Great night, greater beer and wine and food even greater. The space is instantly welcoming and makes you feel glad to be back at school. That said, I never had food this good at school or drinks for that matter! Between us all we had...the salad ,polenta fries, Korean chicken burger, Prawn Laksa, Chicken 🐔 Schnitzel and Veg Burger, all epic and better than Vancouver restaurants in the last few days. Had a brilliant local wine, Syrah called Dirty Laundry and sampled maybe too many of the beers on tap! Get a Dave Bomb if available! Enjoy!More

Keeping this review simple. Great atmosphere. Superb food. Excellent service. Great selection of beers and wine. This is the kind of place that will leave our overnight stop in Revelstoke as highly memorable. We are sad to think we are not passing back through Revelstoke,...all we can do is recommend to others to make a stop here for some good food that will nourish you 100%!More

The Eatery has a vibrant, friendly atmosphere and excellent food. We had the chicken and the tuna poke bowl and both were excellent. The calamari appetizer was outstanding.

Pork ribs with vegetables. Very well prepared, fun to eat and we would eat from this restaurant again. But massive servings, each enough for two, unless you are seeking to gain weight rapidly. This overload phenomenon seems all too frequent in many restaurants in Canada,...and that's sad.More

Popped in at 5pm to make a reservation for 7.30. When we arrived at 7.30. the place was quite busy and there was a lovely atmosphere. We were very well looked after by Sarah. The food was delicious. We had a Caesar Salad followed by...Chicken Parmesan and New York Steak and finished with a fabulous Chocolate Torte. Great drinks menu…cocktails, wine, and after dinner drinks. Highly recommend.More

With no reservation we had to wait 15 minutes for seats at the bar where James entertained us with his cocktail skills and friendly conversation. Our beef and fried chicken burgers were cooked perfectly and with plenty of fries tasted great. Glasses of the house...Chardonnay and Pinot Gris went down well. The total bill was $71 before gratuties.More

Fried chicken burger is a must pick. Best burger eaten in some time. St. Hubertus beer was delish. Come and check this place out! Cool venue, great service and tasty menu items. Glad we made this stop while travelling through Revelstoke.

You are presumably in Revelstoke for some sort of adventure - otherwise you'd have stayed home. Why not also go on a food adventure? The chef here will help you on that journey by pushing some boundaries of "fusion" and traditional plates. Worth a shot!

Superb bao buns, pasta primavera, chicken Parmesan and steak. We Didn’t eat it all in one go. Atmosphere so cool and food so good, we had to go back a second time. The delicious cocktails elevated the experience.

Funky location in an old School, with a delicious menu- both cocktails and food. Service was spot on, even though it was busy with lots of tables moving through. Chicken parm and the chicken sandwich were great.

Lovely old building with huge windows: airy and spacious. Service was amazing: the team (two wait staff and a bartender) worked seamlessly. Menu is interesting and the cocktail menu was very creative! Mix of all ages in the restaurant when we were there. Colouring was...available for the kids. The calamari starter was excellent: wonderful combination of flavours. My hub had the laksa with prawns that was served in a beautiful ceramic bowl. Full of flavour and a great sized portion. I had the pasta primavera which was incredibly fresh with just a light touch of sauce.More

The service at this restaurant was excellent. The bartender and the waitress basically handles all jobs in the restaurant seating area. They were amazing to watch. The bartender made drinks, and then would go clear & clean a table, and then set it up for...the next guests. He never stopped working. The woman who sat us at the table also took our order, and served us our wine and food. She also took payment. She and the bartender were amazing. The restaurant should be thankful to have such dedicated workers. There is a great selection of food and wine, and cocktails. The food we had was amazing. I would not hesitate to return.More

I actually remember seeing a signboard for Old School Eatery as we were driving into Revelstoke. I thought the name would reflect their type of cooking, but soon found out that it’s actually located in a former school. We called in to make reservations the...same day. Arrived around 6:30pm on a Sat night and it was almost full. We were seated immediately. I really liked what they did with the space, which I assume was a classroom before. It is fairly small and fits maybe 40 people. I tried the following: - Crispy Brussels Sprouts - Good. Pomegranate seeds gave a nice touch. - Thai Noodle Salad - Not good. Decent portion size but lacked any real flavour. - Pork Belly Bao Buns - Very good. Pork belly was really good use for char siu style BBQ pork. - New York Steak Frites - Very good. BBQ sauce was great addition and potatoes were really well done. - Poke Bowl - Good. Very generous portion size. Rice was a bit soggy/mushy though. Service was friendly and as efficient as could be. Food did cone out a bit slow though. Overall, a nice surprise. Great space, and generally good food and service. I would consider coming back.More

This place was near the BnB I was staying in so decided to give it a go as quieter than main downtown area. It's a really cool old building with some history and our server was very welcoming and helpful. I had the steak with...smashed potatoes and asparagus and it was all very good. Also prices more reasonable for steak than other places I've been to recently. Loved that they were making use of the building and they can definitely cook! Would be happy to eat there again.More
