Brilliant atmosphere once you enter, really welcoming. Great pint of Guinness and a wide selection of whiskey. Staff are friendly and nothing was a problem.
Broad range of age groups but a nice buzz of conversation.
We didn't eat here on this occasion but friend recommended the food.

We were visiting Calgary from Nova Scotia. We were staying nearby and noticed the restaurant, Buchanan's. We decided to give it a try. We happened to stop by during Happy Hour Food which is between 3-6PM, you can get one of their 8 oz ground sirloin burgers for $12 (which is half price). We all ordered burger and fries. AMAZING, HUGE, TOP QUALITY!!! Top notch food, top notch service!! Better than anything we have had in Nova Scotia. The waiters were friendly, courteous and amazing! They cook the burgers just as you ask... perfectly!!!!!! YOU MUST VISIT DURING Happy food hour!!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!! The rest of their menu looks fantastic, we will be back again to try other items. We ate in the bare during Happy Food hour, they also have a fine dining section. We were too full for desert, but will be back to try their wonderful desert menu.

This looks like a neighborhood pub and whiskey bar, but it is so much more.
The whiskey choices are immense and the menu leaves you wanting more than one.

I had the Hong Kong wings with the lobster scallops. I recommend both. Just outside the downtown core, this place is worth the walk.

If you are in Alberta, you should be eating steaks, especially if the restaurant is called a chop house! We walked here from the Westin on a Thursday night. A few tables were occupied outside. I don't know why but we were the only diners inside. Our waiter Sean was very attentive and knowledgeable. Filet mignons were great, cooked and served to our order. Don't understand why other reviewers would complain about $29 hamburgers when they could've had a filet mignon for $39. Had wines by the glass and shared apple crumble dessert. Prices were very reasonable, even without the 25% discount for C$ to US$. BTW, there is street parking available in the evening.

For $ 27, one would expect a hamburger to be omg good. It's ordinarily mediocre. And small. And overcooked. And nigh tasteless. The best reason to go to Buchanan are the whiskeys. There are too many to drink in a lifetime. The food... is a different story.
