“Best Pub in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

We went there for the hockey game Habs - Bruins last saturday !
The atmosphere was so great, the pub was full of hockey fans.
Very Good Service.
Definitely the best Fish&Chips I've ever had so far, and portions were huge ! And affordable prices. (approx. $15)
Totally worth it!
Full Canadian Experience: watching hockey in a canadian pub, eating pub food and drinking canadian beer. What else ?!

“Great sports bar & excellent food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

My husband stopped in on a recent business trip. The meal was great, no complaints. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Lots of beer choices. ;)
Overall, it was a great sports bar/restaurant.
Only downfall, was having to go down to the basement for the washrooms.
But I would still recommend.

“Great Sports Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

This restaurant was a great place to get a couple beers and lots of food. I loved that it had Turducken on the menu. My wife had a burger with peanut butter on it, which was fantastic. It was a laid back atmosphere despite being a sports bar.

“Best Sports Bar in Ottawa Market”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

The pints of draft beer were reasonably priced for around $6.50. The domestic draft was cheaper and the Canadian was actually on special for $5.00 because the Sens were playing. The nachos were delicious and were half price because of the Sens game as well. There were different specials listed for every day/night of the week. Unlike the "Real Sports Bar" around the corner this place isn't a complete rip off.

The atmosphere is great for a sports bar. It looks modern and hip but doesn't go too overboard. You feel like you're in a sports pub and not a cheesy club. There's plenty of high quality TVs throughout the place. The bartender was super fast and friendly.

We were originally going to have more food but got filled up on the nachos. The plates of food flying out of the kitchen looked great and I'll definitely be headed back to eat there one day soon.
