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.

My husband and I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is homemade, healthy and delicious. From the moment you come in the front door to the moment you leave you are treated with outstanding customer service. I would suggest if you do decide to try this restaurant that you make a reservation because it is usually quite busy.

Had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner. Fries were overdone, but thas is the first time we have ever had anything to complain about. We chalked it up to being very busy. We will still go back again.

I've been going to Chances R for many years and ahve introduced many friends to it. On Friday I was there with 3 women to honour a dear friend who recently passed away. It was one of her favourite places to go - for a meal, a cuo of tea or a plate of fries. We'd hang out for hours. (You probably wanted to show us the dooor sometimes). The #1 reason is your staff which is excellent - friendly, helpful and obviously very well trained as even the new staff members fit that description. (We've been served a few times by one waiter whom we find less than friendly and who was actually rude to us once but he is definitely the exception.) Too many businesses underestimate the importance of good customer service in getting repeat customers but you do not. Chances R is warm and comfortable. That might not seem like high praise and there are other places I go when I want a more exciting menu but I return often because of the staff, the decor and atmosphere. That the owners are very hands-on shows. Keep it up!

Chances R is my favourite restaurant! The food is always delicious and well presented. The service is friendly, quick and efficient. They don't make you feel rushed. I have a friend who has celiac and they have a separate menu that is gluten free and cater to her needs.

My siblings and I go to this restaurant every month for breakfast. We are treated like family. We always ask to be seated in Judy's section because she has become part of our family. She always gives us outstanding service and are greeted with a big hug every time - also when we leave. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience a super friendly atmosphere, good food and stellar service.

I have been going to Chances R for as long as it has been open and it has always been one of my favourite restaurants. I was a bit worried yesterday as I ordered my favourite beef dipper (which I order everytime I go) and they had changed the bun. However it was even better! See you soon again!

My party of seven thoroughly enjoyed our lunch this week. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. All of our dishes arrived at the same time and we were asked if they met our expectations. Our drinks were replenished throughout the meal. We all felt that we had received excellent value for our money and we will undoubtedly return!
