Really nice venue for Friday beers and food. Guinness was good, and reasonable selection of beers and food. All the dishes we ordered were great. Would recommend for social meets pretty informal.

Buchanans is one of our favorite restaurants in Calgary. However, during our latest meal there, we experienced the worst service we have had from any restaurant in years. The main course, which the kitchen did its usual excellent job preparing, was served to us barely...More
