The food is good if you compare it to what you find in general at a cafeteria. We had the prime rib special and the meat was cooked well and the stuffed potatoes were good but other than that I felt like I was eating dinner in a cafeteria. Not even a decent dessert to try. I would not bother... More

Stopped after a visit to the Museum. Was 4 pm so not busy but served right away. Homemade soup special was awesome. So glad to see a Seniors menu for smaller portions. Would stop here again.

The food was wonderful. Liver and onions were cooked to perfection, chicken club had moist chicken. Exactly what I look for when I travel out of the main cities, local gems. Thank you for the wonderful lunch.

After some missed turns and close to 4 cold, miserable hours on the motorbike, we arrived at Yavis in Drumheller. As scruffy as the 3 of us must have looked, we were very quickly and warmly welcomed by the staff.

Having been recommended Yavis we were rather disappointed that the food and service did not live up to expectation. The mains of veal okay and salmon were strictly average.

We went for a celebration dinner, but the dinner wasn't really something to celebrate. Meats seemed like the pre-frozen kind, lettuce brown around the edges. My husband liked his liver an onions. I was served the wrong meal altogether. I had watery mashed potatoes ultimately. It filled the stomach, and wasn't too expensive, but the food was exactly average.
