Ate outside on the patio on a warm sunny afternoon. The view was nice but the food was adequate. Not an overly friendly waitress but the service was good.

Have been here a few times and love the patio - usually a really nice spot for a bevy and lunch/dinner. Raining when we were here this weekend but still nice inside. The menu has a nice variety - food is always fresh and delicious. Love the burgers, including the veggie/port mushroom sandwich and the yam fries. Service is notable... More

Seemed like a local hangout. Tasty ribs and brisket sandwich but perhaps too saucy (salt and sugar overload)! Kids meals okay. Friendly service.

Depending on what you order, the food was ok. Only 1 out of the four in our group was happy with their food. The wait staff was nice and friendly and seating was comfortable. I think if you have time, it would be good to drive around and check out other resturants.

Nice place to sit outside and enjoy a meal or drink (if it's not raining). Food is good and reasonably priced. Service is helpful and friendly if a little slow at times.

We often stop here for lunch after skiing or hiking and the food is always good. The setting is lovely especially with the log fire and lovely artwork , and when the weather is good there is a large patio .Service is good and the food arrives quickly, the menu isn't to extensive but good hearty meals

Happened upon The Wood when we couldn't get into our regular place. We should have waited in line! Food was over sauced, took long time to come to table. Very underwhelming.

Travelling to Calgary at the end of a two week touring holiday that included Alaska, Vancouver, Jasper and Banff we came upon Canmore rather tired and in need of fuel, we found ourselves eating at this restaurant. It did not disappoint. The menu was extensive without being so large that you just knew everything came out of a packet and... More

Excellent dinner options and attentive wait staff. I'd go back to this eatery which is centrally located in downtown Canmore.
