Burgers
Our first restaurant & bar opened in Marda Loop, Calgary, & even way back in 1997, it was comfortable, accessible & affordable. From the very beginning, OJ’s fell in step with exactly what it has always been about. A down-to-earth, down the street experience for all.

We never take ourselves too seriously. We love good food experienced in the company of true friends, in an atmosphere that fits us like a well-worn pair of jeans. It feels real here & that’s just fine by us.
No pretense. No frou-frou. Just craft beers, approachable wines & tried-and-true cocktails. All served up with the kind of fresh-made comfort food you crave again & again. To this day we still hand cut our fries, serve most of our entrées with two sides & pour our own OJ’s beer. So, come sit at our bar without having to lower yours.

We have been to Ojs many times always having a fantastic experience. It occurred to us that it really doesnt matter what section or what server because they will all be collectively looking after you. The definition of team. All front of house played a role. Our server was technically Antonina but we were checked on and prebussed by Justine, food delivered by Anto and Mac and while all were busy a round of drinks delivered by Bret. They all did the same for each other. They are an amazing group

We were seated at a small, high table between booths and the bar. It was an extremely high traffic area! All of the staff were constantly walking close to our table. Also, there were at least 10 food pick ups by delivery services that walked past us. The pickup should be at the front door, not in the back of the restaurant! It’s a pandemic!!
Food and service were good, disliked the bad seating in high traffic area. Next time I will refuse to sit in such a bad spot! I shouldn’t get such crappy seating making a reservation through this app!

During these COVID times I was impressed at how well organized the establishment was. Also the server MacLaine offered us alternative suggestions for our meals to make the food to our liking. Example: Hotty-Dilly-Yaki wings are now my favourite! The Manager (Sarah?) came to speak with us to ensure the service and quality met or exceeded our expectations. And they SURE did :)

Really nice quiet environment with really excellent staff. The food is amazing and the patio is nice. Not to mention the beers are cold too. Has become the new weekly wing spot.

When you have to keep requesting for the drink you ordered (two times) and don't receive it until you're already annnoyed. It wasn't a great experience this time. We won't be returning. ✌

My wife and I have been going to the OJ's on Ellerslie for years. It is our local, and we feel like we have walked into the Cheers pub. Many of the staff know us by name and will just ask us if we are having our usual drinks and food. sometimes we change it up just for the fun of it or because we want something different.
the food and service is always good and my wife and I feel that we have gotten what we paid for.
We always ask if Sarah is in and if she is and has time she will come over for a quick talk.
i have recommended OJ's to lots of friends and family.

It was so nice to finally get out and eat in a restaurant for a change finally! It turned out to be pretty quiet, but with all the to-go orders being filled, our food still came out in less than 10 minutes and was as delicious as usual! With taking our time, we were there for less than an hour.
