Stopped by for lunch and left very unimpressed. The place is right in the middle of the Old City. It has a nice patio and it looks pretty good inside, too. Your average looking pub. I believe they had 3 house beers (not sure who brews them) - blonde, rousse and amber (or was it red?). There are a few of your regular micros and imports. I ended up ordering a pint of Guinness. Waiter spoke good English and was friendly, but it took him awhile to get the check. However, that was only because he had too many customers, so no blame on him (just poor organization of the place). Food was below average. I ordered sausages with sauerkraut and fries. They looked unappetizing and tasted about the same.

Given that the food was below average, and there was nothing special as far as beers are concerned, I am very unlikely to return to this place, and would not recommend it. I had a very uneasy feeling sitting in this place. Like the main goal is to serve as many tourists as possible.

Pub St. Patrick offers a nice deck to sit on and people watch right on Rue Saint-Jean when the weather is nice. That, I would say, is it's main draw. The food is basic stuff at the prices you'd expect for the location (Buffalo Chicken Wings $18, Nachos $16, Fish & Chips $18, Crab cake sandwich $1).

They offer 42 beers and 2 ciders in bottles, and 10 beers on tap and 1 cider. The bottled selection is pretty good offering some of the better Canadian craft brews, a few decent Belgians and a handful of English beers but the tap selection is very mainstream (Guinness, Smithwick's, Kilkenny, Sam Adams, Carlsberg, Moosehead, etc.)

I would certainly not list it as a beer destination, but depending on whom you're with it might be a good stop.

This is one of the Pubs in Quebec City that you might try and go to. Came here during winter carnival last year. I rather enjoyed the atmosphere of the place, we were seating downstairs area with brick walls and a cozy setting. My only complaint would be that the place is just too damn confusing. There's entrances and other areas that I didn't even know existed in this building until I got lost, it feels quite large because of all the niches. Although the bar area was quite small, seems more of restaurant than a place for drinking.

They had a few house beers, nothing that was memorable since I've certainly forgotten them by now. Food was decent but barely above average and the staff, while they could understand English, it took forever taking orders and getting the food the beer and the check. I know some of it has to do with the culture in Quebec City and taking a long time eating meals and conversing, but after a while, I would like to get out and see more of the city.

A decent bar in quebec city, this place sports 2 house beers, a golden ale and a stout...both are very good, with the stout being very reminiscent of mcauslans fine st. ambroise oatmeal stout. The other beers on tap were the typical quebec micros and british imports such as beamish, caffreys, guinness, etc...The service was fast, but the bartenders spoke almost no English (suprise) and the fill up on the 2nd and 3rd beers was rather slow.

A pretty good place.

*note that their are 2 locations of this pub in QC...*
