Great food, ambience, wonderful menu, wine list. Every dish we ordered was outstanding. There is only one reason I don't give it 5 stars, the servers didn't smile much. I didn't know if they were upset for something or that was their usual demeanor.

Wonderful evening, interesting decor, terrific food. Served by Don who was helpful, charming, informed regarding the food and able to offer helpful advice, on wines in particular. Roast beef was amazing as was the Arctic Char, elk and bison. They also have a lounge and TV. We will definitely be back.

I had a business dinner with two colleagues and we all found our meals to be excellent. The steak, the lamb and artic char were all very good. The service was prompt, polite and professional. The ambience of the restaurant was very good. There is parking available at the back of the restaurant, but if it is a busy evening,... More

We decided to try Open Range on a Thursday night, knowing what a great meal we had at Big Fish (next door - I'm not sure if they are related or not). We made a reservation through Open Table, but the restaurant was not full when we arrived at 7:15. Dinner was one of the best meals I've had in... More

Upon arrival we were happy to see although the exterior is a bit shabby the interior was warm and inviting. Too bad the staff weren't! See saw! We were seated but then had to wait over 25 mins for a drink! I do suggest trying one of their whiskey cocktails as both ours were delicious especially since we waited so... More

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
