We're in Canmore often and our place is just behind the Iron Goat so it's convenient to go there - they do have a great venue and location BUT the food sucks!!

We were just there this past weekend and typically we don't order food from there but we were hungry. Once again we were disappointed with the food. We ordered the chicken sandwich - and they managed to screw it up by sticking this thick fatty strip of uncooked bacon on it which was just GROSS!! When I asked the waitress about it she was very proud that it was their own in house smoked bacon. Well it's awful!

What I would really like to see is someone with some culinary experience take the Iron Goat over and bring it to the potential it deserves!! Not this crap!!

This was a wonderful dinner! We took our waiter's recommendation and had the Alberta Game meatloaf but asked for the lobster mashed potatoes instead of the Mac and cheese. With the vegetables on the side, this was so tasty! Just writing this makes me want to go back for it again! For dessert we shared the cream puff ice cream sandwich! So good!

We had a group of 12 people from the US who were attending our wedding the next day. We were able to secure the private room downstairs which was everything we wanted it to be. It was quiet enough to talk, there was a TV monitor in the room, and they arranged a nice buffet table so that we could have cocktails and appetizers before we sat down to eat. The food and service were exceptional. We eat at the Iron Goat frequently, but I must say they really outdid themselves with the food that night. They have so much to offer. Magnificent views during the day, best patio ever, and the option to privately dine at night (when it's dark and you can't see the beautiful views anyway). We have seen the "Goat" get better and better since they first opened. What a great dining option to have so close to our home in Canmore.

Came in last saturday, Crazy busy, but a fun and stress free atmosphere! We were there with a large party and our table was upstairs. Prior to going up we had drinks at the bar. The bartender was very busy, but was perfectly friendly and attentive regardless of the chit machine. She had a great sense of humour and hearing about Canmore from a born and bred local was great! The staff upstairs were great, super attentive, We drank them dry!! We never felt like we were being pushed out the door, and the group of ladies there for a bachelorette party seemed like they were having a great time! perfect for all groups and expectations.

overall a must go to place, even just for some drinks!
