We visited this location of D'Arcy Mcgee's on April 12th. We wanted dinner early because we were going to the Sens game. The server seemed distracted, and forgot to ask for the drink order from one of the guests- me! She did come back immediately, though. The food came promptly and was what we had ordered. It was adequate. Nothing... More

The food is good. The atmosphere is good. The service is good. It's the kind of place that's great to meet your friends and get your drink on!

A fun place to enjoy one of their many varieties of beers on tap-especially the Irish ones! Food is tasty and always fresh. My favourite is the salmon (with chips of course) and my daughter always chooses Darcy mcgees because of the veggie burger( the best in ottawa) Staff is always friendly and fun. There is no rushing you out... More

I've been here before, and had better service and better atmosphere. This was a Saturday night, and it was almost dead. Only about 10 other people inside. Despite this, service was sloooowww... On-tap beer was watered down or off-tasting. Switched to bottled. Didn't like their appetizer menu either. We just wanted nachos, but had to order Blarney Chips, which were... More

Went for Canada Day lunch to this pub. I was pleasantly surprised. In addition to having gluten-free beer (eh!), I had an excellent roasted chicken and the family all enjoyed their food. Service was very good. Waitress checked on food allergies properly. NIce "smoke-free" terrace. We will return.

Delicious food. I have never been dissappointed but there are not many choices.The beet salad with steak is great, so are the pot pies. Waitress recommended the seafood and I was grateful. It was awesome. I like the pubish atmosphere but it can bet rather loud..but it's a pub...so that's ok, just mention that you want a quiter spot and... More

Darcy McGee's in downtown Ottawa is a regular stop for me when in Ottawa on business. Food is average, frankly, but the service is good and the pub has always good activity when I'm there. Nothing spectacular jumps off the menu, but expect a pub dining experience, not a formal restaurant. Just learned of a new brew pub (Mill St... More

An Irish franchise pub lacking in wow! The choice of beer was good, food as expected for a chain and atmosphere zilch. Had we visited alone this could have been deadly but with friends we made our own fun. The service needs a bit of a rocket up the backside. All in all, not a memorable pub.

went there for a retirement party. Food platers looked great but the service was lacking and not everyone was offered food. If you were sitting at the ends of the table the waitress offered food but didn't make her way to the others/
