From the sawdust on the ground to the mounted taxidermy on the walls, Saddlery is where modern Winnipegers go to relive the turn of the 20th century. Their dishes are simple, hearty, fresh, and all-around delicious.
By focusing purely on food and ambience, Saddlery provides the authenticity of old Winnipeg without the costumes and playacting of a themed restaurant. You can bring your cowboy boots if you want, but the humble and relaxed atmosphere asks that you come as you are.
Chef Michael Day has surprised us with his ability to turn traditional staples into gourmet delights. The signature cocktails are not merely couched in nostalgia, but are a genuine rebirth old-school classics.
Good food and cocktails are one thing, but this place had me sold with its old Winnipeg charm. From your regular joes to your craft brew snobs, Saddlery has something for everyone and brings the traditional craftsmen life back to Winnipeg.
