Went in to have a pint in the late afternoon, was lightly grunted at by the bartender as I sat at the bar. I sat there for ten minutes and watched her walk past me time after time as she went in and out of the bar without once taking my order or even dropping off a menu, after ten... More

A good restaurant with good family dining, good selection, and close to the shopping. Be prepared to get there early since it tends to fill up quickly around meal time

Although the tables are close together and it felt a bit crowded at first, the great service and good food are worth a bit of coziness.

However, upon my fourth trip here I decided after a long day of snowboarding with some friends to hit up the pub in the basement. This was a big mistake. The service... More

Good basic bar to come hang out, have some appetizers, and throw back beers. Nice place, clean and cozy. Would return again.

Upon check-in the front desk girl was very snippy with me when i asked a question about the room locations. Room was adequate i suppose, no exhaust fan in the bathroom and both faucets were dripping the entire time. When ten of us went to get food at lunch time at the pub in the hotel it was supposed to...

I ordered a green salad for lunch and it was 9.99. Coffee was 3.50. They have a variety of burgers but they are expensive.

Great comfy casual atmosphere with friendly staff. Food is from the same menu as Wildfire Grill. The steak sandwich cooked just right. Nachos portion was huge. There are pool tables and TV right at the bar. Nice to eat and watch highlights of Stampede on the Saturday night we visited. Currently they are only open Friday and Saturday.

Nice atmosphere but wish they had the fireplace going. Lodge bar feel with live a caustics folky music. Very nice place to sit and relax on a Friday evening.
