Five of us went to Hotel Kenney, by boat, for lunch the beginning of July. Since we have never been, we thought it would be a great time to take advantage of the free lockage and beautiful weather. We arrived for a somewhat later lunch but enjoyed every minute of it. Four of us had the fish and chips while our daughter in law opted for the burger. No one was disappointed. There was quite a bit of food and the price was very reasonable. I had lunch the day before at a restaurant in Ivy Lea that could not compare. Thanks for a great lunch, Hotel Kenney!

We were traveling by houseboat on the Rideau Canal for the forth time, having stopped here once before for lunch 10 years ago. The Kenney is an old lodge right on the water at the bottom of Jones Falls Locks. The dinning room overlooks the river and the first lock. We stopped in for lunch and were amazed at the quality of the food, at reasonable price. It was so good we decided to go back for dinner. They had three main meals at lunch and dinner (different for each meal), soup of the day/meal, salads and home made deserts for both meals. There were also sandwiches and wraps available for lunch. Patrons we met were either other boaters or people staying at the hotel/cabins, with meals included. One couple had been coming since the early 1970s from Pennsylvania every year.
We really love the location with a large lock complex to explore and great views. The food was excellent and the service relaxed and very helpful.
If you're in the area, don't miss it!!!

The building and views are outstanding and it is worth a visit to just see the place. The service was friendly even though it was a bit busy on a Friday night. The menu is limited but everything we had was very good. They are not always open so recommend calling to verify before going.

Went to the hotel for tea for two, to ice cream shop the next weekend for ice cream for the family. Always friendly service, and prices are reasonable.

Visited the hotel restaurant for dinner. Food was very tasty, good portions and very reasonably priced. Limited menu; but everything that came out of the kitchen looked like it was prepared and served with pride. Service was great as well.

The wine list was good; although not everything was available. You may be able to bring your own.

The view is onto the water at the locks at Jones Falls, part of the Rideau system.

This is another restaurant that I will definitely try again.
