It was way too expensive for what we got. The portions were very small and charging extra for additional popcorn when we were told popcorn was included and we only got 1/2 full bags was very disappointing. Furthermore we bought pop while dining but when we went for the movie portion we were told we had to REPURCHASE more pop and that refills don’t transfer. What? So you could make 2$ more? That seems overly petty and pretty cheep considering all in we spent over 170$ there for 2 people. I was not impressed in the slightest

From the Arts all excellently prepared and presented. On top of this, they have a decently stocked bar, to find that accompanying drink to go with your lunch or dinner. On top of all this, their use of locally sourced food and herbs grown right on site make it a big plus.

Having never been to Heritage Park before after living in Calgary for 4 years we decided to visit and booked in for lunch at the Selkirk too. We were done a little earlier than expected at the park but they were able to seat us. I found it surprising that at lunch time on Thanksgiving Sunday it was very quiet. Service was great. Husband and I had the fish and chips. It wasn’t anything amazing but it was tasty. I wish I’d worn a sweater as it was pretty chilly. But otherwise it was a nice visit and the prices were really reasonably for a nice looking restaurant. I would eat there again. Thank you.

We chose to go there because they advertised a Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday, Oct 10/20. But when we got there we were told we could only order off the luncheon menu. This was NOT what the website said. We could have gone to any fast food drive-in and had the same meal. We were VERY disappointed and we were NOT the only ones to complain about the same issue.

Service and ambience was great. It was calming to dine outside on a fall weather. Food could be a little more surprising. It was the same as every other semi-upscale dining place. Dessert was not as good as we hoped.

Other than an unfriendly waiter we had no complaints (I’ll give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt this time). Food was very good as always. Half price bottles of wine on a Saturday night suggest this place is struggling. I would hate to see it close.

We first were sat in the most rickety old chairs from the 50's. Then we got the wrong order and I never did get salad dressing but balsamic vinegar which was for my girlfriends fries. No condiments were brought.

High level of cleanliness inspired a sense of confidence and safety. Spacing was excellent and in compliance with pandemic management protocols. I would like to see more variety of Big Rock products, especially Scottish Heavy Ale. The appetizers are fantastic, especially the cured meats and cheese platter. The special was prime rib, and it was truly a special taste sensation with portions that were just right. I wanted cheesecake but was very pleased with the apple strudel desert. I hope we can keep returning for many years to come.

Best kept secret in Calgary. Reserve early as the sittings fill up quickly. Salmon could be less done. Crab cakes are ok, however the presentations are very good. I thought the fish and chips were very good. Wine is very good selection. Just a few winkles to be ironed and this could be one of the top restaurants in Calgary.

Two of us had salads and we felt the salad could have had more ingredients besides spinach. It was mostly spinach with a few other veggies, not much dressing. I had salmon on top which was delicious and my friend had chicken which she too said was very good. My other friend had soup and didn’t comment.

Staff seemed frazzled and disorganized. More alarmingly a random stranger appeared uninvited at our table and was extremely agitated. It appeared he was in some sort of mental crisis. No staff came to our assistance during this 15+ minute exchange. When this troubled man left our table finally, then staff approached to inquire if we were ok. I informed staff that they needed to call 911 because this man needed medical assistance, and to call an ambulance. Staff did not. They stated they had notified security instead. Security officers did not appear nor attempt to assist this troubled man. The whole experience made our visit to Selkirk Grill not a good one. I am not certain I would choose this restaurant next time. Every business can have a bad day, but this particular day was so bad on so many levels.

Mostly full on a Saturday evening as we celebrated our wedding anniversary; the service was never rushed, the food excellent and the staff friendly. Selkirk Grill's unique decor and times-gone-by ambience added to an enjoyable special evening for the two of us.
Our window table allowed us to enjoy a view to Heritage Square as the old style lighting came on with dusk.
