Tucker’s Marketplace - Ottawa
Great food and nice variety. Will be back again for weekend brunch
Food was okay
But we had the WORST server.
She didnt even pick up our plates nor did she asked how the food/beers were
We are never disappointed with the food. The ambiance needs to be improved
Always a good experience here! Great food, reasonable price, and excellent service.
Maybe offer a fee more dairy free products. My son cant have dairy and I was able to request dairy free scrambled eggs which was great but other than that and fruit we were limited in options for him.
The food and service at Tucker’s was fantastic. Everything was delicious and our waiter was attentive and very nice. The only reason the rating is not higher is that it was so loud in the restaurant, my husband and I could barely hear each other talk. This isn’t the fault of the establishment, though. I think it is just a place that big groups frequent, therefore making it loud.
Amazing ! We love this buffet. Amazing selection and deliscious food and price is right !
We got serve by Vince, on his third day of training on Saturday January 11th. He was a natural. He did awesome! He was welcoming, very polite and often came to check on us and ask if we needed anything. Thanks so much to him and the staff for another great dining experience. Caroline
We were seated promptly! The food was great! Love to have so much range of choice as my daughter and I have several dietary issues!
Our experience was lovely! Great atmosphere! We do go right when the doors open with a reservation just so it’s not as busy & usually a nicer quieter enjoyable time. Food is always amazing!
Varied buffet at a reasonable price makes this a great lunch or dinner place. Loved the salad bar and the cheesecake is the best way to end the meal.
I always enjoy my visits to Tucker's. If I could make a suggestion about the hot food stations, it would be to watch the placement of the seafood dishes. Those of us with allergies are limited at the hot food stations because people mix up the spoons. I have a very uneasy feeling when I ask staff if there are certain ingredients in certain a dish and they come back from the kitchen with the response, "I don't know. It may be best for me to avoid the dish". Our party of four had a wonderful time. I was the only one with allergies. The other members of our party had a variety of items from the buffet and I heard no complaints.
This was our first time at Tucker's in Ottawa, and only our second time dining at a Tucker's. There is a wide variety of food to choose from, and we found this restaurant had a better salad bar than the other one (in Toronto), which, in addition, was better organized and presented in a more aesthetic way.
Most of the food was very good,. The orange zest chicken was tasty, and we especially liked the teriyaki basa fish. We both found, however, that the tortellini (I think it was 4-cheese with a pesto sauce) was not only tasteless, but also quite paste-y.
As for the desserts, the chocolate mousse wasn't very chocolatey and was too pale in colour. The ice cream was of a good quality, and there was a good variety of flavours. It would have been nice to see some small cookies on the dessert table.
Highly recommended. Delicious good for everyone’s taste!
All fresh and good choice
Always my go to place
It is worth the visit. It is a fun place to visit but I found the food bland and flavourless. I understand why but it wasn't truly enjoyable. They need a better desert selection. I found it to be lacking. The server was friendly and efficient until the end of our meal when she left us with a table of dirty glasses.
Everytime it is always an Outstanding Meal. Great Salad Bar!
Love this place! Staff are amazing, wonderful, wide range of food.
An absolutely amazing place, the food is always great, the staff are kind and hardworking and the chairs are comfortable.
We are never disappointed. One of our favourites is the Mushroom Soup.
Le services très bon la nourriture ok mais pas plus beaucoup des items dans buffets chaud que je mange pas pour sa que je donne 4/5 mais je retournerai avec des amis Merci
Really liked the place. Nice ambiance, really good food and the service was fantastic.

It was my wife’s birthday and we went for brunch .
The minute we entered the restaurant to when we left was a great experience .
Our server Amy greeted us with a smile , you could tell she was a good person being helpful throughout our brunch filling up our coffees , water , cleaning our table non stop . Great personality .
The food was wonderful and we will be coming back
On top of this free meal for my wife on her birthday
Thanks everyone .
We were disappointed. Hadn't been there in a year or so and unfortunately the main buffet items were Meh! Kuddos to the salad bar....
My son and I went to Tucker's Marketplace Restaurant to celebrate my 67th birthday, we had another GREAT meal and as usual we were not told to hurry, I have an artificial hip and I do not move very fast, but I slowly made my way around the Large table that the many selections of great food are on. I ate so much that I could hardly move. I strongly encourage each person who reads this review, to go to Tucker's and have the same type of Great service and Food at a price that you will be very happy to pay.
Great selection, great tasting food. Free on your birthday! Highly recommend.
The food was hit or miss for me, and the calamari was missing.
Lunch was pretty simple, nothing to write home about. You get what you pay for!
We've been going to Tuckers Marketplace since it was called Mother Tuckers. You can always expect a delicious meal. There's a nice variety of foods for everyone's taste. My favourites are the roast beef, which you can cut with a fork & the roast pork. The pasta dishes that they cook while you watch are also very good. You can also have fish, mussels, tacos, etc. etc. and there's a great salad bar. And don't forget the desserts that they serve. I recommend the bread pudding. The price is also reasonable & if you go on your birthday, its free. I would have to say that Tuckers Marketplace is my favourite restaurant.
A good eating destination for groups of friends and families. There are many choices and the salad bar is extensive; it can be a meal unto itself. Children in particular will enjoy the deserts!
Although the noise level can be distracting at times, the layout of the tables create an ambiance that is acceptable. If possible ask for a booth by the window.
I liked the restaurant because is very open, spacious, well decorated and calm. The food is always fresh and delicious. We coming back sort of regularly ( twice a year) at least because we like the friendly staff and The Always good and fresh food. My favourites are: the Chili, the Salads and the crisp apple desserts. Thank you for the great environment where One can spend a good time with Family and Friends- eating and talking at the same time.All the Bests!:)Veronika Kedei
We have been going to Tucker's Marketplace regularly to celebrate all sorts of occasions for over 30 years. We know we can count on the food being tasty and fresh always. The staff are always friendly and attentive to you. It's a great place to celebrate and to have a great meal.
The food was not what it used to be.
Birthday guest chose place. We are from restaurant background. Your kitchen and service stations are filthy. Roast beef was great. Pork and green beans good, the rest, Meehhh - 70s hasn’t left Tucker’s. But obv other people love it - the place was jammed.
Great buffet for the breakfast, lots of choice, good quality
Coffee is not included in the price though and you'll only know it when the bills arrive
Wish you would have a mixed vegetable dish sometimes.
The food was all very good, and we had amazing service making sure our water and drinks were always full and our plates were always cleared. The manager helped with dietary needs, and value for money is excellent.
There is no disability door to access the restaurant. Being a large chain that is a surprise. The management said cant do anything about it. Up to head office. So hope head office reads this!!!!
Large selection for lunch buffet. There’s a salad bar, taco bar, carve section, hot foods, crepe section and a dessert section, which includes ice cream.
