Clean typical governmental store. Broad aisles, beer is not the focus, big lighting. Rather boring selection with only 10 to 12 worthy of interest than most people with 500 ratings will have had already. Interesting to obscure european lagers if anything and rather good prices.

Best beer store in Ottawa. Staff doesn't know anything about beer but are generally willing to enquire for you. Selection is mainly Ontarian, with loads of Eastern European lagers, a few british ales and the odd Belgian. If you're in Ottawa though, this is your one-stop shopping center.

My first time in an LCBO...if this is the best beer selection in a metro area of 1.5 million plus, I do feel sorry for Ontarians! A few crappy area micros, lots of Sleeman and MolsBatt -- 6 packs only to discourage discriminating tastes! A fair number of 3rd world lagers, just a couple of Belgians...nice-looking if expensive gift packs. Blah.

Établissement visité le samedi 18 novembre vers 10h. Ambiance: Très belle succursale, la section vintage est aussi très chaleureuse. Service: Je suis arrivé avec ma liste et le vendeur m’a tout trouvé et m’a fait quelques suggestions en se fiant à ce que je venais d’acheter. Sélection: Beaucoup de bières européennes en canette et en bouteille. Quelques microbrasseries ontariennes de disponible aussi. Sélection de cidre très pauvre. Chaque fois que je viens à Ottawa c’est un arrêt obligatoire. (34e rating d’établissement)

Si je veux m’acheter une bière importé, c’est la place à allé. J’ai plus de chance de trouver une non-canadienne rare qu’importe où au Québec.

Only saving grace for the LCBO is their sheer buying power - good selection compounded by interesting (though often re-occuring) seasonals. Unfortunately, the LCBO uses its buying power to fill the beer shelves with 30% cans and too many imported Asian lagers that all taste alike. Above average desire to assist is compounded by an outstandingly-poor staff knowledge of beers? Employees are given no prior knowledge of upcoming seasonals. There is a reluctance to check the inventory for in-stock and deliveries - common brush-off line is: A shipment is coming in tonight so we MAY have it tomorrow. So sad because many staff do really want to help but they don’t know where to start.

While it’s the best selction of any LCBO in Ottawa, it suffers from the typical problems of beer being shoe-horned into a provincially run wine and liquor store. There is a seemingly large beer section, but it is filled with plenty of imported pale lagers and some locals in 6-packs. Seasonal selections can be at times interesting. Clean, bright, well-lit, anonymous. Staff are mostly friendly, if hurried, but have little product knowledge. Might as well make a stop to check the seasonals if in town, but not really worth going out of the way for.

The beer selection is big and choices from many countries. The staff is helpfull.I also go for the wine. You get all the excellent wines from Ontario at very low prices. It is worth the drive from my home for the choices, prices and also gas price. Bravo L.C.B.O.

Flagship store for the LCBO in Ottawa. Great selection of beer, parking is actually pretty good considering it is downtown and it’s free! I always get a good selection when I visit.

Probably the best LCBO in Ottawa and they will bring pretty much anything that the LCBO has in for you if you ask. Staff have very little knowledge about the beer and you frequently have to have the item number before going to the store if you want them to order something or get something that is not up on a shelf. If you are visiting Ottawa from outside of the province I would recommend stopping here and Broue Haha across the river to get the best possible samples of things to buy to bring back with you.
