About Us


Update from 1979

Never miss a game!

Never miss a game!


To our valued guests, 

Like all of you, we are constantly watching the news and following all Alberta Health Services updates, as well as all information coming from the Government of Alberta. 

As of March 27th, we are closed for dining in, and only open for curbside pick ups and deliveries. There are no additional costs for deliveries. 

All areas of the restaurant are being cleaned continuously throughout the day, with professional cleaning solution. 

Our staff is practicing increased hand hygiene; washing hands every 15 minutes, or more as necessary. 

We love being your neighbour and a part of this community; we were welcomed with open hearts in February when we took over the business, and truly look forward to continuing to serve you in our regular capacity, once this is all over. We know that future is bright, and we are happy to be here, ready to help you celebrate  things like family gatherings, drinks with a friend, or a fun night out watching sports. 

Thanks for your support, stay well and healthy, and we will get through this together. 

Igor Bojic, 

General Manager & Owner
