One of Very few restaurants in the area that cater to Locally Sourced and Sustainable Alberta Ingredients. The Simply designed space is filled with natural light during the day and at dinner the ambiance is sophisticated, yet relaxed. The menus and features change regularily, and that is just one of the many reasons that locals and tourists alike return time and again.

Features of this Gem of the City are; a pet friendly patio, A small but well planned out wine list with some great varietals not seen everywhere, 16 draught beers, including 6+ rotating craft options, and probably the best burgers in town, as voted by customers.

Do not miss the casual and exciting atmosphere that is locally referred to as THE GRANARY KITCHEN.

We were looking for something different in Red Deer. We were pleasantly surprised with the menu and enjoyed our food. Bridget was an excellent server. We’ll definitely come again.

Took my kids there for dinner. We were all very happy with the menu! They have a kids menu for smaller kids but we ordered off the main menu. The kids loved the burgers, they both had the Rig Up burger. I tried the ravioli and it was very very good. Great service from Kara. She recommended the sticky toffee and it was so yummy!

Met some family here from out of town and everyone loved it! We were greeted right away and sat a nice semi private table so we could talk and catch up. Great lunch menu, salmon burger was so tasty. Service was top notch, kept our coffees full and hot, great service. This is our new go to!

This was our first visit to The Granary Kitchen and we were excited to try it as the menu looked phenomenal. The seafood linguine was delicious but the sirloin Oscar was extremely tough even though it was cooked properly. Our drinks were good and the speed of service once we ordered was very fast. If you’re going on a Saturday evening I recommend making a reservation as it was very busy in there.

We picked this restaurant from its website and the fact it uses sustainable local Alberta ingredients. The food was terrible. From small portions to inadequately cooked food, this restaurant did not live up to its reputation. We embarrassingly sent back three dishes which we could not pallet. The manager made things somewhat better but we left the restaurant frustrated, embarrassed and hungry.

The food was barely Luke warm, steak was chewy, caesar salad isn't made with kale and the caesar dressing was so salty I had to wash every bite down with water. Since we dined there, we have talked to 3 other people who had a similar experience. We dont eat out a lot, so very disappointing to have a below average meal for $130

We were a party of 12, seated us close to the doors, some cold air was blowing, couldn't even take our jackets off.
Chicken was raw, potatoes were hard in the warm potato salad, asparagus was tough and stringy.
Server never took dirty glasses or dishes off table. Bar drinks took a long time to be delivered.
Dessert was delicious.

Fun place to have lunch. Tomato pepper soup
flavourful but cool. House salad and grilled toast nice compliment. Good service and pleasant ambiance. Like Finn McCoull building continues to be cold.

We had a large group with children and they placed us in a more private area of the dining room that worked out really well. Service was excellent and prompt. Food was good.

While the staff were very apologetic this was the worst experience I have had in Red Deer. 8 of us all at at different times, it took 30 minutes to get a beer delivered. Our first guests sat at 6:10 and we did not leave until after 9 pm. What they did do right was apologize profusely, sent the manager over to our table and they gave us our meals for free. This was the first time that has ever happened so kudos to the staff and managers, that was very much appreciated.

Glad to see this place as busy as it is. Nice to see so many beers on tap also, including some great local craft options. This venue is a winner in our books. It’s the new go-to for my wife and I

Came with a few friends to try this place out. Totally worth it. Food was really great. It’s very cool that this place supports local alberta foods as much as possible. Everything tasted amazing. Service was great and the overall feeling of the place was good. We will return again soon, thank you!

The place was surprisingly quiet, given the Christmas season. But, it did take a while to get both our drinks and our food; when it arrived, the vegetables were cold. Our waiter appeared to be the only one serving half the place, so that might explain the slow service. The food was “okay” - not to die for...but okay. Prices are good.

Ease of booking reservations on line was excellent, table was ready when we arrived.
The waiter was overwhelmed with the amount of tables (12) he was attempting to serve.
We waited a very long time for service and the service once we ordered was very slow and missing the extra touch. Two of four meals were cold, and were sent back with the next meal coming out in stages.
We were compensated with a reduction in two of the meals and two desserts.
Would not recommend to friends or family.

2 of us ordered the blackened chicken. 1 was blackened with grill marks, 1 was white with bright orange spices on 1 side. Obviously never was near a hot surface, let alone blackened. Told it was the same dish then when almost done was told they didn’t do it right got half $ off. I never send back meals but... it tasted like a boiled chicken breast with spice on 2 side. Other meals cold and basically average. Probably won’t go back.

Started with a coffee and baileys because we were seated by a window cold with a draft. Drink was barley warm. Food was the same. Had the pork ribs, the sauce tasted like a no brand cheap bottom of the line Walmart special. Server seemed run off his feet. I will say the sticky toffee pudding came out piping hot on the sweet side but the best part of the meal.

Excellent food. Lots of choices especially for the meat eaters of the group. Lots of creativity in the presentation and taste combinations. It was a bit cold right beside the door. I'd get a table further from the entrance next time.

We went as an office for lunch. Our group was 9 people and we were delighted by the quick service and the quality of food. I heard many people in my group say it was one of the best "steak sandwiches, tuna melt etc." that they had ever had at lunch time. The meal was delicious and the pricing was very reasonable. Highly recommend the Granary Kitchen.

The food was amazing!!! While our server was nothing but pleasant it was incredibly busy and took a while to even place our order. There were a number of items not available, because it was so busy. This restaurant has always been very noisy (even before it became Granary Kitchen).

The service was not that good. It was not that busy either. The server spoke a million miles a minute. The food was plain and disappointing. I expected more from this place. I will not be returning.
