    I booked a table online and it in the reservation it notes that there is a $20 per person no show policy. We got there and we were the only people in the whole restaurant… No reservation was needed and I would have been very upset had I’ve been charge if we didn’t show up and the restaurant was completely empty. The food was very good the servers were pretty young and unexperienced but very nice and friendly. We would go back here again!

    ONE98EIGHTResponded on June 28, 2022Thank you for the review Wendy. Being on a stretch of a busy highway it is very difficult to gauge the number of people dining at the restaurant and also Sundays are usually are busiest day of the week. Somedays we go from 1 table to a full restaurant in a matter of 10mins and we have had to turn people away as we cannot physically accommodate any more people both inside and on the patio. You did a right thing by booking an early table as usually we are pretty packed up by 10am. Regards

    We stopped on our way home to Calgary from Banff and decided to try this place. Unfortunately we walked away disappointed. Our meal took over 40 minutes to be delivered and others who had come after us received their food first. When asked what the problem was we were told they only make one meal at a time. Perhaps our order got lost? My eggs Benny was alright and I enjoyed it, the husband wasn't keen on his steak and eggs at all. The eggs were over-cooked and the potatoes greasy. The service was friendly but certainly not attentive. I think this restaurant has great potential and it has a really interesting menu but their systems need significant improvement.

    ONE98EIGHTResponded on June 2, 2022Thank you for the review Loula. We are extremely sorry for the experience you encountered at our restaurant. The wait time during a busy service period is pretty normal especially. We are sorry if the eggs and the potatoes were not upto your liking.Nonetheless, we are sorry for the experience you had and hope you give us another try. Regards Anand

    Honestly amazing. We went for breakfast with our 6 month old. The food was INCREDIBLE. And the owner even mashed up some strawberries for our little girl so she wouldn’t feel left out while we ate. The fresh squeezed OJ was to die for and the short rib eggs Benny was the best breakfast we’ve ever had. We HIGHLY recommend. Thank you for the amazing food, service and experience.

    The service was terrible! We were not even served water for almost 45 minutes of being seated and our drinks took an hour to show up. Food service was even slower! After all of this I was expecting the food to be delicious, but that was also disappointing and not flavourful and was definitely over-priced.

    ONE98EIGHTResponded on January 25, 2022Thank you for the review Diner. We apologize for the delay in serving water. Can you please tell us what you had ordered as we take this accusation very seriously. Our drinks/food are made to order and a full restaurant may delay the time. Our prices are cheaper than what they actually should be for the quality of products we use for. FYI there has been a significant increase in pricing everywhere. Again we apologize for your bad experience and certainly not what we want our guests to have.

    Exceptional! You are probably looking it at the reviews thinking it can’t be that good - but trust me, it totally is. We had an amazing meal. It’s worth the drive, and if you are in Dead Mans Flats - you need to support this great local restaurant. Amazing, friendly service, and the best food I’ve eaten in a long time. Support local! Eat here - we will be back and tell all our friends. The $40 set meal was incredible value for the quality of the food we ate.

    Went here yesterday for brunch when we saw the numerous 5 star reviews and pretty slick website. This is your warning to not fall for it. The surroundings are cold and bare. We waited 50 minutes for an omelette and a Benny and then I think we only got it at that point because we had to ask for it as we had somewhere to be. To be fair, when it finally arrived it was quite tasty but lukewarm and portion sizes were small. I’m actually convinced I read reviews for the wrong place.

    ONE98EIGHTResponded on December 7, 2021Thank you for the review NBoDO. We appreciate the honest feedback as we believe they only make us better and help us get a better understanding of the things that sometimes just get missed. We apologize for the wait time. We cut down on our portion sizes after a few months of guest feedbacks. . Please send us an email at anandkelkar@one98eight.ca. We would love it if you gave us another chance to make this right and for you to experience the 5star reviews that made you decide to visit us.
