Not for those in a hurry!

Despite the mixed reviews I gave it a shot. It took quite a while for my server to even come by and longer to get my drink. Food also took an incredibly long time, I think perhaps my order was forgotten even. The server was very nice and i overhead the server chatting with multiple tables... read more

Service was amazing and food was very quick considering it was a Saturday night. We were both already very hungry by the time we decided to find a restaurant to eat at. We went to a couple other restaurants and they were so busy they didn't even notice us standing there for 10 minutes. The server was really quick and... More

It was a lovely evening for outside supper and we spotted a table at this restaurant thinking how lucky we were. Sadly, the greeter seemed disinterested, something my wife and I each noticed. The server seemed to share this approach (we compared notes) and when our food came it was very disappointing. I have only once complained about food in... More

My son and I ate breakfast here. Twice. The food is good and the portions are filling. It was relatively quiet when we visited- not many patrons but I don't think this reflects on the restaurant's quality. It may just have been early. Based on our experience, Canmore doesn't have many establishments downtown where you can get a full breakfast,... More

We were hungry, it looked nice, but it was pretty bad. They got our order wrong and they tried to charge us for a side dish that should have been included with the meal. As a Midwesterner I found the bbq beef to be unacceptable. I am sure it deserves the low ranking it has received. I wish we had... More

Passing through after visiting Lake Louise and Banff and could not get into our first or second choice of restaurant. Ended up here due to least amount of wait time within walking distance from where we parked. Service was good, but food average and not very hot.

Food is good, but not excellent. Service is good, but place is busy so it is not a quick in, quick out option. Family friendly, but more a hip drinking restaurant than family calm. We sat outside and enjoyed the awesome Canmore summer weather. I would eat there again.

This restaurant has good food. The servers are friendly. When visiting this time around, we seen an individual with a wheel chair needing to use the washroom and unfortunately the washrooms are downstairs. I didn't see anyone from the restaurant going to assist him down the stairs, a couple of the men at the table next to us went and... More

Great atmosphere both inside and outside. Sat in the lounge and enjoyed 2 beers we had not had before. Salmon salad with a light dressing was a perfect fit for my appetite and my husband ordered a sirloin. He said the steak was nicely cooked,but that it came out a bit cool. It was busy, so perhaps the plates sat... More
