Caesar’s Steak House (Willow Park Village) - Local Business Spotlight
My first experience at Caesar’s Steak House was 11 years ago when my friend Jeremy took me there for my 25th birthday. I fell in love with it. From the great service to the amazing food, Caesar’s Steak House is one of my favourite restaurants. And it truly does have the best steak sandwich in town!
A Little History
Caesar’s Steak House has been a Calgary staple since 1972. Combining classy décor with unbeatable Alberta beef, Caesar’s Steak House promises a memorable experience. A family-owned and operated business that has remained with the founding family since the doors were opened.
Serving Alberta’s finest beef, Caesar’s has worked with the same supplier for over four decades. Aged for a minimum of 35 days, every steak is cut to order and charbroiled to your liking. Tableside dish preparation is a lost art form, but at Caesar’s Steak House you can sit back and watch as your amazing server prepares a salad right at your table. The Caesar cocktail was invented in Calgary in 1969, but the Bloody Caesar cocktail was perfected at Caesar’s Steak House. They offer an Emperor’s size cocktail (full 3 oz), “Maybe it is because we live in the heart of the cattle country - big fields, big mountains and big skies. So it should come as no surprise that we like our cocktails the same way we like our steaks - BIG!” (Caesars Steak House - About, 2020) Caesar’s Steak House has two locations in Calgary: one downtown and the one in Willow Park Village. Both offer the same amazing service and quality food adhering to Caesar’s goal of ensuring guests enjoy a consistent, satisfying high-quality experience. (Caesars Steak House - About, 2020)
“What makes Caesar’s unique? You always know what you are going to get, other restaurants change over time. Caesar’s has a small staff and a small menu that they have mastered! We really get to know our guests, we become family.” Jill, a server at Caesar’s.
Caesar’s has perfected its menu over the years and offers an amazing steak dinner that has guests coming back time and time again. Building lasting relationships with their staff (20-year average), suppliers and patrons are what have made Caesar’s a Calgary institution.
“A steak dinner is more than just a meal; it can turn into a ritual of sorts, best performed not by a restaurant, but by an institution.” (Caesars Steak House - About, 2020)
BLB Final Thoughts
The traditional ambience, great service and food are what hooked me from the very first time. My favourite meal is the steak sandwich, and I love adding the cheese toast to start and the tiramisu to finish. The décor reminds me of a 1920’s movie; classy & chic. I love that era. I enjoy going to Caesar’s in Willow Park and feeling like a part of the family they have created. If you are looking for a great steak sandwich, then Caesar’s Steak House is the place to go!
