A great place with history
Love Bookers, the food and location cannot be beat. Service was standard, but the manager was always checking in on us. Will be back soon.

First time to Bookers amd
First time to Bookers amd was pleasantly surpirsed there is a quality smokehouse BBQ joint in Calgary. I have had many excellent BBQ and smoked delights and Bookers definetly competes. The burnt ends of brisket are a real treat, could use a little less sauce, smokehouse wings excellent when paired with the carolina sauce on the side. St Louis ribs had a wonderful smoke ring and sauced just right.

Had a great time there with my sife. The servers were attentive and friendly. I had a rack of ribs and my wife had the snow crab. The food was very good but this isn't the place to be if you are worried about getting your hands a little messy!

Great Girls Night Out
Wonderful energy in the room, we especially enjoyed the live music. Service was very attentive and accommodating; we changed tables part way through the night and our server went out of her way to make sure we still received top notch service. The food was excellent, we highly recommend the Trash Salad, Crab Cakes, Yam Fries, Jambalaya, Brisket, and yes size does matter!, the Bookers Burger which was impressive enough to be photo worthy when it arrived and equally impressive when consumed. Overall great value for $.

Surprisingly good food
Yes, service is not great, yes the place is cavernous, yes there are some dodgy characters, yes, it's "only" comfort food, but man, is it good comfort food, at a very reasonable price. The best brisket I've yet had!

It was a great experience
It was a great experience from the time we first stepped foot in the restaraunt to when we left - from the greeting by the host, to the waitress (she had a great attitude and funny- if she wasn't working she could have sat down and joined the family dinner. ), to the applies, main course and dessert.
It's been almost twenty years since I have last been to restaraunt and I love the new vibe of the place.

Crabs, Crabs & More Crabs
This is one of our favorite restaurants and is also a favorite restaurant with out out of town family. We are all seafood lovers so we usually try to bring guests for the Sunday and Monday night all you can eat Crab. The staff is friendly and the service is great.

We've been wanting to check out Bookers for awhile. Really, Blues, BBQ, and Crab it doesn't get much better than that. Love the look of the exposed old bricks. Food was very good. I was leery about deep fried dill pickles, But surprisingly very yummy!!
Outstanding part was service from both our waitress and the chef who came to our table to discuss a food allergy. They went above and beyond what the majority of wait/kitchen staff do when it comes to special requests or allergies.

Great night out
We were a table of eight, the atmospher was good, food was good and a little different. The range of smoked meats plus the crab and shrimp were excellent. At 9pm the blues band started and once the meal was over we moved through to the bar area until closing being entertained right though until after midnight. Only down side was an 18% stuck on the bill for a table of eight.
