Excellent food and service. Set up was perfect for social distancing. When making the reservations and/or upon arriving, we weren't informed that we had the table for 2 hours only. We were informed by our server 15 minutes prior to having to leave the table. Therefore, our end of meal coffee felt rushed.

My wife, we were supposed to be joined by our young daughter, had our Christmas Eve lunch at Shore. Craig and Chad went above and beyond to provide a custom service for us. We used to be regulars until we moved a few years back, and we were treated like we had never left. The steak. The sides. The wine. All wonderful! We wish the staff well during this lockdown and we look forward to seeing Shore Club again - and more often - soon!

The quality of the food was exceedingly scrumptious. The portion was a tad small, I ordered the shrimps and scallops, 3 shrimps and 3 scallops for $44.

A mixed bag. Some food items very good, others mediocre. I expected consistent high quality given the price point of menu items. Overall value only fair. Won't go back.

Waiter was great but service was very slow. Received my bill and just wanted to settle it and get home but didn’t see waiter for 15+ mins. Went and found someone else to bring me the machine to pay.

Crab cake appetizer not worth it. Shrimp & Scampi and stuffed trout both excellent and very filling. Asparagus very nice but enough for 4 - 6 people. Service was outstanding.

I felt like a cozy spot for some drinks and good conversation with a friend so I knew this would fit the bill. Consistently good food and drink and service. Would love to go back to a pre-Covid atmosphere but there is still ambience. Hopefully back to normal times again soon.

A wonderful restaurant, the food is excellent, the service was great, the ambience is relaxed and they are very careful as to apply social distancing rules. My only negative comment is that as we were celebrating a birthday and I had both mentioned it to our waiter and when reserving , I would have appreciated had they offered a dessert to the birthday girl, usually top restaurants do!

I went for my and my daughters birthday for happy hour and drinks and oysters. Was a great place to celebrate our day. The server was amazing! Super bubbly and happy. Even given the fact that due to COVID everything in Ottawa was being shut down at midnight that night. I will be going back as soon as we can again. I love the Shore Club!

Good distancing. Quiet. They allowed us to park outside the front doors: much appreciated. Presentation and service very good. Stuffed trout lacked taste. Coffee not hot. My wife's chicken dish and earl grey tea fared much better. Coconut cream pie was good. Overall a good night out.

Thank you for making last minute arrangements and get us a table on main floor.

And by luck Mika was our waitress and she was amazing. I would give her 7 stars but got limited at 5!!

Well done in managing safely the restrictions for Covid!

We had a great experience for our 31st anniversary!!

I really love this place and we go there a lot but this last time they didn’t make any effort to control the guests. There was a big family group that they split over 3 tables and they were just wandering around without masks. Of course, that was going to happen. They were coughing, yelling and sneezing towards the end (having fun - I get that). I noticed they were ordering $250 bottles of champagne so I guess that gave them a pass. I’m so disappointed. I won’t go back. My wife and I are 60 years old... we don’t have any co-morbidities but we are still in danger when restaurants put us at risk.
