This was our third visit to The Wood. The outdoor seating downtown on a beautiful sunny evening was the definite plus. The food was average but at least consistent. Staff was courteous and friendly .

We ate here several times on our vacation and never had a bad meal. We tried the ribs, shrimp tacos, burgers, chicken sandwich, salmon, chicken ceasar salad and my son had the pizza and the chicken tenders. All were very tasty and the portions were decent. The hostess was RUDE as all get out - but the waitstaff was OUTSTANDING... More

Sat on the patio for dinner. The steak and fries were delicious!! My friends had burgers that were great as well. Great location and view of the mountains. The service was awesome as well!

We had the steak special and lobster mac n cheese. The lobster mac n cheese could have stood more sauce. The flavor was good though. The steak was not a very good cut. The service was friendly. There was rain so we could not utalize the good sized deck.

We called in for an early dinner and both enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The service, the seating, the wine and most importantly our meals. You couldn't fault this place

We waited about 4mins to be seated on a Friday night! Pleasantly surprised since the Wood came highly recommended. The grilled veggie sandwich was mouthwatering and the fries were delicious! I can't remember the exact name of the craft beer but it was polished with hint of peach flavor. I had to have two, so tasty with my meal and... More

Looks like a nice bar, but allows children in. At least for lunch. Sat inside away from the hot outdoors. Had a good variety in their drink menu. Food was quite good. Servers were friendly and did not neglect our table.

Ordinary menu that tries to throw in a few different things but our entries were nothing special and basically tasteless. It isn't some place I need to try again as I am sure Canmore has better to offer. That's the fun of vacation, if you don't like one, then try try again!

It was definitely a nice view to enjoy when you're eating on the balcony but I think they might need another full time server working. Our server was alright but just took a long time in-between visits. I had the lobster Mac and cheese and it was ok. I did enjoy the piece of bacon on top though. For how... More

Went in just before 10 the other night for 1 drink and an appetizer. I honestly can't tell you how the food was as we didn't even get to that point. We were completely ignored by both the servers working there and they walked past us multiple times and never even acknowledged us when we walked in. After waiting for... More
