Canal Bistro - Mediterranean Grille
George says. "It's been our dream to open our own place, to be creative with cuisine, and to have a family business that our sons can be a part of."
The Canal Bistro is that dream. "It's like you've come to one of our parties -- we've basically just moved our kitchen from home to here," they say. "We put the grill in the dining room because we want people to know that we are using top quality ingredients, and that freshness is our goal, so everything is done right in front of you."
So eat up, relax, be happy. You're eating in a dream come true!
Garlic Feta Fries
french fries mixed in our homemade garlic sauce and feta cheese
penne and red peppers tossed with creamy bechamel sauce
seasoned with fresh thyme, rosemary and garlic, then baked to perfection, served with roasted red potatoes, mushrooms and rice
Our server was awesome as well as the owner who moved us into the sunshine on Sunday afternoon!
Love their Greek Food. Very nice selection of entrees. I think they serve the best calamari in town. Save some room for dessert and Greek Coffee.
Food was great
Lamb kabobs very tender
Food and atmosphere were very good. Only complaint was being very rushed. Entrees arrived less than five minutes after appetizers.
Great food! Great service! Lovely atmosphere! We loved the food and it was even still great the next day!
Wonderful experience. We cannot wait to go back and try something else. The sizzling olives were great and I lived my feta grilled cheese with feta garlic fries! It’s nice that they have their own parking lot. I do wish they had shades on the windows because as the sun was setting it was blinding us but overall wonderful experience.
Drinks and appetizers were very good. My chicken kabob was a little over cooked, but not to the point that I wouldn’t eat it. Overall it was a very nice meal. We will return.
Great experience! Haven’t been there for a while but will definitely come back!
We had a wonderful New Year’s eve dinner, the canal bistro never disappoints always has amazing food and service even on the busiest of days and holidays. We often choose this restaurant for holidays because they never disappoint!
This is one of our favorite spots, but we hadn't been in a while until our recent double date there. They have made parking easier than in the past, and we had made a reservation, so dinner was completely hassle-free. Food is always good, and the wine suggestion was excellent. Portions are always big enough for a great lunch the day after, so my lamb kabob was enjoyed twice.
Great atmosphere. big portions. Good service.
My husband is Lebanese and we LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!!!! Food and ambiance as well as great staff keep us coming back. We live 2 hours west in Illinois and still make the trip a few times a year. Great place and highly recommend it!!!
Always great food. Good drinks and timely service. The servers were friendly, efficient, and helpful.
Our family gathered to celebrate the holiday season and were very pleased with the quality and quantity of selections offered. Very well priced and very, very clean. Will return soon.
Wonderful service and experience. We will definitely return.
Lovely meal, great service and extremely friendly. The food was wonderful! Very fresh and quick to be served. I highly recomne
Delicious food, large portions, great service!
The food is simply not as good as it used to be - the eggplants were burned and the meat tough
Amazing hidden gem! Reservations are definitely needed as the word is out about this place. Everything was exceptional and I can not wait to return! Tried the baba ganoush, saganaki and gyro platter and all were truly abundant and delicious.
This is a family favorite. Food is always fresh and delicious. A good variety of vegetarian, GF and meat options. The service is excellent as well.
Served s a great meal. Staff was very helpful with getting my elderly father in and out of the restaurant.
Love that place! Excellent food and the staff is always responsive and friendly.
Canal Bistro is just a cozy environment restaurant. One of our favorites. Menu has a wide range of vegetarian as well as non vegetarian dishes. Great goat cheese bruschetta, amazing pita bread. They have a good amount of cocktail/special drink choices. If it’s summer time get outside seating and enjoy the canal and the commotion.
Lovely patio setting. Attentive and solid service. Delicious food. My cocktail was a little weak and heavily garnished. The food presentation could use some work. Overall lovely experience.
Wanted to make a nice impression on lady I had recently met. Food was great and to be surpassed by the friendly and attentative staff.
Great food and services as always. One of our favorites!
Had a reservation, got right in. Service was fast and food was tasty.
Excellent food and service. Very authentic. Great alfresco dining. Easy parking
Out of town family. Made for a nice gathering spot for brunch on a Sunday
Food was undercooked and got sick from it
Always excellent food & service. Especially nice sitting outside along the canal.
Friendly staff, great salads and it was a beautiful day to sit out on their shaded patio!
Very good food and have lunch outside was very nice.
Great evening on the patio. Our server was very good, made some suggestions on wine, which we really enjoyed and as always the food was top notch!
We had dinner here recently and everything was really good: the food quality, the service and even the weather! So glad we revisited an old favorite and that it is still wonderful!
Great location. Food is very tasty. The service is attentive. My mother loved the Mango Juice. I have gone before and will go again.
We went there for a dunner with My daughter who is attend Butler College. There is a peaceful to the restaurant, It was not busy on Saturday night at 5:00 pm, but it was getting a lot more busy when we were done eating... The food was absolutely delicious and the service was very friendly and helpful. It was one of those dinners that we will remember and I will try to eat there every time I go and visit my daughter in college. Lamb Chops! Flaming cheese!!!!!!!! and Gyro Platter were amazing!
Emily was outstanding!!!! Will be back very soon!!!
Food was terrific! Very friendly, fun service. Great lunch! Enjoyed being able to hear each other when conversing - seems a rare thing at many restaurants today!
Great food! Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Also, they have parking and on Saturday night, they had someone outside directing people to parking spaces and stopping traffic so people could cross the street.
