I had previously been to Atomic Rooster for live music, and I was surprised to discover that they have a pretty decent kitchen. They have decent pub fare (the pulled pork nachos are really good). Their ribs are really good and decently priced. I also like the crab cakes and the eggplant parmesan. The only thing I have ordered that... More

Cheap food and good beer. The service was swift and the staff cheerful. The only downside was the waitress thought spreading the spilt food round the table with a cloth passed for cleaning it.

I came for lunch and ordered beef stew. I got a bowl of gravy with three small morsels of beef, and a huge amount of quartered mini-potatoes, some of which were burnt. This was a shameful rip-off. I had an okay breakfast here once, but this is enough to turn me off. Wasted 11.00 for zip.

First time back here in a few years, live music gives this place good atmosphere, nice selection of micro brews, a couple of them I had never seen in Ottawa with server that is knowledgeable about them. This is a character place that seems to have a lot of regulars. Didn't have food here this time but other reviews seem... More

The Atomic Rooster has an excellent selection of local beers in every taste and flavor. I really enjoyed a Beau's wheat beer. The food is quite good too, mainly sandwiches, but with a few signature dishes available too. I had the Duck Gumbo and it was good. The restaurant features daily burger specials with different recipes available and also features

This is a great spot to go to for a traditional breakfast. Wait staff was great and very attentive. It's our new oh to breakfast spot.

Wake up Ottawa, and leave your frigging couch and TV for a chance to see live local musicians perform some great music during the week or on the weekend. Come in for a beer or 2, talk and meet some new people who also have the the love of live music.

We stumbled onto Atomic Rooster on a frigid Sunday morning and were pleasantly surprised. The menu had something for everyone and the room had a cosy well-worn look made interesting by its variety of brightlly painted tables, the work of local artists. The walls that month featured attractive Ottawa-themed B&W photographs for sale at reasonable prices. My favourite, of course,... More
