    This is a sports bar, albeit an upscale one, in which you get everything you would expect in a sports bar: loud passionate fans having a great time. If this is what you are looking for, go for it!

    Awesome value at this place between 3-6pm: half price apps, good drink specials... the perfect spot to watch Champions League Soccer since the weekday games generally take place during happy hour. Highly recommend RS!

    Terrible service, took one hour to be served our meals. Extremely overpriced. Staff and management were very rude and disrespectful. Was insulted by manager for questioning a mistake the server made on our bill. Overall, very poorly run. Worst management and customer service I have ever experienced.

    Terrific flat iron steak. Hard to get a rsv unless you go early & they don't rush you out.Sometimes the sound system is too loud for conversation. S

    Food is excellent. Service was good. Great beer list. Only complaint - it's a little pricey; that's why we only go once or twice a year. Will go back and would recommend to others.

    RSB is great for big eater and avid drinkers. The 3-6pm special is for real! My tab was reasonable for someone with big appetite. Great place to speak loud, enjoy sports events on giant screen and take a buddy for his birthday. There's also a great view from time to time but it's not scenic.

    went for lunch with coworkers, very nice setting, lots of TVs, great for sports. Menu was kinda pricey, service is mediocre (waitress wasn't very knowledgeable). My co-worker asked for sweet mustard with her pulled pork sandwich, it was forgotten, asked for it a second time, was brought a white mustard and when asked if it was sweet mustard, we were told they didn't have any, and was about to walk away, so she asked for regular mustard and was brought dijon. I asked if the fries were crispy coated and she had no clue what I was asking. Another coworker ordered nachos, and there was barely any cheese on it or anything else for that matter. Over all, I don't think I will return for the food, but might for a hockey game for the TVs.

    Great spot right in the Byward Market. Very modern and the number of TV screens certainly allow everyone to see the action clearly. Food was a significantly positive surprise. Tasty, well presented and an overall delight.

    Had a great time service was incredible food was fantastic. The only thing that turned me off was when our day and evening were done I wanted to reserve for April 27th for UFC to be told there will be a 10 dollar cover charge to get in. With the cost of the beer wine and food i think that a cover charge is not right for patterns that will spend 200-300 dollars for an evening out.

    It's a high end sports bar! There are screens everywhere, with plenty of beer on tap, and the burgers are amazing. It's a very nice place, but if you're looking for a Local Heroes type of sports bar this is not the place for you.

    Superbowl Party was fantastic! RS really went all out. Bud Light and NFL sponsors too. The place to be for any and all sports related events for sure. Cajun dry rub wings a 'must'.

    So glad that Real Sports has expanded into Ottawa. This is exactly what Ottawa needed and the Byward Market is an excellent location for Real Sports. Our first visit was excellent. We rtied two different wings and the cheeseburger springrolls - all were excellent. Real Sports has an excellent beer selection and all the tv's you could ever ned including a 27 foot flatscreen over the bar. We are going back tonight with friends.
