Seafood
Dine on fresh sustainably-sourced seafood, wild game meats and more at Big Fish & Open Range, located in Calgary. Its 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.

    Since amalgamation Open Range and Big Fish, it's loud and not the cozy rustic spot for dinner. Our table was literally on top of the doorway and people don't respect your eating while waiting for their table. The wild boar wasn't medium, it was rare at the centre and lemon tart was chewy. Our server was fantastic!

    First time to Big Fish. Price value of food was very good. Ordered walleye as a main and was cooked perfect. The entire main dish was extremely under seasoned and even with a lot of salt still tasted bland. Missed a bit on presentation as the fish was placed skin down on the mashed potatoes which made it soggy. It was topped with bacon and some green type sprouts so it was impossible to each the bacon with the main without having a mouthful of the greens. Mash potatoes were supposed to be creamy but were actually quite dry. Calamari appetizer was average and slightly greasy from frying. Strange seasoning on top. Although the fish was cooked perfect the rest of the meal really missed the mark. Server was really nice.
