Good service. Boring food. Went with hockey team. Average fast food version of pub food. Not impressed. Serving size was very good though.

Great food and service. Waiting for a 6pm flight this restaurant was a pleasant surprise as airport food places can be variable in quality but D'Arcy's meals hit the spot and we boarded the plane well satisfied. Thank you.

Last time I was visiting Ottawa, I ate at this restaurant. The service is excellent and the food and drinks were great. The shepherd's pie appetizer was awesome--four small servings. It was just perfect before an afternoon flight and the rum and coke was also good.

Not a huge fan of airport pub restaurants, the food is usually lacking as is the service. At D'Arcy McGee's both were great. Located right by gate 22, the location is convenient and we were able to walk right in and be seated. I ordered the chips with dip and they were addictive, followed by a typical pub entree of...

Eating at airports is not my first choice but this was a great experience! I had a Ruben sandwich and a pint of beer. Quality and quantity was great. Service and atmosphere were also excellent. Wifi was a little week and of course, the price was a little high. Overall a great lunch!

This was a great restaurant for an airport. The Guinness burger was juicy perfection with house made dressing on the salad. Grilled peppers and mushrooms made this burger amazing!

Stopped in with friends last winter and it was a great experience. The Apple Bourbon Sour was one of the best I've ever had. Great beer, great food, the service was good too! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Ottawa.

The service was very friendly and fast, but I was quite disappointed in the food. The portions are huge, but everything is so over salted, that even someone with low blood pressure would find it challenging. The onion soup could have been nice, but the salt so overpowered it that it could not be enjoyed. As for the fish and... More

I have eaten in many airport restaurants around the world and the food and service in D'Arcy McGee's are among the best I've had. We had a few hours between connections at YOW so opted for supper and were not disappointed. My wife enjoyed the shepherds pie and I had the chicken pie and we both had the side salads.... More

There were two of us for supper and the food was quickly served, delicious and our waiter was very friendly. I had the shepherd mini York pies and my sister had the steak mushroom pie. I want to acknowledge our waiter Patrick. I was in a wheelchair due to an accient and he was very friendly and accommodating.
