Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa at the corner of Sparks
and Bank Streets, the 3 Brewers is a Microbrewery where we brew
all of our beer on site. Steps from Parliament, we have a fantastic
location with views of the city. Our 2 floors offer potential for a great
bar night or the ability to accommodate large parties or events. In
summer we have a great patio that can accommodate close to 100.
Our menu is a blend of traditional French recipes with our unique
twist as well as Canadian comfort foods.3Brwers is a great place for
lunch, meeting friends after work or any other occasion.

Service was poor. We sat at our table for about 15 min while servers walked past us. Food not great. Beer was good.

Agréable terrace en saison, du monde mais le service reste très attentionné. 2ème visite pour nous (nous étions à l'intérieur la 1ère fois et c'était tout autant agréable), nous reviendrons sûrement.

We were seated very quickly and we chose in dining. Restrooms were clean. Service was great and you get real value for money for their meals
No complaints at all

The booking system was a amazing. A high chair was requested and it was ready at the table when we arrived. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was nice. The service was terrible! We had a one year iPod with us and there was no accommodation from the kids menu (vegetables instead of fries) and the adult meals were served before the child’s. There were long periods of time between visits from the serve and after asking for our bills it was a long wait to get them, then he had to come back with the machine. The server ended up at another table chatting with the patrons and I had to go get him so we could pay and leave because the child was getting fussy after sitting for 2 hours. A restaurant that has a kids menu should have a better sense of how to deal with young families.

I have visited the 3 Brewers multiple times and this was the first time that the service was poor. Our waitress was not attentive, made us feel like serving our table was the last thing she wanted to do, and overall made us feel unwelcome. Overall, the worst service experience I have ever had in my life. The food was great but I'm not sure that I will return for a while.

Friendly staff, nice location, but we sat at a table in front of door and, every time the door opened, strong gust of wind would blow which eventually blew my beer onto the person in front of me. Server offered free replacement which is nice but my friend still had beer on him. That table should be moved or not have people seated there.

Great experience. Had Saturday night reservations for 8:00 PM and received a text at 7:45PM saying our table was ready. Both food and drinks were brought our quickly and accurately throughout the night. Very friendly server.

Will definitely return.

The drinks were great. We ordered fries, chicken wings and Margharita Pizza . The Pizza was really bad. It was just pesto and sauce. We have been to Toronto 3 Brewers multiple times and we loved the Pizza. But here at the 3 brewers Sparks, the pizza was bad. It did not even look like a pizza, small round shaped bread with sauce and pesto. There was no basil and cheese how a Margharita pizza would have. Really disappointed.

This is not my first time visiting this location, and I was somewhat surprised that during a pandemic that the staff would be sitting patrons so relatively close together as they were. The table seated next to us, within about 6 feet were clearly somewhat "intoxicated" and felt the need to be almost yelling at each other, which during a pandemic should not be encouraged as it causes an "aerosolization" and spreads easily in the air. As well as the screaming child sitting on our other side, I am all for a family friendly environemnt, but enjoyment at this visit was a large put off for us. Although the service was sgreat it could not make up for the environement to enjoy being out.
Will we return for a visit? Probably not.

The waitress never came to ask if we needed anything after our meal was delivered. She passed by a few times and seem to be forgetting us. The only other time we saw her was to request the bill.

Our wedding anniversary! W we’re put at a a table with a noisy crowd, it took forever to get service, food was raw! I clearly made a note saying it was our wedding anniversary! I’m a chef/restaurant owner and I would never have my customers to be in a situation like we were! Never again at this place
