When we first opened our doors in 1988, we couldn’t have imagined how The Glen would grow in the years to come! We started out in Kanata in a small space we called The Glen Cafe. In 1995 we expanded next door, adding seats, staff and more great times with our family, friends and customers. In 2009 we were happy to welcome Kathleen’s son James to our team and in 2010 we moved to our new location here in Stittsville.

Mayor Jim Watson and Councillor Shad Qadri will be on hand to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of The Glen, Monday, March 5, 2018. (5:00 -10:30pm)

The celebrations will include an authentic Scottish band and bagpipes, hourly door prizes including tickets to Rod Stewart and The Glen gift cards.

A portion of the night’s proceeds will go to, The Kanata and Stittsville food cupboard.

The success of The Glen has always rested on their famous fish and chips. Today, healthier options and new creative twists on Scottish classics give customers more choices than ever before.

Join the family – Kathleen, Luciana, John and James – as they celebrate 30 years of Scottish hospitality.

Haste ye back!

(The Glen is at 6081 Hazeldean Rd. in the Jackson Trails Plaza, beside the LCBO. You can visit them online at

  1. Oh my goodness. One of my favourite local restaurants was absolute crap when Mom and I were there earlier this week. James, Kathleen and I believe his (James’) aunt, whose name I can’t remember, were not there. The fish was tasteless. Thank goodness for tartar sauce. The salad was fine but needed to be cut with a knife. No problem. We had knives. Thank you James for putting the haggis in pastry shells back on the menu. I enjoyed them and actually got my mother to try one and she too said it was tasty. I thank you again for going to Ale to get them for me when you told me you would have them for me the next time I was in at the Glen and asked for them but they weren’t there. I have been going to the Glen since it opened in Bell’s Corners. My paternal family is from Glasgow and New Stevenston (near Motherwell, Scotland). Neither of us have the accent but we have the heart. I took Mom to the last Robbie Burns day celebration at your restaurant – known to you as Rabbie Burns day. I want to take her again but she was just diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I hope we can make it. Apparently not. I just saw that it was sold out.
