Well, that was a mistake... Upon entering, we were "greeted" by an employee who looked askance at us whilst walking by, saying she would be "back in just a minute". Five minutes later we were still standing in the doorway like idiots, along with another group of people who had also blundered into this place. After this, I went and... More

The wood has always been famous by the locals for its wings. Wing night on Monday night is up there with one of the best wing nights in the Bow valley. We have tried two different burgers and the beef dip here and they quite frankly are below average. Burnt, small portions, old rubbish salads, watch out! I would not... More

The food here is delicious! I highly recommend the artichoke crab dip! The green salad is spicy with lots of onions, but the candied pecans balance it out nicely. My husband had the ribs and said he could tell they were cooked well, even though he was only mildly thrilled by the flavour of the sauce. He loved the soup... More

We came here on a Saturday night and even though there was no line up to get in, we waited 5 minutes to be seated. That should have been our first clue of what was in store for us. It took 45 minutes for our food to arrive and I got my starter at the same time as the entree.... More

Its good, the food is good, the service is never excellent. the place is always very busy and you always have to wait, sometimes for longer than what should be normal, its almost like they don't have enough staff to keep up with the volume, which is pretty common in a place like Canmore. What keeps me coming back is... More

I was expecting better food and service. No Consistency. Start with the drinks. The same drink was served with different ingredients each time. I ordered soup which I end up having a purée and my steak was dry. Table next to us was complaining food being late. Seemed like they had less staff to serve. I don't recommend to anyone... More

We were touring a German exchange student through parts of Albert and B.C. and included Canmore in that trip (a wise choice). When looking for a restaruant for lunch, we were intriqued by the welcoming patio of the Wood Restaurant and there we went. The food was "top notch" and the service matched it. The price was reasonable. We will... More

Good basic lunch in a nice atmosphere. Nice lunch specials.With several inches of snow we couldn't travel far and this was one of the nicer and upscale spots we found in the business district.
