We ate in and had take out from here as well. The food was tasty and served piping hot. The menu has something for everyone, from fish and burgers to chicken and steak. The breakfast menu is varied and accommodates children. They brew Starbucks which is a favourite!

We arrived, seated ourselves, there were a minimum of 5 waitresses on, and in a period of at least 1 1/2 hours, not one of them smiled even once. They all looked like they had been on shift all day and were waiting to go home. The food was mediocre at best. I ordered a Canadian Pizza, the sauce was... More

The bar is very friendly- a tad expensive. The decor is good, furniture great, friendly bar staff, great food. HOWEVER went to the bar to check out the World Series- all five TV's on football- Sask vs Cgy. I know Sask supports the Riders but they wouldn't give one TV to baseball. I went to my room, watched TV. Disappointed... More

Mark, I appreciate you sharing your comments about your visit to the Knotted Thistle Pub. As someone who isn’t an avid Football fan either, I can understand your disappointment when all of the TV’s in the pub were playing the CFL game this past Friday.

We had booked a room at the hotel attached to the Knotted Thistle several times and finally decided to stop in. Were tired from travel and surprised at our visit to the Knotted Thistle.

Came here for an early evening meal. The pub had been recommended to us so there was four of us in the party. It was fairly quiet and we were served straight away by most pleasent waitress. All of our meals were hot and tasty. I think we would go here again if the opportunity arose. No complaints.

I looked this place up prior to driving through, wanted a good Irish pub. Food was OK, we had the fish & chips, the batter was good, but the fish was very fishy. The meal came with hand cut fries and coleslaw, both were good. Not sure what the city has to offer, but this place was nice and reasonably-priced.
