industry night.
The large patio holds 140 people, and though there are no heating elements there are a few umbrellas for coverage.
If you’re looking for all the usual suspects on tap, this is the place to find them.
Bud Light, 50, Keith’s, Goose Island and Shock Top reign supreme, but local offerings like Ace Hill and Henderson have managed to sneak on there.
A pound of wings ($13) are deep fried and come slathered in their signature vinegary, herby, slightly spicy Mum’s BBQ sauce out of the 40 ways, a bottle of which is at every table.
These juicy little guys have won awards, and come with celery, carrots, and a wide range of dipping sauces, too, from classic ranch and blue cheese to sweet sriracha and guacamole.
A kale and beet salad ($13) tops a kale and greens mix tossed in house balsamic vinaigrette with large half moons of sweet caramelized beets, juicy mandarin segments, little pearls of goat cheese and crushed walnuts. It comes with a bit of toasted bread to sneak those carbs in.
Niagara nachos ($19) are an ideal sharing dish, definitely more than enough to go around for a huge group of hungry people in this mountain of house nacho chips, jalapeno, tomato, green onion with melted cheddar and mozzarella, served with ample sour cream and salsa.
The “Inferno” burger ($15) is one of several, including chorizo, mushroom cheddar, “Taco Crunch” and “Garden Patch.”
The juicy patty is topped with jalapeno havarti, panko onion rings, jalapenos, and a spicy seven pepper sauce you can also opt for on wings.
The upstairs area has plenty of nooks and crannies for squeezing your party into, but you can also rent out the entire space for a private function and sprawl out.
Walls covered in memorabilia (much of it Toronto-themed), plenty of versatile space and views of the many big screen TVs in here make this an accessible party spot for big groups.
