The Hat Resto Pub
Food was awesome! We were skeptical because the place was empty but we would definitely go there again.
Great historical pub, Hostess and manager's hospitality was awesome! Drinks were cold, food was very tasty, and a good time was had by all... not overly noisy like a lot of places, so easy to have good conversations!
Took my mother here while she was in town. She used to frequent "The Silk Hat" in the late 50's and I thought it would be fun. It was a slow night as we were about the only people there. Service was excellent! One hiccup was the seriously under-ripe avocado in my moms salad. It would have had to been cut with a cleaver so I'm not sure how it ended up on a plate. The manager comped a dessert for the avocado. Thank you.
I have never been here and I decided to try it out. We were going downtown to the fireworks and wanted something casual and affordable. This was so good on so many levels. Our service was great, the food was delicious and the price was so reasonable. The owner even offered to make us some free pouting for coming in. He was so welcoming to everyone and gave us a little history on it. We all agreed we would return!!
Excellent service, great ambience and diverse menu!
We were there for my birthday and the service we received was amazing I would definitely go back.
Very good food and service - would recommend - we went before a concert at Rogers Place -
Great place to have a couple drinks and some food, good location and not too busy or loud.
Not informed of a private party taking up over half the lounge, when we made the reservation or arrived.
Waited over 5mins for a server to take us to our reserved table, than took over 10minutes for her to return with menus and to take our beverage order.
When we asked another waitress for menus, she said she has a 75person group and can't help us. Very poor attitude & service.
Drink & food took way too long once ordered. Had to order multiple drinks at once in order to not let them run dry.
Food order took almost an hour to receive, but was good expect the salads.
They need to hire more wait staff!
Had the sirloin with goat cheese salad again. It was prepared well and met expectations!
Jodi is a great server and the food is always as ordered, hot and in a timely fashion.
Good fast service prior to a concert downtown. Tasty food and fairly priced drinks!
I love The Hat. And not just because it's the old Silk Hat restaurant on Jasper Avenue, with that original neon sign hanging on the wall. The food is well made (no fillers in the burgers, marinated chicken in the chicken burger) with a great selection - salads, soups and pasta too. There's a nice selection of cocktails and beers too. It's perfect for dinner before Oilers games; we go there for dinner and then walk to the game.
3 out of 4 loved their meals. 1 was a bit disappointed. They were very busy due to DDW, but seemed to handle it well.
We also enjoyed the cheesecake dessert!
For an extra $3 I'd expect more fries. No idea why extra when different fries same price ala carte. Both table next to us and we were sharing a burger. Theirs came cut in half, ours not! Why can't they split it and bring two plates? For $20 the burger should be extraordinary not just oksy
We had business to discuss at a pre-game meal & it was perfect. Everthing was great - casual setting & the food excellent (the California chicken burger was amazing). Very pleasantly surprised & will return again soon. I also appreciated our server seemed to know when we in the middle of a conversation that was better "not interrupted". Thank you!!!! That alone - combined with great food made the overall experience excellent !
Our server, kristin, was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great Burgers!! Came for a pre-hockey game meal. Good food and service.
The food, service, and atmosphere were great. I will go back
Hummm yummy delicious food! Will definitely recommend =)
The HAT has a really nice long bar for people to drink and dine at. I sat at a booth with a friend for lunch. We both very much enjoyed our meals. I had a chicken fajita wrap with sweet potato fries which was delicious! I would definitely go back.
Went for cocktails, had a good selection. Food was new and up to date. Got what you paid for. easy for a casual dinning or a good date night.
The food was delicious and the service was good. The food was brought out promptly and we were never left unattended for too long without the waitress coming to check up on us. Overall great experience.
The Hat is my go-to before Oiler games. The food is fairly run of the mill pub style fare, however it is done well. The burgers are a notch above as well.
Service is nearly flawless every time.
Met a friend at The Hat for lunch. Food quality was very good as experienced in the past. Service was attentive.
We went with a few friends for dinner and drinks before going to an escape room. I really like The Hat because the service and food is both consistently good. Unfortunately it was the first time I ever brought my husband there and his burger was stone cold when it was served. The waitress promptly removed it from the bill, so in the end I don't really have any complaints. I've probably been here at least a dozen times and that was the first time it ever happened. I'll be back.
Enjoy the variety every time I visit the Hat. Friendly place and good food.
We enjoyed our meal at The Hat before going to Rogers Place. It was quick and very close to the arena. Would highly recommend it.
This was a good time and a great place to get together and chat. i would go back anytime, great service and good food!
food is excellent. outstanding service. seating is somewhat uncomfortable
This is the latest configuration of the Silk Hat, what is thought to be Edmonton's oldest restaurant. It remains a favourite for many reasons, including the fare and the accommodating and polite staff, and escapes both the false friendliness and also the plague of snootiness infecting many restaurants.
The food is great here however it can take a really long time to get your food. The only way I have received my meal within a reasonable wait is when I pre-ordered food for everyone.
Nobody in the restaurant is a good sign for bad food. Not recommended.
Went for a quick dinner with a friend that loves burgers and we throughly enjoyed our meal! Food, service and atmosphere was great. Apreciated the selection of ciders at a reasonable price.
The oldest pub in downtown Edmonton. Great ambiance, friendly and efficient service. Owner / manager came by a few times to make sure everything was good. Food is very good. Will definitely be back whenever we are in town.
The Hat never disappoints! Great food and service!
As always, thw food and service was excellent. Make sure to make a reservation or you are taking a chance at getting a table during lunch!
I am a regular despite other places nearby that offer similar fare.
Booked for a party of 10. We were one of two parties in the entire restaurant. Server had a poor attitude; she wasn't rude or anything, but gave the impression she would rather be doing anything other than serving our quiet get together. We felt unwelcome, and wont be returning for any future gatherings.
Food came out in a timely manner, everything was fresh, and tasted decent. No complaints there.
