We travel to Canmore often and this place always is busy. I am just not sure why. The service is adequate, the menu is diverse but there is just nothing special about the food. I had the beef brisket sandwich. The meat was smoked and tasty, but there wasn't a lot of it and for $ 16.00 for a smoked... More

Like most places in Canmore, over priced for what you get. The place was empty the night we were there. The service was lackadaisical and inconsistent, Waitress got several things wrong with our order. We both tried the Tuesday steak dinner special for $10. It was ok, not great. Salad had too much dressing. Fries were good, but the cheese... More

A big patio, nice decor inside and daily drink specials. This is the perfect place to stop for lunch after checking out of your Banff hotel and continuing east on your journey. Good portion sized and fair enough prices for Banff/Canmore.

The ambience was great. We sat by the gas fireplace, which was pleasant. The house salad was excellent but my hamburger was overcooked and overseasoned.

We ate dinner here . There was a short wait so we walked in town for 10 minutes. When we went back they seated us right away. I had the grilled veggie burger which was good and the side salad was very good. Husband had a burger and fries and said it was ok. The service was good. They have... More

The location of this restaurant in the town of Canmore cant be beat. There is a great outdoor patio where you can eat or just have a drink and people watch. The portions are generous and the food is good.

We were starting to wonder if we were going to get in as they couldn't find our reservation but it was found the hostess did a good job saving the day, as there was a long line up to get in. Our waitress was really nice and had a great sense of humor. The food was really good and there... More

I have eaten at The Wood a number of times over the years and simply cannot believe some of the negative reviews. I chalk them up to generation that demands that everything be instant and that the serving staff be superwomen. The serving staff have told me that kitchen at the Wood can really only supply proper meals to the... More

Very good service, wide choice and good to eat so no complaints. Staff pleasant and attentive and whilst food took maybe 15 - 20 minutes to arrive we accepted that as of course cooked to order
