“boring with a side of dixie cup”
Reviewed 12 March 2009

I went to Ed's during the "Dine out Calgary" promotion. The meal was bland all the way through. The arctic char tasted like nothing, the vegetables were overcooked and the only redeeming quality of the meal (honestly) was the Dixie cup soy sauce for flavor. The ceasar salad had no lemon or bacon and was over-dressed with flavorless dressing. Finally, the bunt cake desert was dry and the size of an egg. My boyfriends meal was not good either, but the most depressing part of the meal was his "chocolate mouse." It came on a plate and consisted of two small tart-like deserts in a tin. I know that $25.00 per person is not expensive but I thought that they would put their best foot foreword in order to attract new clientele.

“This place has been around forever!”
Reviewed 19 August 2008

I remember coming here when I first moved to Calgary, I tried it again before a concert. Not much has changed. I love the little rooms, the food is good, home-style not fancy gourmet but the prices are reasonable.

Unfortunately, this place has totally gone downhill. They used to be known for the best wings in town... not sure what happened but definitely isn't the case anymore.
