food was very good as was the service. The only issue is the ventilation needs to improve to eliminate some of the odor of the BBQ.

We ate here for dinner during our one night stay in Cochrane. It was clean and the service was good. The food was good as well- nothing too fancy but hot and tasty. Definitely a good choice if staying in Cochrane

Tried the pizza and love it. Most places are greasy or floppy pizza this was all the way around just perfect not greasy and the flavours were amazing

There have been changes to the portion size and quality of some items on the menu. HOWEVER- some recommendations remain the same... Best ribs, ever (seriously). Roast chicken is also tasty (dinner only I think), as is the beef wrap.

This was a good place for a quick lunch. We went there after the polar bear habitat. Good soup and garlic bread.
