Poor Service

We had a group of four come to this restaurant for dinner, there was a group of two people ahead of us waiting and we were told we had a 15 minute wait. Another group of two showed up who happened to be friends with the server working, the server brought the 2 into the bar and then seated them... read more

We came in to wind down on our last night in Canmore and received a wonderful meal with terrific service. The staff were very accommodating and outgoing. We will return if the opportunity presents itself.

We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning and it was pretty dead. Service was extremely slow despite the lack of customers. The food was decent, the english muffin in the Eggs Benedict was hard as a rock and the fruit was disappointingly not fresh cut.

I recently went here while on a girls weekend in Canmore. Had heard good things but it did not live up to the hype. My food was undercooked and sending it back to the kitchen resulted in only slightly warmer undercooked food. The drink I ordered from the bar was not good and I did not drink it but was... More

Had the smk meat sandwich special the other day and it was fantastic. My guest had the Roselinne pasta dish which looked great and I was told it had a lot of flavour. NIce balance of cream & tomato sauce over rolled pasta that is stuffed with capicola ham, provolone, & pesto. Both the server and bartender made an effort... More

Don't be put off by the "average food" comment. Average doesn't mean bad. Some things on the menu are great, like the dry rib app, some are just like you'd get at any other eatery. But you can't beat the patio to sit out in the summer and have a meal and a pint. I haven't tried them myself but... More

Have had some of the best wings I've ever had here... sauced and then baked until just the right degree of crispness in a hot oven. Delicious! But have also had some of the most average wings imaginable here... poor consistency. Haven't had the courage to try much else. The great wings came with friendly and attentive service. The lousy...

Thanks for sharing your recent experiences at The Wood. We have used the same recipe for our chicken wings and the same product spec for the past 6 years. We pride ourselves on having great wings all the time, and it seems others think so too as we have been voted "Best Wings in Canmore" the past 5 years by... More

We visited early on a Monday of the family daylong weekend. We were seated immediately, but surprised to see that they had no breakfast menu. We waited 30 minutes for our appetizer to arrive - thank goodness it was well worth the wait! We had the crab and cheese spread dip. For meal we shared the steak sandwich with soup... More
