My first time here was amazing! I have the say the burgers we had this evening were tasty! Great bun, patty was homemade, nice sauce. My colleague/friend ordered a combo which included fries and a pop. I got just the burger b/c we decided to share the fries as the fries can really feed 2 ppl. Service was ... unusual.... More

I took my kids to this place for a treat. But it took so long to get the food- that the smiles died on our faces. When I went to ask when our order would be ready (after 15 minutes) I was told that this wasn't McDonald's- the burgers were made from scratch. When I returned after 7 minutes- still... More

Shoulda read the reviews before I hit the beach, I think. All I knew was that there was a canteen on the beach. So . . . 3 generous stars -- and I mean I'm being generous to give them 3. Wanted a coupla veggie burgers . . . they were out . . . at 5:00 on a Saturday!... More

We paid $35 for two adults and a child and shared fries. The pop was from the bottom of a two litre bottle and was completely flat. The orange juice was from Walmart. The burgers were certainly not the best in ottawa by any means (Hintonburger and Five Guys are way better!) and the fries were awful. Also, the service... More

Obviously a great location right on the water at Ottawa's biggest beach. However, they have very little selection. The beer was expensive and in a tiny cup. The food was good, but it wasn't what I expected. I order a chicken burger, and it was just two deep fried chicken pieces in between a huge bun. A little disappointed but... More

I'd eaten here before when visiting Brittania Beach...it's convenient and has a monopoly on the food market here. I was stunned at the prices on this last visit. I brought twenty dollars,,thinking that would be plenty. I ordered a cheeseburger, fries and a bottle of water. I got fifty cents change! That's ridiculous! My son in law was smart and... More

I really was hoping this place lived up to the hype...unfortunately it did not. Based on my meal today, I had a very average bacon cheeseburger. I had a combo with a plain fry and a bottle of coke. $19.80 with tax. I understand that he may have a high rent to pay based on the location which was quite... More

We ordered 2 kids meals, which the menu said was a 3oz burger and fries, and the order came to a total of $13 with tax. After waiting for 20 minutes, I walked up to the counter to ask how much longer and it was sitting under the lamp. When I asked how long it had been sitting there, the... More

So, I have been twice this year, and all I can say is, be prepared to wait. By wait, I mean 15-20 minutes just to order, and half an hour or longer to get your food. Don't get me wrong, the food is great, but the popularity is growing, and not the staff to accommodate. I have not seen that... More

We'd heard about the Baja Burger Shack a couple of years ago and that it had received the title of "Best Burger in Ottawa", but the day we went looking for it we were unsuccessful. This past week we decided to go search it again and this time met with success. Right on Britannia Beach with a fantastic view to... More
