Couldn't be happier with how our event turned out. - An Eventective User from Ottawa, ON

We held a celebration-of-life for my mom here and it turned out to be an excellent choice. An interesting and beautiful location right on the Ottawa River on a gorgeous day in late fall. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and courteous. Several of our guests would like to return for an evening meal because they live nearby. A true hidden gem...

Very helpful staff - An Eventective User

Great location helpful and nice staff would recommend and will use again

Perfect Baby Shower Venue! - An Eventective User

I held a baby shower in the Rideau Room for my sister and I can't express to you what a wonderful time we had. The room itself is beautiful and was set up perfectly by Chelsea and her team. She was so helpful in making sure that we had all of the food, drinks, and information that we needed. She made preparing an absolute breeze - even though I live 5 hours away and had never seen the space in person before - and the afternoon could not have gone any better. All of our guests were raving about what a great time they had! Thank you so much to Chelsea and the staff at The Bridge Public House for helping us to celebrate my sister! It was a perfect afternoon!
