Taking Local To
The Next Level

As a Lethbridge landmark, we take our responsibility to represent this town seriously. That’s why we work with local farms, greenhouses and ranches to create fresh, flavourful dishes showcasing the very best ingredients Lethbridge has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a juicy filet mignon, crisp salad or decadent dessert, we’ve got a dish you’re sure to love. In southern Alberta, there’s no better way to support local than eating the fruits of the land.

About The Water Tower

The Water Tower has been an integral part of Lethbridge’s skyline since its completion in 1959. Back then, it stored and supplied Lethbridge with clean drinking water.

Like many small towns, Lethbridge updated their water supply shortly before the turn of the Millenium, leaving the water tower an obsolete monument from a different time.

But, in March 2003, a local entrepreneur and architect purchased the building, saving it from destruction and creating a restaurant with an incredible view for the whole community to enjoy.

An Awe-Inspiring Structure, With A View To Match

It’s hard to really understand the impact of The Water Tower until you’ve experienced it yourself. From the dizzying height of the 360-degree balcony to the unique interior dimensions and design, The Water Tower features some truly impressive specs!

Original Specs:

  • Tank sat 102’ (31 metres) above the ground, with a diameter of 76’ (23 metres)
  • Held 1.9 Million litres (around 500,000 gallons) of water
    Stood 180’ (55 metres) at its full height
  • 165 stairs to the reservoir
  • 1” (2.5 cm) sway in high winds

Specs since renovations:

  • 60 metres (197’) high from the foot to the top of the aerial
  • 10-second elevator ride from base to restaurant
  • Seats 105 in the lounge and 115 in the restaurant
  • ‘Aerial boardwalk’ sits 102’ (31 metres) above the ground for a view that is jaw-dropping
  • Still a 1” (2.5 cm) sway in high winds
