John Patrinos and his family offer meals to please everyone in their thriving, stand-alone Canmore restaurant with plenty of parking out front. The menu includes Alberta beef (Patrinos is known for prime rib), Greek and Italian dishes, seafood and pizza. Daily specials like Wednesday wing deals are popular.
The dining room features big windows (with a Three Sisters mountain view) and skylights that drench the rosewood décor with natural light. There is a patio with the same mountain vista, and a pub with big screen sports, pool tables and daily drink specials. Pool games are 50¢ all day Sundays.
