Welcome to Canadaís !ONLY! Authentic Southern Style, American Soul Food Restaurant. Established in Hallville, Ontario, Jean Albertís (owned and operated by Jennifer and LeRoy Walden)has expanded to a brand new location in downtown Ottawa on Somerset St. LeRoy, who has immigrated here to Canada from the US, has brought his Great Great Grandmotherís Authentic, Southern recipes with him for us to enjoy. Do not be mistaken for Creole which is more indigiounous to Louisiana, and much more spicey. Jean Albert's refers more to a Georgian, Alabama, Carolina culture of eating.
Since Jean Albertís opening on Canada Day 2008, people have been positive about the Home-Cooked food. When you walk into Jean Albertís, the music and atmosphere take you back in the day where everything used to be country and soulful.
Being at Jean Albert's is more like being at Grandma's house where you sit in the dining or living room, listen to Motown, and enjoy the old fashioned way of eating.
Come visit Jean Albertís today for dine-in, take-out, or just to fake that family, home-made dinner so you donít have to cook tonight. Between the Fried Chicken, Catfish, Ribs, Pulled Pork, BBQ Sauces, and Sweet Water Corn Bread there is something on the menu for anyone in the family to enjoy.

Breakfast will start on a later date at Jean Albert's. We are the 1st place in Canada to ever serve chicken and waffles. Stay in touch to find out when it's coming.

First we want to thank everyone for their positive support, and we would like to thank the negative ones for sending more people out to try LeRoy's amazing dishes. This has led us to an amazing accomplishment and we are expanding to a new location in downtown Ottawa on Somerset St. @ Lyon.

The Hallville location is now Closed for good.

We are excited and trying our hardest to open by the first weekend in April 2010.

See you soon, keep us in your prayers.
