About Chances R Restaurant

In the spring of 1976, the Chances R first opened its doors in what was then called the Shopper’s City mall on the corner of Baseline Road and Woodroffe Avenue under the direction of the Ottawa 67’s Hall of Fame coach Brian Kilrea and shortly thereafter, Niagara College Hotel and Restaurant graduate Nick Bouris.

The restaurant was embraced immediately by the local community and quickly established its reputation in providing a casual dining atmosphere. Our menu offered a wide range of choices, with a strong emphasis of using the freshest and finest ingredients … a principle which holds true to this very day!

By the turn of the millennium, Brian and Nick began drawing up the blueprints for a new restaurant at the then future College Square. In March 2003, the newly designed Chances R opened its doors with unbound enthusiasm and with new addition to the partnership team, Mike Bouris.

Since then, the restaurant has received outstanding accolades and has served millions of customers. The Consumers Choice Award for “Ottawa’s Best Family Restaurant” had been awarded to Chances R for seven consecutive years. We are also extremely proud to be nominated in 2009 for the “Service Excellence Award” by the Nepean Chamber of Commerce and the “Lifetime Achievement Award” by the Ottawa Restaurant Association.



‘R’ Philosophy

To continue to improve, grow and innovate while being mindful of what brought us here in the first place. We pledge to continue to provide the finest ingredients in our meals with the same friendly service that you have been accustomed to for the past three decades.

Thank you for choosing ‘R’ restaurant.

Think it was our 3rd Valentine's day this year and enjoyed our meal immensely again. My husband and I have enjoyed breakfast here as well. Just disappointed no bun/bread included. Portions were perfect and we were glad to be able to bring our desserts home to enjoy. We hope to go next year as well.

A family restaurant with some Greek specialties. Very busy early in the evening (by 6:00pm), but the crowd thins out by 7:30 pm. Efficient service and good food.

We always enjoy our meals with you! I worked for Nick at the restaurant from September 1976 to June 1978 when they were new to Ottawa. Lots of great memories! I have introduced many new client to the restaurant over the years and never have been disappointed.

Found the room to be a bit noisy - sound defining needed. But, to be fair, the place was packed.

Cal is our usual server of late and she's delightful. Thanks for always putting us in the bar area. It's nice and private for our weekly retiree breakfast group. It gives us a chance to have a good visit with everyone. Food is good and always arrives hot.
