Been going to The Iron Goat for years but was so disappointed by the quality of the food but even more shocked at the cost. To charge $24 for a burger and only give one side was shocking. Unfortunately the experience and knowledge of how expensive it is will hamper my desire to return. Too bad because it was one of my favorite places to go before.

My wife ordered the fish and chips. The batter was mushy and uncooked so we sent the fish back. It took forever for a new plate to arrive. While I ate my dinner, they gave my wife French fries to eat. When the second order of fish arrived, the cook made sure it was cooked and I mean cooked. It was over cooked. The fish also had a strong fishy odor and taste (well prepared fish doesn't taste or smell like this). Even though they didn't charge us for my wife's dinner, our Valentine's dinner was a disaster.

I have to say we were extremely disappointed with this meal. We ordered the NY striploin and the fish and chips. Steak was ordered rare and arrived blue, veg was under cooked. The fish and chips were soggy and warm not hot. The coleslaw tasted old. My wine tasted like sulphur( cheap wine) I know it's bar food but we expected more. It's a shame because we are in canmore every weekend and this will not be a choice for us again.

The service and atmosphere were great. The food on the other hand was overall bland (needed more seasoning). I ordered a steak medium rare and it came out rare.

Ribs with yam fries and cornbread delicious; porketta was absolutely fabulous. Server was friendly, efficient and prompt with time for a little chat. Thank you Zenata, I hope I have your name right. Manager came by with a smile, as he did with everyone, to check on everything. Next trip through Canmore, we will look forward to another visit.

Fantastic! We really enjoyed the atmosphere and didn't feel too crowded, like at most restaurants. The server was really friendly and helpful with recommendations. We never felt rushed, but service was available when needed. The food was excellent. One of the best (of several) meals we've eaten in Canmore.

We have eaten at the Iron Goat many times. Usually the food and service are quite good. This time service and the food were the worst we have ever had. Our dinner arrived cold and our waitress did the bare minimum and seemed so disinterested that other waiters were having to help her section. The vegetables were cooked from the freezer, mash potatoes were dry and cold. Not sure we will be back for awhile. A disappointing experience for our New Years Eve dinner.

Second time here and once again food was amazing! Im vegetarian and usually there aren't very many options but here I don't have that problem. I had the polenta fries, cesear salad without meat and gardeners pie. They were all amazing! I was with a group and rest of them also loved the food. Our waitress was also friendly, and helpful. She came to see how were doing or top up our drinks at the right time. We will back and back!

A table reserved days in advance for a group of seven, shouldn't have been in front of the entrance door. Though a note in the reservation indicated Gluten Free requirements, the server had little knowledge of what was available or could be served per the GF requirement. The Malbec wine served was bad and tasted of vinegar, we asked for a new bottle to be opened however the servers returned stating she had staff try the wine and they said it was fine!! Who's correct the staff who are likely beer drinkers (presumption acknowledged) or a paying customer that often drinks Malbec wines. A new bottle should have been presented and opened at the table, instead the server ask us to select something else from the wine list!! Of the 4 steaks ordered, only two were correctly cooked. After the issue with the wine, we felt there was not point in speaking up, we'd likley be told they were good or have to wait for them to get cold while other staff agreed with the server. We'll not be returning to this restaurant.

Beautiful building and location, very cozy. Food was delicious, though they did mix up how we wanted our steaks done. Pricey, but if strongly recommend as a special night out

Had a super nice time the majority of everything was fantastic service was impeccable. The only thing I would change if I was in charge of the kitchen would be to only use fresh vegetables and not Frozen as the green beans were clearly frozen as they had zero taste.

We were in town for my husband's 50th birthday and had a wonderful meal at Iron Goat. From the moment we walked in, everyone made him feel special and the service was fantastic. We were too full to order dessert- which they had said they would bring out with a candle in it to surprise him - so they comped his glass of wine as a gift. It was so generous. Thank you for making the white-knuckle snowstorm drive from Kananaskis for the evening totally worth it! We can't wait to come back again in summertime and enjoy the view from those huge windows. Happy New Year, and thank you again for helping to make our evening special.

So underwhelming. After reading the reviews, we were excited to experience the Iron Goat. Server was very good. Bar order took forever due to bartender in training. 5 signature cocktails took about 15 minutes to arrive. Appetizers had arrive shortly after. Ordering a glass of wine with dinner however, arrived at end of meal. We were 5 in our party. Two dinners arrived first. A while later (5 minutes) two more dinners arrived. And another 6 minutes after that, the fifth plate arrived. Two orders of lamb shank (arriving at different intervals) lacked any taste in the mushroom risotto (it was served with and the lamb) was warm, not hot, leaning towards the area of cold. The meat platter contained very poor quality meat, except the duck wings which were very good. Ribs, bleh. The steak was perfectly cooked but topped with a tasteless creamed peppercorn sauce. Almost ruined the steak. Burger was presented very well, tasted good even though well done (can't really fault the laws). We come from from a foodie city (San Francisco) so I have to be a tiny bit forgiving when we travel. However, with the reviews on this place and the price of food, we expected so much more.
