“Good food, lovely location/view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We booked at the Iron Goat (recommended by a friend) after a day of skiing and it was great. The restaurant is located right across from the 3 sisters mountains and the view during the day is fantastic. The restaurant has huge 2-story windows in the front so everyone can have a view. We (my husband and my 2 kids-10,15) each ordered different dishes. My duck legs were delicious! My husband ordered the risotto and was very happy with his food. My daughter was the only one to order from the kids menu. She had the mac and cheese and it was pretty cheesy. It's their own recipe but fairly kid-friendly. Make sure you leave room in your tummy for dessert. They have "beaver tails" which is kind of like elephant ears (large flat fried doughnut like thing) covered with whipped cream, fruit and sugar/cinnamon. Very yummy! The servings were decent and our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Will definitely go back!

“Great views and design....food is just o.k.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This restaurant has amazing views of the mountains and has a stunning interior/exterios design......food is alright, but not spectacular! They need more selection!
Worth a visit for sure.....especially in the summer on the patio!!

“Beautiful pub/restaurant, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

The atmosphere at the Iron Goat is why we go back, not the food. Their burger is below average and the pizzas are just ok. Their non-standard fare seems to be better. I enjoyed the game meatloaf. Had the Kobe Oscar burger and found it very rich with sauce rather than fresh lobster and crab.

“Best Pub In Canmore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Yes this is the best pub in Canmore with a fantastic selection of beers and wines and the food is good with a variety of items changing monthly. Mike the GM is the original chef and knows his clients. Great spot for weddings too.

“Dinner with a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We arrived on an early evening after some skiing for dinner for four. The restaurant was cosy and the staff welcoming. We sat in the main room with fine views of the Rockies!

Our young family (children 8 and 2 years) were catered for and looked after. The server was extremely helpful. The two adults enjoyed a delicious meal - burgers and pasta and the children had pizza and mini burgers. The children's portions were HUGE! The children's desserts were delicious! They had beaver tails with cream and berries. Irresistible!

This is a really nice restaurant for the Rockies. One of the loveliest places we have been to in a long time.
