Good food, extremely poor service especially being only table!

First off, one of our favourite restaurants, especially the burgers. Used to friendly greeting as soon as you walk in the door ...not the case this time. Ordered zucchini app and burgers for four. Appetizer was forgotten, disappointed but was ok with that. I figured the service would improve to... read more

First off, one of our favourite restaurants, especially the burgers. Used to friendly greeting as soon as you walk in the door ...not the case this time. Ordered zucchini app and burgers for four. Appetizer was forgotten, disappointed but was ok with that. I figured the service would improve to make up for the forgotten app... Got worse instead! Considering... More

When we moved to a neighbourhood 13km from Carleton Place, it took some time to find restaurants that we liked. Moving to the country meant that we no longer wanted to "go into the city (of Ottawa)" for a meal. We found Ballybiblin's and now it is our favourite spot. Even our adult kids who visit us take their friends... More

Thank you to the very pleasant and accommodating staff at Ballygiblin's for welcoming a very cold, damp and hungry dragon boat team last evening. I admit to making the reservation for 20-25 persons only a few days before and thankfully the restaurant was able to accommodate us. I had to make adjustments to our numbers more than once and the...

My wife brought me here for my birthday and their use of local ingredients was excellent. Great food for a fair price. Highly recommend the burgers and fresh cut fries.

Again normal pub fare, a little expensive for the portion you get. Salads were small, not enough for a meal.

Great place to eat, nice patio and friendly staff! They use lots of fresh and local ingredients, and are a big support to the community.

Along with my wife and daughter , we ate here while in town for the MIST soccer tourney Meal was good and there was plenty of food. Value for the price was excellent. Service was very good Only complaint would be set up - perhaps some booths to prevent the loudness if neighbouring tables Overall- a strong recommendation !

Not a bad little restaurant for a small town. I was expecting a pub type atmosphere, (which it was) but the food was not pub-fare. Selections rivaling a much more upscale place and flavour to match. Great portions and fabulous small-town friendly service. We will definitely be back!

Recommended by our B&B operator - we wound our way through this picturesque little town to find this incredible restaurant! A much bigger menu than anticipated, local food, diversity, excellent quality, good wine list - it was the perfect ending to a travel day. And the waiter was awesome!
