In 1909 when Mimico was a small farming and
railway community to the west of Toronto, The Windsor Public House was
established adjacent to the train tracks near the Mimico train station.
In 1958 the Windsor Public House was purchased by Jerry and Olga Chemij and in
1971 they changed the name to The Blue Goose Tavern.
The business remains in the Chemij family to this day and carries over a half
century of their family values.
The Blue Goose Tavern is known internationally for
its friendly atmosphere, a wide variety of ice cold beer, the Sunday matinee and the walk-up food counter.
Over the years many Mimico residents have called The Blue
Goose Tavern their "local".
There have even been three visits by
Lord Stanley himself after two Mimico born NHL hockey players, Brendan Shanahan
and David Bolland (twice), won the spring
prize and brought the Stanley Cup home to "The Goose".
The size and esthetics of The Blue Goose Tavern has
also caught the attention of film makers. "The Goose"
has been used as a backdrop for over 20 films, including both movies and TV
The Blue Goose Tavern is a proud member of the Mimico
/ South Etobicoke community and sponsors multiple lacrosse, baseball, hockey and
soccer teams. Many sports teams use The Blue Goose Tavern
as the place to quench their thirst.
If you've never experienced a night or Sunday afternoon at
"The Goose", you must make a point to treat yourself. The outside patio
is a very popular spot to eat and enjoy a beverage during the warmer months.
