Restaurants in Calgary

Top-quality beef from Alberta's vast herds is the must-try speciality in Calgary. You'll find it served up in restaurants across the spectrum, from downtown high-fliers like Caesar's steak house to more casual spots like Buzzards Restaurant & Bar. You'll find ethnic restaurants in Chinatown and along 17th Avenue. Restaurant hours vary greatly, although last orders are generally 10pm. Some downtown restaurants don't open on weekends. A 15% tip is recommended.
