Huge portions, good comfort food

Unbeknownst to me and my fellow diners, the Bear and Kilt is known for it's bear-sized portions! It's location in the basement was very appealing on a 30+ day, and the cellar-like atmosphere is very pub-esque. The menu is a standard pub fare menu but we all enjoyed what we ordered, and it was... read more

Sign said Burger, Fries, & a Pint for $10.00. I looked around and then there it was, downstairs. Only 3 tables filled so I was becoming abit leery. We finally where seated and this was a pub for sure with dart boards, etc. and the smell of beer. So we all got the specials and WOW! At $10 this deal... More

I go here all the time and I am never disappointed. The food is excellent, the services is excellent and it's all priced very reasonably! Shepards pie is amazing as is the steak sandwich, but don't order your main course until you've tried there appetizer bear bangers, they will bring you too heaven and back! I recommend this place 100%

I learned that this is a typical hang-out of Calgarians working in downtown. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with billiard tables, TVs, game console.. I am not a fond of the smoke scent HOWEVER the food really taste awesome, kinda like home cooked fresh from the stove and oven. The servings are generous and really a great value for the... More

I met a colleague of mine there for lunch today. The Octoberfest Menu was presented to us and the specials were difficult, but we both chose the sausage platter. Very quiet atmosphere for lunch, great food, and mediocre service, but I am definitely going back for seconds. Great pub if you need something a little different and unique.

We were downtown for an event and had some time to kill. 5 of us looking for food and drinks. Pubs are always comfort food. Excellent food for a good price. Arriving for happy hour does not hurt. Atmosphere is a typical pub. It was relaxing, not too loud. Service was good, did I mention the food was great and... More

You could completely walk right by this place as it is tucked away on Stephen Avenue, but it is a kind of hidden gem. Great food, great service and reasonably priced. This is one of my favorite places to grab some pub food for lunch. Not pretentious, and definitely a breath of fresh air in an area of downtown Calgary... More
