Thirsty Bear Kitchen + Bar
Great establishment with friendly service and great food. The beef brisket was wonderful. Great selection of beers! Live band made the evening that much better.
Server would just say yes when the answer was no. I asked if a sandwich was a beef dip and she said yes, never had olives for a greek wrap, and serve was extremely slow and would never stick around to get questions from both of us. Never asked how our appy was. Sat with empty drinks more than once. Sub par at best. Could answer anything about the pub. Our server knew nothing about waterton when asked simple questions. Food was over priced. There is not many options so i guess go but hope for a better experience than we got.
The atmosphere was great with live band and the service was good. The food was not great. The fish tacos were like nothing I have ever seen before a full piece of fried fish like large with a small tortilla wrapped around it. I actually took a pic of it as I thought it was a joke as fish tacos are usually cut up and seasoned. We also ordered veggie burger and it tasted like gummed up paste. Not good. Drinks and appetizers were good.
Awesome staff. Friendly service. Must visit.
Great place, just should have been told about the extra $5.50 for replacing fries with salad. Other than that, very good all around.
The food was terrible. I had the lettuce wraps and they were over seasoned and chicken was dry.
Food took about 1 hour to arrive
When we arrived we were told it would be a 20min wait for a table outside. We were totally fine with that and asked if we could sit at the bar for a drink while we wait. Bar service was quick but when we asked about ordering food (an appy) the bartender basically said we couldn't order food and then move to a table outside because it would be taking a server's table. So we said fine we'd wait till we got outside. We paid for our drinks and went out to our table with them (it only took 15min). When our waitress came over, she asked where we got our drinks and basically made us feel bad that we had brought our drinks from the bar even though the host and the bartender both asked us to pay at the bar before we left!! It was completely inappropriate for her to say and as a Lo g time waitress, I was not impressed. We were still going to order food and possibly another drink from the waitress so I'm not sure what she was worried about. She didn't come back after I said we did what we were asked to do so I had to stop another waitress to take our food order. The new waitress was great and the food/ambiance was fantastic. It was unfortunate that both the waitress and bartender seemed to be money hungry over one round of drinks.
Good was really great, but to get a side other than fries is 5 dollars on top of a somewhat expensive meal. However, food was good. Service was excellent. Sangria is a must!
Great evening out and the patio and restaurant are both nice to sit and enjoy. Dinner was VG another fish tacos and lettuce wraps.
While searching for open restaurants in the Waterton area, the Thirsty Bear popped up with the option to make reservations. We did. And then we drove out to Waterton. And then saw that the restaurant was completely boarded up and not open for the season. Um, maybe, shut off your reservations system when you shut down for the season? Luckily the Red Rock Trattoria was open, we were able to get in right away and had an amazing Italian meal there. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice meal in Waterton.
We go to Waterton regularly and this was our first time eating a Thirsty Bear Kitchen + Bar. We loved it and can hardly wait to try it again next year!
Would definitely recommend this restaurant for younger adults. The menu was small but all the options sounded great.
It wasn’t very busy when we visited. Food was tasty and portions were generous. Great for a casual dinner.
Food was great however service was terrible. Waited 15 minutes for a waitress. Needed to ask the hostess if she put us in a section without wait staff. Waitress that finally came was not friendly and acted like we were an inconvenience. Manager should be paying attention to the reviews as most indicate poor service.
The burgers are amazing! It was a bit on the loud side as they had live music at dinner time, but not so bad that you couldn't have a conversation.
Staff was friendly and accommodating, every thing was very clean.
Nice concert and really good food!!!
Reservations were made well in advance and upon arrival we were told that they do not honor reservations...
This is a great place for burgers and beers.
Good atmosphere and friendly staff with great music.
A large place and very comfortable with a nice patio.
The servers were friendly, food is good. The fish tacos and nacho servings are massive so go with an appetite.
Great food selection and a good selection of beers.
Friendly, but slow service. Good bison burgers (a bit overcooked on the edges, but juicy inside). Loaded with everything imaginable.
What a great spot to hit while in Waterton. They had a great 'one-man-band' playing live music. The service was great. The Burger was soooo big and delicious! The only struggle was trying to figure out how I was going to get it in my mouth! Where there's a will, there's a way! You're missing out if you don't stop by!
Had an amazing time at this pub. The Nachos are massive and delicious! The Patio was a great size and had a full height glass perimeter to block the wind and enjoy the street buzz. The live band was such a treat and really makes you appreciate music more when you’re not always listening to a radio playlist. Would make the drive from Calgary to hang out here in Waterton! Thanks Sam!
