I had to give this place 5 stars because 11 members of my family went for Father's Day Brunch; they put together a big table for us on the patio, and every single person enjoyed their food and had a good experience. In a group that size, it is unusual if *no one* has a complaint about the food or... More

This restaurant was a gem we found by chance on the way. Usually I don't expect much from roadside places but this was an awesome start to our trip. We had left Edmonton at 4AM and were very hungry by lunchtime when we found this. Portions are generous and price is low comparably. Good selection of fresh made food. Polite... More

Good food, neat atmosphere. Service wasn't overly friendly, but was quick and got the job done. I would stop there again. Portion sizes were large.

We have eaten here many times and have always had good experiences whether its for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food is good and there are quite a few menu options to choose from. The service is quick and friendly and the setting, being inside a large log house, is nice. Lots of parking and lots of tables and in... More

We had reservations for 4 for lunch. We along with 3 other groups were kept waiting 15 to 20 minutes. Waitresses were busy visiting and texting and ignoring customers. There were only 6 tables in use. No apology by the staff for the wait time. When our meal finally came, finally, the waitress neglected to bring syrup for my husband's... More

We always enjoy our family dinners at the Pioneer House. Besides having a great menu they also have a very good gluten free menu. Very nice atmosphere.

Nice building with an ancient long bar, which is of historical significance. Good service. Average quality food, with an emphasis on carbs. quite cramped and not all that comfortable. Mexican theme nights are quite enjoyable
