Whether you eat indoors or out, the views are terrific from this Canmore restaurant. The menu is very diverse, but focuses on local specialties. We enjoyed well prepared meats from Alberta, along with some local favorites - Mac & cheese perogies and sweet potato fries. Natalie was a terrific server. She made excellent suggestions and allowed us to enjoy a leisurely meal. We highly recommend the Iron Goat Pub and Grill.

I visited this restaurant with my grandparents, as they had a gift card given to them. The prices are overly high, and we went far over the gift card's balance, which would not normally have been a problem. However, the service and food was not worthwhile. I had an order of fish and chips, which was good, as were the views. From here, however, the experience degraded. However good the fish and chips were, its side of coleslaw was nearly inedible. I am from the US, and have heard the jokes about Canadians having "Blanders." This dish had clearly been through one on a high setting. The usual, distinctive tangy flavor was missing, and instead it was a blob of sickly-sweet, wet cabbage. The pastrami was also poor, and overly salty. The Caesar salad was badly made, containing onions which highly detracted from the flavor. Past this, the service was bad. We had to ask our waitress for water multiple times, and it took several minutes to arrive. Although this restaurant has a nice view and an interesting theme, with occasionally good food, there are issues that far outweigh these positive factors.

My favorite place in Canmore by far. Between the beautiful architecture of the room and the view from the large windows, you tend to just sit and stare. Good selection of local beers and some unique entrees (try the wild game meatloaf). Well trained staff.

Only complaint is that it can get pretty busy but there's a reason for that.

This restaurant has a great view. Although we eat inside we still enjoyed seeing the 3 Sisters. Quite a pleasant view while your dining. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals. He got the meatloaf and I had Spaghetti Carbonara. Our waitress was great and we wished we found this place earler.

Great views, Great food and a wonderful ambiance in this restaurant. One can see the sisters clearly from several of the tables by the windows.
