A decent place to grab lunch

The wood has pretty good food. The salmon burger was nice. The view is also beautiful and it's pretty centrally located. All in all, not amazing, but good food, good atmosphere.

We enjoyed two lunches here. The log and wood decor was great and the service was excellent. Wish that we had time to try a dinner.

We stopped in for a couple of drinks and watched the hockey game. We were seating at the bar and the person working the bar was great. Very attentive and drinks were made to order, even when the place was packed! Would come back, did not have the chance to try the food but it did look a bit pricey.

Stopped by for a drink in the bar prior to an evening event. The staff were so incredibly rude we left and went elsewhere. Will never return!

Let's start off by saying that the food was very tasty. We all really enjoyed our meals. Unfortunately the service was poor. The host wasn't friendly. She seemed very bored and didn't care to even be there. Our server Paul started off being very friendly as he greeted us. After our food was ordered, our waters were never refilled. We... More

Tried this place again over the festive period as others had too long a line. The menu is ok, service a little slow as always seems a bit understaffed and the food is really average and really not that cheap. Rob

We go to this restaurant often when in Canmore but find the servers are often stressed out as maybe short staffed? Not sure. Food is usually pretty good. Nice atmosphere with a log cabin look so fits in nice with the mountain view!

We visited on Jan.15 for supper. The restaurant was less than half full yet service was slow. Waitress came back to ask my wife what type of potato she ordered and the plate still came out with the wrong ones. This was corrected but with no comp. Food was average. Too many other restaurants nearby to bother going back.

After a day of cross country skiing we stopped into The Wood Restaurant for a bite to eat. The cabin like atmosphere was nice with nice tables and comfortable seats. The service was good and was able to help with different suggestions and options. The Yam fries were amazing (worth trying) and the salads were also great. We had the... More
