A nice surprise

I had been before and found it to be overpriced and small portions but it has changed management since and I was pleasantly surprised! Our food tasted great, our server was very nice and it wasn't as expensive as I had been prepared to pay!

I went with my four sisters on a "sisters' weekend" to Lethbridge where we were born and raised, but none of us live there anymore. The water tower was such a landmark growing up there. I even remember when it was built. It was made into a restaurant so we had to eat there. We weren't sorry. We sat on... More

Thank you for your comments. It is an unfortunate situation for all of us that the previous owners took money for gift certificates and then went bankrupt. If the certificates were purchased at Costco, Costco is providing refunds. If they were purchased directly at the water tower we do have complaints filed against the previous owners with the Lethbridge Police... More

The view is great, the food is good, the service is good, but it is very expensive. Can not afford to eat there on a pensioner's income, so we don't.
