“You better like cheese”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

I came here with a colleague mid week while in town on business. The bar side was packed, restaurant side dead. Servers were average at best.
We decided to try a few things: pizza, stuffed mushroom caps, lasagna. 1) lasagna is basically chef boyardee, just wider noodles with ruffly edges swirled up with sauce in a baking dish. No layers, spinach, ricotta.... Baked spaghetti pretty much. 2) pizza only came in 2 for 1. 3) mushrooms looked like the lasagna, a big dish of cheese.... And that's because EVERYTHING comes with 1/2" of mozzarella on it.

“Just ok”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We ate here as a large group. As expected with the number of diners we had, drink and meal service was slow. Unfortunately, two kids meals were missed, which was very disappointing as they were the reason for the stop (hockey team meal).

Food was ok.

One of the supervisors came over to help with our group, she was wonderful. Efficient, pleasant and got the meal back on the rails.

“Family meal out”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

After a busy day at Buffalo Jump followed by a drive to Brooks, we ate here because it was the closest place to our hotel. It wasn't very busy, but the food took quite a long while to arrive. We had 2 pizzas to share between 4 of us because it was buy 1 get 1 free. Thank goodness it was - these pizzas were really expensive! However, they were also very filling and we were able to take out the leftovers which we enjoyed the following day as a picnic lunch. The staff were friendly and polite but we wouldn't rush back here, as there was little atmosphere, prices were high (on pizzas) and the service was slow.

“Good Food”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We went to Gus's after a day of digging for dinosaur bones in Dinosaur Park and were tired and hungry. There were not too many people in the restaurant and we initially wondered what the quality would be like. The waitress was very pleasant and helpful, and as the portions appeared quite large we had individual salads but shared a steak, large baked potato and mushrooms. There was more than enough to eat. They cut the steak in half before broiling it and was perfect. They even had Alexander Keith's on tap. We could not get over the bill...it was one of the most inexpensive meals we have had for a long time. Terrific value.

“Typical Italian and pizza”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Food is average, salad is plain, pizza is very cheesy. Staff is friendly. Large lounge and restaurant. Lots of choices on menu but specials are always the same.
