Great portions, good service

We arrived about 10 minutes before the restaurant's closing time, but that didn't matter. We had good service and the food was very good. Huge servings. Word to the wise - order a half-size serving of the 3 flapjack plate. Reuben was excellent too. Enjoy!

The atmosphere outside of WHIFS is kind of unsuspecting, almost the way truck stop diners can appear. Inside you can tell it has been many years in the making. There is a train that runs on a track near the ceiling. Little figurines and action heroes are aboard (dinosaurs included of course) and it gives the place a fun-feel. We... More

We went with friends for breakfast. A buffet was offered, but we selected from the menu. The food was tasty, abundant, and hot. We didn't have to wait long for coffee refills. The decor is rustic country. Very cozy, very clean. A window seat offers views of the badland hills beyond the small highway. The staff was helpful and friendly.... More

This is a place we enjoy going whenever we are in Drumheller. To look at it from the outside you think should I go in? Yes you should!!!! It is so homey inside and the food is very good especially the flapjacks. Prices are reasonable.Love the old style train going around the ceiling. At times when we have gone there,there... More

I have come here quite a few times over the years. Come early as they are busy, busy. This isn't the fanciest restaurant ever but the food and service have always been above par. I would come here everyday if I were closer.

My husband and I went mid morning and this place was hopping. There was a line up at the door, which was quickly seated. Service was perfect and very friendly, even in rush hour. The big breakfast my husband had was awesome. I had a wonderful fluffy big omelette. We ran out of vacation time, or we would have returned.

I had the pleasure of enjoying a breakfast at Whif's this morning. I had the cottage cheese crepes with mixed fruit and it was delicious. The waitress was very friendly and service was also very good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a good breakfast at a great price.

My family and I went there for lunch and sadly we didn't have a good experience. The atmosphere seemed fun for the kids with a little train running on the ceiling of the restaurant with small action figures of the hulk etc riding. The room had uncomfortable chairs and sticky tables. The waitress was nice and so was as the... More
