Ship patio, open during Covid with expanded seating. Best patio in the city for meeting friends and drinking beer

Everything was good, unfortunately one of the outdoor tv’s wasn’t working and they had to rearrange the seating. Bigger tv for football games on the patio is a must

We sat at the bar. One bartender was amazing and the other one was prickly and rude. Both meals were served luke-warm/cold. Too many other places with better service and food to explore. We won’t be back.

Always a great time at The Ship. The Daily food specials are very good if your looking for lunch. Stopped in for Easter Turkey Dinner was very good and have picked up other meals on the way to work.

This place is awesome, they really do care about whose coming to the games and if there is a change like this weekend they will take the time to call you personally to inform you of the change.
I always like coming here because the staff are great.

The Ship has been a favourite for many years. It has a relaxed atmosphere, good food and the service is always great. Their choice of beers are amazing and there’s always rotating taps for something new. My kids love the menu and their specials are always intriguing.
It’s a great spot!

I've always loved the Ship patio but in the past some of the waiting staff had made it seem like we often were inconviencing them with their job. Our server on Friday was prompt, super friendly and added to the good ol' feel of the Ship! Thanks for a great visit!

Service was great, been going there since they first opened. Great beer selection. The Ship is like going home, very comfortable. The food needs more flavor though. The Ship burger needs a lot more especially in the meat itself, add some spices. The crispy chicken didn’t have any flavor as well, bun fell apart. The steak sandwich was not a good cut of meet, had some gristle. The baked chicken wings were greasy and fatty. Ordered the New York cheese cake, worst I have ever tasted. Did not taste like an original New York cheese should, maybe they used low fat cream cheese? And please get rid of the shoestring fries and bring back real pub fries. What were they thinking with that change?
After all that, still the best pub in Calgary. Just need to fix a few items in the kitchen. And yes I will be there on a regular basis.
