    Impressive new bar that will please both gents & gals! Not prenticious (yet) and casual atmosphere. You're lucky if you get a chance to bowl (only 10 lanes) as they take no reservations, but the sp

    My pulled pork poutine tasted like tin corn beef, not cool. We didn't get to bowl bc of being told the wrong info from multiple staff. The Manager was *rolls eyes* whatevs... their fries are good tho

    Don't get any of the poutines. The gravy tastes disgusting, and as Canadians, y'all know the gravy breaks or makes the poutine. P.S. WiFi password is "ballroom".

    Cool place but don't bother coming here for lunch. Took our group over 2 hours to get our food (half ordered salads or burgers). We got a quick apology from the manager before he disappeared.

    The worst food I've had in a long time. Nice place for drinks, but the "food" is inedible. Soggy chicken wings, curdled mac and cheese, mushy poutine, salt-lick bacon, and 7-11 hot dogs.

    Ok for drinks after work but food service is quite slow so not a good option for a meal if you are heading to a movie.

    The wait times for a bowling lane can be long as this place is usually busy but it's great for groups.

    The Dude's heaven on earth. The Ballroom is not just a bowling alley. Eat, watch the game and don’t forget to ask about ping-pong.

    What a great new venue for Toronto, $75 for an hour of bowling which is expensive but worth while to do something different in downtown Toronto
