“Good TV's, poor beer selection, bad food”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

I've been frequenting this pub every few months for the past year. They carry the typical big name beers, and don't have any local or Ontario craft beers (kind of disappointing). I recently had the hot wings, I could not believe how disgusting the flavour was, a mix between ketchup and chili powder. I ate 3 of the wings and then sent them back, I've yet to find something on the menu that I would order again.

I keep giving this place a chance, they've got lots of bright big tvs so its great for watching the game, the staff as of late has been friendlier than previous visits but overall I wouldn't recommend someone to go here for food or an appetite for a delicious beer.

“There are better places nearby”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

There are many good places to eat or have a beer on Bank Street. While Berryman's is not bad, it pales in comparison to the others.

“Good place to watch sports, drink beer, eat light meals”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

I've been to the Berryman several times in the last few months to watch soccer matches (it's their speciality). The beer and food are slightly more expensive than in rival establishments but the Berryman is a classier place too; it's clean, the staff are friendly, and there are even TV screens in the male washrooms so you don't miss any of the action. Breakfasts are large and feature high-quality food, even stretching to pulled pork with your eggs and various potato products. They are happy to talk to customers on Twitter too. I recommend this place.

“Good Pub Food and Great Staff”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Have been to the Berryman a few times for events hosted by the soon to be North American Soccer League club the Ottawa Fury Football Club. The Pub food was very good, especially the wings, and the beer on tap selection more than adequate.

With a bar full of noisy football fans the staff were very busy and handled the craziness with professionalism and good grace. I'm sure that once the NASL club starts playing in earnest next year, just down the street at the reconstructed Lansdowne Park, this pub will be a go to spot for football fans pre and post match.

“Great food, good atmosphere”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

This is one of my favorite pubs in Ottawa, located near the Glebe on the northern edge of Centretown. The food includes all the standard pub fixings. Particularly good are the pizzas. The restaurant also has great mid-week beer and appetizers specials as standard offerings.
