This Sports bar is in Martensville, about 10/15 mintues (drive) outside Saskatoon. You can catch Canadian football, American football, Soccer, Baseball etc. here.
We enjoyed a meal here. The meals weren't expensive and everybody in my party cleared their plates! Within my party, we ordered fish & chips, chicken fingers & chips, burgers and salads. As it's a bar, there are plenty of alcoholic drinks to choose from aswell as soft drinks and coffee which are free refills.
It's quite dark inside, there's a great atmosphere and it gets really busy (always a good sign!). The Sports Page also offers video machine games which you pay to play.
Broadway Cafe is another local's favorite. The decor is rather timeless since there's a mix of everything from 50's nostalgia up through 80's pop culture. On weekends, its a particularly popular place that often requires you to wait a few minutes for tables.
Favorite Dish: The breakfasts were fantastic. The ham and egg breakfast sandwich was good, the eggs Benedict was great, as was the daily specials. I'm always a sucker for the old style milkshakes and they definitely lived up to their reputation.
A Greek Restaurant in the heart downtown Saskatoon. Seating is available outside during the summer, otherwise you have to go downstairs, inside and then upstairs to get to the restaurant. Once inside, tables are available in an alcove to the right, overlooking the road or in the main dining room to the left. Service is prompt and friendly. During the week, the restaurant usually has other patrons but you should be able to get in without a reservation.
Favorite Dish: The attached web site provides and overview of the menu. The salads are available with blackened chicken which I would highly recommend. The chicken is very tender and melts in your mouth. The spices on the chicken are hot in your mouth and cool down only after your next taste of salad.
Park Cafe is not necessarily in the most scenic of neighborhoods, but that is part of the reason why it is a local's only type diner. The place has been around for a long time, has been written up positively in many reviews and after eating there I can see why.
The diner has old photos of the city, showing its development from the early days.
Favorite Dish: The breakfasts are true home made diner style. There's skillets, pancakes, steak and eggs, eggs Benedict, omelets and great milkshakes. Oh and daily made fresh fruit pies. Everything we sampled was good!
The restaurant is cozy, very clean and nicely decorated with ethnic artwork. I liked the informative page about Miramar (Burma) in the menu. There was a good selection of dishes. We were there for lunch. The portion sizes were great - we had lunch for the next day as well! Definitely recommended.
This is my favorite Coffee & Tea House in the city. The reason that I choose to go here first, than any other place in the city, is because there are magazines and newspapers. They have also games, such as domino, monopoly, toys for children...
You can find here desserts to die for, but also they have icecream, and very healthy lunch with your choice of soup or salade.
If you are my guest, this is the place that I am going to show you first, maybe because I feel like it is my living room where I gather with my friends and family on daily bases.
If you are a coffee drinker, I recomand this place to go and meet with the friends. It is located on 8Th. Street and it is very easy to find it. Most of the restaurants and cofee shopes in Saskatoon are located on 8th Street.
Burmese cuisine is hard to find in Canada, but much less not what you'd expect to find in a prairie city! However, yes Saskatoon has it's own Burmese restaurant and there is so much to try on the menu! Reservations were recommended on a weekend night. The mood is possibly romantic with dim mood lighting or a taste of the exotic, which depends on one's state of mind. Service was good and eating early helped avoid the crowdedness that might occur among diners later into the night.
Favorite Dish: Noodle dishes have huge portions - good for leftovers the next day. Even the noodle salad appetizer could have been a dish within itself. Haven't tried the other things on the menu but a lot of it sounds interesting.
Last night i went to Lee's Saigon Palace for dinner with my family. The food was very good but it was too spicy for my children. i have tasted the food at Red Pepper a week ago and even though the food was alright, the cost was very high. The food at Lee's Saigon Palace is cheap and great. I recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family to this restaurant.
Please try it.
Favorite Dish: my favorite dish was the spring rolls and phad thai dish. My children liked the Lee's Chocolate Cake.
A real crowd pleaser. When you can’t agree on a place to go, it has a little something for everyone. It’s fast and at $10/person, a bargain. There are five separate tables of food: Asian, vegetarian Asian, North American, fruits and salads, desserts.
Favorite Dish: Yes, they even have ginger beef.
There are a couple of good steak restaurants downtown, but try to go there when someone else is paying because they can get expensive:
Carvers Steak House 612 Spadina Cr. E;
Saskatoon Station Place 221 Idylwyld Dr. N;
Johns Prime Rib & Steak House 401 21st St. E;
Outside of downtown, there are a couple of excellent (chain) steak restaurants:
The Keg 1110 Grosvenor Ave. (8th St);
Tony Roma’s 125 Circle Drive East
Favorite Dish: At The Keg, try "The Baseball"... so thick, you won't be able to finish it.
There are at least 10 Vietnamese restaurants in the 5 x 5 block downtown area of Saskatoon. Throughout the winter, we decided to visit them all… or at least until we found one we liked.
Shanghai Kitchen (a.k.a. Pho’s ) 120 Idylwyld Dr. S [a bit seedy, but the best food and good service];
Red Pepper Restaurant 145 3rd Ave. S [a popular choice];
Saskatoon Asian 136 2nd Ave. S [has a separate room for groups up to 30];
Vietnamese Diner 702 22nd St. W [just outside downtown];
Ding Dong 105 21St E [sticky table tops and no booze];
Saigon on 3rd Ave 325 3rd Ave. N [never anyone in there]
Lee’s Saigon Palace 123 3rd Ave S [chef had dirty fingernails];
Saigon Rose 69 24th St E [walls hadn’t been washed for years];
Chau’s Commodore 108 2nd Ave. N [not much in the buffet at night];
421 3rd Ave [too scary to even try]
Favorite Dish: At Pho's, try #46: Vermicelli noodles with chicken and spring roll.
I didn't expect to find a Vietnamese restaurant in the middle of Saskatchewan. This is a little tucked-away place, run by a family. The owner is a kindly, elderly lady, who enjoys conversing with the customers. This is one way of getting good tips on your stay in Saskatoon.
Favorite Dish: Ginger Beef: the sweet, spicy, & savory in an unforgetable combination.
Whether it's for eating or getting together with friends for drinks, this is a hip restaurant with a local feel. The restaurant has a couple other prairie locations, Regina (where the first one started) and Winnipeg. The restaurant's walls are covered with interesting local artwork and the ambience is warm and welcoming with music that's not too loud but can suit most tastes. The food has some local dishes (I think that has changed a bit now) but the menu is like other Canadian restaurants with some Asian dishes. There is a bar and patio seating for summer.
Favorite Dish: The menu has changed but I liked the falafel wrap and their chocolate desserts. The cocktails are a great price and there were a ton to choose from when they had drink menus...
The city of Saskatoon gets its name from the Cree Indian word mis-sask-quah-toomina, the name given to a berry that grows locally. The Berry Barn is primarily a dessert restaurant that specializes in products using the Saskatoon berry. Situated in a berry orchard on the banks of the river, the building is beautifully maintained and surrounded by a well tended garden. The Berry Barn is open from April to October.
The Berry Barn also offers products for sale made from Saskatoon Berrys: jams, candles, champagne and many others. If you can't make it to the Berry Barn, their products are also available from a vending cart in the Midtown Plaza mall downtown. The souvenir store at the airport also offers a small selection of Berry Barn products.
Favorite Dish: No alcohol is available for sale at the Berry Barn but you can bring your own if you would like some served with your meal. Other than berry themed desserts, the Berry Barn has Ukrainian food available, perogies, sausage, cabbage rolls.
