One of Very few restaurants in the area that cater to Locally Sourced and Sustainable Alberta Ingredients. The Simply designed space is filled with natural light during the day and at dinner the ambiance is sophisticated, yet relaxed. The menus and features change regularily, and that is just one of the many reasons that locals and tourists alike return time and again.

Features of this Gem of the City are; A noteworthy and west facing Patio, A small but well planned out wine list with some great varietals not seen everywhere, 16 draught beers, including 4 rotating craft options, and the best burgers in town, as voted by customers.

Do not miss the casual and exciting atmosphere that is locally referred to as THE GRANARY KITCHEN.

We always enjoy The Granary. The service is excellent, the food is always top notch. This is the best restaurant in Red Deer by far. We have always had great experiences here. We bring our family for special occasions and are truly treated like family every time!

Best patio in red deer. Service was really good considering how busy it was. Food was fantastic with lots of fresh options. It appears this is the “go-to” patio of the city. West facing, very nice. Well done

We’ve been there before with a terrible experience months ago but decided to give the a chance. Nothing has changed. Food was not good - again. So much confusion on how the servers were to serve food & missed dressings & dips. By the time they got it straight everything was cold. Also we ordered the Buffalo chicken spring rolls, sounded so good. When it came we both almost spit it out !! Tasted like a can of salmon & mayo. The dip totally tasted like tarter sauce (which they of course denied)
We refused to pay for the food & although the manager didn’t bother to come over to the table (terrible management) the waitress conveyed the message.
We absolutely will not return again. We tried.

Had to go home & cook dinner. Extremely disappointing.

First day of re-opening after shutdown. Great ambiance on patio. 2 of 4 steaks overcooked. I feel server was overwhelmed.

We attended the restaurant a day before the closed down for provincial health measures (COVID). It was a rainy day and the only thing open was the patio. They provided us within umbrella, a space heater and we were served by the general manager. We we're the only people at the restaurant so I asked why they were even open today. The general manager stated they had a wedding party of 10 booked for later that day and even though they wouldn't make any money they still decided to stay open to help the wedding party. Overall it was great food, great service and they really seem to look out for their customers.

The patio would be lovely if it were very warm out. If the wind is blowing, even the propane heaters provided to each table cannot make it warm enough to keep your food from becoming instantly cold. Our mistake, not the restaurants fault.

Wow. I'm sure glad I decided to try the Granary Kitchen. (Is is pronounced 'Granary' or |Grainary"? In any case the experience was awesome. My brother and his wife joined me for breakfast and he said the 'skillet meal' was the best he's ever had. My meal of egg benny with avocado on a flakey biscuit. Again, its the very best I've had and Jame's suggestion of grilled tomatoes was delicious. I'll be back!!!

Had to eat on the patio due to stupid covid restrictions but the staff went out of their way to make sure we had heaters to keep warm.

Food was off the charts good, much better than I was expecting, to be honest.

Literally said to my dining partner, "10/10 would eat here again".

Recommended it to a bunch of people already. Quite possibly one of my new favorite places in Red Deer.

When we go to dinner here we normally have one of the burgers, which are fantastic, however this time we decided to each try something different ! I tried the southern chicken and it was absolutely amazing and the mashed potato were perfect...my new favorite dish hands down!! My husband tried the steak with bacon and loved his meal too! Our server was super friendly and made sure to check on us often!

Always worth supporting local!!
