Westwinds Restaurant opened its doors in 1989, as part of the Best Western Pembroke Inn & Conference Centre Family. Since that day it has grown into a favourite dining establishment for travelers, hotel guests and residents of the Ottawa Valley area, year after year!
Some of the most talented people in the hospitality industry are behind the scenes constantly adding spice and variety to the Westwinds experience. We’ve also added some very popular features and events, bringing another level to your dining experience.
In 2013 new owners purchased Westwinds. First on the agenda was to hire a chef, more servers and develop a new menu. Since the menu is the star, it will need to be revisited regularly so that improvements can be made as required according to guest feedback. If there are unpopular menu items, they’re removed—if there’s popular menu items, we take that as good news and may expand in these areas. To improve on the dining aspect, restaurant renovations were made in 2015 that included a new bar, booth seating, flooring and paint. Ongoing improvement efforts are aimed at adding more value to patrons.
A Passion to Serve Home-Cooked Meals
In the day of processed franchise foods, privately owned restaurants with that home-cooked freshness are sought after by foodies. Whether you’re staying at the Best Western Pembroke Inn, a community member or a traveler passing through the Pembroke area, eating is a requirement. Taking it a step further; healthy eating makes the body grow stronger. Achieving a balance of nutritional, affordable and tasty menu items along with great service has to be the foundation of memorable restaurant experiences. “Let’s create greatness for families, social gatherings and meeting attendees that will not be forgotten anytime soon.” -Management
It is fair to say a Westwind’s experience should meet or exceed the above statements, it is our aim to make it so.
As part of the Best Western family, Westwinds “makes it so” for your dining pleasures. With a menu of freshly prepared items, experienced chef and friendly servers — home cooked flavours are the star of Westwinds. Serving social gatherings, meeting attendees, wedding parties or any large group is no problem. Our menu, staff and service are going to make your event or individual experience the same…outstanding! The concept of a good menu with good service is at the heart of Westwind’s vision.
The food you eat should not only taste good but it should feel good in your tummy. It should offer your appetite the quenching affect it needs, along with the nutritional requirements your body needs to see the world around you with clarity. Food (diet) is a part of your well-being which is why we say our menu is the first star.
Experience the Difference
If you’re just passing through the Ottawa Valley, staying at the Best Western Pembroke or a community member come on by. Satisfy your hunger for a fresh meal, unwind at the bar or just relax with a few drinks. If there’s no desire to cook or it’s time to eat something different let Westwinds offer your appetite a home cooked meal in a pleasant atmosphere.
Want your meals on the go? No problem, that freshly prepared meal is available for take out or room service for hotel guests.
Want to enjoy special occasions like Birthdays, Anniversaries, Achievements, Weddings etc.? No problem, Westwinds can accommodate to over 250 guests. If that’s not enough space for your event the hotel is owned by the same people who take pride in being part of the best experiential events.
Sometimes a shift of mood or change in environment is all that is needed to get things back on track.
