So cool!

The inner blasphemer in me loves this place! I would've give this place 5 stars but the food doesn't match the rest of the experience! It is good just not anything crazy!

Great beer selection, cool decor, but the food left something to be desired. I had the margarita pizza, it was incredibly bland. I would not return for food, only drinks.

I'm so tired of places like this - dirty old pubs that in the past have earned a great reputation but then never updated. Yes, this place has a beer bible. Most of the beers are available at the LCBO though. The food is on the low-quality side (e.g. what are those pizza crusts actually made of? pitas?) and the... More

Another of Ottawa's Institutions, if you are here from out of town this is one place you should not miss. In the summer time this is one of the hottest patios in the city, they have lots of outdoor seating, but its not bad in the off season either. The main attraction is that they serve almost every kind of... More

Came here with a friend for lunch. Ordered goat cheese pasta, so good & rich. We split calamari, very good & my friend got lasagna, was all good. Awesome atmosphere fun & eclectic. Will be back for sure.

I always have an ideal if a true pub as a place you can just hang out alone or with friends, some good seating along a nice eclectic and well decorated bar, some private area, good places to eat and this place ticks off all the boxes. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because I did... More

Great place to sit and relax and talk and eat and enjoy time with friends. Irish beer and Italian food, it is hard not to like the combination. Didn't disappoint. We arrived early enough to do all this before going to the theatre, not too far away. Nicely decorated with great staff.

This pub was a wonderful discovery for all of us! The ambiance and decor is charming and interesting; the food is excellent & reasonably priced. Half and full size servings on many items - excellent for smaller appetites. Loved it - definitely going back and bringing more friends.
