John Patrinos and his family offer meals to please everyone in their thriving, stand-alone Canmore restaurant with plenty of parking out front. Patrinos is known for prime rib, which is why they serve Alberta beef. The menu also features a plethora of 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.
