Ten Restaurant and Wine Bar

Ten Restaurant and Wine Bar, also known as Ten, is on prime real estate in Mississauga, so you can’t miss it. It is located at the corner of Lakeshore Rd. and Hurontario St. and has been one of the go to spots in Port Credit for good food, music and a fun night out.

It’s the perfect all-in-one spot to drink, dine and dance almost every night of the week because they feature live musicians including Kate Todd, Kenny V and Chris Smith, and dj’s every night except Sunday. Friday and Saturday nights are the prime time to let loose, and work your dancing shoes in, it’s one of the more upscale spots in the Port Credit area.

There is always something happening at Ten – Mondays are half price wine night, Thursdays are $4 Corona’s and $4 rails, and Friday and Saturday nights, you can lounge with the rest of the VIPs with bottle service. You can start your nights early between Monday-Friday from 4pm-6pm with Ten’s Happy Hour menu which features a vast selection of small dishes, $1 per oz wine, and $4 domestic beer.

Spice Lounge is located in the heart of Port Credit and their food concept is Spanish tapas with a vast selection of wines from Spain, Chile, Argentina, and a cocktail list which includes a number of creative cocktail and martini concoctions. They also have a signature sangria which is a must try, and Tequila’s should you dare.

This is one of the most unique concepts in Port Credit to enjoy a taste of Spain on plates designed for sharing. Don’t be fooled by the term tapas, you can be as full from a few of the dishes off the menu as if you ordered a traditional entree portion size. It’s about the experience and your company.

The menu includes dishes like Serrano Ham and Chorizo Sausage Platter, Pork Empanadas, Vegetable Empanadillas, a selection of flatbreads and seafood tapas dishes. One of their signature desserts is called Buňuelo which is essentially a Spanish donut, but so much more than that.

Spice Lounge definitely has a lounge type of feel which is sexy cool, and the front portion of the restaurant is a sliding door which brings a refreshing breeze and light into place.

You can catch live music and dj’s on selected nights at Spice Lounge some of which include Alexander Quail, Kirt Godwin, DJ ShelShock, and Dodger Music.The Pump House Grill Co.

On the corner of Lakeshore Rd. and Stavebank Rd. is The Pump House Grill Company, is also known as The Pump, and is a Port Credit fave. It is happening just about every night of the week and is especially busy on the weekends.

The Pump offers a large selection of brews on tap, exclusive wines, and a feature cocktail menu, – it is a great spot to “drink, eat well and be happy” – the words The Pump lives by.

The menu has something for everyone including a big section of bar classics, appetizers, pastas, burgers, and a must try selection of what they call Pump Favorites which includes Toasted Coconut Chicken, Smokey Hickory Maple Salmon, and Beer Battered Halibut just to name a few.

The Shore is located on the busiest strip of Port Credit and fronts a beautiful street level patio which is an ideal spot to meet for drinks, and a nice meal or casual fare. Although the main dining area is a white linen kind of establishment, they have a crowd of regulars that frequent the restaurant especially in the summertime to enjoy one of their frozen summertime cocktails, a few beers or a bottle of wine from their extensive drink menu on their patio. You can also enjoy a drink and more casual fare if you aren’t in the mood for fine dining in their bar which adjoins the establishment.

The Shore has live music from Thursday to Sunday, on long weekends and during some of Port Credits music festivals.The Brogue Inn Irish Pub

Located just north of Ten is a bar called The Brogue Inn Irish Pub, which they like to call “a home away from home”. If you are homesick, want to get a taste of Ireland, unwind in a comfy familiar atmosphere, or just enjoy conversation without having to exert your vocal cords, this is the place to be.

The menu features Irish favorites such as the Guinness Steak and Mushroom Pie, Beer Battered Fish and Chips, Minced Beef Pie, and a traditional Irish Full Fry breakfast available on the weekends.

The Brogue has been a Port Credit staple for 10 years and was founded by the Donnelly family. It’s a laid back typical pub where you will find a good selection of Irish beers.


229 is a new late-night-eats-joint that recently opened in Port Credit. 229 is unique for Central American street food made in-house and from scratch. “The menu will include tacos, Central American food, really nice tapas and will be open until 3 am so people can come and eat too, like other chefs and people that are hungry late at night. I wanted to have that option, since there isn’t one in Mississauga. I thought I could cover that market. I’ll be making fresh tacos that you can get in Mexico, fresh tortillas from scratch, and pupusas which are from El Salvador” says Kerkmann. This place is a bit on the smaller side but if get in you will be in for one of the best late night meals. Remember it opens at 6pm.
