Steakhouse
The 2nd Ave Grill is a casual dining steakhouse that is located at the very core of Saskatoon’s downtown in the Scotia Centre, and has become the eatery of choice for afternoon power lunches, late evening and pre-theatre dining. The atrium is the perfect venue for weddings as well as private and group functions. The contemporary styling of the restaurant and a metropolitan menu, ranging from steaks, fresh salmon, salads and sandwiches, a vast wine list, and a modern décor, as well as great company, have made the 2nd Ave Grill a favourite destination for Saskatoon's maturing downtown crowd. Park your car in our underground parking lot, and come upstairs for the very best food and drink that Saskatoon's downtown has to offer!

Service was great! Unfortunately my lobster was a little over cooked and my steak was a little cold - but the other meals were great! Will go back again anytime.

Fantastic atmosphere and the service was outstanding. One party’s meal was not what she figured it would be but no complaints. I would recommend and I will attend again in the future.

Service was attentive and very good. Pleasant ambiance. Food was...uneven. The mushroom and chicken soup was superb, as was the avocado crab dip. But the shaved prime rib sandwich, turkey club, and jambalaya were all bland and disappointing. Sweet tea was shameful (coming from the south) - tasted like it came from a powdered drink mix. Prices were a bit on the high side, particularly for entrees, and especially for that neighborhood. Dinner for 3 (2 sandwich selections and jambalaya) came to about $100 CAD ($80 US) with no alcoholic drinks. Not a great value for the price, in my opinion.

2nd Ave Grill has the best service and food in Saskatoon. I have introduced many family and friends to this restaurant and it has soon become their favourite place to go as well. Highly recommend!

Loved we could book a reservation on the go. Loved we were sold by the menu accessible on line. Loved the easy location. Loved we had a wonderful waitress. Appetizers and cocktails were so good. All made in house. Dinner was displayed beautifully. Flavours were so good and there was no shortage of a meal. The plate was full. Dessert was simple and yet so tasty. I have already recommended to friends. Mention to total strangers and they couldn't believe how long it had been since they had been. They definitely have a reminder sitting in the back of their minds now. We will most definitely be back when we are visiting Saskatoon. Wonderful way to spend our money on our Anniversary dinner. By the way, the meal we ate was very well priced as well.

Saturday night was very busy with Kinky Boots at TCU place and a show at Persephone. Everyone handled the crowd well and we were out of there with plenty of time to spare. Service was phenomenal!

Our meal on Saturday night was superb. The wait for it however was a tad longer than we expected. As for the service, it was good as one of our waiters was in training, but he did well. They were both very polite.

We went here before an event with tickets for 7:30. Our table for 5:15. Our food didn’t arrive until 6:55 as there was a group of 50 ahead of us. Sad as we were only 4. Waitress was nice as took our drinks off the bill although had finished them long ago. Food mediocre! Lacks presentation. Ambience nice. Our friend with us frequents here twice a month stated this was not the norm. Apologies were given. May try again as I know it’s a good place to go.

Disappointed at lack of response to the fact that we brought a friend here for her 100th birthday, and the restaurant had received prior notice of this fact. Not even offered a complimentary dessert.

We chose to dine at the 2nd Ave Grill for a business meeting, since it was a central location for everyone. We were served quickly and the meal was very good. I had the steak bites and Caesar salad and would highly recommend.

Average is about all we can say. Attentive service and decent food, but nothing really stood out. The salt & pepper shakers on the table were probably a clue that the food might need something more.
