Had a business meeting in northeast Calgary with two guests from out of town. They wanted to try some genuine Alberta Beef. All four of us ordered steaks and they were done to perfection. Even the guest who asked for his striploin to be cooked one minute on each side, Blue Rare, served on a cold plate. He loved it!... More

My friend wanted a good steak and I knew this was the place as I have been a few times and am never disappointed. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Atomosphere is warm and inviting. Service I'd bang on and the cocktails, what can I say. Recommend this restaurant to locals and traveller's alike. Will return again soon.

This is a great place to get a steak and some beer. Very nice layout with both a restaurant side and a bar side. Steaks were simply amazing and service was top notch.

We enjoy the casual atmosphere of the Cattle Baron and the attentiveness of the staff and friendliness of the manager. The steaks have always been done to our liking and I've noticed that if some customers are not satisfied they have no problem having their issues resolved.

Stopped off for dinner prior to boarding our flight back to England. Not disappointed but I have had better. Enjoyed the food, in particular the steak and prawns combo. Good beer and even had a cheesecake to finish off a good meal.

Casual ambiance but still with a steakhouse feel. Had a tasty Manhattan. Ordered the rib eye with soup. Butternut squash. Amazing. This soup will change your life. Absolutely amazing. The steak was also tasty, heavily seasoned, super tender. Go for the double-baked potato instead of the mashed (mashed is good, just not as good). Had the merlot which was a... More

We went to the Cattle Baron for dinner one evening and found this place very nice, with friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable staff. The waiter we had was excellent with all his recommendations. The food was all very good. Would definitely go again when in the area and am looking for a nice meal.

Good place, steak was ok. Not as amazing as it was talked up to be. Found fishbones in our Calamari, which the manager quickly took care of and got us a new plate. Service was great, definitely worth it.

After reading and hearing about Alberta AAA steak I was very keen to try out a steakhouse in Calgary. After researching Tripadvisor.com, I selected The Cattle Baron with fingers crossed. I ordered the NY Strip Loin medium rare. I was expecting to have to wait for ages, but it was only about a 20 minute wait, and boy did it... More

We enjoyed supper here on Sep 2, 16. We had not been to this restaurant in many years but remembered the quality of food from our last visits and were looking for a change from our typical dining out spots. The food was fabulous as we remembered and the service from Evan was top shelf. Evan hands down made the... More
