About the restaurant
Spark Beer and Pizza opened in 2020 with a goal to produce and serve the best lagers, hoppy, sour and Belgian influenced beers possible. Owners Andrea and John have lived in and around Chinatown for over 20 years and, along with chef Jeff, set up shop steps away from the beautiful Chinatown archway. Their beers have won many awards including their 3 time Ontario Brewing Awards winning Manhire Berliner Weisse (gold 2021, gold 2022, silver 2023).

Spark started serving 'west centretown' pizzas in November of 2022 and now offer a variety of pizzas all served on house-made cold fermented dough with the best toppings we can find.

Stop by and enjoy our fun, cozy taproom and pizzeria*!

What a fun and booming little spot! The pizza (picked the potato one!) was different, fresh and the crust was wonderful. The beers were great! Our waitresses, the music, and the cleanliness of the downstairs basement washrooms sealed the deal on a marvellous evening. First time but definitely not the last!!

Montana's Ottawa - Barrhaven celebrates fun-to-eat, finger-licking smoked and barbecued comfort food that breaks the 'proper' rules.

Probably my 6th or 7th time I've eaten at a Crust and Crate, and yet do I have to be disappointed!

We went for a ladies’ brunch. Prohibition’s brunch menu is not huge, but offers some unique and appealing choices. Brown butter pancakes and several variations of eggs Benny were enjoyed by all. Our server was personable and attentive. The mimosas, tea and coffee were very good. We sat outside on the lovely tree covered patio. It was a bit noisy at times because it was race weekend and there was a fair bit of traffic- by foot and vehicle- but that was to be expected. I will happily go back any time, and highly recommend Prohibition to anyone looking to indulge in delicious food and drink.

About the restaurant
First came the pub, cheap drinks and cheaper food, then came the gastropub, an import from Britain featuring upmarket pub grub in a ale-drinking setting. Now, welcome The Waverley, which further blurs the lines between restaurant, social house and bar. The Waverley is the culmination of where the industry is heading; amazing food, unreal cocktails, cool vibes, laidback staff that know their products and what they are doing, refined tastes at affordable prices and zero smugness and attitude. Just a place to chill, drink, eat and hangout while listening to the dopest music you never heard.

For our love of food, art, music & libations.

Gorgeous ambience! Music only got a bit too loud around 11, which makes sense. Waitress was absolutely lovely, always popping by quickly to check in. Very fast service. Hope to go again!
