Comfort Food
We’re Last Best Brewing & Distilling, Calgary’s most unique brewpub, and the fourth location in the Bearhill Brewing Family of Breweries.It’s our privilege to be the community liaison for beer, and beer culture, and we don’t take this role lightly. The beers we make are a direct reflection of the values and personalities of you – our customers and our community. We believe that pubs should be hubs that bring people together; a place where we can grow community, and the culture of beer, in a fun and interactive environment.

Our beers are fresh and delicious because we make them in-house using the best ingredients for everything we produce. Which isn’t hard here in Alberta – we are literally surrounded by a sea of barley, making (in our opinion) Calgary the Last Best opportunity for the craft brewing industry and brewers like us.

    This is my favourite place on so many front - my favourite restaurant, my favourite microbrewery, my favourite place to watch a hockey game, my favourite place for a special dinner, my favourite place for a work function, my favourite place for excellent service, and the list goes on. I am such a fan of LB that I should work in marketing for them. Time and time again, they have met and exceeded expectations and quality from my visits there before, last night was no exception.

    We were here on NYE. Our server (Johnny if I remember correctly) was amazing. This makes me realize I am getting older but I greatly appreciated that the music wasn’t super loud. There was a DJ playing great tunes that we could enjoy while also talking to each other without yelling. We had a really great night!

    We went to Last Best before heading to a show. We had a glitch with our timing and had to cancel our food order. Our server and the manager couldn’t have been any nicer. They made a situation that could have been very uncomfortable into one where we left happy and will definitely go back again. Great selection of food and beverage options.

    We really wanted to like this place. The ambience is perfect - it's a really inviting, almost cozy cabin vibe which we loved. We waited at the door to be seated (per the sign and because we had a reservation) for longer than we would have liked. We're eventually awkwardly greeted and brought to our table. Our server was prompt to our table with water and a beer sampler, but was again slightly awkward, did not make conversation or tell us much about the menus. We ordered drinks and appies while we waited for the rest of our party. The appies were great (cheese dip and the dry ribs). The other couple joined us and waited quite awhile before we flagged someone down to get our server. We were then informed our server had left and this was our new server. Weird. But okay (weird in that we were not informed prior to and that we had to flag her down for her to come to our table/introduce herself as our new server). We ordered more drinks and our meals. The chicken burgers looked amazing. But the chicken was not great and the burger just fell apart when trying to eat it. The brisket was okay - but nothing to write home about. The side Mac and cheese however was fabulous. The Thai bowl had amazing potential but was too salty (like where it's like spicy salty) so was happy to be able to wash it down with gin. Overall, I would say it was a mediocre experience but wouldn't necessarily write the whole place off as I do feel they were having an off night.

    There is pub food and then there is last best pub food, we arrived to find small samplers of one of their many inhouse brewed beers. 7 of us dined during a business meal and everything from the Brisket, to the Thai bowl to the Last best power bowl (best we have ever had), was incredible. Service is always on point, I have been here on busy weekend nights and it never disappoints. This will be our new go to lunch spot 10 OUT OF 10

    The Craft beers they have are great. Good building layout and great patio section. Food is not that good. No one should make a Caesar salad with Kale! Call it a Kale salad. And Pizza was average at best.

    Service was terrible. She didn’t advise of specials or happy hour or soup. Just asked if we wanted to order. When I asked about drinks; she told me to scan the QR code and read. Someone else brought our food, picked up plates and wine/beer glasses and then we sat at an empty table for 30 minutes before I just got up and went near the bar to find someone so I could pay and leave. We made a reservation and hoped it would be a good first experience. I wouldn’t go back or recommend it. We dine out weekly and haven’t had service that bad in a very long time.

    Food was phenomenal but learned I am definitely not a fan of new age craft beers. Table reserved was in a high traffic area but the attendance from the waitress was on point. Good location for a date or group event but not a location if you’re looking for something more intimate.

    Very poor service. It was a busy evening but the sever was not very good. Brought the wrong drinks, did not come back to check on drinks did not bring the bill for an extended time period. Food was adequate, wings were over cooked, pickle chips were soggy and presentation was poor. Chicken wings were presented with a dip spread on the corner of the plate, by the time the plate arrived at the table, most of the chicken wings were in the dip.

    Right from walking in until we left we had a great time! Service was top notch and our server was excellent in explaining the different beers that they brew in house. Nice variety of menu options (beverages and food). The food was hot when it came out and delicious. Would recommend for a fun evening out.

    This is a favourite special or important event place for me, and sure enough at this visit it was a challenging time for my brother and I to get together. It might seem funny to say, but being at LB helped let us focus on what we had to talk about while making sure everything else was being taken care of, and it was a comfortable environment to be there for all of it. Thanks LB for being you.
