The Clocktower is another great place, with several Ottawa locations.
The Rochester is an ultra-casual local. The bartender doubled as chef so only poutine and wings were available when we were there. In addition, he wasn't shy about his opinions. He didn't care much for St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout, likening it to diesel fuel. He managed to look after diners and drinkers alike and he was a very nice young fellow to boot.
