Calgary steak restaurants

by poppyfav

My husband and I will be staying in Calgary next week (6-10 July)
We would like to have a good steak dinner, any recommendations for a restaurant please.
I have read comments on the Metropolitan Grill which looked promising,but noisy and for a younger crowd (we are seniors !!)
All help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

You can check the Chowhound forums; there's always a running debate about the best steak in Calgary ;o)

http://chowhound.chow.com/boards/57

I make my own steaks at home. However, we've had great Prime Rib and Steaks at Le Villa. It's located in the suburbs, but the decor is extremely nice and the food is a little pricey, but worth the cost. They also have a sun room which is nice to dine in:

I would skip Metropolitan Grill for a steak, I didn't think their steaks were all that good.

Hy's is the best to me

Thankyou all for replying to my request.
We are staying downtown without a car, so unfortunately the suburbs are out.

Looked up Hy's and it is closed-up !!!

Looking forward to our trip and the stampede.

Jean.

Try the Chicago Chop House. You can go to Ruth's Chris, but it's US beef, not local if that's important to you.

Also, try Caesar's

Travel Tips for Calgary

Eau Claire Market

by mht_in_la

This indoor market has plenty of restaurants, a couple of theaters, and numerous stalls selling a variety of fresh and gourmet foods. Here you can shop, dine, or simply people-watch. Local radio station was doing a live broadcasting from here, promoting the movie "The Hulk" (June 2003).

Winters in Calgary

by Unknownsu

Since I was raised in Winnipeg, the Calgarian winter seems a bit tame. However, temperatures can reach -35C so precaution is very necessary. The Chinooks! God bless the chinooks. Chinook winds are westerly dry winds which can increase temperatures dramatically. On Jan. 11, 1983, the temperature in Calgary rose 30°C (from –17°C to 13°C) in 4 hours.

A Banner City

by penumbra

I’m not sure when it happened, but there are banners hanging from the streets and bridges in Calgary. It used to be before Stampede, they’d decorate the city by hanging red and white banners of horses from light polls around the city. After Stampede, they’d take the banners down. Now the city is using banners to spruce up some of older but newly revitalized streets. Why they’re decorating the bridges escapes me.

Here’s a list of where you’ll see some banners:

(1) 17th Ave S between 2nd and 14th St W. (a.k.a. The Red Mile after a play-off hockey game). There are a large number of bars, restaurants and art gallery’s for the 20-30 year-olds. There is even a website .

(2) Scarth Street (a.k.a. 1st St W) between 12th and 14th Ave S. Bars, clubs and restaurants usually only busy at night with the 18-25 year-olds.

(3) 4th St W between 14th and 26th Ave S. A mix of restaurants and coffee shops most likely to be visited by the 25-45 year-olds.

(4) Kensington from 10th to 14th St and along 10th St from Memorial to 3rd Ave. Probably the trendy district that started all this banner waving. There are more coffee shops packed into this small area then common sense should allow. Also some restaurants and stores for the yuppies (are they still called that?).

(5) Barclay Mall from the river to 8th Ave on 3rd St. A cobble stoned street that gets you from the downtown core to the river and back. Not much to do along the way.

(6) Stephen Ave Mall at 1st to 3rd St on 8th Ave. A street in the downtown core given over to pedestriana during the daytime. With restaurants, stores and open air carts, this street really hits its stride during Stampede. Frequented by office workers at lunch time, it’s popular with the homeless in the evening and on weekends.

(7) Inglewood along 9th Ave from 11th to 14th St E. One of Calgary’s oldest districts, it has a collection of interesting stores with, dare I say, antiques and other unusual items.

Packing List

by sherry_c

Besides your main luggage, a back-pack is great for biking and hiking, because it holds food, water, first-aid kits, and what ever else you may need. Bring running and/or hiking shoes, a hat and a rain coat. Comfortable shoes help to prevent blisters, which easily ruins a hike. If you plan on doing lots of hiking and other out-of-doors activities, bring bottles of water, granola bars, sun screen, and bug bite lotion. You always want to be prepared if you won't be near any stores. I recommend bringing many rolls of film, because you always wish you could take more pictures than you have film. Do not forget your bug-spray! Bug bites can easily ruin your stay if you plan on being out in nature. But please refrain from using aerosol cans, as it ruins the world for all of us.

Slippery Slopes

by penumbra

There are about ten ski resorts within a two hour drive of Calgary but you don’t have to leave the city limits to strap on some boards. Canada Olympic Park hosts a series of hills for skiing and boarding. While not the same a skiing in the mountains, it’s a excellent place for beginner’s lessons. The hill is floodlit at night so it’s easy to get in a couple of hours on the slopes after work.
