We enjoyed the osso bucco and the venison. Both were very well prepared. The service was attentive and the wine reasonably good. While I said supper is a must, I would give a pass on breakfast. The service was very slow, the waitress had to...More

The food was just ok. Hamburger was not as tasty as other restaurants. Service was a little slow. It is a very nice hotel inside.

This is a lovely little getaway in the middle of the Edmonton River Valley that is another fine option for Sunday Brunch. We reserved ahead of time and by 11:30 the restaurant was full up. The variety of buffet offerings should satisfy most everyone from...More

Hi Dennis, so glad to hear you enjoyed our Sunday Brunch offerings. Thanks for the positive review. We're happy you found the setting of the meal in our historic Hotel Selkirk a "different time and place entirely"! See you again soon.
