Street food with an outdoor kitchen. The interior is being renovated so during the summer they have an outdoor patio and outdoor kitchen. Ordered two sandwiches, chips and salsa and two sodas and paid almost $70! Food was just okay nothing amazing. Won't be back.

Clever menu with Canadian politicians. The beer was nice and cold. Food was okay (certainly not great). Good location. Service was lovely.

Had lunch here a few times. It's an OK restaurant, but it's all about the name. If you want half-decent food near Canada's centre of government - go here...or 27 other nearby restaurants.

I've always been happy with the Pub and was looking forward to lunch on their patio (which faces Parliament Hill). They are closed for renovations and probably won't be open until the Fall.

I have never been here but walked by it a million times. It was very rustic inside and the service was great. Food was pub fair but still very good. Happy to go back.

We went here on a friday night and although the service was good and the food was actually not too bad, the atmostphere was rather subdued (in fact, so was the entire Sparks pedestrian mall). Prices were fair (could've been better). Again, the big winner...More

The Sparks Street area is a bit of a wasteland, but if you're stuck here and looking for a decent meal, The Parliament Pub will do the trick. The service is friendly and the food is good. I would have given it 4 stars, but...More

We were just looking for a light lunch and the server was so helpful he even offered to send us to another place but in the end he suggested exactly what we wanted. A tasty shared sandwich.

We were seated outside on the patio with a view of the Parliament Buildings and the folks walking past the pub. The server/barman was very friendly and helpful. The food was fine and delivered hot in a reasonable amount of time. Price was ok too....More
