Come for two step and drinking. If you can be here during Stampede or Bull Bustin you will have an especially good time.

Cowboys and cowgirls, but pretty sure it's more hat and less cattle in this place! This IS the place to line dance, or take line dance lessons, two-step, yeehaw and generally let loose! Live bands begin around 7pm, We were looking for dinner and kinda stumbled upon this place on MacLeod Tr. S. I had been here 25 years ago... More

Stopped in with family during the Stampede. This is an incredibly busy time for them but they managed to keep it tight and on track. Still one of the best Steak Sandwiches you will ever find. Great atmosphere but don't worry if you are not a Cowboy type, they make you feel welcome. Alberta hospitality!!

Last summer we got invited to a corporate social event during Stampede here. It was a blazing hot day so we were under the shade of the tent. We enjoyed the music, drinks, buffet and some fun games like bull riding, and a wheel of chance sponsored by one of the beer brands. Fun spot!
