Steakhouse
For all parties of 6+ guests. Please call to book your reservation.

Dine on fresh sustainably-sourced seafood, wild game meats and more. Our casual setting and inviting atmosphere is ideal for grabbing a bite to eat with friends or family.

Big Fish offers food such as a seafood chowder, smoked oyster sliders or chili-glazed frog legs that make for flavorful appetizers. Guests can feast on an entrée of pan-roasted walleye with wilted spinach, fish tacos topped with tomato-mango salsa or a lamb and lobster burger. An oyster bar as well as delicious house-made desserts are also available.

Open Range embodies the essence of our city; cutting edge, but comfortable and unpretentious. Open Range mixes modern with tradition, serving every cut you would expect but preparing them with interesting variations of flavours. We offer locally raised beef, elk, bison and game prepared in an easy going Southwestern style. We are one of Calgary's premier steakhouses with multiple awards and accolades.

    I've never written any bad review however this was the first time we've experience this. We went there to celebrate Mother's day. We got there 15 mins early since our booking was at 11:30 am. They redirected us on the high seating however I preferred a booth. I saw the booth was open but the lady wasn't able to make a decision right away telling me there was no other seating besides the high seating, good thing a guy came and said that the booth is now available. We ordered for the 4 of us we waited for more than 45 minutes before the food arrived when it arrived , my uncle's food was served cold so he asked the server to return his meal to replace with a hot one. He ordered for sunny side and he got over easy. His potatoes were still cold and mentioned that his steak was like a horse meat as it's not tender . I ordered for a seafood chowder but it was served just when I was done with my meal. My potatoes were cold too and over cooked but didn't bother since I was so hungry .I had to ask the server where was my soup was, and then she realized that it wasn't served. I also ordered fresh shucked oyster that wasn't served since my mom wants to experience eating it. When my soup arrived I didn't have the chance to finish it as I saw they gave us the bill when I wasn't done eating as I came back from the washroom. Good thing they didn't charge me for my uncle's meal however we were trying to celebrate a special mother's day and got dissatisfied with the service and the food over all. My uncle talked to the staff and mentioned about the mishap . We had to go to an ice cream parlor to cool down . I had chosen this place thinking we will have a good mother's day celebration and got dismayed. As a manager who works in hospitality hotel, if that was me , I would have gone to the table and apologized and perhaps do a free dessert or something to bring the mood up. Anyways we will charge it to experience.

    not amazing but a nice restaurant and patio. our steak was a bit charred, lobster was a bit overcooked and when we came in for our reservation the hostess wanted to seat us at the booth closest to the entrance until we asked for another table. It was empty when we went and it had a nice atmosphere.

    Going back soon! Food is the thing!! Huge menu and the chef’s creative edge makes every item a gem. From our calamari appetizer to Artic char and my all time favorite…pecan pie. There is seating and patios on two levels and free parking in the basement. Best to make reservations ahead of time.

    Had an amazing dinner with friends celebrating at 60th birthday. We were all impressed with the restaurant. The menu was fantastic, the food absolutely delicious, and great value for the money. The decor and service were just as wonderful. This is a great place for a special occasion as well as for casual dining. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone - it is definitely a must try!!

    Ordered the crab and lobster toast, was okay but lacked seasoning. Server just stopped coming to our table. We chatted for an hour, so that was fine… but would have liked to order another drink.
