“Good food and beer. Lots to look at.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

I don't think I could be bored visiting the plow. Food is presented on massive boards. The rack of ribs was huge! There were music videos, westerns, a big patio and basketball and hockey playoffs on. It looked like there was a big party in a banquet room too. A great place to kill a few hours and chat with the staff who all seemed to want to say hi.

“Late night bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Arrived about 9 pm and made the decision to sit in the lounge. The Plow has three distinct areas, a large private room, the opens up for tables in the restuarant, a second level, between the private room and the lounge, and the lounge. During our visit it was a cool April evening so we opted for the lounge and a seat close to the fireplace. We started off with drinks and an appy, the Avocado Shrimp Dip, highly recommended, different and very good. My wife had the chicken Quesadilla for a main, and I, the fish and chips. We both tried each others, which was easy to do as there was lots of food. I had two large pieces of fish, which was in a very nice light batter and the quesadilla was also good, lots of cheese and chicken. Service was very good before during and after our meal (thanks Heather) and three people thanked us for coming as we left the restaurant. We felt welcomed while we were there and will be back.

A little hard to get to, you can see the restaurant off McLeod Trail, but you have to go around behind the restuarnt (west on Sun Valley off McLeod Trail) to get access.

“Great Steaks and a Good Beer List!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

I was at the Plow last night for arguably the best steak I've had all year. The beef was just great. Please don't change a thing. This place has a one of the largest draught beer and bottle selection that I've seen in Calgary. I highly recommend!

Great pub food- my friends loved the lobster mac & cheese. Small selection of international beers. Friendly service and good atmosphere.
