We were visiting Saskatoon and my Dad and his lady friend insisted on takling my spouse and I out to the Granary. We had not dined here for some three years so we were looking forward to a nice meal in this restaurant decorated with old licence plates and many nostalgic items from the prairie life in Saskatchewan; this is probably why my 87-year-old father likes it so much! We were quickly seated and our server was promptly at our table for drink orders and the specials. We had a variety of drinks and wine, and an appetizer-size loaf of sourdough bread. Our entrées followed soon after. They were piping hot (a common complaint of mine in restaurants is food served lukewarm or cold - no reason for this) and very tasty. There was a generous amount of prime rib and my Dad's steak was melt-in-your-mouth excellent. My spouse and I had panko-breaded crab-stuffed chicken with potatoes and mixed vegetables. Although well prepared and to-die-for tasty, the chicken portions were downright skimpy; I could have eaten threee of them! Our meal proceeded well nevertheless. When my spouse and I had finished our entrées, another server cleared our plates and went to remove my Dad's plate, even though it weas obvious he was only half finished; he was quite perturbed at this, and rightly so - she should have asked. Desserts followed (including saskatoon berry pie - a favourite that my late mother used to make), and they were equally enjoyable. All in all this was a great dining experience, and were it not for the small chicken portions and the server's faux pas in trying to remove a plate prematurely, I would have given this meal an Excellent rating. If you are in Saskatoon, please give this restaurant a try.
