About Whitewater Brewing Company- Lakeside Brew Pub

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.

1 of 4 meals (steak) was less than 10 ounces and over cooked. One of our group got a proper sized and perfectly prepared steak. After tasting the other good steak prompted our friend to complain. In response to the complaint, manager weighed the remainder of his steak and gave us a percentage discount. Is that your policy to share the blame with the customer for your improperly prepared food? The waitress gave the same customer the wrong beer. We left angry with the condescending attitude of the manager. He came to our table twice with a toothpick hanging out of the corner of his mouth. He was very unprofessional and we all left extremely upset and it spoiled our evening. I have been very active and promoting member of our community for over 40 years as School Board Trustee, municipal councillor, Lions Club member, Whitewater Bromley community health center Chair and the list goes on. I would like to see your business succeed and would like to promote, support and recommend your restaurant however your manager needs customer relations training.

I had told my fiancé all year that I wanted to go to the Whitewater Brewery in Cobden for my birthday dinner. It did not disappoint! Our food was amazing and the drinks were on point as always! My fiancé even said it was the best burger he’d ever had! I think it has become our new favourite go to spot!

First time and loved it. Loved that they use local ingredients for their food and have different things on the menu you don't typically see (scotch egg, elk burger were two things we ordered). Very impressed with the food. Would definitely go back and will recommend!

Excellent overall, we frequent this restaurant regularly with always good experiences. Some time ago I was served a lemon white chocolate cheese cake. I would come back immediately if this was served again. I had a steak, medium rare, perfectly done. To up the game on the dish a small amount of puree on the bottom of this particular meal could be added, would really bump things up a notch.

Food was good but Falafal Burger was not the same as what we were served the last time we were here. Did not look at all the same and did not taste as good either. Server was slow to serve us and when our friends joined us assumed we did not want to refresh our drinks when in fact we did. Find the food is quite expensive for what it is. Love the atmosphere of the place and the hum of activity.

We went here for my husband's 40th birthday. The food, service, and ambiance was wonderful.
The gentleman doing the trivia was interactive, and involved my 5 year old daughter in collecting the trivia ballots.
She enjoyed helping out, and I loved how he made her feel welcome.
What a wonderful place!

So we are new to the area and we have only been to the white water brewery in Cobden three times. Every time we to the brewery it is always an amazing experience, I don't know if you will share this review with your staff or not but on this time we visited with my in-laws on there 35th wedding anniversary. they ordered two of your taster trays of beer, we went with one of the waitress's suggestions and now my mother in-law has a new favorite. So thank you so much, we are heading to there place for thanksgiving and we have to stop off and pick up some "famers daughter" for them in Toronto. So again Thank you so much to our amazing waitress. Also the amazing kitchen staff always amazing food!! love you guys can't wait to stop by again!!

I hate to say negative things about an establishment. We have been going to this restaurant since just after it opened. They started off well. Now, 10 months or so later, we are very dissatisfied. The food is very expensive for small portions of just-ok food. The final straw for me was that they charged me for a refill on a cup of coffee! Who does that???!! I'm sorry to say that the ownership is heading down the wrong path. This was our last visit there. It just isn't worth the money they're charging now in terms of value for dollar spent. Again, I'm really sorry to say this. We used to enjoy dining at the Whitewater Brewery Pub. No longer.

Our recent visit there was great, we were greeted and orders taken within the first 15 minutes upon arrival. As usual the place was packed and there was live music which was awesome. Our food arrived in a prompt timely manner and it was delicious. The only downfall was the temperature of the building....it was SOOO HOT inside. That is my only complaint, other than that it was amazing food, great drinks and awesome live entertainment!

We took guests from New York with us for dinner and they were very impressed with the food (mediterranean couscous salad, elk burger, etc.), loved the IPA and said the atmosphere and live music (Jimmy Tritone?) would be like something you might experience in NYC but even friendlier :-). Needs a little acoustic dampening (echoey) but I think they are working on that.
