Allen's is a Toronto institution and holds a number of distinctions. Owner John Maxwell was one the very first restaurateurs in this town to feature an all Canadian wine list, which it still does, as well as one of the city's healthier list of craft beers, domestic and importe../Restaurants/d. Allen.css's also has, what one leading critic called, the city's "best hamburger". Best or not, it has legions of fans, many of whom refuse to order anything else from the homey, simple but excellent quality menu. Lastly, Allen's boasts one of the city's very best backyard patios, dotted with majestic trees. It's the perfect place to play hooky in the day or relax with old friends at night.


Great patio. Excellent burgers.

Agreed that the patio is excellent, but the food isnt the best.

Quite possibly the second best summer time patio in the city. Keeping the first to myself BUT it's in Etobicoke and you really wouldn't expect it to be here.
And, right next door to Allens don't miss Dora Keogh. Super pub.
