I Love Being A Tourist

My parents are visiting for a month.  So we thought it would be fun to stay downtown in a hotel.  It gives the boys a chance to play in the pool and a chance to become a tourist in our own town.
Over the next few weeks I will be providing reviews of any restaurants or fun family events that we attend. 
I have to tell you about the Mill St. Brew Pub. 
This place has it all and is a MUST stop if you are in Ottawa.
It's difficult to say what is the best part about this place, because its all great.
The location is historic and picturesque.
The staff are so friendly and accommodating.  Thanks to Jeff the bartender for making my favorite drink.
The food is fabulous.  Large portions.  Even the children menu items are huge.
Then theres the beer.  That's my dads department, and he says they have some winners.  Strong and flavourful, especially a pint of Palomar with hints of chipotle.
It's very family friendly and spacious enough for large crowds.
I can't say enough about this place.  I was super impressed by everything and unfortunately that doesn't happen often. 
Not that I am hard to please, but I am particular when it comes to a night out.
Stop by the next time you are in Ottawa. 
I think you'll love it too!
