I have been trying to find out if there is a favorite place in Ottawa to watch CFL games. Does Big Easy's have a good spot to watch a game? I went to Local Heroes one night, and they couldn't even turn on the sound, they said it would interrupt other people watching some other sport! Where is everyone going to watch CFL in Ottawa?
Big Easy's is definitely NOT a sports bar-type of restaurant, although there are a couple of TVs over the bar that are usually tuned in to sports channels. Thank Val for keeping them tuned to football . The last time we were there one was tuned to a CFL game and the other was tuned to an NCAA game.
Big Easy's is more of an upscale-casual dining restaurant. If you click on the link you can get a look at the menu.
Sports-bar wise, I always liked Local Heroes (owned by yet another former Ottawa Rough Rider - Mark Kosmos). They are very accommodating with volume and switching channels (within reason of course).
Has anyone ever tried Johhny Canuck's out in Orleans?
