Zeller Inn Bar • $
615 Columbus St, Ottawa

“Service is great, cordial and speedy, atmosphere is great as it's an old building and they even offer succinct cards of the history of the building. However if you came for the chairs, the chairs are horrible. The one I claimed wouldn't turn left. It would spin right but not left. I recommend this place to anyone who likes speedy drinks, a staff that interacts with you, and an atmosphere with a rich history. However if you came for the chairs like me, it may leave you dissapointed. Overall great place will come back for a different chair.“
