I love coming to this place to watch a hockey game! I've never had the food but it's a great place to grab a beer and watch the game since the atmosphere is very casual and the Senate is full of fans!

Came into town on St Patrick's Day and wanted some pub food. Super loud but fun environment. Quick and helpful service despite the holiday craziness. Food was good, not amazing but average pub food!

This is the best bar in Ottawa. Love the vibes in there and the food is excellent. Staff is always friendly and eager to help you with what ever you need, Deanna is my favourite with her bright smile and witty humour. 10/10 would recommend

Just finishing up a quick bite before taking the Senate's bus to the Sens game ( awesome... $10 gets us to and from the game). Chicken Caesar wrap excellent, and the beef taco is on special for $10, equally as good. Thanks to our server...More
