They served only small plates on Sunday and Monday nights. Our favorite was the the Smoked duck breast. It was nicely presented, good portion, flavorful, and the fatty layer not too thick. The beer expert of our party claimed that their IPA was the best he ever had and he had travelled the world and tasted countless beer.

Finally decided to visit this place and we were immediately impressed by the warm atmosphere, knowledgable and friendly staff and incredible selection of Craft taps - those are the truly good things about this place. Now for the rest... The food menu is very small and limited from a selection perspective and terribly over priced for what you get. The... More

We were duped by the positive reviews! Not impress at all, 2 beers, a hamburger and a plate of fish and chips (2 small and not crisp portions of fish) $80! The menus were printed sheets of paper done with not enough ink so pages were all blackish and difficult to read, and they had this pretentious "hipster" mason jar... More

Brothers used to be an Ottawa staple. Good food, good beers, nice service. Our dinner on Sunday was a disaster - apparently the chef left in early January. The first three beer we ordered were off, and the service perfunctory. Go somewhere else until they sort themselves out.

Good selection of beer. But yikes. Fine dining prices with barely diner service. Still doesn't compute. Four beers a few Fridays ago. Fifty dollars. Fifty! A three-foot delivery and little in the way of service. The glasses themselves were kind of full. There are other options close by that won't break the bank or the mind. See what you think.... More

A terrific place to go with the family. The beer is, or course, very good and the choice is always fantastic, but the meal also can please to everyone. For four years now, we enjoyed a romantic new year's eve diner and this one was the absolute best. I still dream of the elk tartar and of the desserts with... More

We go often at this place, my family and I. Even the little girl, 10, enjoyed very much her flat iron steak and her 7Up. The adults are always amazed by the choice of beers. It is quite a pleasure to pair the food with the beer and the waiter knows his business very well ; his suggestions fit the... More

Went there on short notice with a friend of mine. I was quite surprised about the great selection of on tap and bottled craft beer from various locations. My Dr. Feelgood did it's job but that might have been related to the 7% of alcohol 😉. Sunday and Monday seems to be "share your small plates" evening, so we had... More

Went to try this new place. The choice of beer is amazing. For food we had Terrine, croquette and flat iron which is a steak. Everything was excellent. But they should go easy on the salt because the fries are too salty. We made a reservation to be on the safe side. At 7:00 pm the place started to fill... More

They have an excellent selection of both microbrewery beer that changes regularly and some interesting imports. The Trappist that they have on tap is exceptional but at 10% it has quite the kick. The bartender was very knowledgeable about the current selection and while the menu is not extensive the food is very good.

Thank NLtrout
