Tried this place on a recommendation. The building is quaint - located on a nice olde town street (I really enjoy exploring the old fashioned type small town feel as this rarely exists in the big cities anymore); there is street parking and parking behind. We tried the penne pasta, bison meatloaf and salmon special. The food - I have... More

Beautiful building and a lot of money has been spent on it and the fixtures. Hubby & I managed to score a seat outside which is hidden from the footpath by shrubbery. As an avid "watch the world go by" person I would have liked a view of the world but despite that it lovely el fresco dining. Food was... More

It is such a beautiful building and right in the center of town. I don't think it would survive without the tourists. Locals sure don't eat there anymore. I remember hearing that there were new owners and it had gone downhill but that was I while ago and I figured they would have worked things out by now. Ummmmm nope.... More

This is such a great location. I don't know what's happened of late. I went yesterday at noon to meet a friend. She did not show so I stayed and, since no one had been around to check on me when I'd been sitting there for 10 minutes, I got up out of my table and let the staff know... More

This lovely little restaurant in downtown Okotoks is housed in a former Gothic Revival Church. Much of the architecture has been preserved, from the original floors to the soaring celiling. My teenage daughter and I shared lunch here. The menu boasts fresh, locally-sourced food. Lots of tasty sandwich and salad combinations. The selections offered made it difficult to choose as...

We came here on a Friday night to celebrate a family event and enjoyed our first time here although a couple of our group had been here before. The renovated church had a pleasant, funky atmosphere. They put our group of ten near the entrance in a small cozy area that suited us. We could hear everyone around the table... More

Heartland has always been a family favorite but the last two visits have been a disappointment. The menu has changed and been downsized.... taking a few favorites with it. The service is lackluster and food not nearly as good as it used to be.

I loved the flavors and selection found on the menu. The atmosphere is quaint and inviting. I find it is usually busy and service is fairly quick considering. A tad pricey so this is a once in a while treat for me.

Thank Mandy M
