Customer Reviews

” Great food and service here! The happy hour menu is amazing and definitely worth the price. Everything we ordered here was great (Tuna Tiradito, Pizza, Burger, Duck fat fries). The restaurant itself is also very aesthetic! Would definitely come back. ” – Johnny Choi
” The Rooftop YYC! Such a pleasant experience. The ambience is really lovely, it wasn’t too crowded, and is whimsically furnished, I especially love the umbrella walkway. I was here as part of a small group of about 4 people. We got here kinda late and the kitchen had closed. We sat in our booth morosely, furiously googling, trying to find other bar/lounge options close by so we could go get something to eat. And then we got approached by Alex, one of the managers here. He was so concerned about the situation and tried to get the kitchen to make us something, anything. That didn’t work out, but Alex remedied the situation by comping us a free bottle of bubbly! What a guy. Incidentally, the next day was going to be the birthdays of one member of our 4 man party so the bubbly fit right in. We didn’t get food but the great customer service more than made up for it. And the dancing too, there was dancing ” – Toni Akinwale

3. One Night Stan’s Bar Room & Divery

Not every one of us feels comfortable in a super sophisticated area where you have to behave elegantly as everyone will stare you to death on sneezing loudly. If you’re one of those easy-going folks, this One Night Stan’s Bar Room & Divery is what you should try next. The bar has a relaxed, low-key atmosphere where you won’t get judged for whatever you are wearing or doing.

You can go there in your yoga pants, a three-piece suit, pajama bottoms, or anything in between. However, the fun is guaranteed as they are famous for playing the music a bit loudly and staying open till late at night (probably past your bedtime). Both the food and drinks are ready to serve and taste good enough to soothe your taste buds.

The best part is that the restaurant has a dog-friendly patio so you won’t have to leave your pooch at home! Don’t worry about him being bored since the server will feed your pet and give him chew toys to have a nice time when you’d be enjoying your drink.

Customer Reviews

” Cool patio(s). Friendly server. Good food. Bonus points for a dog-friendly patio. Only visited during the day but looks pretty lit at night. ” – Kaley Mae
” Have strolled past Stan’s a number of times and always was curious about this place. Finally paid a visit with a few friends and had a fantastic time. The staff is super welcoming and drinks were various and plentiful. The vibe is actually a lot of fun with great music, some board games, and a really cool decor. ” – Chris Allan

Customer Reviews

” I had the Charred Napa Cabbage Salad. I asked for chicken on it as well. It was so amazing, I really loved the crunch and flavors. The dish was filling. My waitress was super sweet and checked in on me at perfect times (I believe her name is Lane). The view is nice. It was a fabulous place to have lunch. ” – Kerry Gariano
” Most scenic rooftop patio in the city, and the only one we have found (so far) that doesn’t look out on a street or parking lot. With a view of the river and parkway across from Bridgeland, they don’t need much more. But they have it anyway. We didn’t sample the food, but they make it on that same patio from a charcoal grill. It’s a little on the pricey side, but the ambiance is worth it. ” – George Anderson

Customer Reviews

” We had a great experience at Tommyfield. Though it was a busy night, our waitress Kate was attentive, friendly, patient and thoughtful. She took time to make suggestions and chat with us and at no time did we feel rushed. The beer and wings were good, the patio comfortable, and the music at a good volume. We’ll definitely be back. ” – GG
” Great place to go. Patio is outstanding, and the wings, crab, and other specials on point. Good selection of beer. Highly recommended. ” – Jared Gudnason
