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.

We were 12 dining after a funeral (a cheerful celebration of life actually). Eric was fab, he replaced my chilly fries immediately. All else was good.

I have had breakfast and lunch numerous times at Chances R. Yesterday I ordered an omlette for breakfast at a cost of close to $10 and then was charged an extra $2.49 for a cup of coffee. This is not right.

We had a lovely time on the patio and our server was very nice. Also, I was able to enjoy a gluten-free meal. Awesome that gluten-free meals are available at ChancesR. Thank you!

Our server was prompt, friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. We were there during a busy time and our food was received in a good amount of time. Only draw back was that it was in the loud side so it made it had to hear the conversation at the table. We really enjoyed the pumpkin patch out front!

Our waiter was very attentive and patient given the big group. He was also efficient and helped to make our experience a real pleasure. Chances R has become our favourite extended family destination. We also appreciated being given our favourite table when we requested it. A wonderful experience. Thank you.

Delicious food, friendly and efficient service. Topped the meal off with the lava chocolate cake and a specialty coffee. Perfect way to end it! My only negative was the bathroom which could have been cleaner and tidier.

The restaurant was extremely busy with several large groups, which made it difficult to hear ourselves talk. I know that, as we get closer to the holiday season, this will be even more of an issue. However, we still like to go there because of the consistently good food and service.

We always enjoy dining at Chances R. Our mother just loves your pizza! And the rest of us enjoy the food and friendly service too:) On this visit, I didn't enjoy the diet coke. It smelled and tasted funny. In the end I couldn't drink it and wasn't charged for it. Our server had offered to bring me something else but I ended up just having water as there are not many sugarless choices.

The Hession siblings get together every month for breakfast to catch up on each other's lives. We always sit in Judy's section - she is an amazing server and person - we love her and consider her part of our family. Can't think of a better place to get together. Thank you Elizabeth Hession

Chances R hosted our baby's baptism last Sunday and the experience was exceptional! The food was great and the staff were super attentive and accommodating to all our requests. Mike helped us a lot in the planning stage to choose a menu and was super quick to respond to our inquiries. We won't hesitate to plan other events at Chances R in the future!
