I write this review with a certain amount of regret. Specifically because the last time I stopped by The Wood with my wife, the food was fantastic. Unfortunately in this particular case we were so underwhelmed, I thought I would write this review in hope...that they take note. What is most concerning here, is THE FOOD and PRICE. I understand that inflation has caused most things to go up, but when you order 3 burgers and 2 beer and it comes to 100 dollars, the food better be pretty good. The last time we were here the burger was the best we ever had. A couple of months later and the burgers while they were presented well, were completely underwhelming and forgettable. One thing we all agreed on was that the burgers were completely tasteless. Pick a burger, any burger and it would have tasted better. The place is comfy / homey/ warm and welcoming, but the entire reason people attend this place is for the food. Nothing else. Restaurants can go from hero to zero pretty quickly which can sink a place. They even changed their buns and served a dried out crumbly bun and a burger that anyone could have done better at home. The 3 of us won't be back. Tavern 1883 is a far better, consistent establishment down the street - that's where you'll find me.More

after begging the hostess to even be seated because I have a mask exemption, even though all the patrons were walking around maskless inside was totally a pain. the server was less than enthusiastic when she showed up...i had to ask about any dinner specials...and drinks... the drinks that did come were terribly mixed...the poutine i ordered came in a slurry of salty liquid i assume is what they call gravy when it was more like au soup, just a soggy mess. the one star rating is generous.More

We went Friday evening around 7 pm and had a brief 20 minute wait for a table of 6. They have a couple of vegan dishes that are creative, and tasty. More than other restaurants in Canmore. My daughter had the dragon bowl, and it...was a nice meal. There are many different beers to select, and we selected a local brand IPA. Couple of friends had steak sandwiches and were very pleased. I had the beef dip. They smoke their own beef, and it was delicious! Meals are well portioned! Service is prompt, friendly and attentive. Atmosphere is lively. I highly recommend going here, and we will visit again on our next ski trip!More

We visited The Wood for supper, and ate outside on the patio. Had to show our proof of vaccination and ID, and waited about 15 minutes for a table. The view while eating outside is awesome. You can see the mountains surrounding Canmore. I had...the Crispy Salmon Burger (Nori panko crust, miso hoisin aioli, sesame ginger slaw, pickled cucumbers, sesame seed bun) and Garlic Herb Fries (French fries tossed in garlic & herbs, served with a creamy horseradish dip). Both were excellent. I would recommend this place. Ambiance was good, and food was delicious.More

Great food, delivered right to our hotel within 40 minutes! Very filling. I had the signature burger and my wife had the dragon bowel. Both had great portions and we had an apple crisp for desert!

Visited there during Covid. Because of seating capacity at this time we had to wait around 45 minutes. We passed the time at nearby stores. Received a text when our table was almost ready. The food and beer was great. The service there was excellent....Will definitely visit again.More
