Ok so here's a really great spot for beer in the heart of Ottawa. Thursday night we also came into Oysters for a buck each. For those of you who love them you'll like this place. Great service too. Enjoy!

The only reason that it gets a poor review instead of a terrible is that the outdoor patio is a pleasant place to sit and talk. The beer was OK. A slab of mystery meat on a bun is $16 and I paid an extra...More
