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.

Have been going with a large group for over 35 years and still the best quality food and awesome service. Best place in town and excellent staff. While I now live an hour outside the city I still go there frequently. Breakfast amazing and dinner nachos, spaghetti a la Chances R and ribs fabbo. Thank you

A group of 22 nurses enjoyed breakfast on Wednesday , November 6, 2019. We could not have had breakfast anywhere else that could be compared to Chances R. A perfect venue for celebrating the 18th anniversary of our monthly breakfasts. It has been unanimously agreed that Chances R is the best restaurant for us to continue having our monthly 'class breakfasts'! Thank you

They were very accommodating when I made the reservation and requested a quieter spot as my father has trouble hearing in noisy environments. The food was delicious and our server was extremely pleasant and friendly. I’ll be back!

We arrived 3/4 hour earlier than our reservation time - I was with a 91 yr old family member and although the restaurant was very busy, we got seated after only a very short wait. The service was EXCELLENT, food was great and overall a wonderful experience.

All 12 of us have a great time. Food and drink was excellent. May I suggest that you get the line of Sleeman’s beers on the bar.
