The Wildfire Grill at Flames Central is a surprising place for food. Most people aren't going to visit this place for the cuisine, or the decor. The latter could use a refresh as it doesn't appear to have been well scrubbed since construction finished in 2007. You'd think they would update the memorabilia; it's been a while since Phaneuf, Iginla... More

Ate here for lunch when catching up with an old friend and found the place to be quite dark even for a sports bar. The staff were friendly and fun which made up for the average food.

My wife and I went twice – the first was a special date, during which we stayed in the area, ate supper t the fire side grill, ten went to a Flames game afterwards. My steak was fabulous, and...

I was in Calgary in 2009 and I had the chance to go to the Flames Central on a Saturday night. It was awesome! Great music, the house is beautiful, with posters, pictures from the Flames, people from all over the world. I had a great time with my friends. Check it out if you can.

If you are interested in drinking and sports, this is the place. If you want decent food and a place that honors their reservations, go somewhere else. We have been here for lunch a few times because it is close to work. It is usually poor service, crowded seating and mediocre food. Twice our reservations were "lost" which left us... More
