Have been to this place 6 times in the last year the food is excellent and plentiful, we have yet to try the dessert menu we are always to full. We had a slight problem one night but the staff was quick to solve the issue, quick service even when busy. Lots of free parking.

"Gotta Eat Here" recommended your restaurant & it lived up to all expectations. We totally enjoyed the chicken, ribs & the DS Signature burger. Meeting Cheryll & the owner, Dave made our meal experience. Thank you.

Called and asked if the place was wheelchair accessible and I was told that there was a ramp and a full access bathroom. I must say - I think it was the nicest largest power door operated accessible bathroom..I recommended they have a more handy soap dispenser and lower the paper towel dispenser and they thanked me for my opinion...

Most restaurant goers, like myself, have felt from one time or another those early afternoon "hunger pangs" going off in your belly. Well...a strong desire to devour a juicy, good old fashioned cheeseburger and a smooth golden frothy glass of cold beer to wash it all down, came over me last Sunday afternoon, while taking a leisurely drive in the...

Had another great meal last evening. Had a half rack of ribs and had to order a half pound of brisket to accompany the ribs. Never disappointed when leaving and always thinking about what to order on our next visit. They are always adding something new to the menu via their Facebook page but I always forget to get their...

Carlsbad Springs has slowly been gaining a reputation as a bastion of BBQ / smokehouse innovation. I have been dining in some of Ottawa areas best-kept secrets for many years now, and I must say D&S is quite an experience. And for those of you searching for a casual family culinary experience like no other, look no further than D&S... More
