We stopped in at The Wood for a late breakfast on a Thursday morning in August. We were happy that we were seated right away. The food was amazing; the Eggs Benedict a must try! We enjoyed the quiet, casual dining room. Our server was friendly and efficient. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Canmore.

Great meal, a few mix ups with tables but no big deal. Loved the yam fries, addictive! Really enjoyed sitting out on the patio with my girlfriend after a morning of fun shopping.

We had dinner here on a Tuesday evening with a group of four, we were seated immediately on the patio, it started to sprinkle and we thought it might rain so we asked to be moved inside. The staff moved us and our drinks with no problem. After inside we ordered our meals, BBQ brisket sandwich, salmon, burger and club.... More

I came here for a late lunch. we had t wait a few minutes to be seated despite the place being two-thirds empty, but they did have cold glasses of water on our table by the time we got there. The patio area is very nice, on the corner of two streets. The food was very good. I had baked... More

Had a short wait for a patio table but the food, beer and service were all good at a good price. Recommended

Traveling here on a holiday Monday, Canmore was already hectic. The wood openly told us that upon seating it would take 50 minutes to receive our food, which was fine. Very slow to be greeted. The server was okay, didn't seem overly engaged with us. The good itself was fine, nothing to write home about. If travelling in Canmore, you... More

but not incredible - there are nicer places to eat in Canmore. The restaurant itself is nice, although we sat inside the patio did look very nice with great views. Food was just ok - although I asked for half ribs I was given and charged for full ribs, i didn't complain as I did eat them all - but... More

There was a long wait for tables inside, so we decided to be a little cooler and eat on the patio. It was very good food and UNBELIEVABLE views. A bit pricey but worth the view.
