The name can be deceiving: Pump House Grille Co. is anything but a run-of-the-mill bar and grill.
Situated in the heart of historic Port Credit, Pump House Grille Co. boasts one of the best locations in the GTA. The restaurant sits on the corner of Lakeshore and Stavebank, mere steps from the Credit River.
On hot summer days, patrons can enjoy an ice cold beer and smell the sea breeze blowing in from the water while dining on the patio. And in the winter, the snow falling on Lakeshore Boulevard creates a picturesque scene from the warmth of Pump House's indoor window seating.
But perhaps the best seat in the house is at the grand circular bar that sits in the center of the restaurant. The hardwood floors, brick walls and multiple flat screen TVs work together to create an atmosphere of cozy, comfortable charm; the perfect place to watch a hockey game with friends while grabbing some good eats.
And are they ever good. What really sets Pump House apart from other local bars and grills is its surprisingly complex menu. Typical bar food is given a kick of sophistication with the addition of fresh, quality ingredients.
Ordinary quesadillas are transformed with the addition of lobster, fresh garlic and avocado, and the standard flatbread is given new life with roasted pears, brie and candied walnuts.
From gourmet burgers to house-made curries, chicken wings to gluten free pasta dishes, everything at Pump House Grille Co. is served with an understated flair. It's a new kind of tavern in a beloved, historic neighborhood.
