    Amazing server, fantastic meal. Nice surroundings. Cheesecake was so so good. Took off one star because one of the hostesses seemed snotty about us having made a reservation for two - having never been before, I was going with better safe than sorry as we had a very specific window of time due to other commitments. But every other detail was great.

    We wanted to try a new place and liked that the restaurant uses local food in its menu. We had a good server and there was effort put into presentation on the plates. Everything we had was pretty good but not really impressive. Steaks were a bit tough and a bit over cooked, salad was meh. Looking again at the menu, I think they probably do bar food pretty well with good flavours so if I went back, I would stick to that and not get my hopes up for good steak and seafood or pasta.

    The staff were very friendly. The food wasn’t that impressive. The fries came out cold and I wasn’t sure if it was from the random cold pickled veggies (although very good) plopped on top or because they were undercooked. The sauce that came with it was amazing even though it tasted more like a lemon tartar sauce rather that a sriracha aioli. The wings were good maybe slightly cold. The Buffalo Chicken fried spring rolls were absolutely disgusting. When she brought them out one of the rolls looked like something crawled out it because half the filling was gone. I took a bite of one of them and instead of a nice creamy aftertaste, it just tasted curdled. The Avocado prawn spring rolls were ok but the technique of keeping the rice paper together needs to be worked on. It seemed like they just tucked for presentation and hoped for the best. Overall not a Happy dance food experience and probably would not be back.

    Was there on Wing Wednesday. Wings were good, tasted fresh, great value. Found the menu in general a bit pricey, dessert choices very basic and no options for non-dairy. That being said, the list of white wines was basically sold out and down to 3 choices, of which 1 expensive and one rather special. Rosé sold out. Value for money therefore overall only a 4. Liked the atmosphere, and staff was nice.

    This was our first time to this restaurant. It was recommended by a coworker. The service was horrible. Waited almost 30 min for our appetizer to have our main meals follow before we even took a bite. The waitress only came back once to ask how things were and we had to send one of our streaks back to the kitchen as it was over cooked. Had to flag the waitress down so we could order more drinks. She gave us our bill and after 20min waiting to pay finally had to ask the hostess to find her as she couldn't take the payment for the meal. Will never recommend or return to this establishment.

    We had extremely god service. The menu has lots of options including breakfast until 1 pm. There was a small mistake in our order, which the server offered to correct immediately. We accepted what was delivered and it was still delicious so no issue as far as we were concerned. Would definitely eat here again

    Service was exceptional, the appetizers were awesome but our main course(s) (four of us dining) were nothing special, and seemed to be sitting under a warmer for some time before we received them. We all tried very different menu items and no one was overly impressed with their dinner. We left disappointed.

    Attended for lunch with our graduating son. Service was really good, which is as surprising as the place was packed with a healthy patio. This is our favorite watering hole, reliable, tasty, and good value. Also probably the best patio in town. Thanks for a great meal with the extended family!

    Went on Sunday for brunch with my parents who are rather senior. Seating isn't terribly conducive for older folks but managed to get them into the elevated booths. Our server was very pleasant, friendly, attentive and helpful. The food was excellent. We mostly had appies and salads as the entrees were large for lunch time. The Buffalo chicken spring rolls were very tasty (surprisingly creamy). The spare ribs and citrus chicken salad were very well done. The red pepper bisque soup was slightly spicy and very flavourful. Overall a very pleasant meal.

The three of us - our friend who lives in Red Deer, and the two of us - who reside in Edmonton, will most definitely be returning in the future, and recommending the restaurant to friends and family. It was a pleasant experience from beginning to end. Thank you!!!!! Larry & Beverly MacInnis, and Gail Watt

    We went to The Granary to celebrate my birthday while we were in Red Deer for a conference. The wait staff were all lovely, the ambiance was nice (a bit more “pub” than “fine dining” with a tv showing sports). We ordered the calamari and blooming onion to start. The flavours were good, however the calamari came out mostly in one tangled lump of tentacles - and the big lump was raw and fishy smelling in the middle, with gooey batter. The blooming onion was overdone on the outside and raw onion in the middle - again, good flavour but maybe their oil temp was too high. My sirloin Oscar was alright, though I was hoping for more flavour. I often don’t expect restaurants to truly cook my steak rare when I ask for it, and this was no exception, with a medium-rare result. My husband’s pork chop tomahawk was alright as well. Nothing “wowed” him. They were very kind. The drinks were good, and it was nice to get out. Nothing was worth writing home about. I’d probably go back for a regular lunch, but would look for somewhere else for a special occasion.

    My daughter recommended the breakfast menu to me so we decided to go for a late Mother’s Day brunch. My French toast was cold ( the butter wouldn’t even melt on it) as was the syrup. The bacon tasted like dead pig. My husband had the crab eggs Bennie and there was hardly any hollandaise sauce. His eggs were over cooked. Basics like salt and pepper, ketchup and hot sauce had to be requested. And the server had major b.o. So disappointing!

    The Granary Kitchen is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. We love the food and always have great service. Our server was Ryley, who we've had before, and she is exceptional! Great recommendations and always on time for what we want/need! We actually saved room for dessert this time and the sticky toffee pudding and berry cheesecake are to die for. We've liked all the entrees we've had here - never a bad choice. We arrived at 4:30 pm this time and it was perfect if you want a quieter experience.
