Temporary Home Page
Given the fluid situation in the world and especially our industry, OGC has taken and is continuing to take a number of steps to better serve our patrons and supporters. We are temporarily changing our website homepage to provide a single source where people can get all of the latest updates and information.

Per the Provincial Government’s Restoring Safe Services strategy (“RSSS”), restaurants in Manitoba are permitted to open their patio at 50% of their normal business levels. Notwithstanding the RSSS, many Manitobans are not comfortable attending public spaces until the risk to public health is further reduced. We understand this position and we appreciate the support we have received so far for our take-out and delivery services. We hope that individuals not comfortable attending public spaces will continue to trust our food preparation and continue the overwhelming support they have provided to date.
We also understand that there are individuals who are able to, and interested in, returning to their regular activities and routine. For those individuals, we have been working since the announcement of the RSSS to develop strategies to provide guests with the safest possible environment to enjoy the summer. We have completed the strategies and arranged the restaurant in such a way that we can provide a safe and fun environment for those looking to start returning to normal. To this end, OGC is opening its patio on Thursday, May 6. Our policies and changes are outlined below; we are asking all guests to familiarize themselves with these policies before attending the restaurant.
The restaurant will be divided into three areas: the lobby, the waiting area and the patio.
The patio has six tables with a maximum occupancy of 20 people. The largest group we can accommodate is six people. The tables have been carefully measured to ensure a separation of at least six feet. Guests are asked not to move the tables. Five of the tables are adjacent to heaters. Four of the tables can be under umbrellas/tents to provide shelter in the event it rains.
When guests enter the restaurant, they will be greeted by an OGC staff member who will advise them whether there is room in the waiting area or the patio. If there is room on the patio, the guest will be escorted to the patio and provided with a table. If the patio is full but there is room in the waiting area, the guest will be escorted to the waiting area and allowed to stay until a table on the patio is available. If both the patio and waiting area are full, the guest will be asked to wait outside until there is space available in the restaurant.
We are asking guests not to wait in the lobby as we are continuing to offer our food and beer through online delivery platforms and we need to keep this space available for the delivery drivers.
When guests want to leave, we are asking that they advise an OGC employee who will let them out the patio gate.
When using OGC’s restrooms, we are reminding customers to practice social distancing and limit themselves to one person at a time.
OGC’s original menu was designed to be adventurous while still being accessible. To this end, our talented kitchen team took their experience, from fine dining to food trucks, and applied it to pub food menu. The results were fantastic but they were designed to be enjoyed fresh, in our restaurant and as such, many items didn’t travel well. With this in mind, we have decided to change our menu for the time being to add one of the best foods for delivery: PIZZA!
Style: the type of pizza we are offering is known as Detroit-style pizza. What makes this pizza style unique is its crust which is square, thick crispy and chewy. What makes our unique are our gourmet toppings including roasted broccoli, truffle oil and house made meatballs. Click HERE for the full menu!
Ordering: orders can be placed directly with OGC or through one of our delivery platform partners described below. Due to the preparation required for this style of pizza, we only have limited amount each day so order early!
Delivery & Take Out
Kitchen: our food can be ordered directly with OGC for pickup (receiving a 15% discount) or on all of the delivery platforms listed below. If you place a take out order, you can add any beer or wine you would like as well. You are welcome to come into the restaurant to pick up beer or food (we have plenty of social distancing protocols in place to keep everyone safe) but we also offer curbside pickup with a credit card. Just CALL the restaurant in advance to place your order.
Retail Store: our retail store is open packaged good, growlers and howlers. We will fill yor growler or howler but will need to run it through our dishwasher adding about five minutes to the overall fill time.
Beer Delivery: our beer delivery form is located HERE. We have all of our core pours available in cans and we have all of our beers (including seasonales) available in howlers and growlers. Contactless delivery is also available.
Online Delivery Platforms: OGC’s food is available on Skip the Dishes, DoorDash and Uber Eats. Our beer is also available for delivery on Skip the Dishes. Click below to be sent directly to our online delivery menus:
Our Retail Store is open:
- Monday to Thursday – 2:00pm – 9:00pm

Our Kitchen is open:
- Tuesday to Thursday – 2:00pm – 4:00pm (limited menu) 4:00pm – 9:00pm (full menu)

Re-Opening: Currently Manitoba is doing well compared to the rest of the world with regards to COVID-19. However, a large part of this has to do with closure of dining rooms such as ours and citizens taking it upon themselves to socially distance. We will open once we can provide an environment that is safe for our guests and our employees.
