“A bit of an institution”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice pub with excellent beer. The food is predictable pub fare, but hearty and competently done. Great atmosphere. Nearly always packed but somehow there's always a table tucked somewhere.

Good wine and beer selection. While not an extensive menu, the food was very good....I recommend the fish tacos

“Best meal in months”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is a small pub in a moist and dark basement. First impression was rough, but once I ate began eating everything turned around. This was the best food I have eaten in Ottawa. Live music was great too.

“Best Breakfast in Ottawa”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

I loved this place. The breakfast was so good. They have some very offbeat breakfast options and the potatoes with breakfast are the best. So good. It is very small in there and very popular so prepare to wait awhile. Also has some great vegetarian options.

“Grease bomb”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

My friends rave about this place. I went once, for dinner, and ordered a grilled chicken wrap. I think a Big Mac would have been healthier and had fewer calories. My wrap was full of sauces and it was a soggy mess. Not a veggie in sight. They should skip all the mush and put actual food in the wrap. It tasted like a peanut butter and chicken sandwich, and felt about the same in my gut. The fries are great, but the food is definitely overpriced and overhyped. There was a long wait for a table and it is a very cramped space. For a similar price, there are so many good places to eat in Ottawa. Don't waste time waiting for a table in this one.
