Overall, they don't deliver the best. But if you are only interested in Prime Rib, then this place will give you a sumptuous, wonderful slice of heaven. Otherwise, it's just above average fare. But, it is a fun time.

Steaks bring the crowds in, as does the prime rib, which is beautifully roasted to be succulent and fork-tender.

Mother Tucker\'s serves delicious Alberta beef: their specialty is Prime Rib. They also offer chicken, seafood, ribs and a selection of excellent vegetarian choices, including a salad bar with over 60 items. Sundays, they serve brunch from 11am-2pm.
