Local pub with my favourite dish. Guinness is always good and the service is friendly and helpful. Decor is getting a little tired and could use a freshen up. The patio while on Bank St is in a heavy traffic area, is a nice place on a warm day.

Great little pub. They accommodated 15 of us during a family reunion and did a fine job. They have great fish and chips and micro brewed ABC beer from a local brewer (good stuff). I was impressed with the service. We had a fairly large group and instead of having 1 server trying to keep our table going they put... More

I like Patty's and have gone several times. Today I booked for my poker club and asked for the patio. The person answering advised that there was a wasp problem. I agreed that in that case inside would be better and asked for one of the two areas beside the front door. When I arrived both areas were occupied. When... More

Service was excellent but food quality has gone downhill. My wife and I frequentlt visit and were with a group of friends recently. Although service was very good especially for such a large group, the food was disappointing. My potato and bacon soup was bland to the extreme and I could not finish it. My wifes blackened salmon (Was not... More

The food is as good, and maybe even better, that I've had in a lot of English pubs. At noon Sunday, the menu included an interesting brunch/breakfast choice. The food we ordered was well prepared, nicely presented, and plentiful. Minor quibbles: very ordinary coleslaw came in the standard small fluted paper cup, but there was a slice of pickle on...

Our family met up with some friends for lunch and we had a great experience. Our server was excellent, certainly not the surly one that other reviewers wrote about. Our orders were taken in short order and our food arrived very soon there after. Our group of six all had different meals and we were all unanimous that the food... More

The prior review summed up my recent experience there also. I have enjoyed the atmosphere at Patty's Pub and it is a great place to have a drink with some friends. The servers are always hit and miss and my last visit I am sure that I had the server that he was referring to. My friend was shocked by... More

This pub is such a contradiction. It has the potential to become the best pub in Ottawa (if not the country). All the elements are in place. Awesome, atmosphere, great staff (mostly), and good food. The only stick in the ointment is a single toxic personality in the guise of a server, who seems intent on destroying all of that... More
