This is one of South Calgary’s most popular pubs, and one of the longest running hotspots since 1992. They offer a comfortable pub atmosphere with an ever-evolving menu of snacks, traditional pub fare and world cuisine with a huge selection of imported and domestic beers.
The menu is loaded with comfort food and familiar classics, a plethora of choices sure to satisfy any time of day. The menu reflects fresh ideas while still retaining the “Swan Classics” that keep the customers coming back. Some good choices for starters are the Tenderloin Steak Crostinis, bite size tenderloin pieces grilled tender and lightly spiced, topped with sautéed mushrooms and served on garlic crostinis, and the So Cal (So Cal = South Calgary) Fish Tacos, lightly battered crisp cod fillets with wasabi mayo, baby arugula greens, crunchy oil and vinegar slaw and a fresh mango salsa on the side.
• Top-grade beef chuck meatloaf, wrapped in bacon and topped with our Jack Daniel’s BBQ sauce, served with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables
• One pound of fresh P.E.I. mussels steamed in a tomato, garlic and onion reduction and crumbled feta, served with French loaf garlic toast
• Grilled chicken breast, chopped bacon, sliced cherry tomato and avocado, quinoa tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette, on a bed of Arugula greens
• Pulled pork, smoked in house and stacked high on a buttery brioche bun, topped with crunchy vinegar and oil slaw and a thick tempura onion ring
The burgers are always a favourite. Freshly ground in house and hearty, the Bruschetta Bacon Burger was an obvious choice. Strips of Hickory smoked bacon and house made tangy white balsamic Bruschetta are complemented by a feta infused cream cheese spread and served on a fresh chewy pretzel bun with your choice of side – we chose the Caesar salad.
Have some fun with the build-your-own Grilled Cheese. Choose your bread and choose from over 18 ingredients such as smoked Gouda, grilled apple, Mac and Cheese, fried egg and much more. Pick your side and enjoy your masterpiece!
Sunday brunch is a favourite! Enjoy items such as the Smoked Brisket Hash, beef brisket with breakfast potatoes, onions, shallots and peppers topped with two eggs your way; the Cristo Sandwich, grilled French toast stuffed with ham, turkey and Swiss cheese dusted with icing sugar and served with hash browns or the Full English, all reasonably priced.
