I found this wonderful diner while. visiting High River for work. Decorated like a old diner complete with Jukebox at each booth. I had the chicken pot pie and salad and it was homemade delicious. Service was great too. I didn't try any of the fresh baked desserts but the smells were great.

I've been to Evelyn's many times and have always enjoyed the good vibes and great food. Today, I was disappointed with the quinoa salad. Though, the first few bites were tasty, I felt the salad was over dressed and mushy. I think this would have been a great addition maybe to a sandwich but not a stand alone salad. As... More

Great place with an awesome vibe. Absolutely love the Elvis pictures, the Coca Cola memorabilia & the homemade soup, sandwiches & ice cream. If you looooovvve ice cream you absolutely have to stop by & have their "homemade" Medicine Tree ice cream. Truly to die for

Evelyn's is a classic place in High River. The food is always fantastic. The atmosphere is great- the juke box, the train, and menu items like mlikshakes along with the many other choices. And if you like desserts there are many homemade choices. Food prices are very reasonable.

I had a very large bowl of borscht, almost too much to eat. Delicious - perfect for a cold winter lunch. Desserts looked fantastic, folks seemed to like what they had, I didn't have room. Owner came around to check and offered his thanks for stopping in.

I had an okay Rueben sandwich (the bread wasn't a good rye) but the spinach salad with greens and raspberry sauce was delicious. Rhubarb strawberry crumble pie was amazing.

This is a nice little retro style diner & I had one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten here. They change there menu daily depending on what they can get fresh. I had the butchers special panini which had salami & either chicken or turkey but what made this sandwich amazing was the olive tapenade on it. Tapenade is so under used... More

Just had lunch here in October. Their menu changed from the summer, a fall menu perhaps? Didn't change the quality of food...still fresh and great. This is a soup, sandwich and salad eatery in the summer. The new menu still has soup, salads and sandwiches but a couple of newer items such as butternut squash ravioli (what I had). It... More

This is like going to Mom's for lunch. Home made desserts etc and also saskatoon ice-cream. Try the chicken sandwich and the rhubarb dessert with two inches of merengue.

On a recent visit to High River, several people recommended Evelyn's for a great breakfast. Imagine my disappointment when I learned that they are a diner and serve lunch and dinnner. Since they were open, we did sit down and have cinnamon buns, which were very good. The restaurant is quaint and old fashioned, and they have a train that... More
