Thought we were in luck with gluten free options for a celiac, but the food was burnt after almost an hour wait. No refills on our drinks or any water. Should have walked out but it was so late we sent my husbands inedible nachos back and he nibbled on my probably glutened fires while I ate a burnt burger.

This is a very noisy sports bar with as many TVs as there are chairs -- slight exaggeration. Limited menu but extensive beer menu, The food was fine but the lunchtime service left a lot to be desired -- took a long time for our food to arrive. We had our Groupon on the table -- maybe that was it.

We had a special here the other night that was one appetizer, and two meals for $20. The food was great! And they have a pretty good selection of beer. Not a bad pub choice for Kensington.

Friends and I met for dinner here for dinner. It was ok. Friendly Staff and so mediocre food. Might give it another chance...

We stopped for a quick bite while strolling through trendy Kensington area. Not so quick as it took almost an hour to get a burger which when it arrived was basically burnt and tasteless. Thank goodness we had ordered only one to share as the portions were huge. The fries however were awesome. since we didn't want to wait another... More

A very nice restaurant on the main drag in the Kensington area of Calgary.... a 10 minute walk from downtown. Friendly staff and honest....waitresse chased me down the street when I left my travel bag behind. A large varied bill of fare, reasonably priced. Tables outside front and in rear open courtyard, with large dining area inside. Well worth a... More

We went there a few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon after shopping in Kensington. The wine was okay, ordered Appetizers and the waitress did not bring us any cutlery, not even napkins, when we asked for them, she looked at us like we were insane and bothering her. After that we never saw her until it was time to... More

We have stopped here several times on our way home from work, for a wind-down pint and some nibbles. We generally have no problem getting served with a drink. But after delivery of the first round, the wait staff almost always seem to be completely unavailable. It looks as if they don't have enough people on the floor, but I... More

A Groupon brought me and a friend to the Yardhouse. Our server was excellent! The Saskatchewan beer was on special, very good & cold. The nachos were delicious, I would order them again. Fresh guacamole & salsa provided bursts of fresh flavour. Don't know what it's like in the evening as we were there for post lunch. There was a... More
