I first came here last week when I was visiting Calgary on a Holliday from the UK. We came in and had some pitchers and for a group of 11 young lads the service was spot on and the drinks we brought quickly, the atmosphere was perfect as it wasn't to busy and the music was good. Being impressed with... More

A surprisingly good burger and pub. There are dozens of these hipster restaurants around downtown, but the libertine seems to have its own unique vibe and food. Would recommend checking it out. Lots of room and tables to choose from, decent service.

We had lunch here with a few drinks and it was a great place. Comfortable booths with a lot of variety on the menu. The food and service were both very good. We were very happy as we just chose it at random walking down the street. I would recommend going there if you're looking for some casual food and... More

I have been here twice and both times I enjoyed some excellent food and great beer. The first time was on Monday night in football season and I ate upstairs where they had the game on with sound. I sat at the bar, service was excellent, and the pizza was very good. Very recently I sat downstairs and had the... More

Had my first raspberry beer here and enjoyed some nice burgers and friendly service on a busy street. Lots of tap selection and delicious fries as well as lunch specials.

This place is a must-try. If you're going to be hitting a bar or restaurant, there's no reason not to make it this place. I'm partial to the wings, but the other food is good too. Try a pint of the "Jerkface 9000" or "Velvet Fog".

We held our company Christmas party here. We had the second floor all to ourselves. The venue was a fun spot to host our party with the foosball table, golden tee game and darts. The food and drinks were great and the service was amazing. There was always a server asking if we'd like another drink just as the one... More

Had a salad and Mac n cheese. Dinner was good. Service was on the slower side as very large group but they did well. Averagely priced. Great location

Went to watch baseball on TV with supper. Beer menu is very good. Nachos tasty but be warned they put the guacamole on top. Too loud to hear the TVs but probably a good thing since the Fox announcers are so annoying.

We went here on Saturday night and were able to get a great table. Food is good but we found not a whole lot of selection. Good choice of beers and the service was excellent. We would go again.
