Wow, great place, ambiance and service. I ordered the prime roast beef with mash potatoes and vegies and my husband salmon. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant. My next visit in Ottawa, Lieutenant’s Pump will be first on my list.

Stumbled on this venue during the construction on Elgin Street. Great find. Good selection of beer on tap. They have Cider on tap as well. Did not eat but the food looked great as it passed us by. Great service. Will visit again.
