A Definite Go To

We were here last week, a great go-to for the East rural/Ottawa area, they prove that everything smoked tastes sooo good! Excellent choice of local beers on tap. We both had the D&S Burger that we would recommend & had excellent flavor/seasoning. Only disappointment was that their patio was closed... read more

Ordered ribs from this place.. Worst ribs I have ever eaten. What's wrong is they were dry, old, no taste. Should not re-use stale ribs to serve clients..

O my God. Great BBQ. We tried it all and could not conclude what was best...bisque, pulled pork or chicken. Servings were large. Service was very polite and friendly. Pecan pie was very original with a chocolaty flavour. The smoked chocolate cheese cake was very interesting. Worth the drive for some family face time.

Leisurely Sunday afternoon bike ride stopping at D&S for a drink and dinner. I had the St. Louis pork ribs and Mac&cheese balls, both were great!! My wife had the Daves platter which she enjoyed. Service was friendly and attentive. We've been there several times in the past, never been disappointed.

We were there on a Saturday at 4:30, we had made reservations for 8ppl. We all ordered different items on the menu, but we did agree that the pork ribs had more bones than meat, it appears you can only order the beef ribs when it comes in a platter. I ordered the pulled pork and found it to taste... More

If there was a scorecard for restaurants, D&S would have failed on all counts. So disappointed. Having been three times before - ones with a group of 8, and two other times with one other person - it had been beyond fabulous. The Dave's meat platter was superb, all three times. But the fourth was no charm. Granted, it was... More

Four of us saved our appetites on Saturday night (March 7) and went to dine at D&S (three of us had been there before and loved it). I normally don't complain but this experience was beyond the pale... It started off ok with some drinks that were delivered quickly (and we ordered one app to try). Fast forward to at... More

Went there last night with some friends and the service and food was great as always. The onion rings are AWESOME!!!!! The meat is cooked to perfection. If you love BBQ you have to eat here. Doesn't matter if you are here with family, friends, kids or date night you will love the food.

16 of us had a great night out. Only one of us didn't like the spice but I thought the ribs, onion rings and smoked stack salad were delicious. Pass on the pulled pork slider and wings. But I now have my favorites for next time!
