“An excellent original choice. ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I travel and eat out a lot, a lot too much, and it is very difficult to stand out enough to get me to write a review, but this place earned it. Very original menu, a lot of stuff you will not see anywhere else, eight of us ate there, and everyone was raving about the unique flavors and that it was cooked just right. I ordered duck wings as an appetizer, wow! Everyone's appetizers were awesome. My meal was lamb shank with wild mushroom risotta. Wow! The gal beside me had ribeye with wild mushrooms and the best mashed potatoes ever. The ribs were awesome too.

A good upscale pub atmosphere. The music is there but as background, conversation comes easy. Lighting and rundle rock / woodgrain give it classy atmosphere.

Very wonderful experience! The duck risotto was amazing! I'm honesty surprised this restaurant is not ranked higher. The service was fast and excellent,

“Our favorite in Canmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Quality consistently great, menu ha something for everyone and every pocket. The view are stunning, the staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable. We usually go as a couple, but often send friends or bring family. Never heard a complaint.

“Helpful staff but very average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Ordered a burger which was small and cooked so much that it was tasteless. Salad was good. Great view and patio looked like an amazing place to have dinner on in the summer.

“Good food, good venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Walked in on a Saturday evening and it was buzzing with people and Christmas parties. We sat at the bar and got a table after 15 minutes. Good service, good food and good prices. The live acoustic music was a bonus. I hope the management keeps him there as he is a major draw in my books. Easy listening music.

Don't miss out on this one!
