The Morty's Story

Serving Waterloo's Best Wings Since 1981

Morty Taylor established Morty’s Pub on the corner of King Street and University Avenue in 1981. Back then the pub sat 76 people and quickly became a comfortable local hangout.

On July 27th 2000, we moved to our current location. Movers weren’t in the budget, so the day before the big move, our family, friends, staff and loyal customers grabbed tables and chairs and walked the 300 or so steps up the street to where we are currently located (272 King Street North)

Since the beginning, we have hosted millions of guests, prepared tens of millions of chicken wings and have been a place where the Kitchener-Waterloo community feels at home.

We are proud of the many unique homemade items on our menu like the daily soup, panzerottis, pizzas, 10oz burgers, lasagna and of course chicken wings. We consistently strive to deliver a memorable and fun experience with great food and service. Three decades later we are still an independent family-owned business.

Morty’s is like a home for many of us, and we hope that you feel at home when you’re in our home.

Thank-you for your patronage and allowing us to be your hosts. We hope that you will join us again where friends and neighbours gather.

Thank You for all the past and future memories.

Jay Taylor and Steve Campbell

A Special Note Regarding Covid-19 Corona Virus

Morty’s Pub has re-opened for curbside pick-up and 3rd party delivery (Skip The Dishes).

The health and safety of our customers and staff is paramount. New and developing information is being broadcast on a continual basis. As a community, family-owned business, it is imperative that we do our part to hinder the spread of COVID-19. 

Please note how we are making sure that you, and your family remain safe.

  • Morty’s Pub has always been dedicated to maintaining our kitchen facilities to the highest standard. We have developed our take-out protocols based on recommendations from the Canadian Restaurant Association and the Canadian Food Safety Group.
  • Your food has been prepared by food safety trained staff, cooked to safe temperatures, and packed safely.
  • All orders will be double bagged. The exterior, clear bag is biodegradable.  You can dispose of this bag immediately when returning to your home.  The ‘interior’ paper bag is recyclable and has not come in contact with any non-Morty’s staff.

We wish everyone all the best and ask you to stay safe.  Thank you for putting your trust in us.  We will continue to do everything possible to help everyone navigate these ever-changing times.

Thank you for your support.
