Even though I personally do not like the place nor the food but since you have kids: Boston Pizza?

Another vote for home. Any place that is showing the Raptors on TV is not a place for 8 and a 11 year old.

Agreed. Make it a pub night with wings, nachos, pizza and drinks they like.

I've watched a lot playoff games at bars this season, but this evening my friend's having a BBQ before tonight's Game 6. May 30th when the NBA Finals start, I will be returning to the bars unless of course I get lucky and score tickets to the games. LOL

The two biggest sports bars I've been to with the best TV's were the Real Sports Bar downtown and WEGZ Stadium Bar in Vaughan.

in 2016, Cineplex was showing the playoffs right from Round 1 and I really wish they would broadcast them again. We were paying $6 to watch a game on a nice big movie screen with good sound too.

Real Sports downtown Toronto. Get there 2 hours before the game to get a table or make reservations in advance. Otherwise, it's too loud for kids. You're better off staying at home.

I am scoring some NBA finals tickets which cost me both an arm and a leg.

This^ I would love to watch the playoffs in the big screens! Hopefully, they do something for the finals.

Games are also televised on ABC (American feed). My antennae (I live in Toronto) gets the Buffalo ABC feed.

Don't forget ABC network will televise EVERY game in Prime time. Watch it on cable or tv signal from Buffalo station WKBW. We the North!

They are still too young. Games start at 9pm for this series (except Sunday game)... so your looking at near midnight finish.

It’s your kid but I would not take my 8 year old out that late with a bunch of drunk yahoos at the bar.

Some places may not even allow your kids there that late

I would reserve Jack Astor’s in advance. I was there with my son the last game and you would be surprised how many other families were there with children. Everybody was watching and cheering like normal people. Nothing out of the ordinary. You can always leave whenever you want, it’s not like you have to stay the whole game.

The next day is a Friday, and we're approaching June so elementary school is pretty much done now. Lighten up a bit.

I would however go to a family friendly oriented restaurant such as Jack's or Boston Pizza since it's in the burbs

For best experience, I have my home theater with my projector set up downstairs and we just call our friends and family over to house.

It's like pot luck, everyone brings their own food and we just enjoy. I went to Jurassic Park once, and although it was a good experience, never again LOL
