San Tur ★★★★☆ (3.8)

February 13, 2019 | Wing Reviews | by Johnny San

San Tur’s primary wing is duck. If you’ve had duck before, you know that it’s a fairly oily meat which results in a wing that is greasy, but still crisp and tasty. The wings come in two flavours; Samfaina and piri piri. Good, unique flavours, but not necessarily ones that would bring me back. I […]

The Dox ★★★☆☆ (3.0)

October 9, 2018 | Wing Reviews | by Johnny San

The Dox holds the distinction of being the only true waterfront patio in Kingston. Unfortunately we visited the Dox in the fall, but we will probably be back in the summer. I actually closed an activity ring while eating these wings, so i feel like that is an accomplishment. I ordered the buffalo and I […]

Stone City Ales ★★☆☆☆ (2.0)

April 5, 2018 | Wing Reviews | by Johnny San

I’ve had food here before and it was good, but there are better places to get wings. The flavour wasn’t bad, but they were small, unbreaded, fatty, and expensive. I have nothing good to say about any of the things that made up my $50 bill, let alone the wings. Worst wing night I have […]

Battery Bistro ★★★☆☆ (3.2)

July 9, 2017 | Wing Reviews | by Johnny San

The wings were severely undersauced. Since they’re owned by the folks who also run Sir John’s, the wings are very similar, except these were severely lacking in flavour. Good texture, but not very meaty. The restaurant itself was nice. The view can’t be beat. I would go again, just not for wings. They were very […]

Smitty’s ★★★★☆ (3.8)

April 25, 2017 | Wing Reviews | by Johnny San

My pound didn’t quite feel like a pound, but decent wings with a good variety of flavours. Surprisingly good dry wings. I found the skin on some of my wings a little too thick and chewy – not crispy enough. Sauce was good. Tangy and good medium spice, but nothing special. These wings were far […]

The Public House ★★★★☆ (4.0)

February 7, 2017 | Wing Reviews | by Johnny San

The Public House is the only place in town to give you a real, whole wing. Flat, drum, and whatever the other part is called. It may not seem like a lot of food when listed as 5 wings on the menu, but when it arrives you’re looking at a pretty full order. A unique […]

Tommy’s ★★★★☆ (3.8)

September 14, 2016 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“This group always has a good night at Tommy’s. Good wings at a great price thanks to their Wednesday special.” “My lips are still tingling from that extra hot sauce!!!” “I think the only thing hurting them is the heat retention of their wing. It may be due to the large amount of sauce that […]

Jack Astor’s ★★★★☆ (3.6)

June 2, 2016 | Wing Reviews | by Johnny San

“The wings are sauced in front of you when they bring them to the table. This resulted in wings that were very saucy, while still retaining their crispiness resulting in a, dare I say, perfect sauciness/crispiness ratio. New champ for best non-local wings!” “Sauce was really tasty and it was different than the norm. I […]

The Mansion ★★★☆☆ (3.3)

April 6, 2016 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“These wings are a fantastic example of how to do a grilled wing. They’re a little lacking in size, and they only have one flavour option to choose from, but it’s a tasty wing! The service we had last night was top notch!” “The wings were good, and tasted exactly like chicken, not like fat. […]

The Iron Duke on Wellington ★★★★☆ (4.3)

March 16, 2016 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

Group Comments “These wings blow my mind. I was sad that fullness became a factor and I had to stop eating them. They are big, hot, well breaded, well flavoured wings.” “New #1 for me. Wings were fantastic with a great sauce selection. Not a single complaint or criticism.” “I don’t usually like dry rub […]

grizzly grill

The Grizzly Grill ★★★☆☆ (3.2)

February 18, 2016 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“One thing seemed consistent across the board – no one felt satisfied with just one pound of wings. The location only has one unique and very tasty flavour for wings so it would be hit or miss depending on your wing preference. I personally really enjoyed them. In my opinion, the only shortfall of these […]

Copper Penny (Downtown) ★★★☆☆ (3.3)

February 3, 2016 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“These wings were hit and miss among the group. Depending on the sauce you got, your wings may have ended up soggy or cold. I was happy with mine. They stayed warm and had a great flavour (I got the Thai). The wings were small though, and overcooked which led to a dry meat.” “While […]

lone star

Lone Star Texas Grill ★★★★☆ (3.7)

November 18, 2015 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“Great size wing, good taste, excellent texture/crispness. Exceptional service.” “The wings were a great size and very meaty – the flavour of the sauce was great, but the wings arrived lukewarm and were cold fairly quickly.” “Great service – did well to accommodate out large group during a busy dinner rush. Heat retention was weak […]

portsmouth tavern

The Portsmouth Tavern ★★★☆☆ (3.1)

November 5, 2015 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“The wings were average but the restaurant is a great location for friends to gather for good times.” “I didn’t enjoy these wings very much. They were hardly sauced, very dry, and the meat was poorly cut and the wings had unpleasant nubs and bits to chew around. Also, when we arrived, we were told […]

The Merchant Tap House ★★★☆☆ (3.3)

October 8, 2015 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“This pub is always a fun time. It’s a staple in the Kingston restaurant scene. The wings were on the better side of things but weren’t blow you away good. If you like incredibly saucy wings this is a good place for you. There was a huge pool of sauce in the bottom of most […]

Wild Wing ★★★☆☆ (2.9) CLOSED

September 16, 2015 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

UPDATE: The downtown Kingston Wild Wing closed in mid-2016. “Super slow on the food. Some people finished their wings well before others even got theirs. Must have only been one person in the kitchen. Wings were sub par but the variety makes it a must go destination.” “Seemed like the kitchen was understaffed – very […]

tir nan og

Tir Nan Og ★★☆☆☆ (2.1)

September 3, 2015 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“The wing breading was soggy. The meat was strangely and unpleasantly soft in some spots. Not much good going on here with the wings.” “Kind of soggy, with poor heat retention. Possibly the smallest wings this group has had.” “Lacking in good flavours and good wait staff.” “I had the Tandoori sauce – which was […]

JMs

JM’s ★★★★☆ (3.9)

August 17, 2015 | Wing Reviews | by Webmaster

“The wings have always been good here. This time around though, the breading tasted very soggy which wasn’t nice. The servers dropped the ball on a few things too.” “JM’s greatest strength is the separate room available for large parties (like us!) that can create a private atmosphere. One of JM’s weakness is apparently the […]
