breakwall bbq

Welcome to Breakwall Barbeque, one of the original premium smokehouses in Toronto.  At the heart of our story is our low ‘n’ slow smoked meats, dripping with flavours cultivated from our homemade sauces and dry rubs. Here in the restaurant we pride our self on our ingredients’ selection, we keep it Canadian – picking high cut high grade meats from local Ontario farms. In addition to using the best ingredients, our top of the line equipment and kitchen staff is what sets us apart.


At the helm of our operation is head chef and owner Shane Ryan. Shane uses his 24+ years of culinary experience to combine French, Italian and American styles of cooking that are infused with smokey flavours, adding a new layer of excellence to these classic modes of cooking. From a very young age Shane has had the privilege of working at several landmark restaurants in the beaches, where he fell in love with the ambience and culture The Beaches neighborhood provides. As time grew, Shane knew that he wanted his own restaurant to be situated here in The Beaches.  In 2011, Breakwall was born. Here Shane built a team of servers and experienced chefs that has stuck together and grown as a family – a testament to the fact that once you come to Breakwall, you can’t help but stay. At the forefront of this team, is our general manager Virginia Mcintosh, who ensures all our staff holds true to our exceptionally high standard of service and customer satisfaction.
