Try the Stone Fruit Margarita - nummy! Even small Nachos are enough to share. Easy walk from Shopping and the Fairmont, also from the Parliament Building.

If you want a great Pub and place to eat, this is the place. It is right in the heart of the Parliament area and gives you the old Irish Pub feeling. The deck is also a great place to sit and people watch!! We loved it and went back a couple of times!!

Ordered the one piece fish and chips. Tasty with an ample piece of golden to dark brown battered haddock. Chips seemed hand cut and fried up nicely. Coleslaw was amazing. There was a nice sesame seeds flavour that complemented everything nicely. My wife had the steak and mushroom pie. It had very good flavour. Could have been meatier and seemed... More

I had a guiness pie, which contained that long slow cooked meat I like so much, and a good local beer. The place is nicely located on a street corner for some good views while eating

so glad we stopped here, what a great place. You can sit on the patio or go inside and enjoy a great Irish Pub environment. from The fish n chips to the meat pies the food was excellent as well as the service. There was a great selection of beer and of course Irish whiskey !

We didn't realize it was a chain but it didn't matter because we had a great meal here! We started with the shrimp & bacon donuts - sort of like hush puppies that came with a lemon aioli sauce that they should bottle up and sell! We all ordered something different and we were all happy with our choices especially... More

We loved the place. Beer is very good and the food is awesome at a very reasonable place for the quality and location. Service was outstanding. Friday evenings they have oysters bar for free, excellent idea.

This weekend we escaped the heat of Ottawa's BuskerFest for lunch at Darcy's. This is the best location for the irish pub mini chain. Beautiful wooden mouldings and panels. The staff is consistently super. The food and drinks are good, but the ambience of the place is amazing, especially if you go on weekdays when parliament (across the street) is... More
