Cute little spot. If you are just having a pint this place is ok. The food is awful, possibly the worst fish and chips I have ever had. But 3 other meals ordered at the same time were barely edible as well. The service was brutal as well. Possibly the most disappointing meal we have had since moving to Ottawa.... More

Just the best, quirkiest, non-chain, authentic place to be...If you can get in! Well worth the wait.

Quinn's is a local treasure which draws an intensely loyal clientele. It is cozy, crowded, has a hopping bar and dishes out pretty flavourful bar food. Two recent visits featured very different food: first, their pork and chicken tacos (excellent) and second, the burger (very good - a bit goofy with the vertical tower of onion rings on it) and...

Went to Quinn's to sit on the patio and test out the Ashton beer selection. Very nice patio and great pub food.

Quinn's is small but that's what I love about it! We came just for drinks, and we walked off the street and felt like we had walked straight into a pub in Ireland. They had a good selection of beer for a small place, and a good selection of other drinks if you're not into beer. I would definitely come... More

Love this place. Great rustic atmosphere where you can enjoy some pints in a real small quaint Irish pub like setting. Food is very good - not sure how they do it as the kitchen is just a little bit bigger than an airplane washroom. The Burger and Fries are in the top ten in Ottawa. Staff is great and... More

I've been to Quinn's a few times. The patio is really nice in the summer and I love going for wing night with the family. In the winter it kind of sucks though, it is really small and dark. My aunt likes to go but when it is dark she can not see as well as she has a visual... More

Quinn's is a fantastically cozy little pub on Bank Street. They serve Ashton Brewing Company beer among a few others they always have a seasonal on tap, but I love their Amber. On Tuesday they have cheap and delicious tacos!

I used to like this place. Small friendly bar, good beers on tap and a very good chef. But times have changed. Ashton Brewery (owned by the family) is the beer they push (and I mean PUSH); you have to really fight to find out what else they have. And I'm sorry guys, but Ashton beer, just isn't that good....

Dropped by at the urging of my son who loves this place. We live out of town and are glad we found it. We will return. Lots of Ashton brewing company beers along with a small but great menu. The Full Monty burger is great as are the fries. The club sandwich Erasmus tasty. Thursday is fried chicken night so... More
