The Black Dog Pub
87 Island Rd
Easier said than done! Given that all of us live in different locations from work, we wanted to keep it close. I called all over Scarborough to find a place with a private room in the Morningside/Meadowvale/Sheppard area. I was losing hope when one of my co-workers that lives local suggested Black Dog. It was perfect!
We knew we were in for something good when we arrived; it was packed and lively. The room was festively decorated and spacious; far too large for our crowd, it could easily host 30 people. We were taken care of my 1 wonderful server and given the regular menu and the specials and they both looked delicious.
We started with appetizers...many of them. Bacon Wrapped Scallops(pictured), Nachos, Platter for Two(pictured..mmmm), Coconut Tiger Shrimp(AMAZING), Calamari and Veggie Spring Rolls. I didn't get to sample everything, but considering how fast they went, I assume they were good. The nachos were fantastic as were the sweet potato fries and calamari.
I ordered the Stuffed Chicken from the specials. It was bursting with goat cheese, asparagus and peppers. Loved it. A few people ordered the Prime Rib Special but, none of them left a morsel on their plates. Another popular choice was the Halibut and Chips. The piece of fish was huge and the fries were plentiful.
The service was fantastic. She handled our crazy little group very well. She kept the drinks and our tummies full.
It was a great venue for our party! Everyone loved it!
Happy whatever doesn't offend you! :)
2014 will be more delicious than ever,
