We had dinner at Buzzards Restaurant as we had our 8 year old daughter with us and couldn't get into the pub. The food was beautiful and great value for money. We have been in Canada 3 weeks and really missing a decent steak. We found one here at a price half what other places charge.

I'm pretty sure I died and went to heaven this place has amazing food music and the beer passport is a fun thing to do, 3 different passports of 80 beers from around the world? Challenge accepted. Waitress was amazing at recommending different beers or steering us away from crappy ones. Great experience thanks!

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Calgary. It's great pub food. The selection of beer was kinda overwhelming but our server was great at offering suggestions.

Been visiting this establishment for years. Always a fun time, great atmosphere, and warm staff. The food is great and the famous beer passport is a lot of fun. You get your own passport with 80 different beers to try over the course of a year. If you complete this task you're awarded with your name on a trophy board.... More

We visited mid afternoon on a Wednesday. The restaurant was not crowded and they did offer outdoor seating. I had the burger with sweet potato fries and it was excellent. My husband had salmon and one of the local beers. Service was excellent. The pub was located behind the Fairmont Palliser Hotel.

Located directly behind the Fairmont. Nice Staff and provided a extensive menu of beers. They have 80 beers available. The food quality was good and the selection provided excellent value for the money. The restaurant has an outdoor patio. Service was exceptional.

We needed a late meal and happened across Bottlescrews. Pub-like interior with Rock tone. Staff was awesome and helpful. Great selection of beers & liquors. I had the bison steak which was rare (I ordered medium rare) but tasty. Sweet potato fries were awesome. We will be going again.

Thank Sonya F
