Whitewater Brewing Company- Lakeside Brew Pub
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.

Great location, super friendly staff and fantastic food! There beer is amazing as well! Noise level and music could be a bit lower as it sometimes requires you to shout to your friends for them to understand you!
I‘ll definitely return once I‘m in the area again!
Two friends, one who lives in North Bay Ontario and the other who lives in Boucherville, Quebec, met halfway in beautiful Cobden. A pleasant, tasty lunch at Lakeside Brew Pub and a walking tour of the town were unexpectedly delightful.
Fun evening. A tad disappointing when some menu items not available. This has happened on previous visits as well. No spring rolls, no curry. Salads were not as fresh as usual. Otherwise all good. Great service
Food was great! Beer was even better! Service was fabulous. Will definitely be back.
I truly enjoy the choices on the menu and the tasty prepared foods served in a casual manner and atmosphere.
First time visiting this restaurant. Definitely will not be our last
We had a great time everyone enjoyed themselves. The waitress was very helpful.The food was excellent.
We will return to try different menu items and different beers.
Service was friendly and attentive. The kitchen was busy, and our server came a few times to keep us up to date on our food. The beer was great, and the music was nice so the wait for the food wasn't an issue at all...especially once it arrived! It was excellent! Loved our fish tacos, and our burgers. And one of our party had the Arctic char and he highly recommends! All cooked perfectly and great presentation. We never felt rushed to leave our table. Will absolutely be back!
We went for a birthday supper and the food was amazing! Very friendly and helpful staff, quick service, and delicious meals. Very highly recommended!
Great lunch . Food was fresh and excellent. Would love to have larger serving dishes - found it awkward on small trays.
They were all out of chicken- likely because it is SO GOOD!!!! The fish tacos were amazing!!! My daughter had the duck breast/ she loved it- and the others had burgers- also exceptional! Great place to eat- reservations recommended!!!
Food was great with lots of choices, staff friendly and attentive, the beer was cold and refreshing! My wife and I liked the place so much we went twice in one week.
The food was good, the beer was excellent, and the staff were great. However... the restaurant has little ambiance and was very noisy when we were there: measured on a decibel app at 82-85 decibels, which can cause permanent hearing damage with prolonged exposure. This could be easily fixed by turning down (or OFF!) the musak so that patrons don't have to shout across their tables to be heard. In addition, the pricing on the menu of the "side upgrades" is very confusing. I wondered how many people end up with one or more unexpected "side" charges, as we did. Even the staff struggled to come up with a clear and simple explanation that made sense to us. This could be solved by clarifying things on the menu: for example, "Side of chips, $4" and "Side of chips with rosemary and truffle oil, $6." Easy.
Great food and atmosphere. I live 4 hours away and when I am in the area this is a definite stop. The beers are great and I can't say enough about the pesto chicken sandwich! Fresh and local ingredients, but that means they occasionally run out. I would rather everything be freshly made and them occasionally run out than to cook from frozen. Great experience!!
Love this place. I have been once for Mothers day and took my Girlfriend there most recently. Worth the drive from Ottawa. Great service, wonderful food and delicious beer.
Great home made food. Pleasant and efficient server. Casual family atmosphere.Huge portions. We will return often.
Been here two other times and were impressed. This time beer was warm, meat pie had a burned flavour, steak in steak sandwich was way over cooked and had a dirty grill taste. We ordered appetizers and a very short time later our meal was delivered even after telling the waitress we wanted some time in between. It was nice to have music but it was too loud to carry on a conversation. Had a difficult time hearing waitress. We were all leaning over to hear her and she made no effort to speak louder or come closer. We save this place to come for dinner for special occasions but can honestly say we will not come here for the next.
Worth the drive to Cobden from Norway Bay Quebec!! Service, food and beer great!
Excellent kids menu. Will be back!!
My husband and I had a much needed date night and everything was great! Food, entertainment and BEER! Highly recommend touch of tangerine Farmers Daughter!
Music on too loud side but otherwise was a nice casual setting
Everything was good but we did wait a long time for our food. We appreciated the friendly service and beer recommendations from the server.
All food was great but a bit pricey. Beer was great tasting
I will return again with friends as this was my second time and enjoyed it
Waitress was great, friendly always smiling
Great food, nice location and great decor. Will be back
The service was excellent. The waitress went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. We were a large group of 10 people. The food was absolutely amazing. Quality ingredients cooked to perfection. I won't go back to my old beer, I've converted to Whitewater Brewery beer. It was my first time there but definately went be the last. Will likely become a regular.
This was our first dinner out as Mom and daughter with significant others as hadn’t seen my daughter in 2 years. We live in Calgary, AB. Food was really good once someone took our order as we waited and waited for someone to even introduce themselves as apparently it was an oversight.
A very positive experience. Food was good. They have a great burger. Portion size is a little small for the price. Beer was tasty but not all that cold. Music was very good.
Scrumptious, healthy food and our waitress was very conscientious and caring! Highly recommend!
Amazing food and service! They have loud music on Saturdays starting at 7pm. The music can be too loud that your screaming at the people across from you so they can hear.
As always, the food, drinks, and service was outstanding. Great place to eat without having to go to the city.
Loved our visit. Food was great and the beer even better.
Love supporting this local business.
Certainly will be returning another day!
This was my second time visiting the Lakeside location, and made a reservation for Father's Day for a table for four using opentable. There was no record of our reservation at the Desk, however, after checking the computer, the reservation was there. We were seated immediately, but told there was a reservation for 6:00pm coming in. Our waiter, Brandon, was excellent! Very friendly, and engaged my young daughters in conversation as well. The beer was excellent, too. I ordered the steak sandwich, which had too much bread and not enough steak. I will go back, but I don't appreciate feeling rushed out the door.
Stopped in last weekend on the way to the cottage and liked it so much I booked a reservation for Father's day a week later. Worth a Sunday drive from Ottawa, great beer, great food, and great service. Try the seasonal tap, a classic Farmer's Daughter or a paddle sampler. The chicken fillets, burger and fish tacos were a hit and I really enjoyed my English breakfast. Will definitely be back.
A great place to dine and sip beer. Many options for their regular beers and seasonal brews. God is always good from the large appetizers to the main courses and tasty large enough to share desserts.
We made the trek because we love the food and décor. We were seated and offered a feature beer sample within minutes. The live entertainment was great music, but too loud for conversation and there was an order mix-up because communication was difficult due to the volume. The food arrived hot and was delicious. A few more trips to the table by our server to see if everything was alright would have been appreciated as we had to wait to resolve an order mix-up and the people who arrived later and were added on to our group had to signal for attention.
All in all a wonderful interlude of food-sharing and fellowship!
Great atmosphere, great beer and great food with friendly staff make Whitewater Brewery the spot to check out! Our meals were delicious and I highly recommend the elk burger!
People drinking two inches from our table, either sit at the bar or go away....very annoying. Felt more like a bar with food and not a family environment. Food was not hot. Veggies cold. There was several items they had run out of, not good. When we asked about beer, as we had never been there before, lady rambled on and on to the point we were lost. You need a hand out to explain your beer to new clients.
Great place for a fun time and an informal lunch. Good food, good atmosphere, and excellent staff.
The food was very good. We sampled a number of appetizers for our meal and they were all great. There was live music during dinner, which was an added bonus for us.
We were a family group of 6 adults visiting this area for the first time. We had a reservation and there was no problem with seating on arrival. Service was prompt and friendly. Our food was very good and served with aesthetic appeal. The ambiance was an interesting family style seating.
A couple of people in our group are beer lovers so this is why we chose a brew pub. The beers were interesting but lacked body and were a bit bitter to taste. The beer lovers in our group were not enticed to buy extra beer to bring home.
There was entertainment setting up before but we left to relax at our rental accommodation. I am sure it is a local drop in and quite enjoyable since the food is good. We think they need to work on the beer.
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!
