We ate at Cattle Baron with friends and family, including children. Good points: service was quick and friendly, and there were lots of families dining near us. You can dress up or down. The decor is a bit dated looking but it's clean and comfortable. So-so points: the food is fine but not great. One of our steaks was a bit tough, but not so much as to send it back. The steamed vegetable side dish was too plain and undercooked for my taste. The baked potato was pretty standard. Hot rice pudding, a special that day, was lukewarm. The prices were average steak house; about $20-30 an entree. Not terrible, but not memorable.

I went there on a tuesday night, the bar may seem a little bit "stiff", but the service was very nice. I probably eat the great steak ever! The 12 on. New York was perfectly cook, it's serve with fresh vegetables and a baked potatoes (with sour cream, green shallots...).

The steak, calamari and caesar salad where all excellent. Prime rib was good. Portions were quite large (I could not believe I had the smallest available cut of the prime rib).

Good but not great service.

The Filet Mignon was so good! The price of the plate was amazing too! Great food, excellent service, good value! I recommend this restaurant. It's nice, clean and there are two sections... one more lounge which was really casual and comfortable! The other section was more like a typical restaurant. Good music!

Our last night in Calgary, we had to indulge in famous Alberta beef! After reading many reviews, we selected the Cattle Baron since it was so close to our airport hotel. Service was great, very friendly staff, and of course, as expected team steaks were awesome! 3 cocktails, 1 appetizer, 1 wine, and 2 steak dinners, all for $108 before tip. We dressed nice thinking this a little bit fancy of a place, but most were dressed pretty casual. Great steak for a great price!
