We have been living down the street from Heritage Ranch for almost 9 years and we always said that "we should go to the restaurant". So finally, I made reservations for our anniversary. Because we are within walking distance, we were comfortable ordering wine with dinner. We arrived shortly before our reservation time of 6:30 pm on a Friday night.... More

Maybe we chose an "off night" to celebrate a special occasion, but we left feeling a bit underwhelmed. When one is charged a higher price, one expects the whole package. While the location was beautiful and the food was gourmet and delicious, the service and atmosphere lacked finesse and did not warrant full marks. We made a reservation by texting... More

Thanks again for the feedback. I responded on our Heritage Ranch TripAdvisor but thought I'd catch you here too. Please contact me through our Heritage Ranch website. You were correct, it was a very busy weekend with 4 major events so it is certainly possible we dropped the ball. Would love to have you back... Cheers Joel More

This restaurant can also be found reviewed under Heritage Ranch (HR) which at the time of this writing is #3 out of Red Deer's restaurants and I fully understand why. This entire property with horseback riding, wagon & sleigh rides, etc.is owned by the City Of Red Deer and the Westlake Grille is the restaurant.. It would be an excellent... More

This restaurant is part of the Heritage Ranch complex and park. It is an easy stop for lunch or dinner if travelling on the Queen Elizabeth Highway between Edmonton and Calgary. The menu is diverse but does highlight elk, Alberta beef. I had the hamburger. It was good but a bit over dressed. My friend had the mushroom soup which... More

I always enjoyed going to Westlake with friends in the past. However the last few time I went to the Restaurant the service was horrible. Every time I go there there are different servers. I am not sure but it seems the owner can not keep his staff, and when I really like a waitress the next time I go... More

Came to the Westlake Grill for the first time, very nice location and surroundings. Antipasto appetizer was excellent, but for dinner I had to send my steak back twice as it was not cooked correctly either time. As well the two friends with me had their steaks over cooked, but they didn't say anything. When we were leaving, the manager... More

Again, I do apologize that we did not exceed your expectations as that is always our goal. Since your email we have made a concentrated effort in execution and delivery of our Ribeye Steak Dinner. Cheers Joel More

What a nice little spot especially for Red Deer. Very easy to get to and tucked away within the city. Very simple decor but the food is excellent and offered lots of organic and gluten free choices. Hope they will offer gluten free beer soon and also bottled mineral water. But seems they are starting out with low overhead and... More

Okay....I'll admit I'm not a big fan of Beef....but sometimes a grilled steak or A-1 cut of beef can be sublime if grilled to perfection. A 'Rare' treat. And, where else in Canada would you expect to find the best Beef? Alberta....Bingo ! I took my wife and Australian friend and steered them to Westgate expecting some grilled Beef to... More

We came here with friends on a Sunday afternoon for a late brunch. The buffet had a wide variety of very tasty food. The food is full of flavor, service was great and the atmosphere is rustic ranch style, as one would expect! There is a wood burning fireplace which probably makes a winter visit very welcoming. We will certainly... More

After a less than spectacular first visit to Westlake, I had put up a review here on tripadvisor. The Owner commented on my review, apologized and suggested that we try visiting again. It's not everyday you see the owner comment or even care that people had a less than great experience at their establishment. We decided to give it an... More
