Awesome steakhouse with a great atmosphere and amazing staff. Head to the dining room for a fancy meal or pop into the lounge for a more low-key evening watching the game. For a budget friendly option I suggest the steak sandwich from the lounge menu. Steak is always done to perfection.

These guys have one of the most amazing menus for beer on tap with some constantly rotating taps so there's always something new. Awesome decorative concept with visible keg rooms and tap lines throughout. Also a rooftop patio in the summer and delicious foodstuffs. I suggest "fast food sushi" or beer-cheese pretzel bites.

Winter or summer this is a great place to go even if you just want to take a slow drive around the park road. Free admission, walk around the park or rent a paddleboat on the lake in the summer, or they clear off the pond of ice-skating in the winter months! This is also home to the iconic Edmonton Ice Castle during the winter.

Getting Around
There is a park-n-ride lot here, if you want to pay to park you can park right at the station, if you don't there is a free lot as well behind the paid lot, 2 minute walk but worth the cost of parking if you're willing to walk! If you plan on going to any events at Commonwealth stadium or Rogers Place this is a way better alternative to driving or taking a cab/uber!

Shopping
Great farmers market with lots of fresh produce and handmade goodies as well as meats and other items. Open on Saturdays in the summer the last time I checked but may have expended their times!

Sightseeing
Technically this is a shopping mall, but if you find yourself stuck inside for the day it's worth checking out. There is a whole waterpark complete with slides and wavepool as well as a theme park and ice rink within the Mall. Usually very busy on evenings and weekends. At the very least, you'll get your daily steps in.
