Corner Pub, The22 South Ottawa Street, Kitchener
Local pay what you get
Submitted Wednesday, May 16, 2012 - 8:52pm [Dine in]

The food here, what limited options you get, are sound. I don't know if they have an online menu, but check it before you go.

The place has a bit of a schizophrenic atmosphere, because it's called a "pub" but the owner considers it a "restaurant". Well, what is it? Can I swear here? Can I bring my kids here? Basically, you can't do either.

The owner may have her opinion but here's mine:

There's nothing high class about it so don't expect fine dining if you come here. It's located in one of the sketchiest parts of Kitchener so, if you're a hippy or social experimenter, then yeah, you can probably get some entertainment out of the company who happens to drift in. Maybe me, love to meet you!

Functionally, it really is a pub, as is advertised on the nameplate outside. "PUB" to me means a place to drink booze and meet people casually over a few drinks. That's exactly what this place is, and it's cheap. You can get food here that's better than "pub food" but certainly less than gourmet or restaurant food; and the prices are cheap. It's close to the Delta Hotel but that's it. Probability says that this place is mostly full of seniors and random unemployed people; management seems to be a bit hostile to the younger gentrification type. That being said, it's no reason for discouragement.

It is not gay friendly and unless you're a local you will probably feel unwelcome here.
