We've eaten at the Airdrie Toad & Turtle at least 6 times. We usually go for brunch and have found the food good and the service quick and friendly. We enjoy the weekend breakfast special and have always been pleased with the amount of food and the quality. Only one complaint would be the jam for the toast. The little packets on the last two Saturday visits have been dry and the texture of shoe leather. This was mentioned to the server on our one visit. The last time was the same...I opened 6 little packets and left them all on my plate and mentioned it to her again....same comment..."oh I will tell the manager". Have not been back...we went to Eggsoasis for our brunch last Saturday in Airdrie.

I wouldn't recommend this place. We have been three times and will not be returning. The service is very hit or miss. The atmosphere is good. The only time I would go here is for drinks after work. The food is overpriced for what you get.

As a Scot living in Canada, it becomes a little tiresome that these themed restaurants try to be Scottish/Irish! The food was tasty and plentiful but if you don't like burgers then there's little other choice. The staff were friendly, but I won't be hurrying back.

This is a great pub that's been open in Airdrie for around a year. It's located just off Deerfoot and Yankee Valley, behind the Tim Horton's. I've been there several times, usually on weekend afternoons and a few times on Friday night after work. The service has always been excellent, the young women prompt, friendly and attentive. The food is generally very good too - the tossed salad with salmon is great, the burgers very generous and the lemon pepper chicken wings are to die for - the tang of lemon zest with the salt makes them irresistible. The TnT has a great selection of beers as well.
So why the "average" rating? The place is Screaming LOUD!! When the music and/or TVs are turned down, patrons' voices echo off all the hard surfaces and there is a loud but OK hum. But the music is generally cranked way too high (with a crappy selection of recent pop) and you have to yell to be heard over it, which raises the overall noise level to somewhere around Airbus 380 warming up 20 feet away. We just give up on trying to have a conversation; we eat our food and drink our beer as quickly as we can and leave. This is not a place to relax and linger over a couple of beers unless you have the lungs of Celine Dion and are good at reading lips.
This would be my favorite place in Airdrie if they would just turn the noise down and put in some noise dampening equipment like wall hangings or carpets. As it is, if there are more than 20 people in the place I just turn around and find somewhere else to go, and now that there is a new pub getting ready across the road by Rob's no Frills it won't be hard. Please, TnT Manager, turn the noise DOWN!!
