MacLaren’s is a casual sports bar with pub grub, pizza & ribs and also has a sizable space for playing billiards. Can you write a post about pubs in Ottawa without mentioning MacLaren’s? We don’t believe so! MacLaren’s, located right on Elgin (you won’t miss it, trust us), has welcomed beer enthusiasts and sports fans since 1997. To this day, the location at Elgin and MacLaren remains a fixture! From the dozens of billiard tables to the numerous HD-screen TVs throughout the establishment, MacLaren’s is a fun place to watch the game – whatever that may be at the time! It’s a laid-back sports bar that serves pub fare like pizza and ribs, classic appetizers like mozzarella sticks, and much more. The price is reasonable for the experience of watching the game – it makes you feel spoiled to have such a great bar/pub atmosphere!
You can shoot pool at this relaxed sports-themed bar, watch sports on their big-screen TVs, and enjoy casual food and drinks. Bring some friends and go in for an evening of pool and conversation surrounded by sports memorabilia at MacLaren’s on Elgin, which has 25 billiard tables that can be rented by the hour. You can watch all levels of sporting events on their six 80-inch HD televisions while you’re there. MacLaren’s extensive menu features traditional pub fare such as nachos, wings, sandwiches, burgers, and pizza. Choose from their many draughts, bottled beer, and cider options, or complement your meal with a glass of wine, a cocktail, or a unique soft drink.
Visit with friends for pool, dinner, and beer. We have been there a lot of times and have never had a bad meal. The staff has always been pleasant. We’ve had everything from small bites at midnight after a Sens game, to burgers, sandwiches, and pizza, to a delicious three-course full meal of pork chop and all the trimmings. It’s not a gourmet restaurant, but it’s hard to beat for a bar. Although there wasn’t a kid’s menu, it wasn’t a problem as they were able to share a pizza. Our server was really friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious too. The $12 for an hour of the pool was also excellent. So, MacLaren’s is one of the best bars Ottawa offers you, your friends, and your family. If you are in the city, we recommend this bar for a definite visit!
