The Loon is a regular stop for Friday lunches. The food is nothing spectacular but it does offer a good selection of pub fare, Burgers, and Pizza all of which are good. The real reason that The Loon enjoys a special place in my heart is the constantly changing selection of craft beers. The list changes frequently and offers man... More

Came for drinks. Good beer selections - rotates weekly. Pretty quiet on a Saturday night. Lots of seating - inside, large outdoor patio and a smaller patio inside the "mall' Did not eat.

Guys. It's Ottawa on a Thursday night.The noise and dust outside are horrible. I come to sit inside instead and ask for the sound on the TV to be turned down. There are three other customers with at least 50 empty seats. Don't tell me it's "peak hours" and you can't do that! Try smiling and not spending the rest... More

I don't know why the other reviews on here are so glowing. The only good thing about this place is the patio. Other than that, the food is below average and nothing special. The service here needs to be improved: the waitstaff was not friendly at all and seemed generally indifferent. There are much better choices nearby.

I came here with my family a while back and had the hummus platter - it was absolutely delicious, and the hummus appeared to be hand-made. The beer was crisp and refreshing and the service was fantastic!

Was their on Tuesday for wing night for the first time. The wings were excellent and did not disappoint. The place was hopping with regulars. Good spot to visit with the boys or friends. Always sports on the TV. Thumbs up.

Tolerable wait for service. The waiter was a bit blunt but then realized that the 6 of us were from Ottawa. Seemed to change his tune when he came back with our first round. No food served after 11 pm. That didn't go over to well with us. Could have at least had munchies of some sort.

Stopped by here in between games at the Brier, because anything closer to TD Place was to busy. Service was good and staff were friendly. Decor could use a little bit of work. Bathrooms so-so. Seems to have fair selection of beers. Food wise I thought they were just okay. My wife and I had the fish and chips,our daughter... More

Haven't been here in the winter before but found the service just as good as during the summer. The beer battered fish and chips with home cut fries were excellent and perfect after a long skate on the canal. The Reuben sandwich was generous (but put more sauerkraut on it please). Nice casual place to gather.

The staff was very friendly as were the patrons. A & L sports a great selection of local beer. I had raspberry stout cask that was very nice on a December evening as the Senators beat the Hawks. I was warned by the staff that Ontario has a law that burgers must be medium well (ovecooked). Other than that it... More
