Toronto Beach Club

Toronto Beach Club is a massive restaurant serving seafood towers and charcoal-cooked meats along the shores of Woodbine Beach.

Spanning over 12,000 square feet of equal parts patio and interior dining, you can find this summery space and its parking lot in the Lake Shore Boulevard plaza that’s long anchored the Beaches largest patch of sand.

There are also front row seats to Woodbine Beach’s volleyball nets, just close enough for the view but far enough to avoid stray spike balls.
