Whitewater Brewing Company was founded by three good friends in 2011 on the banks of the Mighty Ottawa River. The three of us have had many adventures that have taken us from the incredible rivers of Ontario & Quebec to the mountain-fed creeks of British Columbia, from the deep canyons of the Colorado River, to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. One constant that has remained strong throughout this journey is our return to the heart of the Ottawa Valley to share our great adventures with great friends.
Our epiphany came on a rafting trip: The Ottawa Valley was already home to some of the best natural ingredients involved in creating true hand-crafted beer, as well as great people deserving of a local beer to share with friends. Whitewater Brewing Company was conceived.
My friend, you are now a part of the story, it’s time for you and our beer to tell the rest.

We had a large group for lunch - brunch, so the food took a long time to arrive at the table. Tables that sat down after us served food first. Saying that, we go to to the pub or the farm every time we are in the area because we love the menu, food and the beer!!!!!!!

Our entire experience at Whitewater Brewing Company was amazing. We had a lunch reservation and tour arranged in advance and timing was great. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Food was fresh and delicious. Our tour took place following our meal. Robin was very informative and very passionate about the products produced. Our overall experience was great and would return when we are in the area. We are hoping that our next visit to the Ottawa area this summer will be to their smaller location down the river. Cheers to Whitewater Brewing Company and thank you to all the staff who made our experience a great one!

Good.
But need to pay attention to burnt toast. Dont serve it.
And gluten free menu had to be redone. Due to Error.

Thanks.
Enjoy our meal otherwise.
Glad to have a great place to celebrate.

Our server was stretched way to thin...should have been more staff on. Found we were yelling during our meal...maybe the entertainment starts a bit too early??

Food was ok...certainly not the best meal we have had there.

The food was delicious. I know when we booked a reservation it advised that we may sit at the community table, there should be an option to have a private table at the time of booking. It’s VERY loud...even before the live music started.

Everything was about what I expected from the experience. I had two suggestions to improve the experience. 1) Put in a double door entrance so the outside air doesn't just blow into the restaurant. 2) Make sure the planks of wood in the tables are flush with each other. It was not a nice sight to see the crumbs and spills of previous meals stuck down in the crevices.

The food and service are great. The food is all locally sourced (as best as possible) and just plain delicious. The live music was great, but does make conversation a little difficult. I will be back for sure.

Was there after a hockey game with most of the team, unfortunately they had trouble accommodating approximately 12 people, service was very slow and the waitress was overwhelmed with # of people she was serving. I have always had a great meal there but staffing or lack of staff and how they interact with customers needs to be addressed to make this a five star experience.

Good food and service. Table had flowers and lit a candle nice touch for my date. Noise level rated loud because there was a musician playing guitar - not a complaint! Freshest beer ever, awesome burger, good entertainment and a beautiful girl across my table. Best. Date. Ever.

Fantastic place! Went in with a group of 6, on Feb.22nd, reservations were for 6pm. We had an amazing waitress!! She went ABOVE and beyond to describe everything on the menu, offered up samples, she was great.
We had the large sampling appetiser platter, amazing! All 6 of us raved about HOW great our food was, the beer was delicious, specialty coffees were to die for.
The atmosphere was so fun. Great one man band, played some awesome covers. Loved the look inside as well.
Well done. That was worth driving 2.5 hours for. Will most definitely be back!

Delish! We had gone a few weeks prior and the food wasn't amazing (which we knew wasn't standard, as every time we've gone it's been great.) We decided to bring some guests for dinner, and this time the food was fantastic!

Food was just okay. Too expensive for the quality. Got a side of gravy which was basically chicken water. They only have house ketchup which was odd tasting. Wasn’t aware that pop refills were not free as well. Server didn’t really pay attention to the entire table and seemed to want to rush us out. I’ve been a few times before and it was better. Maybe an off night?

I have been several times to Whitewater Brewery. This visit however was a little disappointing. The food took a very long time to come out. Once our food came out the portion size was very, very small. I ordered broiled fish with vegetables. It was not worth the $25 plus tax I paid. Also, just found the live entertainment far too loud; as we could not carry on a conversation. The waitress was friendly and her service was good.

My burger was over cooked and my wife’s fish taco meal was cold. We have been many times. I feel this was just an off visit. We will be back

Restaurant was cold inside..we had to leave our winter coats on. The food was also really cold (eggs, hashbrowns and sausage. The toast was barely toasted and also cold). Our server was very friendly.

Music was too loud (as usual) to carry on conversation with friends; which is why we were there. Other than that it was awesome.

Seven of us stuffed ourselves with some tasty food, drank great beers, wine and martinis (our guests loved the Astrolabe beer) and really enjoyed the live music (Dale Yuke). Always a good atmosphere!
