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.
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.
Nick Bouris, Mike Bouris and Brian Kilrea
Everything was of the most highest possible standard - reception - atmosphere - food presentation - actual food - etc
My girlfriend ordered a greek pita, however, the waitress got it mixed up and out came greek fish! Being a fish eater, the GF didn't mind and ate the fish...the waitress charged my friend the lower price for the pita and not the yummy looking fish dish! Thanks for that!
Great server, she was able to accommodate us with a person with a disability.
Service is always first rate and accomodating. I appreciated being able to make a reservation on-line and after hours. Tables are a bit close and so loud voices are intrusive. Food was tasty and fresh.
Great deal for Prime Rib. Roasted potatoes are incredible. An option for bread or side salad with their meal would be competitive with other restaurants.
The service was excellent - our waiter was very attentive.
Good value, great food, great service, friendly staff
I was impressed with the lack of violations for the health dept inspections. It s rare to see a restaurant with a clean record. Waitress did a great job. We'll be back. This was my first visit but not my last.
Celebrating my Mom's birthday, we all had a great time!
The food and service were both great as always.
Excellent food and service as always!!
Excellent experience at ChancesR this past Friday. From start to end, the customer service was superb. We were greeted warmly and the service and food were delicious! Arizona wrap really hit the spot :) Would definitely recommend this restaurant for any one looking for a family friendly, casual outing. Lots of room, lots of menu options - and great service to boot! What more could you ask for? Thanks for a great afternoon!
Quiche by Gus was delicious. Service by George was great.
Chi was amazing as always. Thanks for always having us and treating us so well! We love coming to Chances R. See you again soon! Sarah and Amanda
Great Waitress, Janet I think. She sensed my friend and I hadn't met in a long time so she didn't rush us but was there when needed. Nice to be seated by Brian himself!
The Arizona wrap was one of the best wraps I've ever had!
We come for brunch always every weekend! Thanks
friendy professional services; great breakfast
Always great food and excellent service.
Great service and good food Hostesses great too
The service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent as always. One person in our party said she had brought out of town guests to your restaurant three times this week because she can always count on your good service and wonderful food choices. No wonder you've been in business for over 40 years. Well done Chances R!
Good food value and service.
