Ok, so we had a work thing at lunch. So the person wanted to go here. It was large group of us and we wanted a quick in and out. The waitresses were very average in their job. Nothing fancy, just doing what was required. The atmosphere is typical cookie cutter chain restaurant "pub". Close your eyes and walk into... More

Was in town for a Sens game. They answered my emails promptly. They service and food was excellent. The shuttle bus to and from the game for $ 3.00 each was great. After many years of going to games and trying different places and now I will go no where else. Well done!

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

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
