It doesn't look like much on the outside, almost hidden as it is on busy Edmonton Trail, but oh my gosh, the food! This is a good old-fashioned, high-class, but not-stuck-on-itself steak house that features Alberta beef (top of the class) and meat from other free-range animals. Their accompaniments are tasty and great for sharing. Cocktails are from the top-notch... More

Went to Open Range last week. Didn't look like much from the outside but had a real charm and warm homey feeling inside. It was not very busy and the service was prompt. We had appetizers and entrees. Based on the reviews, my expectation that I was going to wowed. The service was good. The food was OK. We tried... More

We recently enjoyed a beautiful meal in the Open Range Restaurant. The setting was excellent and very comfortable but the quality and flavours of the food were outstanding. We would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant if you are in this part of the world!

Why did it take us so long to come here after all the great reviews? We couldn't have had a better dinner from the delicious mussel appetizer, the mains were perfection and I have to encourage you all to make Open Range your dinner choice tonight!!!

My Mom and sister-in-law and I visited Open Range back at the end of June. I've been here several times over the years and have always been pleased with the quality of the food, service and atmosphere and was confident that this would be a restaurant experience that both of these first-timers would enjoy. I couldn't have been more right... More

I made reservations here because my business client is a definite carnivore and the setting looked perfect. I found out about Open Range from a review John Gilchrist did on 'quieter' places to dine (I am so DONE with great restaurants that you have to shout at each other to have a conversation!). John, you were RIGHT ON with this... More

We first visited this restaurant several years ago and were impressed by the good range of game and other meats. This evening's dinner showed that they have maintained their standard. This evening we had bison in a couple of different ways - one was a slightly tougher cut but was still delivered tender and juicy. The restaurant appears to be... More

We return to Open Range for my husband birthday. We have been going to Open Range now for more than 5 years. This place may not be on the "trendy" list, but their menu is as interesting as many of the trendy places and for us remains a sure value. Portions are generous and we never leave feeling hungry. The... More

Delicious bison burger!! Very nice place. Friendly staff. Great service. I found it a bit expensive. We spent $100 tip included for 2 people.

So good, from start to finish. Service was excellent and food was incredibly delicious. It was quiet, as it was a Tuesday night - wish we lived closer, we'd be here all the time!
