Had dinner with a group of friends while in Canmore. The place is quite vibrant and noisy, but I can say that we were seated promptly. Salads were great, but others in our group complained about way too salty fries that came with their meals. The restaurant has a large patio with a great view.

The supper we had was good and would rate in a 4 minus. Two of the meals we ordered used goat cheese in the meal but they were out of it so had to substitute feta. One of the other meals was a south west chicken club, and although it was very good, the chicken was dry and over cooked.... More

We were there late on Thanksgiving day, pretty much the only establishment open in Canmore at that time. So good to be able to sit down for some great pub food. Last time we were there late after a day snowboarding, same great service and food!
