Saw an add for this place in the Snap magazine for the danforth.. Any one know anything about it, or betteryet, been there? Menu looks very typically pub/ sports bar, but might be good for some wings or a burger. Anyone?

    It has lots of high-def TVs and good prices for normal pub fare. I consider it one of the better sports bars in the city and have always had great service the handful of times I've been there.

        Nothing that stands out in particular. I remember the portion of wings being generous.

      We ate there last summer. I had beef ribs. I love ribs, but I didn't love these: they were so tough that I didn't finish them. My companion can't remember what she ate, but says she does remember that she thought at the time that her mystery meal was typical for a Beaches pub. (Not that this was a pub when we were there -- it was very much a sports bar.) I'm not inclined to go back, but if I do, I'll post an update.

        I Love The Fill Station....Not Only Is It Direct Opposite From My Dwell....But The Wings Are Killer...They Have A Nice Crisp W/ Alot Of Meat On Them Wings...Damn...!

        It's Clean Too....No Smoke From The Past....The Staff I've Found Them To Be Very Friendly And As Quick As What Should Be Expected... They Have A Dumb Waiter Kitchen Which I Like...Lots Of Big Screens For Viewing At Any Angle....I Hope They Get This Patio Thing Started...!!! Regarding Their Other Pub Food...Ihonestly Don't Know....I'm Sure I'll Get There One Day......!

          I love this place! Not sure if they have changed their recipe for the ribs...but my husband says they are some of the best he has ever had! The portions are huge, the prices are excellent and the service is always amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to watch a game or hang out with friends! They also have a 1/2 price special everyday on a menu item!

              I'm going to guess it was full because of the Colts/Patriots game. If you're not there for the sports, I suggest you avoid any big football games, UFC and boxing PPV events because you will not get a seat.
