Owl and Firkin Pub (Markham, Ontario)

Owl and Firkin Pub, 7181 Woodbine, Markham (Toronto) Ontario, Canada. Great pub that war recommended to me by a friend of mine. They have a nice diamond shaped bar in the middle of the bar. There are numerous booths and tables away from the main bar area. we were there in the middle of the week and there was a Toronto Maple Leafs game on TV so the pub was very busy with people in to watch the game. Yes the Leafs lost.....again! One of the waiters who has been there for 13 years immigrated from Sri Lanka, and he had the most amazing skill at being able to remember things. He took a whole table order, passed it on to the other waiter, asked everyone's birthday and went off visiting every one in the bar. We could not stump hi when he came back 1/2 hour later he remembered everything!! I have a hard time remembering some ones name!! The food was good, first time I had the 1/2 BBQ chicken with 40 Mile Creek BBQ sauce, which came with fries and baked beans. It was very good and the price was around $12,00 which was very good. the second time I had Steak and mushroom pie with veggies and mashed potatoes and it too was good. There is lots of seating and the last time I was there I managed to stick my head in during a pre-wedding party. You know those pictures where you say "who the hell is that!" I really enjoyed this place!!

  1. I have heard a lot about this diamond shaped pub, the Owl and Firkin Pub. I guess this should be one of the top pubs in Toronto. No doubt Toronto is full of these types of pubs and bars which attract tourists through out the year.
