Food was amazing and the ambiance was very fitting for the menu and vise versa. The only complaint I have is that the waiter seemed a little condescending with his remarks. I realize he was wearing a face mask but that probably made it a little worse because you cant see facial expressions. Anyway, overall it was a pleasant experience. The hostess was full of positive energy and that was nice to see.

You will be taking how the food as they give you lots. My ribs were over cooked but the brisket was so tender, could have used a bit more seasoning. Defiantly worth a visit. If your a Vegan forget this place.

We chose Crowsfoot for my birthday party. It was myself and 9 friends. Everything was great and we had a great time however my friend had a hair in her Brussels sprouts, my chicken was over done and there was two inches of oil in the bottom of my tater tot bowl. I understand it was super busy and these things happen but I was a little bit disappointed.

Everyone at the table ordered something different and described their meal as over-the-top! The building itself is beautiful and makes for a really special experience. The service is efficient and friendly, I never sat with an empty drink.

In terms of honest observations (that didn’t diminish our experience): The space can get quite loud and it was hard to have conversations - particularly with hard of hearing family. I suggest you make your reservation before or after dinner rush. We also found the seating to be very squished - the chairs fit around the table but I don’t think they accounted for people sitting in those chairs. Our elbows were in each other’s laps. Consider asking for extra spacing if you have a large group.

Got the three meat platter was supposed to be enough for 2 people but portions pretty small and the corn bread, although tasty was so tiny. Meat tasted good but not enough smoke flavour. Waitress was new and she was really sweet.

My friends and I had a delicious lunch. Everyone enjoyed their meal and commented they would like to return. Our server Katherine was lovely and very efficient.
Took a trip through the little on-site store…delightful. A short drive to Conestoga and lots of parking.

We were here for my husbands birthday and he had wanted to eat here. He was pleased with the meal. I am vegetarian and found the options very limited. I understand that this is primarily a restaurant for meat lovers but there is often a member of any family or party who needs something different.
But generally our group loved it!

Our server (name ?) was very sociable and attentive to all our needs.
One member of our party works as a server out of the area and could have identified with any areas of concern had we had any.
The servings were quite generous and we all had enough for another meal!

Two of our dishes were poor. The macaroni and cheese dish was very bland and the ribs were overcooked, burnt and tough. The brisket and turkey were excellent.
Good craft beer selection. Months back we had the ribs on take out and they were good so last night was hopefully a blip.

My family and I had a great experience. Our first time, we had a great time, the food was amazing and the staff excellent. We had Tom as our server and he was beyond knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The food was delicious and the creme brûlé with the wafer with cyan pepper was amazing. It was my partners birthday dinner and they have a glass of champagne. It is more expensive but the amount of food you get it worth it! Will be going back for sure! Highly recommend!

If you love barbeque, you have to visit Crowsfoot Smokehaus in Conestoga. The atmosphere in the totally renovated building is first class, the service impeccable and the food is amazing! Our table enjoyed an amazing cheese and beer appetizer, schnitzel and meat platters of the best brisket I have ever had, pork butt and knackwurst sausage. 5* for sure. We will definitely go again and are telling all of our friends and family to try it soon!

Stephanie, our server, was wonderful! The service was great. Food delicious. We sat fairly close to the entrance. Even though there were double doors, people were holding the doors open while waiting for their table. The cold air kept us quite chilly as well as cooled our food.
All in all, I would definitely go back. Just sit in a different spot.

Sides could have been a lot smaller- less money! Ribs were dry and tough , pulled pork wasn’t bad, had better. Fries were good, nice selection of draught craft beer.

We all ordered different meals. None of us liked the food. Why so much spice heat. ?
Pickle chips pure salt. Couldn’t eat.
It may have been a simple case of it isn’t a restaurant for us.
Won’t return.

Hands down, this place is the best in the region for quality barbecue washed down with quality local micro beers and ciders. Every mouthful was thoroughly enjoyable and the staff are 100% passionate about the food and drink they serve. Let’s all support local!
