“Fabulous meal, fabulous service, terrible gift card policy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Tumbleweeds has been a sure thing restaurant choice. It is now under new management. Service was great, meal was spectacular. We pulled out our gift card and were then informed that because the restaurant was under new management, old gift cards would no longer be accepted. Very poor customer relations policy... and to then blame the previous owners for it? Unacceptable.

“New management”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

I was here in March 2012 and found this place great. So, I was worried that new management = yuck. wROnG! The steak (from a local ranching group) was superb in flavour. The peppercorn crust was a perfect match to the peppercorn gravy but did not overwhelm the flavour of the meat. Only bad thing is that the sides need work. The mashed potatoes were great but the garlic undercooked. Yes, I will be back again. Service was great.

“Excellent Service & Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

My husband & I dined there with friends from Edmonton, who had been recommended to this restaurant. We hadn't eaten there in years, due to a bad experience. However, the restaurant has new owners & the food was excellent. Two of us had seafood alfredo, one chicken parmesan (I think) & I had steak. All of us were happy & I especially liked the flavour of the steak spices. However, our overall dining experience was excellent due to our waitress!! I didn't ask her name but seemingly she has worked in the bar of the restaurant for years & was on loan that night to the dining room. She was such a comedian & was bantering back & forth with all of us & then when she would laugh, she was making my husband tear up with laughter. It was like having our own entertainment through dinner. The food was great, but she really made our night!! Thank you waitress!!!
