Neighbourhood Pub Ottawa and Other Pin places??

Postby underachiever » Sun Mar 19, 2017 10:59 am

So I am going to be in Ottawa for 2 nights, tomorrow and Tuesday, and just wanted a little info. I see that Neighbourhood Pub has pins and food so I might check that out but I was wondering if there were other places for pins and food as well. I will be with my boss so I am not sure yet where we are staying and what he might be in the mood for but we have to eat anyway and if the place is close to us we could most likely check it out.

Looks like the machine lists are up to date, just wanted a recommendation for food and pins. Is the food good at the NP? Can't find a menu online except to say they serve wings,burgers, poutine and beer. Was hoping for a little more selection and there might be more, just can't find their menu. Looks like Neighbourhood Pub might be the only place to go. Not that that is a problem, just wondered about possible other places. My boss can be a little fussy about what he eats. :roll:

If you eat a the Neighbour Pub.. be sure to only eat something deep fried. That will kill all the filth. Just have a look at the bathroom to see how clean the place is. There are "hand oil" marks where people open the door that take YEARS to build up and clean off easy with some soap and water. The whole side of the door is black, it's gross.

If Targ doesn't fit into your timing Lowertown brewery is the place you want to go. Great food, staff, nice atmosphere and 8 great pins!

Okay, so let's review the items separately:

Food:
Lowertown is first and foremost a restaurant, and a damn good one at that. Be prepared to shell out decent coin for a very good meal.

Neighborhood Pub is a pub. They do wings, fries, burgers. Yeah, you need a bit of a cast iron stomach but I eat there all the time with no ill effects. The wings are where it's at.

Targ is Targ. Their subtitle is Pinball and Perogies. They do perogies well, but it's all they do. Lots of different kinds to choose from and their house made. It's a heavy meal but it's something different and very good.

The beer:
This is Ottawa. Everyone carries Bud Lite. Everyone carries local microbrews. There's no winner.

The pinball:
Lowertown has a half-dozen very recent DMD titles in good repair. They are not a pinball-primary destination, but if you're there to socialize and eat, they'll keep you busy.

Targ is split evenly between classic arcade games and a dozen-or-so relatively recent DMD titles with a couple of SS games thrown in for good measure. If you're into modern games such as Iron Man, Ghostbusters or Walking Dead, you'll have fun here.

The Neighborhood Pub is my haunt. They keep over twenty classic SS and EM games on deck at all times. If you're a fan of the SS generation, you'll enjoy titles like Star Trek, Flash Gordon, and Comet, as well as retro EM titles like Royal Flush.

Wherever you decide to go, enjoy your stay in Ottawa. Try to hit up all three.
