Against The Grain – Leaside

Urban Tavern

Enjoy a BOLD urban tavern experience at Against the Grain. We go against the norm, pushing the boundaries with a menu that balances traditional tavern offerings with bold flavours. We’ve created dishes that work, but shouldn’t! We deliver the unexpected with our infamous Nasi Goreng and made-in-tavern Chicken Coq au Vin Pot Pie. And don’t forget we’re Leaside’s first choice for Brunch, so get your weekend started with a great breakkie menu and $4 Caesars.

But we’re not just about great food – we’re pouring 18 taps of craft and seasonal beers!
Experience them all with our Beer Flights. Don’t have your brew on tap? Explore our great bottle selection from the fridge.

We’re the place for your next social. Pull up to ‘the wood’ to watch the game, or head upstairs for additional seating and group events. Relax on the best patios in Leaside and savour our unique cocktails or share a pitcher of Sangria with friends.

Whether you’re looking for a place to hold your next big event, somewhere to watch the game, or somewhere to enjoy a brunch on our huge waterfront patio, we’ve got you covered.
