Rib eye steak recommended. Though there are TVs over the bar, you can sit far enough away not to be bothered.

The service was timely (no need to wait for anything), the food was cooked to our specific request (we had filet mignon). We would highly recommend it.

My wide and I were visiting Ottawa from Novo Scotia and really lucked in with this restaurant. The in-bone ribeye steak is the best I have ever had...and that includes Quebec and Toronto, Buenos Aires and Mexico, and New York and many cities in europe.
My wife, who is a bit snobbish when it come to food, had atlantic halibut with chimicurri sauce that she says was wonderful, 'out of this world'. And the service was first class. All together, an outstanding experience.

Un accueil très avenant. Ambiance lounge. Qualité inégale dans les saveurs. Un crab cake qui manque de piquant mais très bonne sauce. Le meilleur tartare de bœuf goût depuis très longtemps. Salade César correcte. Pétoncles et crevettes sautées qui manquent cruellement de saveurs. Excellent dessert. Bonne carte des vins mais plusieurs à des prix assez élevés. La qualité du service est irréprochable.

All of the staff were great but Trevor warrants a particular shout out. Attentive and helpful without overbearing. A great balance. Food was amazing. Calamari & shrimp appetizers. Lobster tail, filet, hamburger (yes, hamburger) and short rib entrees. Broccoli and mushroom sides. We doubled up on the broccoli and it was the first dish gone - yes, it was amazing. The short ribs get a special shout out (again). While we were filled after entrees we did a single order of coconut creme pie for the table with four forks - outstanding - a must do at Shore Club.

Unbelievable bare presentation, large white plate with a small 7 oz steak sitting on the plate all by its self. No presentation what so ever. Shocked this would be served! Very disappointed....

As always we had a great time. It has become one of our favourite places.

With the new COVID measures, we were asked to identify ourselves and show our vaccination proof. It was done in a very professional way.

Concerning the food, everything was great, as always. Highlights were the Salmon Tartare & the Burger + some interesting amuse-bouche. Also, of course, I must recognize the amazing service.

Steak came out cold and over cooked, could barely cut it. Seafood was good though, stick to the seafood if you come here.

We chose to dine here for our anniversary. When we arrived we were seated in the lounge- never asked if we were there to dine. The lounge was not what we were looking for, the space was dark and loud, near the front door, and the table wasn’t even large enough for dinner plates of any kind. We asked the hostess to move seats, which was met with hesitation, and then she insinuated that we didn’t know what we wanted; but again, we were never asked if we wanted the lounge or dining.

Our waiter was Chad and he was very knowledgeable of the menu, and took very good care of us. However, the food was not that great. I asked for a medium steak, and received medium rare. It also had very little flavor.

Overall, I would not consider returning to the Shore Club and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

First time but not the last time.
I have only but compliments for this restaurant.

The staff was kind and very helpful. Everyone helps around and ensures you’re at ease and enjoying your experience.

Major success for me was the Mac N’cheese. You might not think the Shore Club is the place to order some but as I saw it on the menu, I thought it must be great so I tried it... Pls, if you go, order it. It was most definitely the best I’ve had in my life (beats my grandma’s one) ;). My sincere congratulations to the person who cooked it.

We will be back, that’s for sure.
Best regards to the staff!

Service was good. I spent a total of 300 dollars. Bought a seafood tier. The shrimp tasted old. The lobster tails were dry. I needed to order a burger and fries on the side after the meal came just so the person I was with could at least eat something. So it could have been better. I guess it's good to know what to order in the future so I don't feel bitter the next time. I did not complain. We just weren't pleased. Great place just not what we happened to order that day. No hard feelings. It is what it is.

Good was excellent. It’s nice to order a steak and have it cooked exactly as you asked. Strip loin was superb. Mac and cheese was delicious and so were the fries. Only complaint is there isn’t much of a view next to the windows. Our view was of the car entrance to the hotel and a lovely garbage can right outside the window. Can’t see much of the canal.

Excellent Steak and Caesar salad.
Onion rings were a little heavy I should have had the fries and will next time.
My wife loves Oysters she said they were fresh and delicious.
We will go back it is a very good restaurant with excellent service.

Everything except the hostess was a great meal, and excellent table service. I booked this table three weeks ago. Arrive at the restaurant and the hostess takes us to a table in the bar thinking this is acceptable. Only after saying no was a table in the restaurant was made available. I don't understand the hostess' motive?

This dinner was a special occassion. After 29 years i've reunited with a university friend from out of town so i decided to take her out to a place that has been getting rave reviews from friends who've been here. The ambience was beautiful and the food was delicious. However, service was not up to par. At all. Mika was not friendly, was rude and very slow. However, her demeanor with the table behind us was completely different and she was happy, friendly and quick with the drinks. This was unfortunate because this kinda ruined the experience for my friend and myself.
