Hotel restaurants are often seen as the tired domain of charter tour groups and weary business travelers, and rarely a destination for locals. Here at Carver's Steak House, you will find a high-end steak house where portions are big and so are the prices, but people who live by expense account and love a carefully grilled piece of Grade A Alberta beef: won't go wrong here.
The specialty here is delicious, succulent chicken that is slowly oven roasted rather than coated with batter or deep-fried, a method that is rapidly catching on. You can order a chicken clubhouse and a chicken cheese melt and still have enough moolah in your wallet for seconds. There are also a number of delicious salads and desserts to choose from. This is the fast food of chicken; you will find a casual but fast paced atmosphere in a clean and unpretentious setting.
