Very good food, but poor service.

Like more places in Canmore is a little bit over priced, but the portions are generous and the food is good. Really enjoyed my steak sandwich and I was really impressed with the taste of my salad that came with the meal. I wish our waitress wasn't so rude...

Went in for lunch great looking restaurant nice patio. Ordered shrimp taco from the "Canmore Uncorked" menu my son found a hair in his, not overly surprising as one of the young waiters spent most of his time walking around fluffing his hair and shaking his head. The ice tea was very watered down I overheard a waitress say it... More

Selection of beers is brilliant. The lounge is great for a group of friends or boys night out. The whole place has a log cabin feel which in the winter is fantastic. In the summer take it easy on the terrace with a cold one and watch the world go by. The food was amazing - we stuck to steak,... More

I love coming here when in Canmore. My husband and I were in Canmore March 13 and it was sunny and 15 degrees! The patio at The Wood was the perfect place for a late lunch and drink.

Whenever we get a chance to eat at the woods we take it! Their food is always excellent and they have a great selection of beverages. I particularly remember going back two nights in a row when they had their butternut squash soup. It was delish! Recommend trying them out if given the chance! :)

popular outdoor patio, inside restaurant or bar setting. Food is pub food or basic meals but lots of it and good. Good desserts. As a local often go here for the views and a drink, or coffees and dessert.

We arrived around 10:30 am for breakfast on a Sunday morning, and the restaurant was relatively empty. We had family joining us, so we asked the hostess for a booster seat and a high chair. She acknowledged... The food order was quickly taken, but it took us over 30 mins to get some eggs and bacon! By the way, we... More

If it wasn't for the fact they have one of the best patios in Canmore with a great view and esthetically pleasing décor I would not return or ever recommend. I usually suck up the almost guaranteed slow service as it is a nice environment to enjoy and food is good. I will often risk taking family and friends who... More

our server didn't bring us cutlery had to get some myself. Must be understaffed because we waited for 15-20 mins for him to take out order. Beer was slightly flat and overall were not very receptive or polite. I would have to say they really dropped the ball on this one.

They seemed a little short staffed today when seating people, however once seated all was well. Beers on tap varied and tasty. They had warm blankets, heaters, and fantastic views of Rockies.
