Burgers
Our first restaurant & bar opened in Marda Loop, Calgary, & even way back in 1997, it was comfortable, accessible & affordable. From the very beginning, OJ’s fell in step with exactly what it has always been about. A down-to-earth, down the street experience for all. We never take ourselves too seriously. We love good food experienced in the company of true friends, in an atmosphere that fits us like a well-worn pair of jeans. It feels real here & that’s just fine by us. No pretense. No frou-frou. Just craft beers, approachable wines & tried-and-true cocktails. All served up with the kind of fresh-made comfort food you crave again & again. To this day we still hand cut our fries, serve most of our entrées with two sides & pour our own OJ’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lowers yours.

    Fantastic. Prompt service as soon as we walked in, food arrived in a timely manner. Our waitress Michaela was top notch! Refills without asking, well timed checkins with anticipation of our needs.

    The food here is excellent, always delicious & well presented. The Cobb salad & beef dip today were great, large portions, always leftovers for later.Service is good although they seem short staffed as is unfortunately the norm these days. I’ll be back next week!

    I indicate on my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and it wasn’t acknowledged. My son was disappointed but asked me to not tell the waitress, so there was *nothing*. She didn’t ask whether we were interested in dessert or coffee - just cleared our table - so I couldn’t even give a gentle *nudge* that were we celebrating. We waited for almost 10 minutes to order our drinks and the server was so soft-spoken that we had to guess whether she heard us properly. I appreciate refills on pop & water, but the empty glasses should be removed when new ones are brought.

    The service was excellent and five stars could have been given for everything but that would leave no room for future suggestions, but overall very good.

    Mother’s Day dinner was great. All the food came hot and at the same time. Our server was very attentive. The only thing that bothered us was the blinds being up and the sun being in our eyes. They were lowered for awhile and then put back up, likely by another table’s request. Luckily some clouds came and went giving a break from the sun in our eyes here and there.

    Waitress never checked on us, took her our entire meal just to give my fiancé her ranch dressing for her salad. Gave us the wrong containers to pack our stuff, took 30 minutes from giving us our receipts to give us the machine. Our waitress was constantly standing in the bar doing nothing besides talking to other waitresses. Our drinks would stay empty and other waitresses would check our table instead of our own.

    Burgers are really good. My daughters loved the eggs Benedict from the Brunch menu, it came with tons of hand cut hash browns, they couldn’t eat them all. I had the beef dip, it was very tasty.

    Service was verrrry slow. sat with empty cups for approx 15 mins. Food order took almost an hour. When food came out both chicken burgers ordered were way over fired to the point of being crunchy and dry. Server was barely talkative or friendly. Pretty dissapointing all around. (I never make complaints like this)

    Pretty standard, good service. Nothing out of the ordinary.. BUT, one of my friends spilt her coffee all over herself and table, which then pooled under the table…. We wiped the table with tons of napkins and they gave us a rag… We asked for a mop but was told it’ll be mopped when we leave. So we had to sit there in our “shame puddle”, trying to keep our feet out of it…not ideal.

    Sadly a brutal experience from the Get Go. Drinks were a huge miss, except the beer and beer can’t often be a poor choice. Food was awful and had to send back many of our tables orders either for being over cooked, no taste, etc. It was all in all just a HUGE EPIC FAIL. Sadly the Manager wasn’t even a strong enough Leader to come over to the table and chat with us he left his poor Waitress there to hang to dry. Really doubtful I personally would ever go back let alone recommend it to others.

    They did not reserve the booth requested. They let another group have it just before we came! I was extremely disappointed. They did offer to pay for our first round of drinks but the lack of following reservation protocol was upsetting.

    It’s great that OJ’s now allows kids in up till 8pm. Not sure when this rule changed but I only recently found out. We took our 10 year old and a few friends here for dinner after doing Flying Squirrel, was a great spot for a bite to eat, food was good, came in decent time (Friday dinner rush). Glad we made a reservation though (6 of us), the restaurant was busy and pretty full the entire time we were there. Overall was good, we’ll go back again now that they allow kids in.

    We went to celebrate my son's birthday. (Thirteen) and the waitress did not let us through the door because her policy establishes NOT ACCEPTING MINORS AFTER 8PM. and it was the best thing that could happen to us We went to a better place. We ate, drank and even ordered dessert.
