NOTE: This review is for the Newly opened PICKERING location, for which there isn't a Tripadvisor page yet. We've always been regular customers of the Leslie Street location, and were excited when a new PB opened in Pickering last week. First off, they were extremely...More

Four of us went for lunch, all of us had different meals. My beef dip was rather fatty and nasty. My husbands smoked meat sandwich was dry and the bread stale. My daughter said her hamburger patties tasted like McDonalds. Her boyfriends rice bowl was...More

The only thing good about meeting with our friends was the company. The Pickle Barrel did nothing to add to the birthday celebration in regards to the food. A zero for presentation of the meal. We could not identify most of the veggies by appearance...More

The steak sandwich here is one of the best available in the city. Get it with the blue cheese and it’s even better. The place could be a little cleaner as it gets a lot of traffic. They have great sandwiches, burgers and salads. Reasonable...More

Under motivated staff, improperly cooked dishes, and an all around classless act. Even after Joey’s moved into the mall we continued to go to the Pickle Barrel, but when you hear a waitress storming around saying “I HATE THIS F***ING PLACE”, kind of gets to...More

Average chain restaurant. Lots of choices on the menu, including some which would appeal to health conscious diners. Some recipes they claim is from Rose Reisman, a health/diet author. From the food we ordered, it was average, nothing special about it. The JoJo Caribbean rice...More

My company has Xmas lunch here for the staff every year. Whenever I eat at Markville mall, I choose PB because of the value, selection and consistency of taste. I haven't worked my way through most of the menu over the years, but haven't been...More

Have dined at Pickle Barrel many times, often at this location inside Markville Mall. Our most recent meal was highly underwhelming. Hot beef sandwich was cold with turgid gravy and chewy brisket, and once hot fries were anemic. Kids meals were poorly prepared, and mostly...More
