Open Range is the most interesting and eclectic steakhouse I've ever been to. The exterior architecture and interior decor is something out of the 1960s. High-back clubby chairs in the dining room make for an intimate dining experience. The lighting and music are perfectly balanced, and while the restaurant was full, it was easy for people to have their private... More

The exterior appearance may suggest to keep on driving, but once inside we were not disappointed. We landed in from Asia in the afternoon and checked into our B&B just a short distance away. Kelly, the proprietor at the B&B, recommended this place for its less than common meat dishes. My son & his wife drove down from Red Deer... More

Went into Open Range not sure what to expect. Food was amazing, such a diverse menu. Vegetarians need not apply. Pretty much all wild types of meat, Bison, Lamb, Elk etc. A Southwestern flare has influence as well in the food. Amazing, Service Wonderful! Bison Burger, so lean and yummy. Friend had a Bison dish baked with White Cheese, so... More

My husband and I went to Open Range the week before Valentine's day to avoid the crammed restaurants and sub-standard service. This was the best choice. The restaurant wasn't too busy with a good atmosphere. I would describe it as rustic and comfortable. Although the menu isn't extensive, everything sounds delicious. I usually only order one meal, but we ended... More

I was looking for something different than what was downtown this time coming to Calgary - I'm glad I found Open Range! The food was amazing and was well matched with the service. The place had great atmosphere and loved the menu selection. My only issue was the lack of wine available by the glass. Definitely give this place a... More

Open range is an very good upscale rustic, earthy restaurant off grungy Edmonton Trail. The restaurant is to be commended for excellent use of as much local produce as possible, and well seasoned, well prepared food. Service was also excellent and very knowledgable. Our meal experience was comfortable, unhurried and satisfying. The Broam Lake duck was outstanding and definitely the... More

We took our out-of-town friends, who love good meat dishes, to enjoy a feast at Open Range. Besides a relaxing decor, complete with fireplace, we were seated in high back chairs, creating a very homey feel. Our waiter picked up on our "carefree" mood and enhanced the experience. We discovered a new favourite wine from their selection. The menu is... More

Went for a business supper. I am not a meat eater however there are some interesting items for all on the menu. This is a great place for a romantic dinner, a family celebration or even a business meal Prices I found were average - $37.00 for a briased bison steak which comes with potoates and veggies - the plate...

We have been in Calgary for 10 years now and have struggled to find places to take visitors..most places are to loud to hold a conversation, overpriced and serve mediocre food....but then we happened upon the wonderful Open Range. We have taken all our recent guests here for some amazing meals. Everyone of them has left delighted including us. We... More
