We visited at the start of October on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It was very busy but service was good. We sat in the yard at the back as it was sunny and we just wanted a drink. Full of history and well worth a...visit if you are on the area.More

A visit to The Last Saloon is like opening a time capsule which manages to cover snippets spanning the last century and a quarter. Out front, the saloon and adjoining hotel look like they haven’t had any maintenance in decades. Inside, signs, pictures, tools, pop...bottles and taxidermy cover the walls without any apparent effort to curate it. The stuff has apparently just gotten more dense over time. In one corner, a mechanical band of 12” men from the 1940’s may play a two-step song for you if the staff takes a liking to you. In another corner are large-caliber bullet holes fired in the 1980s as warning shots over the heads of 3 strangers who threatened not to pay. Most of the other patrons, who were probably locals, chose to eat in the more conventional outdoor seating. This is not a gourmet restaurant, but it will give you an adventure you won’t get anyplace else.More

Arrogant staff. The last 2 times we tried to go to theLast Chance S we ended up walking out after being completely ignored the first time as we waited to be seated, the second time as we waited a ridiculous amount of time for anyone...to take our order.More

Most service establishments have wait times for guests when it’s busy. Guests that require an order to be taken can “certainly flag over” a server to help them. I truly do not understand how you can state this makes the staff arrogant? It’s simple, if...More

I went to the last chance saloon with my family to enjoy a quiet evening in the quaint town of Wayne. Upon arrival we received a warm welcome, but that is where the satisfaction ends. The food was terrible, the taco salad bowl tasted as...if it has been sitting on the counter for a week. The service was horrible and slow. We were talked down to and then ignored. As a resident of the area I will never again recommend my friends or family to go here. Enjoy the drive out to Wayne but head back to Drumheller for dinner, spare yourself the expensive bill for nothing but bad food and service.More

Good cold beer and tasty burgers , but stingy with the fries. Good atmosphere. Cleanliness not their best attributes. Very sticky tables. Still cleaning the tables with a floor mop. Using the same pail of water and pinesol for at least 5 tables while we...were there. And moping the table tops with the same mop as they cleaned the bench seats with. We asked the waitress if they changed the pail of water for cleaning tables and seats, and she said once in the morning. Then she stomped away angry that we asked the question. Hey , we are a bunch bikers that come here often, but still like clean tables and bathrooms.More

Last Chance Saloon. Boy last chance is right. Way outside of Drumheller but worth the drive. Make sure you go over all 11 bridges into Wayne, Alberta population 27. The Last Chance has a restaurant area and a hotel. The eating area is full of...memorabilia and three bullet holes. Also we heard one of the hotel rooms is haunted. Food was ok typical pub grub. Had an outside patio area along with a saddle bar. Which is actually you sitting in a saddle at the bar. Has campsites on the property not sure of facilities.More

After a scenic drive toward Wayne on the "11 bridges road" you reach the Last Chance Saloon. While the interior is relatively small and funky, I personally preferred the backyard/patio with its eclectic décor and friendly staff. If you have the time I highly recommend...a drive and a stop for a drink & snack. Would like to have gone in the evening to enjoy the backyard live music.More

We’ve wanted to visit the Last Chance Saloon for a long time. Finally got the chance. It was a scorcher of a day so we went through the restaurant to sit on the back patio in the shade. Prompt attention from our server but then...things kind of fell apart. We both ordered the smoked 1/4 chicken with sides of cole slaw and cornbread. I chose fries as an option, he chose baked beans. Iced tea hit the spot. After waiting over an hour for our lunch we asked what the holdup was. 5 minutes later one of the servers brings out a smoked chicken and a brisket sandwich. Nope. Not what we ordered. Then a bit later our server brings out a smoked chicken and a smoked pork chop. She said she was responsible for the mixup. She said we could get the 2 smoked chickens we wanted if we waited another 10 minutes. 🙄 We took what she offered. Both meats were incredible. The smoked chicken was juicy and so tasty. He said the pork chop was delicious but rather dry. Luckily we had given ourselves plenty of time for lunch. The manager comped the pork chop meal but we would have been happier if we both got what we ordered. Regardless, I’d go back for that smoked chicken!More

A hot Sunday night in July. No air conditioning --- we shrugged and sat down inside (whew!) then later moved to a table outside on the patio at the back when somebody left. The meal was good once we had got settled and ordered. That...was a process that took some time and patience. Same with paying for the meal: when the server inquires "can I bring your bill?" a person assumes payment will be made at the table; not so. The beef brisket salad is good on a hot evening. Bison burger was pronounced OK by Madame, "pretty good gluten free bun". No beer on tap! 😢 (had they run out?) but a good selection of canned local craft beers. The singer / songwriter performing that night, Ruth Purves Smith, was good. Just mellow enough for dinner accompaniment.More

We drove here from calgary for lunch. The drive is nice, about 1.5 hours from the city. You go over 11 bridges after Drumheller on the road to this place popular with motorcyclists and tourists. The restaurant is in front and out back outside. You...have lots of choices of where to sit and outside is pet friendly. The food is OK - average I'd say. We had hotdogs and burgers with fries and onion rings., Most is from frozen, but it's served fast and is pretty good. Their website has their menu with pricing on it. They have live music on weekends I believe.More

Our burgers come from Riverside Packers, our LOCAL meat processor. We believe in supporting our community as we know how ghost towns are made. We don’t make the hot dogs but we do carry Nathan’s and those are some delicious!
