Bowness Pub is a newly renovated and revamped neighborhood pub. This quant little pub has devilishly good food, featuring build your own thin-crust pizza's, poutine, burgers, and more. 13 flat screen T.V.'s, live music, pool table, games, VLT's, and the friendliest staff this side of the Rockies.
The title says it all. Bowness used to be so great...the food was amazing but this time around it is sup-par. I had heard about things going downhill here, but didn't expect it to be so.
Wait times are ridiculous, even though me and my friends arrived rather quickly and knew exactly what to order, our order took forever to come. One hour! And when the waitress brought our order, she even mixed up one of our orders and didnt even appologize when she tried to charge us for it. Seriously? How do you guys stay in business!?!?
Me and the hubby decided to check out the new pub. Hadn't been in there in years. Food was pretty good, and the bartender was really friendly (which was a nice change). Apparantly the new owners are in the middle of doing more outside renovations. Looking forward to seeing the new changes! Certainly a welcome change from the old place.
After a complete overhaul of the formally grungy Pig and Pint, the new Bowness Pub is everthing that the emerging community needs. Friendly staff, great pub grub, and a warm feel. I had the thin-crust pizza and it was wickedly good. They have some interesting items such as a build your own poutine, and deep-fried pickles which my wife absoutely loved. While certainly modernized, the owners have maintained the true Bowness community spirit through some amazing photographs of the area from the early 1900's. Very cool!
