Went for some quick drinks and food to celebrate a friend's birthday at the new Melrose place within Cowboy's casino; the place was half full, however the 2 waitreses could not keep up with all orders from casino machine customers, leaving us waiting quite some time. Food was ok though, but does no resemble the prior place at all.

Went there with two families (4 teens and 4 adults) got a huge booth and settled in for a great lunch. Menu has lots of selection and the staff were very knowledgeable. Friendly front of house staff - short wait - nice lounge on the side. In the middle of a parking lot at SouthCentre Mall so there is loads of parking, but it can get busy with shoppers and travelers.

The "new" Melrose located inside Cowboys Casino is awful. The food is grossly overpriced for anywhere in the city, nevermind it being in a casino where they are basically supposed to 'give it away'. After ordering I was expecting a grandiose type meal, but it was just a typical flatbread sandwich w/ fries for $18. I will eat at Zen whenever I find myself at Cowboys. I know they are owned by the same person and I am lining the same pockets, but I just do not see any value in Melrose.

Visited Melrose before a Flames game. Had to wait a bit for a seat, but it was worth it. Nacho's we had for an appy were great. Rest of the food was good too, and the beer was cold. All in all a good experience.
