    I cannot understand restaurants that add so much salt to their cooking. Both my guest and I had steak with mashed potatoes and another side. The steak was cooked as requested and was tender, but both the steak and the sides contained way too much salt. Restaurants need to understand that there is salt at the table and if they want more, they can add more themselves. We were in a rush to get to a hockey game so did not ask for the meal to be re-done. For those concerned with salt, I do not recommend the steak or mashed potatoes.

    We had a 5:15 reservation and the majority of the people in the dining area were drinkers...the noise level there until about 6:30 was close to unbearable. Fortunately by then, a lot of the drinkers were leaving, but it did make it uncomfortable for those of us trying talk while dining. Having said that, the food was absolutely fantastic...I'd go again for the food, but more likely at lunchtime. Because of the noise level It's not really a place to go for late afternoon/evening dining anymore.

    Township is a remake of the Red Water Grill. The menu has fewer options than the Red Water and more nouveau, artsy kinds of selections that I do not find appealing. The acoustics are terrible in both the lounge and dining room, making conversation difficult at times. Not a bad restaurant, but one that will not be my first choice for lunchtime dining.

    Had a reservation on Nov 11th for 12:15, got seated no problem. Ordered wings as an appetizer and then the chicken pesto wrap and french onion soup. Server notified me there was an upcharge for the french onion soup which was no problem. Wings were good, but then we waited approx 30 minutes to get our food - we had to ask for the bill before we even received the food just so that we could prepay and get out. I also wanted to note two things - the upcharge on the french onion soup was the full amount of getting a french onion soup - so that's not an upcharge and then I might as well have ordered another side too. My wrap was supposed to have avocado as well and they replaced it with cucumber - not a big deal, but I was not notified.

    Just had appetizers and drinks. It was so noisy the waitress didn't hear one of the orders and got it wrong. Tooks quite a while to get our drinks after they were ordered. The appetizers were better than they sounded. Really quite deliciousl.

    Note sure what the negative reviews are all about because our party of three could not have had a better experience. We ordered the Southern Chicken and Spicy Mac N Cheese and all three of us loved it. Noise was not an issue for us as we could easily hear one another without having to raise our voices. Service was very good, we had a lovely waitress who was attentive and our food arrived in 20 minutes. We all agreed we would need no arm twisting to come back.

    I found the service and food to be on par with typical downtown lunch quality and diversity. However, the noise level was above average and I would NOT recommend this place if you are planning a business lunch where communication and the ability to listen is important.

    So sad that we've lost the Rustic Redwater with Township who have now replaced it. This menu is traditional bar food - not sophisticated or interesting enough for downtown clients other than pre-game fare who were the folks there the night we dined. I won't return.

    A work friend had recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Unfortunately there was a big office get together going on in the bar section so it was a lot louder than usual. However, the food was great and service was fantastic. The Eggs and Bacon appetizer is a must try!

    Our visit was a business lunch for two. The new offering is pretty much like it was under Redwater's brand. The interior décor has not changed and some staff have remained. I don't frequent this establishment often enough to notice whether the menu had changed. On this visit, it was selected for it's geographic location in the city. The fact that nothing stood out in either a good or bad sense means we conducted our business quite happily in this venue and would suggest others could do the same.

    Went to lunch with a former colleague. Very surprised it wasn't busier. I ordered the daily pot pie. It was good, but that's all you get. One pot pie on a little plate for $15. No side salad or anything. My dining partner kept trying to give me some of her flatbread because she felt I got shortchanged. Lots of new staff, had three different servers. One took our drink order, one took our lunch order and another our coffee order. Really like the new tables. Less squishy in the dining room than Redwater.

    Not sure why anyone had to drop a million into redecorating/rebranding this restaurant but it is slightly nicer than it used to be. Ordered the fried chicken and spicy mac n' cheese which was wicked. Super friendly server, quick and polite service.

    First time being there since the change over for meeting lunch. I do like the atmosphere, food was great, menu had lots of choices, only problem was our waitress service and lack of. After 15mins of still no one to take our order or if we had any questions about the menu, we had to ask someone else. However, I will return just hopefully in a different section.

    You could tell the servers were all in training so they were a bit slow. Food was really good but just took a while. The place shouldn't have opened to the public if their servers weren't ready.

    This was our first visit to Township since it opened. My boss wanted to take our group out for an appreciation lunch and he LOVES Vintage Chophouse so I thought this would be a great option considering it is much closer to the office. The food was tasty and portions were adequate. I ordered the Simple Salad - it was good but extremely salty. In The remainder of the table ordered steaks. The only complaint was around the way the meals are served - each accompaniment was served on a separate dish which made it awkward to eat. It was quite noisy for lunch hour but the noise level was tolerable. The service was ok - once we received our meals, the server seemed to have forgotten about us.

    I booked an office lunch there on Monday for a birthday. There was 6 of us and the unfortunately the service was terribly slow. We sat down at 12:15 and 5 minutes later someone brought us water who said was not our server but she would be by soon. We waited 15 more minutes before our server finally came by. She was very much robotic, not sure if she was new or what the situation was but it wasn't good. The place was pretty full, but at the same time if you can't handle that many tables then there should be more people on. We will be back, hopefully by then the service will improve.

    I had booked a reservation at Redwater Rustic Grille so was surprised that we were actually at Township Bar & Grill. This was it's 2nd week of operation which would explain the very small crowd. We had terrific service and the food, especially the ribchop was great. THe appetizer of ahi tuna tartar with a mouse of avocado and jalepeno was smooth, creamy, and served with tasty little crisps. An acquired taste, but tasty. For the main, we split a ribchop for two, with parmesan fries and spicy mac and cheese. Cannot say enough about the ribchop. The seasoning was bang on and was simply outstanding. The mac and cheese, although tasty, was overcooked. All in all, a great evening and we will be back.

    The noise was the biggest factor for us as it was so loud you could barely talk to each other. Our server was only on her second day, so we will cut her some slack and the food was fine. The volume of the music is the sole reason we wouldn't come back. Probably a great place to hang out if you are under 35!
