“Food + Beer + Patio what more does one need?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Had a short wait for a patio table but the food, beer and service were all good at a good price. Recommended

“Mediocre experience overall”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

Traveling here on a holiday Monday, Canmore was already hectic. The wood openly told us that upon seating it would take 50 minutes to receive our food, which was fine. Very slow to be greeted. The server was okay, didn't seem overly engaged with us. The good itself was fine, nothing to write home about. If travelling in Canmore, you can likely find a more pleasant place to have a sit down meal of higher quality.

“Nice food - watch the service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

but not incredible - there are nicer places to eat in Canmore. The restaurant itself is nice, although we sat inside the patio did look very nice with great views. Food was just ok - although I asked for half ribs I was given and charged for full ribs, i didn't complain as I did eat them all - but couldn't help but think they were pulling a fast one. Also, check your bill - when our's arrived we had been charged for an extra drink we didn't have - she immediately tried to blame the other waitress and rectified the mistake, but again couldn't help but think as tourists they were trying it on. I wouldn't really go back, as I say the food is good not great and the service questionable - even if pleasant!

“What a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

There was a long wait for tables inside, so we decided to be a little cooler and eat on the patio. It was very good food and UNBELIEVABLE views. A bit pricey but worth the view.
