    The restaurant itself was gorgeous with amazing views. The service, however, was lacking. 5 out of 8 of our orders were wrong, the server constantly forgot to remove glasses, and we had to order another round of drinks as soon as we were served the current order because it took so long. We were very excited when walking in because it was an incredible atmosphere and, overall, the food was good, but we wouldn't return because of poor service.

    We have a new tradition to celebrate the Canmore half marathon in September each year with a great lunch at the Iron Goat! Our group of 12 sat outside on the beautiful patio and our Australian server (I can't remember his name but he deserves credit sorry!) was bright and funny and excellent. My 6 year old daughter joined us and though there is no kids menu he made it very clear that we could order "off the menu" if we liked and ordered her a cheese pizza she loved . It was too big for her so we had panned to have the Mountain spinach salad (fabulous) and share a piece of her pizza. Thanks again for a great experience!

    Ordered new york strip steak. Two of us ordered the same. Upon arrival it looked like a piece of fried liver although it tasted maybe slightly better than liver. I have never seen such a thin steak, ever!!!! We were rushed (maybe that was good)so that the wedding party could come down into our section. Would definitely not go back. Find another place to eat!!!

    Beautiful view, terrible food, and even worse service from our server who was "Matt". My Pizza was soggy when it came out so i sent it back my husband had completely ate his meal and we still waited another 10 minutes for my pizza, totally not the servers fault but he was grouchy and just plain rude about the entire situation. A manager i believe is who promoed my pizza but also had two more drinks brought to us which we paid for and my husband didn't ask for another drink and i had wanted to switch what i was drinking assuming we were not going to be charged for it but we were definitely charged it. I was so disappointed with our overall experience.

    We've dined at the Iron Goat several times and this last time, the food was most disappointing, in particular, the chicken and goat cheese flatbread - it was lukewarm, crust was hard and there was no flavor at all in the ingredients (sort of like chewing cardboard). Do like the location and vibe in the restaurant and so will give them another chance with the food before striking it off our list

    Always a good place for a group, especially visitors from overseas, as the mountain views are spectacular and the patio catches the late sun when others in Canmore are in the shade. The fajitas are always reliable and good value.

    Our server was fantastic, very thoughtful and thorough. Service was timely, food was ok. I think most everyone will find the menu ample both food and drink wise. The setting was impressive and the atmosphere well suited. Busy and noisy, suited for a more energetic evening. Groups will enjoy what is on offer, dinners for special occasions, birthdays, wedding etc... should find the venue more than suitable. Views, excellent service and decor makes this a stand out experience.

    It is a great place with a brilliant view and the service was very good. The food however was average and for the first time in her life my wife had to send hers back - risotto that looked and tasted like it had been pre - made and sitting around for a while. The rest of the meal was fine.

    Found this restaurant looking under Banff, Alberta, Canada. Beware, it is several miles from downtown Banff and definitely not within walking distance. The food was good and our waiter quick to make recommendations. He didn't hesitate to steer us to or away from particular menu items (which we like). The wait was a bit slower than usual as they had a wedding party which claimed much of the staff, but it was acceptable and the waiter did warn us. All in all, a good dining experience.

    Sadly, this restaurant did not measure up to my expectation. It has a lovely, scenic view of the mountains outside of Canmore, but that's about it. The food is nothing special. I'm very sorry to have to submit this review as I was very optimistic. There are several more eating establishments in the area with far better food quality. Prices too high for what was received.

    We started with the crab and lobster dip which was very good. One of us had a salad with chicken. Unfortunately, the chicken was served totally bland - no spices had been used. The other had the ribs which were very good. The accompanying sides were not very good.

    Iron Goat was recommended to us and I can see why, food was excellent, view was amazing, service was excellent. We will be back! The restaurant was beautiful, the big heavy front doors, all the stone and timbers and seeing the wine cellar was amazing. This was our best meal in Canmore so far.

    We were 5 friends celebrating a birthday and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, the service fabulous, and the staff very attentive and knowledgeable. We enjoyed a nice, reasonably priced bottle of wine with our meal. I would definitely recommend this place (and we did that night to other guests staying at our B & B) for all ages.

    Unfortunately, our main courses were not up to par given the ratings of this place. The chicken was extremely dry and so over cooked it was a struggle. In addition, the risotto tasted like sticky glue. The veggies were the only decent item. Very disappointing and We will never go back.

    We were caught off guard by the 13/14 year old hosts; polite, but underage. The server, while friendly, seemed to want to rush us through the evening. The server mentioned they have a 14 year old chef which explained both the quality and presentation of the food. We were quite disappointed with the evening and will not return to that restaurant

The owners, kitchen staff & servers have got a very good thing happening in all respects of setting up & running a great business, providing their customers with a great dining experience.

    This establishment is local for us and we go a lot. It is usually very good food, and good service even when busy. This time not so. None of us particularly enjoyed our meals and the kitchen got my grand daughters order wrong. We are hoping it was a "one off" and won't become the norm.

    The good: service. They moved us from outside to inside with no hassle and although a tad on the slow side, our waitress was great with the kids. They have a kids menu which is nice. The bad: the kids menu is $12. All the other prices are higher end, but the food is not. Pub quality or below. You are paying ( I assume) for the "resort" location. Don't expect restuarant, although the prices suggest it.

    Great service and atmosphere. The food is too expensive for what you get. $34 for a 10oz steak that has no seasoning on it (just comes straight off the grill) and $16 for fish & chips when the fish is cod is a bit much. However, dessert was awesome, had the Rundle Paw, its like a beaver tail with whip cream and berries.
