The Loose Moose is a lively bar in downtown Toronto favoured by locals and out-of-towners since 1989. Their fondness may have something to do with its beer selection. After all, with over 65 varieties on tap, repeat visits are kind of a given, especially for lovers of Canadian craft. Beer isn't the only thing we have to brag about. With inventive plates, generous portions and the cleanest taps in the city, this is a bar you’ll likely come back to — plan or no plan.

    The food was excellent, we both had burgers, the Woody and the Jal A Peno, with fries. However we were seated right in a corner, surrounded by tables of men obviously on a working meet up, not a great atmosphere for a couple like us on vacation.

    It was a bit quiet on a Tuesday night with no Leafs or Raptors game. Service was excellent and everything we ordered (nachos, wings, fries, burger) was very good. Typical bar fare but good quality and good value.

    We ordered drinks, appetizer and entrée at the same time because we knew what we wanted. The appetizer and entrée arrived at the same time. The drinks a while later. We opted to eat the entrée while it was hot and to box the appetizer. The food was very good and it arrived quickly. Service was a bit hot and cold. Still a very good place for a quick tasty meal.

    It was great! We had many drinks. Server was good, until it was "tipping" time. We tipped $10, no one is obligated to tip more. Server embarrassed me and said this is what I get for giving you a good service? I was surprised and took out a 10 and gave it to him and left. I hope that server doesn't work there anymore. I believe his name was Jonathan? (Caucasian guy with white/greyish hair) People need to understand that it isn't mandatory to tip. This is tough times and these businesses should be happy they are getting customers. I would visit again because we enjoyed the food and the drinks. But surely hope that people like that who are getting paid $14.50/hr plus making tips realize that people are NOT obligated to tip. They want to. Period. I hope the establishment educate their servers a little better.

    Awesome. So great to be back. People need to get in here and start packing the place. Great food, great service, awesome booze. One of our go to places that got hurt by this Pandemic crap and with no patio they had to close. Go support and grab some beers and wings damn it.

    Made the reservation on Open Table a week before trip to Toronto for a Trade Conference. I added two more colleagues during the Conference and an additional one two hours before our reservation. The ages of our party ranged from 30-62 years. We had an amazing time and I personally enjoyed my “smoked” old fashions (been on the search for them since I arrived in Toronto). We enjoyed appetizers of Fried Pickles, A Pound of Fries and 2 types of wings. Entrees were delicious. I personally had the Nashville Chicken.

    It was really really loud and difficult to have a conversation. I think the reason was the music was so loud so people had to shout to talk to each other over food and that rose the level of noise. As people left, the noise level reduced. If the place would just lower the music level, I think the experience will be much better.

    Very good experience, service was tops too. Only comment is my diet Coke had no gas in it, probably being first served of the day. I'm sure they would have changed it, but I didn't think to ask at the time. But I always liked Loose Moose, especially the latter-day incarnation with the impressive beer selection. On that score, my only suggestion is to see if Guinness would send you its outstanding Foreign Export Stout on draft. That would be a coup!

    We were very impressed with everything. The restaurant has been open for years, but it was very clean, modern and the menu offerings were plentiful and up to date. Great beer offerings and I appreciated the 2oz size. All of our food was very good and was served in an appropriate time. Our waitress was very friendly and professional, some of the best service we have had recently. We will be back.

    Went in for the Leafs home opener and they have stopped playing the commentary during the game and keep the music blasting. Completely changes the atmosphere for the game, it kind of unsuited to have Taylor swift blast during a hockey game, completely takes away from the whole experience. Several people were asking why the music was still playing and staff seemed helpless. Always loved going here for games but this whole music thing might affect that. The food also seemed to take a dive. I really hope this was a one off!

    We enjoy going to the moose before the blue jays game night. The food is always delicious and a good value. I love the many beer selections especially the Kona Larger. We have been at the Kona Brewing Company in Hawaii. This brings me back to the big island. Staff is always friendly and we love the menu selections.

    We were sat at a table that was waitressed by the bartender. BAD IDEA!! We waited to even be asked about drinks... she took the order and quickly ran back to the bar. No questioning if we wanted food. Came back 10 minutes later with our drinks and started to walk away when I had to stop her to ask her for an appetizer. By the time this comes out or drinks are empty, she grabs the empty glasses and walks away without asking about refills. Needless to say we asked for the check and went next door to eat.

    Initially I really liked the restaurant based on its atmosphere for the game. Our Hostess was amazing and so sweet and always came by to ask us if we needed anything. However our mood was completely ruined during the game when the 'manager' I believe, white guy dark hair skinny, comes up to us and says he'll kick us out if we don't order food again since we do not drink. One, I understand you need to make revenue during a game specially if there's a line outside his point could have been made in a more respectful manner. Second, how am I supposed to order anything without a menu? He did not bring one he didn't ask us if we needed anything as soon as he approached us, nothing. Most bars ask you if you need anything and provide a menu and then asked you to order due to targets they need to meet for the night etc. Fire your manager and promote the hostess that was serving us. She was so professional and kind and we absolutely loved her four game six night. Mood killer during first period that manger sucks I should have just went to my reservation at Scadabush next door.
