As a family we always celebrate birthdays out together. Our son picked D&S. Our first time and definitely met our needs. Spacious restaurant, good and pleasant service but most of all the food. Lots of it and was served hot and in a timely manner. Everyone left there full.

We found D&S on the list of restaurants from the show You Gotta Eat Here, and oh my were they right! Fingerlicking BBQ everything! My only regret was not have room left for dessert.

Excellent down-home comfort and food! A short jaunt from Ottawa, but if you like smoked and BBQ'd meat...you HAVE to eat here! The pulled pork is succulent! The brisket fantastic! We ordered and shared the platter of every meat they have...what a meal! Make sure to bring your appetite...portions are big!

Coming home from a small day trip we drove by D&S. I had mentioned that they had a brisket to die for(from past experience). One of the ladies always wanted to go to a smoke house to eat, so we turned around and went for dinner. We were sat quickly and politely asked if we would like any drinks. We... More

This restaurant is off the beaten path but well worth the trip. They have a great menu of southern style BBQ with smoked chicken, brisket and ribs. The portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. They feature microbreweries beers on tap and have a good variety to suit most palates. The staff is friendly.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We were seated and served quickly. My wife and I ordered the brisket on a bun with onion rings substituted for the fries on one of the plates. The fries weren't great; but the onion rings were excellent - served with a spicy dip on the side. The brisket was delicious, tender... More

Hidden gem. A little pricey but very good food. They could work on the atmosphere more. I would like to see a more smoke house feel. But ribs were done well. Good portion and friendly helpful staff. I look forward to returning on my motorcycle in the summer and trying the patio. Definitely worth the drive.
