About

History

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 some new additions to the partnership team, Mike Bouris and Matt Moore.

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.

Nick Bouris, Mike Bouris, Matt Moore and Brian Kilrea
