Friendly service, great value, delicious food!

Great location on the main drag in Carleton Place. Friendly service, great value, delicious food! The menu is large and has a bit of something for everyone. Fantastic vegetarian options (the curry is amazing!).

Prices are very reasonable, food is good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The pub part of it is a bit dark, but I guess that is what they were going for.

Four of us met at Ballygiblin's Restaurant and Pub on March 27. There seemed to be a communications issue between the wait staff and the kitchen. Our starter was very late in arriving and we had to remind our waitress that our salads had not arrived after our main courses had been served. The food was OK & the price... 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.
