Fantastic

Love the food at the Arrow and the Loon. The pesto chicken wrap is the best in the city. Awesome selection of beer, and the kegs are always fresh. Friendly staff. My favourite place for a casual meal and drink.

I went to to the Arrow and Loon a couple of months ago for breakfast and would not go back, if someone paid me. I had heard good things about this place in the past, but that it wasn't as good as it used to be. Well, if it was ever good it was a while ago. We started off by ordering two coffees - both of the cups were DIRTY, and one had a couple of mystery things floating in it. I asked for a new one and considered leaving, but was convinced by my friend to stay. We ordered the standard bacon and eggs breafasts, which were cold, and the eggs tasted like they had been reheated a couple of times as they were quite rubbery. The service was slow despite there hardly being anyone in the restaurant, and in general the place was just grimy looking. The Arrow and Loon is now a running joke between my friend and I when we are unable to decide where to eat. It was just terrible and I will never go back.

I've been a number of times as I like the patio and location and I keep hoping that each bad meal was just an off day. The food is getting worse, in my opinion, the pizza I ordered last time had very odd 'squishy' chicken that seemed artificial. odd. The menu seems too big for the place to handle and they no longer have interesting beers. They should have kept the original smaller menu from a few years ago. I'd rather pay more for a better meal. Wings are ok.

I visited the Arrow and Loon with a group of friends for dinner and drinks the other night and had a wonderful time. I decided to try out the special of the night, a very nice steak. Our server Adam was great! Even though he was busy with other tables he still made time to stop and make us feel welcome. Thanks Adam, we will see you soon

We just ordered take out from the this restaurant and it was the worst take out I have ever had!!! I ordered the fish and chips for $11.99 and the chips were still partially frozen. The fish was disgusting. The batter was soggy and the fish was obviously freezer burned and possibly a little off. The food was totally inedible and I had to throw it out. Totally unacceptable for the price!! My husband's sandwich was only marginally better. DO NOT order take out from this restaurant ever! Not sure what the food in is like but I don't plan to find out!

I attended your bar and grill last night with a group of friends and really appreciated the service that was given to us by a waiter named Adam...I did not appreciate the fact that he was the only server in the pub and not even the manager would give this gentleman a helping hand when it was really busy. I did appreciate the fact that Adam did wait on us; as well as a birthday party, a hockey team party, and yet still had excellent service even though he did not receive any help from any of the management. I believe that the management skills were quit inadequate due to the the fact that there were no other servers scheduled to help this poor gentleman out when the management was odviously aware that this pub would be busy on this particular evening. My overall review is that the mangement skills need much improvement and that this particular server "Adam" should receive a gold star for excellent work when management wouldn't even lift a finger to help him...GOOD JOB ADAM

The steak tasted like charred gas, it was gristly and a bit overcooked. The vegetables were huge chunks of uncooked eggplant and zucchini. My fork was dirty.

My good friend at the Ottawa 67s told me about this place to drop by before the game. Well he told me it was busy because it is great, never knew how busy it could be. Amazingly the service was awesome for how many people were there. Had to order my buddies burger (named after him) Spicy Balloch. I can tell you the best $30 I have ever spent at a restaurant in one night. Be back for sure. The waiter Tom was excellent

Sadly, I have to come here more often than I like as it is a convenient meeting place for friends. Where to start.... The "fruit" with the breakfast is a super-thin slice of melon and a piece of orange so small, I wouldn't even use it to garnish a drink. The bacon was only half cooked. The hot chocolate was lukewarm, the coffee was watered down and disgusting. The grilled potatoes were soggy and limp. The server was very friendly, but that was the only redeaming feature.

The lettuce was wilted, the tomatoes were mushy. One of our forks were dirty, the poached egg seemed to be missing most of its white, the 'fruit' was a wafer thin canteloupe and slice of orange. My mother got the wrong toast (she wanted dry) she waited approximately 15 minutes for her toast after the meal arrived. My daughter had pancakes - they brought no syrup or butter... after asking they finally brought syrup had to ask again for the butter - by which time the pancakes were cold and the butter was practically frozen.

This place is hit-and-miss. Their specials are usually quite palatable, but where they shine is for cheap weekend breakfast. Standard fare, no complications, not too loud, plenty of space to read a paper. Interior courtyard makes it great for parents of younger children who want to play instead of eat. I tip my hat to the Arrow & Loon for trying to provide local fare and Ontario and Quebec beers. That said, I have been disappointed by a la carte fare. Good summer patio, too, which is lacking in the Glebe.
