Its an upscale restaurant but doesn't act like an upscale restaurant. Everyone is very friendly and the wait staff is knowledgeable about their whiskey's. An old school steak house with great vegetarian and seafood options, the food will please everyone!

A beautiful to have a quiet lunch, with semi-cloistered cubicles, if one needs a bit of privacy, or open tables and a patio for the sun worshipers. Service, genteel, and responsive. Drinks, well made, expected for a bar that has a fantastic whiskey collection. First...More

Went today with clients. Horrible service. Waiting forever. Steak wasn't done correctly, waiter never came back to check even or ask even when it was obvious (hadn't eaten 3/4 of the steak and had eaten everything else on the plate). Way better steakhouses downtown. Don't...More

I've been going to Buchanan's for about 25 years and always have the burger because it's the best in town. The meat is ground in-house, so unlike almost everywhere else in Alberta, you can still choose how you'd like your burger cooked. The beef is,...More
