Gastropub Grub at The Wilcox
I had been to the Wilcox once before for drinks and I saw some tasty looking food walk by, so I had to come back. A trendy spot, it has different levels you can sit on and a glass ceiling in the bar area. The bar area has TVs on every wall and taps food love fabulous craft brews.
Seated in the bar lounge on a sunny day, there was lots of natural light. There was could see a balcony that overlooked this area. We ordered some craft beer; my friend went with a beer from Muskoka and I had some Side Launch. As we browsed the menu, the Wilcox Burger and Steak Frites caught my eye. A woman at the next table was just finishing her Steak Frites and highly recommended them. I was sold! My friend also thought the Wilcox Burger looked good, so that made it easy.
The Steak Frites were everything I wanted. The steak was cooked to order and melted in your mouth. Just a dash of seasoning was all it had and didn't need anything else. It was topped with a healthy splash of chimichurri. Wow! The fries were tasty; I cleaned my plate! The Wilcox Burger was huge! There was a ton of toppings. A big juicy burger patty piled high with crispy onions and arugula with a sunny side egg on top. My friend forgot about the egg when he took his first bite. Haha! #
Our servers were great. Much like my first visit, they're all pretty cool with a good sense of . They were on point, keeping tables clear and glasses full. I really like this place; it's got a good vibe and comfortable seating.
