Melissa's: Melissa's Missteak, No Mistake
We chose Melissa's as it was across the road from our hotel and because we love steak. We were NOT dsappointed. The service was a little slow but it was very busy at the time so understandable and the food definitely made up for it. The menu is varied, if you like steak or seafood I would definitely recommend it. As well as full meals, they also serve combinations - for example I had a 6oz steak as well as Hunter's Chicken. My boyfriend had a 6oz steak with a lobster tail and garlic butter. Both were served with chips, vegetables, salad, your choice of sauce for the steak and bread.
Desserts were also fantastic - I had the Brownie Conspiracy (a real treat for chocolate lovers) which was HUGE! And my boyfriend had the New York Cheesecake (see my favourite dish).
Favorite Dish: For dessert have the New York Cheesecake with Fruit topping, even if you're not usually a cheesecake fan! It's soft and creamy and the raspberry topping is divine!

Melissa's Missteak: Alberta Beef
Melissa's has an old supperclub feel. The waitresses are a little bit older and saltier than the precocious teens that are common at trendier spots. Dinner will come with breadsticks, rolls, salad and a trolley of salad dressings. I selected the biggest steak on the menu (a t-bone or porterhouse I believe) while Becky opted for the trout and petit filet. The only starch suited to such a dinner is bake potatos, sour cream and chives. The wine selection was meager but adequate. For dessert several pies were on offering including blueberry and bumbleberry--we were chastized for decling the ice cream. When only beef will satisfy, Melissa's is up to the task. But don't expect anything but old fashioned cooking.
Favorite Dish: It would be silly to order anything other than the Alberta beef.
