Great selection of beers. The fish and chips were very soggy, the jerk chicken sandwich was dried out and came with ztaztiki sauce (Greek on Jamaican?). Lunch was $95 after tax and tip for three fish and chip specials, the jerk sandwich and three beers. It wasn't bad, the service was good, so I wouldn't say no to returning.

Waitresses are rude with attitude. They would double or triple bill you thinking you are drunk and don't care. The waitresses would take more than 15minutes to get you a drink. Then if a second server comes and asks you they will bring a single order and bill you twice. Horrible. This has been going on for a while. This... More

We were a group of five. They have a great selection of beers on draft. Something for everybody's taste. The food was awesome, especially the poutine. Service was friend and just fine. Everyone was happy with their food and drinks. What is not to like for a pub.

Uncooked potatoes in a chowder that arrived in a bowl, though I ordered it in a cup and disoriented waiters and waitresses made for rather poor pub experience. I decided not to go back.

Barley Mow Kanata is well run. "House Mother" Laurie runs a good ship. The daily lunch special for $10 can't be beat - I eat there often when I am in the office. Great servers, know their regulars by name and treat you well. A bit hokey I will admit, but for those of us in the Kanata high tech... More

Living in the area, this quaint little Pub style restaurant has had it shares of good and bad for sure....I have lived through these times with them trying to find a "good fit" to feed their regular patrons and general public. I must admit, I gave up for a good few years...food was cold, tasteless and reflected the person producing... More

We stay at the Brook Street hotel very often and its soooo nice to be able to go to a pub and not have to pay the unreasable prices, for food, at the hotel. Service is always friendly and efficient, with a few laughs to boot. Great choice of beer on tap! Hear the serve breakfast on the weekends as... More

I have been to a few Barley Mow's and this one is the best by far. Many choices on the menu and the food is very good. Sometimes during the rush the wait staff can seem a bit stressed, but overall super friendly team.

Good selection of beers, but could have had more Ontario micro brews on tap. I had a Beaus.....very good, To eat I had the house curry. For me it could have been a little more spicy, but for most I would think it would be fine. It was good and it was a nice presentation. Service was friendly but a... More
