The Real Sports Bar & Grill opened in 2010. This place occupies two floors in Toronto’s sports and entertainment centre. The place is very nicely designed and decorated, with seating booths, tables for two and four people and a lot of seating at the bars. There is a nice sports theme all around, with decorations and sections of this place designed to resemble sports courts. There are 199 TVs and the largest HD screen measuring 39 feet, and The Real Sports Bar has been voted as the #1 Sports Bar in North America by ESPN.
The menu is nicely put together. There are starters like Literally Popcorn chicken, roasted cauliflower dip, calamari, Philly egg rolls, RS mini burgers and more. There are many nacho versions served here, as well as a proper selection of salads. This bar serves their Real Sports Ultimate Chicken Wings by the pound with a good selection of sauces/dips, and perfect poutine made from fresh-cut fries.
Main dishes include grilled salmon, lasagna, beef back ribs, shrimp tacos, spaghetti and meatballs, rice bowls, fish & chips, and plenty more. Let’s not forget the burgers and sandwiches, with many patrons saying good words about the juicy patties. To finish up, one can have a sweet treat like key lime pie, strawberry shortcake, brownie cheesecake, stadium Sundae, and peanut butter pie.
One hundred twenty-six draught taps serving over 50 types of beer, and the bartenders are prepared to make you any cocktail you like. This place is currently under renovations but is expected to open very soon.
