Gabby's was founded in 1989 by a local Toronto based family. Situated on Yonge
Street, north of Lawrence Avenue in the heart of a populated upper-middle-class
neighbourhood, the concept was simply to create a cozy environment that was
well suited to have great conversations, served quality freshly cooked meals
and offered great draft beer and spirit selections. After 22 years of
fine-tuning, product development, and loads of hard work, we have what you see
today. As of 2011, we have sixteen locations (14 under the banner name Gabbys’s)
We currently serve over 30,000 customers a
Today, we still offer a stimulating atmosphere with lots of conversation pieces on the walls and serve excellent quality, fresh cooked meals. We are defined as a main stream casual dining restaurant with an integrated sports bar area that caters to the community and local businesses. We provide friendly, attentive service in a relaxed environment by staff and owners that truly enjoy their job.
Over the years our menu has changed to reflect today’s consumer. From a once beer and wing joint to our current menu of over 50+ items including our hand dipped to order authentic beer battered fish & chips, premium quality AAA steak, Premium Prime Rib burgers, a great selection of entrée salads and more then 20 vegetarian options. Let’s not forget that we still serve great wings. Recently referred to as “The Best Chicken Wings I have ever had!" on 'The Dean Blundell Show', 102.1 'the EDGE' (Dec. 19th 2007).
Our Toronto based locations offer delivery throughout the downtown core seven days a week, provide take out, fast pick-up and on site catering in addition to full table service.
The overall decor of Gabby's has also evolved over the years. Once a Roadhouse look, now a much softer, cleaner, more contemporary casual dining look. Our latest locations feature generous wood booths, the walls offer rich wood finishes, natural stone and exposed brick topped with our signature nostalgic signage and conversational pieces. A host of large High Definition Flat screen TV’s, rich earth tone colors and great music round out the theme. Our image is a reflection of today's consumer needs and the change in current styles.
We are very proud to say that after two+ decades of serving this great
city, our Toronto
based company is still owned and operated by the same founding family. If you
have experience in the hospitality industry and are looking for a business
opportunity we selectively offer
franchise opportunities outside the downtown core. In addition to our core
brand Gabby’s we also own and operate the Hey Lucy pizzeria and pasta
brand in the downtown core www.HeyLucy.ca
