Sitting in a wonderful spot on the Rideau river, eating the most delious fish and chips, watching boats go buy. With very quick pleasant staff. It was a very enjoyable experience .

Good service, good food, great view, this place is well worth a visit. We sat on the deck watching the river go by enjoying our food and wine. Three different entrees and all were delicious. Boats came and docked and people went in for ice cream which is apparently very good. The trees and the breeze made a hot day... More

We are never disappointed and the food, service, etc. are all excellent. I hope today was not our last late lunch there (we go late now as it has become very popular and we have been regulars for years!). Thank you to the staff and owner - and Vicky in whose table area we always hope for, don't always get,... More

We had head about this place but never think of going since it's not common to venture into Manotick for dinner as opposed to downtown Ottawa. But on a quiet Tuesday evening it was a nice day to soak up some sun and were in the mood to try something new. The drive was surprisingly fast (coming from Barrhaven), it's... More

Kelly's Landing is on the Rideau River just south of Manotick. Not your usual go-to place but its obviously known by the locals and the boats that stop by for fuel. The restaurant is attached to a convenience store and is right on the water. The view is worth the price. A good selection of beer and a modest but... More

Myself and 4 colleagues decided to go for a well deserved drink after work tonight at Kelly's Landing. Our place of employment does not have air conditioning and so it has been a hot week at work. We also wanted to toast to being back to work from our holidays. We arrived at 4:15pm and the 5 of us sat... More

The food was good, the view was great and the waitress was awesome. The only negative comment I have is: Some guy came and took my car keys to move my car. He did not tell me who is was, he just said I was parked in a no parking spot, which I was not. The spot was for customers... More

This was our first time at Kelly's Landing. What a great little spot! Service was fast and friendly, and we sat at a table right next to the water. We had to wait 10 minutes for the spot because the place was packed for dinner. I ordered the fish & chips and they were the best I've ever had...golden brown... More

Stopped for supper with friends. It was a wonderful evening to be on the outdoor patio looking over the water. The setting sun was a little bothersome when it came to seeing others, but nice. The staff were friendly and efficient. There is a good variety of menu items and the food was well prepared and flavourful. Portions were a... More

My husband and I have gone twice. The first time we pulled up on the boat. Very cool right? Well, we waited an hour for sandwich and salad. The staff never explained the delay. A lot of time, good service will make up for long wait but not this time. We weren't going to go back but if to go... More
