Welcome to Surfy Surfy, a beach-inspired retreat that begs you to take it easy. Inspired by Southern California surf culture, this airy locale is the next best thing to coasting down the 101 with no plan. Serving up shareable snacks, tacos from a spit, burgers, refreshing margaritas, and Cali beers by the can, this is definitely not your average hang-out joint. Live Big. Ride the wave. Crush Tacos.

We look forward to serving you soon!

    Waitress was more concerned with hanging out at the bar, hostess sat us then returned with water, we slowly drank all the water and still haven’t seen our waitress, the hostess then brought us menus, we figured out what we wanted for drinks and dinner and still no waitress, Then as we were talking about leaving the girl that I had been observing chatting the bar with all the rest of the staff finally came over,let just say we not welcomed, wanted to go here for my birthday with my wife and kids cause I had been here before and wanted them check it out, I am embarrassed I chose here, food was fantastic but with only four tables of customers and a reservation you think they would remember I’m there.

    Food was great but the service was lacking. We hardly seen our server from the start to the finish. It was different people who dropped food off, therefore the server should’ve been around a lot more to inquire about the food or if we needed more drinks etc Food was absolutely delicious but service part leaves a bad taste.

    Best food and maybe worst bar in Calgary. Out of our first drink choice and when we made another pick, they had one left. Sort of brutal last night. Food always great.

    Our server (Mo) was great! The food was great, margaritas were very good! We had one food allergy to garlic that really limited their selection of food (1 item on menu)

    Service started out strong. Asked again for the appetizer when the maim course was brought out and all down hill from there. Tasty tacos needs work on service accuracy.

    We decided to check out Surfy Surfy after browsing the dining options at Chinook online. Are we ever glad we did - our experience was fantastic. The kids loved the chicken wings and nachos. My husband and I tried an assortment of Tacos - each one was unique and so flavourful. The corn fritters were to die for! We can't wait to return and try more dishes!

    The meadito is a different, flavorful variation of traditional mojito. Food is yummy, service is great (been there x2), & the tunes are good too! I wish that all the canned beers were 16 oz though, otherwise no complaints and will recommend to all my (one) friend(s)--haha.

    I said Fair for overall as when I went to book, we could not book a table larger than 6 people and no one emailed me back or texted me back as it said they would on the website. That was really frustrating and would actually keep me from going back there as it was a hassle to book 2 tables of 4 and then have to explain it when we got there. The website even said they would text or email back. Other then that, the music was a bit too loud for us to hear each other during our lunch, we thought about asking them to turn it down but just didn't find the server at the right time. Food was amazing and our server was great.

    Waitress had an attitude, kept forgetting to bring one drink and blaming bartender being too busy, then made us to feel that she took It off our bill was a favour to us. She needs more training or seek other employment as we won’t want her serving us next time.

    This was my second visit to Surfy Surfy! The staff are wonderful and very kind! Atmosphere is very fun and upbeat. There are very limited dairy free/vegan items on the menu, which make it challenging to enjoy a selection.

    I think native tongues is comparable to native tongues, another favourite of ours. the margaritas are fantastic! I’ve tried the campfire and coconut and both are delicious! The tuna cerviche is delicious, guacamole could use more flavour. The tacos are more expensive then native tongues but the flavours are fantastic! The pork, potato and fish are my favourite. Don’t miss this place, it’s got a great vibe, friendly servers and great food!

    Went to Surfy Surfy at Chinook Centre Mall in Calagry, AB. Have been before, make reservations all the time on open table which states "celiac, no gluten". Tonight (Tuesday, Oct 4th), made a reservation for my mom and myself (my mom is also a celiac). Our server seemed very aware(especially after I restated we are celiacs and it is an allergy) and assured, yes, that the chips and chicken tacos are GF. Again, have been before and agreed that sounds right and had these items before. Tacos come out and both my mom and I thought, these taste different then before...also there seemed to be something "crispy" in the tacos. The manager comes over to ask how everything was and I asked that the tacos taste different and they are GF correct, since we are celiac. She panicked and said no...these are NOT gf, they are flour tortillas and had fried (not gf) crispy things. She removed our items and went to find out what happened. Long story short, our waiter did not type in "an allergy" nor "GF - Celiac". The manager apologize a lot and did comp our whole meal (and wine), which we appreciated though the damage was already done. As I am writing this, I'm in extreme abdominal pain and know tomorrow won't be great. I know they felt bad and I do appreciate their efforts to make amends, however, I will not be returning soon till they train their staff with the knowledge that celiac disease is a disease and people DO SUFFER when these mistakes happen.

    We ordered quesadilla for 4 year old daughter and the chicken was a bit spicy for her so server replaced it with a cheese quesadilla instead without any hesitation. I love when restaurants value the customer experience.

    We were a party of 4 two people ordered bowls. This is by far the worst food I have had in a long time. My Beef bowl was full of mayo. The garnishing was done with an old black stale avocado. When shown to the server. She apologized and charged $1 extra for the hot 🔥 sauce. I will not recommend this place to anyone.
