The kitchen at Darcy's Pub offers a varied selection of freshly made pub food with West Coast flair.
Darcy's is in a great location at the foot of Bastion Square at Wharf St. with a view over the Inner Harbour. I tried lunches there a couple of times in the cooler months and the food was the normal pub fare but I found the place freezing - and this from a guy who likes it cooler. It is hard to enjoy your meal when you are shivering, but maybe that's just a lunch time phenomena.
I always found the service quite adequate and enjoyed the regular range of pub foods reasonably priced. They have an outdoor patio area that is very sunny (and likely warm) in summer and I am told it is a popular place with the young crown in the evening.
I like this place. It's at the centre of all things touristy, if you're a tourist, and has a good selection of beer and a decent menu. The food is good. In terms of the ambience, I like the wooden decor and that the interior design is in circles and squares. My only nit is the price. Bit expensive at over $7 for a 'sleeve' vs. a pint.
This is a pub. Plain and simple. The food is good and the pub is clearly a great place for a night on the town or to watch a game. Theirs lots of competition in the area and this is one of the few real neighborhood feeling pubs downtown. Worth checking out.
