Going to Habs game, best nearby pub food?

Where would you go for decent pub food near the Bell Centre?

  1. McKibbins on Bishop has some pretty decent food. The burger is good, just don't get the bison burger. The fish and chips are decent.

    Otherwise, I would suggest avoiding the Irish Embassy. We went there once and we won't go back. The food was not good.

        Allow me to pile on with another vote for Brasserie Brunoise.

          Yeah, I've heard about that place. Do they have a beer selection to speak of?

      2. Food is decent and a selection of irish beer is available at Hurley's on Crescent between René-Lévesque and Ste-Catherine.

        1. Hurley's have a game-night special. Quick and good.
          Not to go against the flow, but I like the food at Irish Embassy. Not the best around, but it's bar food, and I prefer it to McKibbins. YMMV.
          And yeah, there's always Brunoise.
