“Best steak we've ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Don't be put off by the run down exterior of the restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious and fitting of a top class locale. Great service too.

“Gotta love the Longview Steakhouse...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Whenever we have something to celebrate we head out to the Longview Steakhouse and have done so for the past 6 years...The food is truly amazing and the service wonderful. We probably tried everything on their menu by now and have not eaten better anywhere else. It is a small intimate and very relaxing atmosphere with great Service by people who care. Try it! You will not be disappointed...call for reservations or you may be out of luck...

“Best Steak Ever?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

I hate to put this out there just in case I run into another good steak, but I think I have to say that this place has the best steak I have ever had. The staff is great and makes you feel like you are eating at home. The portions size are perfect for the price. This is fine dining in small town atmosphere. The restaurant is very cozy and busy. I would suggest reservations or you are not going to get in. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection. I would recommend this place to anyone in the Calgary area.

“As always Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Reservations Required. Small intimate restaurant with fabulous food and great service. It will surprise you. PS. Don`t tell anyone else, or you may not get a reservation again.! They are that busy.

“They do EVERYTHING right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

A family-run business about an hour south of Calgary in the heart of real ranch-country with real cattle-drives and real cowboys lies this little non-descript steakhouse. They are family-run with father and one son waiting tables and another son and daughter working in the kitchen. They serve every one of the 45 seats with far more precision and quality than similar-sized restaurants with bloated staffs. Service, REAL service, is the first thing you notice about the Longview Steakhouse.

The second thing you notice is the incredible precision of the execution of their menu. We started with Fresh Scallops in Sambuca Creme. Perfect. Then came the Spicy Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup. Perfect again. Left us wanting more. Then came the specialty of the house: 10 oz Rib Steak in Red Wine Jus with Steamed Shrimp in Hollandaise (served with roasted potatoes, parsnips, green beans and carrots). Perfectly seasoned. Perfectly rested. Perfect medium. For dessert, Bread Pudding in Caramel Sauce with Vanilla Ice Cream.

They are fast and efficient too. Our total meal took just under an hour and a half. Not once did a waiter walk by our table without checking to see if we needed anything. Service. Service. Service.

This place is full every night. You will need a reservation.
