Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Oh my goodness! Beaver tails are sooo tasty! You can choose from a wide range of toppings which is great. Eating them can be a bit messy and challenging but it is worth it!

We read you had to try the beaver tails, so we went to this place. You had many choices. It is a walk up with lots of seating in the area. It's located in the By-ward Market. Take a trip over. There's lots of shopping,...restaurants and vendors on the streets. Also bike friendly.More

Very tasty - I had maple, and my partner had bananarama. The maple was lovely. Hot and freshly baked.

Nice service. Lousy and pricy food. The apple pie beavertail dripped down and was hard to eat. The Nutella beavertail was all melted, messy and we threw it out. Verbals the donut portion is too hot for the toppings. It doesn’t work well and is...very hard to eat. Especially on the street. Walk half a block west and there are better bakeries! If we had only known!More

An absolute tourist trap, but had to be done! The Beavertails were delicious. We also had the slushy lemonade which was excruciatingly sweet. (Everything in Canada to our English taste buds seems to be really salty or sweet). The guy serving wasn't exactly a bundle...of joy but it's counter service so it didn't matter too much.More

A must try !!!!! I really love it. It was so yummy. I went there with friends so we got to try many flavors and all of them were nice. Prepare to get yourself messy a bit with the sauce esp chocolate but it is...really nice.More

Wow! This Canadian treat is absolutely amazing! There were four of us and we all tried a different flavor, from original to not original. We loved them all!

Definitely worth trying the Beaver Tails. They are made fresh so are hot and gooey when you bite into them - crispy at the centre and soft round the edges. Between hubby and me we tried the classic (cinnamon and sugar), lemon (comes as a...slice you squeeze over the classic) and maple syrup. We enjoyed them all. Only reason I didn't rate this a 5 is that the service was rather average, staff did not seem interested in engaging with customers.More

Went to the new location in Mississauga off of Eglinton. Totally disappointing. About a 1/3 of the size of original beaver tail. Not sure why you would put a hot sticky dessert on top of a napkin in the box when it already had wax...paper inside? For the price and the size received I will never go back. TOTAL LETDOWNMore

These are so good. It’s not a doughnut, way better in two ways. First, it’s crispy on the outside. Second, it’s light and airy on the inside. When in Ottawa, make sure you try one of these delicious local delights.

Nothing compares to a BeaverTail. Very unique and most delish. Love the strawberry cheesecake and maple ones. Try it and you will be hooked!

Was OK. Worth trying once. But found it on the pricey side for what you get - some deep-fried dough. We liked the plain with cinnamon & sugar the best.

We had the classic Beaver Tail which is a fried pastry dough in the shape of a beaver tail topped with cinnamon and sugar. It was good, but other than the shape, I didn’t think it was anything special. It was overhyped. There are many...different toppings, so perhaps a different topping would’ve been more appealing.More

Yep - and there are multiple locations in the winter on the Canal. Go skating, have a beaver tail. Start with a killaloe sunrise then try a different flavour.
