Like all the other Royal Oaks in Ottawa, it's dependable and a solid choice for any group looking for a quick bite or a drink. They often have good deals on certain nights for wings and different beer so make sure you check for that.

Friendly wait staff with specials every night and special events (live music, lobster boils, pig roasts, etc.) advertised now and then. You can't beat the fish & chips on Fridays - very fresh!

A place if your in a hurry. Nothing remarkable about this pub. The steak salad was pretty good. AND free links to local baseball.

Great service, decent food, and a spacious, renovated eating area. The pub also hosts a weekly board gaming night every Monday. Visitors looking for a decent pub meal and a chance to meet some new people and play a board game should stop by.

Lots of beer selections, an informal and comfortable atmosphere, a familiar and non-threatening menu. The food is not memorably good or bad, and that's not a bad thing for a pub. This is a good place if your focus is the people you're with, not...More

Well, it wasn't our first choice to grab some breakfast on a Sunday morning. It took close to 2 hours for our classic breakfasts (read: eggs, toast, bacon, coffee) to be served. I know they only had 1 servers on, but maybe you shouldn't serve...More

Love this pub! It was within walking distance of our hotel so glad we stopped here a few times during our trip. They seem a little short staffed but the staff they did have made up for it by being so super nice! I don't...More
