Quiet out of the way type of place. We had a Date Night gift given to us by our son and his wife. The gift included a ride on a horse drawn sled but this was not available at the time of our visit but we were given a rain-check. The meal was good and filling but not very special.... More

Wednesdays their special is a Burger Bar. You can choose beef, bison, elk or chicken. You can order sides as well for an extra charge. We did not as we had been told the burger and condiments were plenty. The first burger is $14 and if you feel you can eat a second one, it's free! There are more than... More

My husband and I got married at Heritage Ranch on April 11th and we could not be happier with how everything went! The staff and service was phenomenonal! We had access to the space much earlier than we had booked for and everyone made sure that we were taken care of. They also allowed us to use the upstairs room... More

Stopped in here for lunch with some friends. I was surprised at how great the menu looked and was very impressed with the food. I had a smoked salmon wrap which was the special, along with the poutine. All of the food was delicious. Price was on the higher side but the quality and flavour of the meal met the... More

Went here for lunch last Friday with my husband and parents. My husband had the poutine he said it was OK, my parents both ordered the steak it was really tough, my dad could barely cut it, ordered well done and was extremely dry. I had the sliders with elk very dry, over cooked and cold, the buns were dry.... More

Very sorry to hear that. Not sure what the circumstances were that day but we definitely strive for more ourselves. Our lunches and dinners are always made and served fresh.... due to the fresh herbs that are incorporated in the plates, we have chosen not to use traditional heatlamps so it may have been due to a delay in delivery....

The atmosphere is interesting. Homey and rustic, the wood burning fireplace is a nice touch. It fits in well with the joint's ranch vibe. The staff seemed nice, but a little unpolished when it comes to fine dining. We started with the antipasto. Nice selection of meats, cheeses, pickles and bread. Pretty standard. Not bad, but I've had better at... More

For fine dining in Red Deer this is our choice. It is totally unique and while it is in the City limits - you feel like you are a million miles away in nature.
