Lovely place to meet with friends. Casual but classy too. Local draught on tap which is a great way to promote the area breweries.

Loved everything about this restaurant. Delicious food, wonderful staff, beautiful inside. We were a party of 6, all first timers, all loved it and would definitely go back and soon. I'm seriously thinking of reserving a table for Valentine's Day to surprise my husband.

Popped in for a few drinks, ended up sitting at the bar socialising with locals. Friendly vibe & fantastic service. Got a little peckish after a couple of shants, so ordered the charcuterie and cheese board. WOW! what a selection! Cheeses, cold meats and condiments that fused it together beautifully. Didn't go into the restaurant, but would definately book to... More

This really restaurant came highly recommended to us by family. We were a group of ten getting together for a special occasion. Because of our amazing server, we had an enjoyable time, but seven of us did not enjoy our food. The three dishes that got good reviews in our group were the steak, the steak sandwhich, and the ribs.... More

My wife and I had lunch there this past week and loved the place. We like the way they have used antique horsey/farm mementos and all the pictures of dogs (we're dog lovers). The menu is really diverse and sophisticated -- lots to chose from.and everything sounds absolutely delicious. The daily soup (cream of roasted butternut squash, I think it... More

Visit this restaurant every time I am near the area, The new renovation has been thoughtfully done to blend in nicely with the Main street in the Village, The new side is country chic meets ski chalet and is quite impressive with high ceilings. The original side is very comfortable, busy and the hub of town. The food here is... More

I'm from out of town and whenever I go to Manotick to visit friends I always make a point of stopping at the Black Dog for lunch or dinner. I love the menu. They think outside the box when it come to different ways of making the average lunch or dinner. I've sat at the bar and in the dining... More
