I was toggling between the "Average" and "Very Good" rating for this restaurant simply because all hubby and I ordered yesterday was drinks and a plate of nachos so it's pretty hard to give a whole hearted menu review based on that. :) However, the Chicken Nachos and the drinks were very good and the Ambiance was great, so I'll...

Meal was great when we eventually got it, took almost an hour from the time we ordered. Furniture needs some tlc, as the table we had shook badly and could spin.

Such a great courtyard on the river. Great view, every appetizer I have had is amazing, they make a wonderful lime margarita. Whenever we go everybody has a good time.

Best outside dinning in all of Carleton Place, as it's right along the banks of the Mississippi River near the dam. Beautiful atmosphere, and the food is really good. I was hesitant to try it again, as we went when the restaurant was called "Morphy's Pub" and the food was awful. The new owners are doing a great job, if... More

They have about 13-15 taps of quite a good selection of beers and micro-brews. Their flight is 4 good size shots - probably 1/4 pint each, if you want to sample the differences. We were both very pleased with our meal as well, and one of us is a vegetarian. The staff are very friendly. I have also been there... More

Sits directly on the water. Nice to sit in the summer. The food is actually really good but the restaurant needs some work and a good cleaning. Tables are old and there are cob webs all over the place.

We cycled out from Stittsville to have lunch in Carleton Place. As we cycled across the bridge, we saw this charming little restaurant and stopped in to check out the menu. I'm really glad that we did - it was one of the best meals I have had in a while. I had a chicken club wrap with fries and... More

We enjoyed our food, and the view of the water, and the ample beer selection, but we found that the service was a little too casual. At times we were left stranded for an unreasonable period of time with no server in sight. This is frustrating as a customer, but it is also poor business for the server and the... More

Great view from outdoor patio overlooking Mississippi River... food fare is nothing special for the price... best suited for drinks on a patio on a lazy afternoon.

Last Friday every month they have comedy night (no cover)….. Be sure to reserve ahead because they were completely booked when we went. On the website, they had "all you can eat fish & chips" listed as the daily special, but when we got there, the special was $10 ribs, which is good also, but they were sold out.😒 We... More
