    Dinner was great. Significant servings, so value definitely there. Would like a slightly wider craft beer offering...but that's just us. :) Thrilled most of the food is made in house. We searched out a pub that didn't serve "Sysco Surprise" and all the prefab crappy heat & eat food that all the chain pubs in Ottawa serve. So very thrilled we tried Hunter's. Already planning our next outing ...bringing friends this time!!

    Food is good, generally nice ambience, and service is very good and accommodating. Only complaint would be the noise levels which I assume is typical of a popular pub. For someone who has slightly impaired hearing and/or is a soft talker, dinner conversation is difficult at best. I would recommend to friends, but with forewarning of noise issues.

    Our favorite restaurant never fails to impress us with its remarkable ambiance, exceptional service, and immaculate cleanliness. What sets it apart is the extra mile they go to ensure an outstanding customer experience. But the star of the show is undoubtedly their food. Each dish is a testament to their commitment to quality, freshness, and deliciousness. The ingredients they use are top-notch, and you can taste the difference in every bite. This restaurant is our go-to place for a reason, and we can't recommend it enough for anyone seeking a memorable dining experience.

    Service was excellent (as usual) and our meals were very good. Sadly, both the tea and coffee left something to be desired. Sorry, but a tea bag in a mug just doesn't measure up and the decalf was not the best quality. Further, while the musicians were good, the music was to loud even though it was an acoustic set - we ended up leaving because we couldn't hear each other. Despite this, I will go back to Hunters.

    We had a great experience at Hunter's Public House. We went for brunch. We were glad we were able to make a reservation as it's a rare opportunity in Ottawa and with a toddler it makes all the difference. The service was fast and very friendly, Connor was a fantastic host. There was live music, we really enjoyed Alex Lopez's set. His repertoire was varied with great classics, he has a beautiful voice, good guitar playing and presentation. We will definitely keep an eye on the schedule for him. Our toddler was mesmerized by him! We had the Special Benny's of the Day (with pulled pork, should be on the regular menu!), the Cluck and Chuck and the Kid's One Egger. Everything was delicious and fresh. Very well done! Bravo! Then we had dessert, cheesecake, which was good, but did not live up to the description that it was dense, as it was very creamy, but not as dense as a NY cheesecake would be, for example. The carrot cake was very surprising, very dense and with a strong spice side. The kids donut holes were tasty and crispy, our toddler liked them.

    The food was super fresh and very very good. We had the fried chicken sandwich with French onion soup as a side and the Big Crunch burger with fries. It was honestly the best fried chicken sandwich I’ve had. We went on a Sunday so I think there was a limited brunch menu. Location is a bit remote from Ottawa centre, but it must be a favourite of locals. Interior was comfortable and nicely appointed. There is a nice patio too. Our server was very friendly. All food made on the premises. Large selection of whiskeys and beer. We didn’t drink this meal but from what we saw other patrons order they looked amazing. Definitely worth going.

    Excellent brunch as always, it is now our most favoured spot. Can be busy and may have live entertainment (discourages conversation), so even the servers have challenges hearing your voice.

    The atmosphere was open and inviting. We were me by the friendly staff upon arrival, which was very nice! There is ample seating for many people here. The Beer Menu Boards are easy to read and identify who makes which particular beer. We saw a lot of food going past that looked absolutely delicious and plentiful in size. We played many of the available games at our table, which was really fun. We will be back again soon for more libations from the many different craft beers you have on tap as well as canned.
