Nice Entertainment

This is a great place to take your family to. They have some really good entertainment and you are sure to have a fun evening with your family. The food and service are excellent.

This is my usual go-to pub when I am in the area with business colleagues and need a quick lunch. I am never disappointed. Service is always fast, friendly and attentive, even if the place is busy which it usually is at the 12:00 to 1:00pm lunch rush. My business buddy and I got seated as soon as we walked in, and were handed menus. This location has trimmed down the menu and got rid of the... more

Arrived for live 88.5 patio crashers, got a table without seeing the staff figuring they would notice another table filled up.

Surprised by the negative tone of the previous reviews I've read here.

We go for breakfast about once or twice a month here on weekends and we have always had good service. Breakfast's are good sized portions at a fair price. Servers were always prompt and attentive and accommodate any special requests with a smile.

Within walking distance for us so it's a nice local place for a lazy Sunday... more

Uncooked potatoes in a chowder that arrived in a bowl, though I ordered it in a cup and disoriented waiters and waitresses made for rather poor pub experience. I decided not to go back.

Barley Mow Kanata is well run. "House Mother" Laurie runs a good ship. The daily lunch special for $10 can't be beat - I eat there often when I am in the office. Great servers, know their regulars by name and treat you well. A bit hokey I will admit, but for those of us in the Kanata high tech... more

Living in the area, this quaint little Pub style restaurant has had it shares of good and bad for sure....I have lived through these times with them trying to find a "good fit" to feed their regular patrons and general public.

Good Place for Pub Food
November 23, 2013

I have been going to the Barley Mow Kanata for probably 16 years now. Yes it has some slow days and it's not always packed but the staff has always been nice when I was there. I usually order the wraps or wings... I have never had a problem with any of the meals. A lot of people go there after work so its usually busy then and on St. Patty's day. I would recommend this place to anyone who... more

The worst

This place has a decent patio but that is pretty much all that it has going for it. The service was poor at best but honestly it was the food that killed it for me. $15 for a plate of nachos, plus $5 for chicken, plus $3 for a small side of guacamole. $23 total for the plate and it was a small portion (actually looked like someone had eaten off the top when we got it) very minimal toppings... more

Convenient for work lunches
August 15, 2013

I have been to a few Barley Mow's and this one is the best by far.
Many choices on the menu and the food is very good. Sometimes during the rush the wait staff can seem a bit stressed, but overall super friendly team.

Beer is OK - no better or worse than anywhere else. The service is sporadic, inattentive and slow. We had two servers tonight all night and neither knew what the other was doing. And despite there being the two the service was still poor. But it was the food that really rates the one star - it was awful. I had bangers and mash and this was as far from British bangers and mash that you'd find.... more

C@!p service!! Our waitresses was SO rude! She kept making mistakes and then almost 'accusing' us of screwing her up. The owners should send their staff to customer service school and have them come back with manners. It also took FOREVER to get service and we had to ASK for a menue. You think coming in at supper time the waitress would automatically bring one. BLAH!

I just want to say that I agree with Madonna "Can't get Service" I have been there several times and had the very same experience. The women that work there are snotty and rude to women, unless they know them I imgaine. They want only men so they are the center of attention and get larger tips. This has been this way for YEARS and I think that it should change too. I stopped going there awhile... more

What happened?
September 29, 2012

I've always enjoyed the food at Barley Mow on March Road and downtown however I had not been in about a year. When I saw that a new Mow had opened in Stittsville, I decided to give it a try. What happened? Food was tasteless, not fresh and in some cases just grose. Did they change their menu, food suppliers? My guests and I ordered many things from their menu including the always good and... more

I've eaten at this restaurant a few times when traveling on business. It's decent and reliable--a good value.
This time I had the soup of the day, a cream of roasted red pepper soup, which was nice, and a braised lamb shank, which was excellent.
My co-worker had a burger with Swiss cheese and mushrooms that looked appetizing.

Stittsville Barley Mow: I recently went there on a Thursday night (June 14th to be exact), I brought 4 friends with me. I wasn't expecting much for 1cent wings... However I didn't expect it to be utterly disgusting. First off, here's their deal, you must purchase a bottle of beer or a draft beer in order to get the wings. I thought, ok, no worries. When the first order came, I thought it was a... more

A friendly pub with average food
January 04, 2012

Go for the fairly good selection of beer but not so great menu. I appreciate that they've pared it down recently -- a good move -- next step is to raise the quality. Burgers are good, nachos are good, but most mains suffer from either lack of flavor or, in the case of the pub curry, nothing but heat.

Good range of drinks, food not too bad for this type of pub/restaurant and thankfully not all "meat and fries" type of fare. Service good, seating good but bar area way to crammed. Can hardy get into it even when its empty with what is a small lumber yard of tables and chairs!
