    I have to say I was very pleased with everything the night we visited the King Eddy for the Meagan Dawson show. She was outstanding, very connected with the audience and showed awesome respect for her band members. The food was served hot, fresh, and very tasteful. The waitress and hostess were very polite, came by serval times to refill our water and coffee. I would certainly go back and would highly recommend the King Eddy to others to enjoy as well.

    We came to celebrate a birthday. The music and atmosphere was amazing, food was typical deep fried pub food. Just okay. Server was humourless but adequately took care of our large table. We will come back because the live music was wonderful but hope to try other items on the menu and have a different server.

    Food is good although a bit expensive. Usually the service is really good last night our waitress pretty much ignored us and I don’t know if it’s because there was only two of us and other tables had more people but it was very frustrating

    Great place and great service before a flames playoff game. Just got back from Nashville and this place had the best hit chicken sandwich I’ve ever had! Beer selection could include a couple domestic beers rather than all craft beer.

    We had tickets to duelling pianos later in the evening and came early for supper - the table we had was blocking a little bit of our view of the stage but it was still fine the food was good just your typical barfood - the ambiance is fantastic. A fun double date for sure we will be back!

    Been here a couple times. It’s a good space with quick friendly staff. This was before a Flames game so it was packed but everyone was hustling and we never had to wait long for attention. The skewers are very tasty.

    Absolutely awful stale & overpriced dessert and skimpy but delicious salad…caused gastro discomfort the whole next day! I regularly go to the King Eddy for music and although I’m not crazy about the food and think it’s overpriced, I often order something since I’m there at meal time. Nothing appealed to me on the menu so ordered a green salad. For $8, I got about 8 bites so expensive at $1 a bite! I was still hungry and a friend recommended the bread pudding, which she had enjoyed on a previous occasion. Our server said they didn’t have bread pudding anymore but there was in fact a diff flavour of bread pudding on the new dessert menu for $12, expensive! I ordered it since my friend said it had previously been tasty & substantial, about 2 inches thick. Everyone was shocked when it arrived and it was actually about 2/3 of one thin piece of bread that had been cooked some weird lumpy way, along with sauce. We all know what BP should be made of and what it looks and tastes like. There was so little bread that even though I poured sauce on each bite, there was about half the sauce left by the time I finished the bread. I requested another piece of the bread so that I could use up the sauce & because it was so skimpy we all thought it was a mistake, but my server said no, it is preportioned so I’d have to pay another $12 to get another one. 2 other employees came to ask me about it which was embarrassing and they offered no solution. No one at my table could believe that they would charge $12. Deicha, who works there, was performing that night and it was a special night for her - I would never have mentioned it to her but she caught wind of it and sent a red bottle of wine to our table, which was very thoughtful. She came to check and because I don’t drink wine she took the dessert off my bill. So nice of her but what a gong show. I’ve been sick all next day w gastro. Another big problem at the Eddy is The way reservations are set up but that’s another story.

    The call it brisket, it was pretty concerning when my wife poutine was too cold to melt cheese and she couldn't cut brisket with a knife. That said the beer was good the atmosphere was great and its nice and close to flames game

    I was looking forward to the Eddy as the last time I was there was 20 years ago! Reservations were made for 5PM table of 4 for a business/hockey game food/drink get together. Booked high tables but we given low near stage. Band for the evening were setting up sound and were playing a little loud but manageable. Sound check was not going well and the band seemed upset. This amplified complaining went on for quite a while, so uncomfortable. Ordered a platter for 4 appetizer and beverages. When done, we asked to order food and were told that we had to leave as a group of 100 were booked, so sorry but we couldn't order food? Asked if they could move us to another table but they wouldn't. Therefore, no-one had a meal and had to leave for the arena early. Had we known there was a problem we could have eaten earlier, or better yet, could have booked another venue. Not impressed with the service and communication here. On a positive note, sliders on the platter were good.

    The staff were very friendly. Our server was great. The menu is small but the food was really good….. fries weren’t fantastic though. Spring rolls could use a sauce on the side but they were pretty good on their own with a bit of pickled slaw. Drink menu lacks descriptions of the craft beer selections on tap so if you aren’t familiar with the beers they have you kind of have to take a stab and hope you get what you like. This is a fantastic spot to see live music. I’ve stopped here a few times after hockey games and the band was just finishing. Might be due to COVID restrictions. If they get a band up on stage for the post hockey game crowd this place would be a go to for the post game crowd.
