Fantastic food, great service, and consistently good. Always a line up to get in but the wait is very worth it! The Huevos Rancheros and scones are my favourite. Good for dinner too.

The Manx is a very rare find – an independent, authentic pub serving mostly local craft beers and honest, well-prepared food. The atmosphere is cozy, intimate and friendly. Excellent service and reasonable prices. This place is so incredibly genuine that we felt as though we were back in London! One of the best pub experiences we’ve had in Canada; we’ll... More

Always a great spot for a beer and dinner though not a lot of choice in food on the menu. What they do have though is always good. Busy place but worth a wait

Another delicious dinner, fish and chips, lamb . It is a place when we go back to Ottawa that I will definitely go back to. Our friends go to Ottawa a few times a year and they try other places but always go back to the Manx as they know they will get great food for good prices.

What a find! This downstairs true "pub" has apparently been pouring a wide selection of craft ales (well before the craft-boom) and serving delicious comfort food for ages. Went there with friends and they told us that Manx Pub is a local favourite, though 'quietly.' Got crowded and loud and busy, but we sat through the tail end of brunch... More

Had heard great things about this place for a long time, so happy to have finally had the chance to go! It is always a good sign when on a blustery, cold day there is a line-up 10 minutes before they open! Sunday brunch is a great experience. Really nice choices on the menu, making it hard t come to...

Wow, what a tiny, unassuming drinking hole. Band was great, not enough seats though.. Lots of fun, but wish there was a smoking terrace as opposed to the street!

We stumbled upon this pub four years ago and have made a point to visit it annually. It is one of our favorite pubs in Ottawa. Although the tables are small and seating is often tight during dinner hours, the food and drink have always been well worth close quarters with the other diners. The atmosphere is casual and patrons... More

A friend an I went to Dinner last night. We had Crab cakes and spring rolls appetizers they where excellent. Pork Chops special was exceptional. They have a great beer menu. This is a wonderful place for dinner and a conversation.
