Great beer selection! The bartender was very knowledgeable on the beers carried and was also very helpful in helping me select beers I might enjoy based on my tastes. A great experience for me and I look forward to going back again to try more new beers. I hope the same bartender is there again when I do. I wasn't thrilled with the food unfortunately.

Great beer selection, good food. This place gets stupid busy on weekends. Fun events and parties regularly.

Best beer selection, popular location, but not the friendliest staff.

Great beer selection, with a great staff. Seating is sometimes hard to come by and it can be quite loud at night. Generally a good stop on a night of bar hopping.

Coming from Ontario I am incredibly envious of the beer selection throughout Calgary, and this place is no exception. The beer hall feel and the cool tickers of beer make this place a go-to whenever I'm in the city. Definitely recommend stopping by for a beer or 4. Location is also great.

A different place then the 10th location but in a good way. Great food. Great beer list. Great happy hour specials and awesome patio.

Completely shocked at how the bartender Jessica treated me last night. I am an employee within the Concord group. National is also part of the Concord group, so I am able to receive a discount here. We ordered a drink with the bartender and I was honest with her and told her that the drinks were for them, not me - and that I wanted to use my employee discount for a single drink. My friends and I had just come back from a wine tasting event, and I wanted to stay relatively sober so I could take care of them. My friend insisted he pay for the drinks. I asked the bartender if she gave me a discount on one of the drinks and she responded so rudely that my issue was no longer about the discount. She was condescending and gave me so much attitude. I spoke to the manager Justin who was very personable and apologized for her behavior and said he would speak with her and told me to let him know the next time I wanted another drink. I found out the bartender's name in case I decided to write a review. I was satisfied with the manager's response until I turned around to see that Jessica had come out all the way from behind the bar and walked up to me and was completely in my face, aggressively asking me why I wanted to know her name, asking me why I didn't deal with her myself, etc. She yelled at me until the manager saw us and told her to get back to the bar. I've had great experiences here at the National, and I've always been treated courteously by the staff. Service is usually prompt and friendly and the food and drinks are great. But l was shocked at the behavior of the bartender last night and I hope she was just having an awful night and hasn't treated anyone else like this.

I like coming to National because it's consistent across locations. Each has its own flair, but you know the service and food will be exactly what you expect!
