Stopped here based on reviews. Menu has a good variety with dishes to please everyone. Service seemed friendly enough. We specifically asked about the grilled cheese. Wanted to ensure it was not plastic cheese slices, and was assured it was real cheese. What did we get? Plastic grilled cheese. Most of the food seems to be GFS or Sysco commercial... More

We had a wonderful breakfast and proper tea in a proper pot as my hubby says. He had English breakfast tea and I had cream earl grey tea. He had bacon and eggs with cubed hash browns and I had French toast and bacon. The bacon could've been more crispy but was ok. There is a breakfast buffet but we... More

The drive between Edmonton and Calgary is somewhere around 3 hours plus or minus and a break close to the middle is very nice. Glenn's is a comfortable non -quick -food place for a good meal and, if you enjoy teas or tissues you have a choice of well over 200 choices. The food is fairly good if somewhat uninspired... More

Glenn's is a restaurant that is consistent and solid. It is like a diner and the food is comfort food. The prices are a little bit steep but they have an amazing selection of teas. Not much of an ambience but it is a restaurant that caters to the truck stop crowd.

I stopped in Red Deer on my way to Innisfail and decided to got to Glenn's. I've been here once before and remembered that I enjoyed myself so I'd give it another go. Be aware that this restaurant has the largest tea selection I've ever seen. So be prepared to look through a tea menu as well as a food... More

Nice place for breakfast or brunch. They have a brunch buffet on the weekends and good variety and they seem to be able to keep the food hot and fresh on the buffet. Coffee is also good. Service is very good to excellent.
