at the bavarian inn

After much consideration of the September 15 announcement from the Alberta government and AHS, we have decided to implement the Restrictions Exemption Program for our entire licensed facility as of September 20th and will be respectfully asking for the proper documentation required.

As we head onto the fall and winter, we are not able to survive with patio sales and takeout only and there aren’t enough patio heaters for Alberta winters! This program will allow us to remain open for dine-in while keeping our team of 20+ employed over the next few months as we again pivot through this. And a huge shout out to this amazing group that has weathered this storm and stuck by us for the past 19 months, 4+complete closures, multiple restrictive changes, protocols, etc. We are extremely proud of their dedication and resilience coping with these ever-changing situations we are thrown into.

We know these are trying times with differing opinions, but we kindly ask that you please respect our decision as owners and management and show equal and more respect to the staff on the new protocols they must follow. Our goal is to provide excellent service and do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy. Yet one more closure might just be the end…

This will remain in effect until the health order is repealed. If you have concerns on this new program, we strongly advise you to contact your local MLA.

Takeout is available by ordering online or by phone.
