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.

Brought my mum here for a belated mother's day lunch and LOVED the food! Fresh, original and full of flavour... (and great with the beer :)). Will be back when in the region again for sure!

Brought my Mom here for Mother's Day Brunch. Despite a minor mix-up at the retail shop afterward while refilling our growlers, the meal was excellent. My second time eating at the Lakeside Pub, and it did not disappoint. We each had the traditional breakfast, and remarked several times about how tasty the Stout Potatoes and Sausages were. Will definitely be making it a regular visit!

My husband and I come into town for a mountain bike event each Mother’s Day weekend and for the past 3 (4 maybe) years we’ve made a point of having dinner at Whitewater. We have never been disappointed - the food is fabulous, beer is amazing and it’s a really fun place to dine!

Went to the restaurant for Mother's Day, food was fantastic, a little loud due to live entertainment. But over all. Great dining experience.

nice to bring beer home for dessert as well. will be back for sure

Reservation method was very good and when we got there our table was ready.
After that everything went down hill.
The guy playing country music was very very loud and could not sing. Hope you didn't pay him much. Ask to change table but all tables where in the small room where this want a be singer was, so that was not an option. Waitress went and asked to lower the volume as she found him louder then usual, he wouldn't. After my husband and I had to scream to one another on what we wanted to do, we decided to leave. Not the way we wanted to celebrate our anniversary dinner yelling at one another for conversation. After waiting a long time to have the chance to go have dinner at your establishment we where very and extremely disappointed. Never even got the chance to taste any of the food which we where told was delicious.
There is a few things I now understand one is why it is so hard to get reservations not many tables and if you have entertainment you should notify them that it's a very small room and not a banquet hall that holds four hundred people where they have to play at there loudest capability.
It will be an anniversary dinner I hope to forget we ended up across the street and had a some what pleasant evening with lots of conversation even though they also had music playing.
So overall to say we will not recommend your establishment not because the food isn't good because we never got to taste it! but because the atmosphere was terrible.
Very disappointed customer from Eganville.

What a great place! Perfect for beer lovers! Not fancy though. It's very lively, if you want a place where you don't mind sitting on wood bench (there is chairs too!). Awesome for families, when it's packed, it's noisy. No romantic candle light supper, lol. I had one of their delicious burger, i tried elk meat, which is awesome! I opted for veggies instead of fries, and the asparagus and carrots were just perfect! I unfortunately forgot to take pictures 😕 which i usually do... next time! Because I AM going there again one day! 👍

I have had both breakfast and lunch here. Both were very nice experiences. Staff was friendly. The food was lovely and not too expensive. Best of all was the ability to try their local brews while enjoying their changing menu.

Three of us drove to Cobden to eat at the Whitewater Brewery Pub. The place is usually busy so we reserved a table through their web site. We were greeted with a smile and promptly seated. The food came quickly and was very tasty. Each of us enjoyed our meal. There was nothing left on our plates. We will definitely be returning to this pub.

The Farmers Daughter beer keg was unavailable, as were the wings, and other items on the menu. The fries were sparse, compared to other times we had been there, and the steak sandwiches were heavy on the bread and light on the steak, and difficult to eat. After we got home we both felt bloated and uncomfortable for hours. Prices for the food have increased with the new menu, but quality has decreased. The beer is usually good, but 2 types we asked for were unavailable. Had to order one I wasn’t really fond of. I have to say that our server was pleasant, attentive and apologetic about the shortfalls, and did a great job. But I doubt we will be back any time soon to pay nearly $60 for 2 sandwiches, a few fries and a couple of glasses of beer.

Can’t even give it any stars! Worst meal we have ever eaten! Way overpriced!
I don’t think they paid the heat bill we had to leave our coats on to eat!

I was disappointed. I had heard a lot of good things about the restaurant. The fish and chips that we got were over cooked, the music was too loud for the size of the venue, and I found the service sub par, I wasn't even offered water. I won't be going back.

Our visit on the 22nd was not nearly as spectacular as the last time we dined.
We had been lusting over the sensational bread and olives, but found the price had gone up $2, for unexciting bread, not the lovely intense dense bread we had had before. Wouldn't order this item again.
My duck breast was disappointing. Last time it was beautifully presented on layers of rice, roasted veggies, with an orange/cranberry reduction. This time it was plonked on the plate, with old potatoes which didn't enhance the dish, and a couple of carrots and brocollini. Itwas topped with a miniscule amount od chutney.
Fish and chips were good.Service great.

Am going to give this place one more try on the 5th, and see if we just hit an off night.
