Friendliest A&W I have ever been to! Good quality and great hours. Behind the store is one of the nicest views in Canmore!

We had heard that A & W had new breakfast items. We stayed the previous night in Banff and wanted a quick breakfast on the way back to Calgary. The place was very busy, and it was a Thursday morning and full of senior citizens so I'm assuming that this is normal. There were only two employees serving people and... More

Don't,just don't go there. Waited five minutes for a coffee at ten in the morning. Are you kidding me. How could you not maintain a coffee supply at that time of day. I certainly will not return. A lack of desire, and most indifferent attitude describes this place. Normally, I wouldn't care and go to Timmys for a 2x2. Just... More

After driving 10 hours it's nice to take a break in Canmore and everyone loves A&W, however my experience at the Canmore location was shocking. First, a staff member was sweeping disgusting dirt around the cash register area and asking customers to get out of his way so he could clean.... Maybe wait until the store is closed to do... More

I think this place has changed hands recently.... While the food is assembled well, the burger was just warm. The worst part for me was the manager arguing the use of A&W coupons that where in date and completely within the terms. Just rude. Tables were not being cleaned and the toilets grim.... On the way down, used to be... More

We visited Canmore over the Christmas Holidays and while in a hurry to grab something quick and be on our way to the ski hill, we stopped here. The food was what you would expect from small town fast food. Why I give it a one star as compared to say a 3 star, was the fact that, to start... More

Didn't have time to sit down for lunch before an appointment so headed to the A&W. Interesting access since there is no direct turn. Grabbed a childs meal and had to go back to wait for the sauce that had been forgotten. Root beer is a staple and we laughed that we had to look hard for the sign that... More

We are from the lower 48, so enjoyed the little basket our sweet potato fries came in and the metal tray. There wasn't a large selection, but the food was fresh and tasty.

I caught salmonella poisoning here when I ate breakfast, scrambled eggs, bacon and coffee, I have been seriously ill ever since then, I would advise everyone to stay away from this place for breakfasts!
