Hey gang, have you watched Sportsnet's reasonably competent NHL coverage and thought to yourself "I think they probably would make a good burger", well, do I have the restaurant who'll charge you eight bucks for a pint of Bud Light for you!

Admittedly I don't eat in Toronto very often but those prices seem nuts. $26 for a chicken caesar salad?! An $18 grilled cheese!?

edit: actually, a $27 plate of nachos is my favourite, only because guac is an extra $11! It's a share plate so I'd imagine it's an ok size but still.

Yeah, those are pretty sketchy even by the grossly overpriced standards of eating in that part of town. It's pricier in parts than Real Sports.

Which would be one thing if it were, you know, good.

The $18 grilled cheese blows my mind. So does the $17 chili dog, and the $21 po' boy - which seems to completely go against the reason the po boys exists in the first place.

If it's $8 pints then that part isn't bad.

Yeah, $8 domestic pints seems in line with other bars in the area.

Food prices seem high though.

I think my favourite thing might be the wine list having Wayne Gretzky's, Mike Weir's and Bob McCown's vineyards represented. Clearly making choices in service of the food.

I eat out here a lot. These prices are just obscene.

I'm just dying to know how much guacamole you get for $11. Please, if someone here goes, answer this question for me. I'll dedicate a GDT to you or something.

Nothing is more insane than the prices at the ACC (ok fine Scotiabank Arena) in a private box.

You know, I go to about 1 game per year, and in a box, but I never have to pay for anything.

Now, I did get tickets for the Air Canada lounge a year or 2 ago, and I did pay for my meal...I had a $32 hamburger, and a $15 beer.

I had more than one beer.

That was a bananas bill, but I find Toronto very expensive to party in, in general.

These are standard Sydney (AU) prices. Not cheap but nothing unusual.

I don't know if things have changed since my time there but as I recall tipping wasn't as customary in Australia as it is here. So those prices are going to be in addition to a 15-20% gratuity at least.

But in general, I agree. If this is a good bar then those prices are pretty standard for good bars in downtown Toronto. That said I have some pretty strong suspicions that in addition to being fairly expensive, this place is also going to be pretty generic.
