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

Best BBQ I've had outside of the deep south USA. My wife and I ordered a combo/meat platter to share and it was phenomenal. More than enough food, tender and tasty, great value. Very worthwhile.

We've had a lot of bbq and D & S is definitely one of the best ones we have ever tried. We ordered the Dave meat platter which had brisket, pulled pork, beef and pork ribs plus 2 sides. The brisket was very tender and moist and the pulled pork was very delicious; not too vinagry or too saucy as... More

We heard nothing but great comments about this place so last Friday we decided to try it. The restaurant is very clean and well maintained. The service (well at least our server) was very laid back. Other servers appeared to be a bit more attentive (but this was not detrimental) The portions are huge. I had the half rack and... 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
