The Royal Oak: "Ottawa U's Favourite Pub" Ottawa Restaurant Tip by Canadian_girl

Ottawa Restaurants: 244 reviews and 367 photos

The Oak has numerous branches around Ottawa but my favourite is the Laurier Ave. location, right across the street from Ottawa U. This place is so popular that Ottawa U's official campus pub, "The Nox", went bankrupt last year. Great selection of beers (including Stella Artois), a relaxed & friendly (& bilingual) atmosphere, and very very good pub food.

Favorite Dish: Fish and Chips (with spicy fries, not the boring ordinary kind). Fan-freakin'-tastic!
Afficionados of English food will also enjoy the authentic mushy peas, although I think they're disgusting.

Address: 161 Laurier Ave. East, just west of King Edward.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: In Sandy Hill, right across the street from Ottawa U.
Price: US$11-20
Rating: 0
