“It's now closed”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Dakota is now closed. Not sure if it's being renovated or will even open again under the same name. Hopefully the big blue dumpster outside gets moved soon.

“Really not sure why anybody would go here...”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

There's not a lot to say about this one. The food is completely average, the price to quality ratio is grim and the place always smells pretty bad.

It's not the worst place to go to if it's all you can find but I can't imagine choosing to go here over the many other nearby options.

“Cheap Food with an Expenisve Tag”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food was cheap and very poorly presented. You'd get better food, and presentation, in a fast food joint — no joke. On top of that the food was tasteless. And the worst part was the bill. I don't mind to pay for good food, but this was nowhere near good food. This restaurant goes to show it’s best to cook at home.

“Grasshopper”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Our first night in Calgary and we came accross this Bar. Great outside area, but empty inside even for 8.00pm on a friday. Staff were happy to share a joke (Grasshopper Beer was only made from 40% grasshopper legs!), and the food order came reasonably quickly. It had a sports bar feel, but even though the Olympics was available, they mainly showed Baseball (rounders for us Brits!). Price was ok and place clean, but lacked atmosphere inside.
