Basic, sort of cozy, family-friendly pub. Beer is ok, food is ok, service is ok. Nothing to get too excited about, but it’s serviceable.

I’ve been there a few times, a good pit-stop when you go biking or skating on the Rideau Canal. Inside the place feels like some kind of family friendly sports pub, the type you find all too often in the States. Large place, impersonal, feels like a chain. A little front patio with no charm. Beers are not very good but not as bad as some make it to be. They usually have 4 or 5 of their own beers along with “guest beers” which are mostly macro stuff. Very basic beers, clean, no personality, mostly devoid of hops, bland but mostly not offensive. Decent pub food, a bit above the usually pub fare selection. Oh well, maybe we should find a new pitstop for our Canal Rideau treks.

More of a sports-bar/restaurant for families than brew pub. Service did not know much about beers they served but it was polite. Average food as you might expect from typical sports bar. Beer was just OK but improved recently.

Decent food, atmoshphere is alright although patio is on a busy street, usually 5 of their own brews on tap but as has been said they are hit and miss - at least they now have some seasonals once in a while. Still one of the only brewpubs in the city depending on how much time you have might be worth a visit. Especially good to stop in for a pint if you are waiting for a table at The Works (great burger joint) across the street.

Nothing wrong with this place overall. Their own beer is hit and miss, but you can usually find a cask, which has value on its own. Food is decent, decor is fine.

Mmmm...well, this is the only survivor of the original 4 brewpubs in Ottawa....wished Abe and Roscoes was still there....beers are mediocre to decent (especially in the last year, they are now having seasonals regularly). The Bank street location is nice and cosey, with the 5 originals, and macro crap. The food never dissapoints, upscale pubgrub, with great happy hour specials on appetizers M to Th. I still go once in while to eat.

Nice little place with a great downstairs if you have a big group. Finding a place to sit upstairs could be a challenge. Beer selection is adequate with the obvious bias towards their own brews. Food is normal pub fare, nothing noteworthy. Patio in the summer is really nice on Bank.

La place est trop commerciale pour la sélection il manque beaucoup de choix et leurs bières sont o.k. Le sevice recu chaque fois était pas ce que je recherchais et la valeur pour mon argent ne compte pas beaucoup quand la bière est ordinaire. Bref il n’est pas un incontournable.

One of the few decent patios (but small) in the downtown area, and with free parking too. The downstairs has a nice dark pub feel but the upstairs is left a little wanting. Beer selection (commerical) is satisfactory, but you order their homebrew when you are here. They had 7 different varieties to choose from this weekend. Service is average, but they keep their food choices a cut above the overage pub fare and at a reasonable price too. Well worth a visit.
