Over the past several years, Regina has experienced an explosion of exciting new pubs and eateries. From popular food trucks, to fine dining featuring local fare, to hip new pubs, there’s no shortage of places to satisfy your appetite or quench your thirst.

Downtown Regina offers your biggest selection of dining opportunities. Looking for a delicious steak supper? Check out Golf’s Steak House at 1945 Victoria Avenue, or The Diplomat located at 2032 Broad Street. For those hoping to sample some tasty local fare, check out Crave Kitchen + Wine Bar, located at 1925 Victoria Avenue in the historic former site of the Assiniboia private gentleman’s club. The Capitol, located at 1843 Hamilton Street, offers an ever-changing menu of fresh menu items plus live jazz. Just down the street at 1965 Hamilton, you will find Victoria’s Tavern, a popular choice with locals. Victoria’s serves up all of your typical pub fare, as well as a seriously impressive drink menu.

For those craving some fine dining options, the Willow on Wascana is an ideal choice. Located at 3000 Wascana Drive, this local gem offers stunning views of Wascana Lake and delicious seasonal fare curated from the freshest local ingredients. The Creek in Cathedral Bistro, located at 3414 13th Avenue, is another wonderful choice for those wishing to enjoy a North American French-style cuisine. Just a hop, step, and jump away from the Creek Bistro, you’ll find Bodega Tapas Bar at 2228 Albert Street, home to one of Regina’s best patios and specializing in international-style tapas with an emphasis on the Mediterranean quarter.

Head a little farther north and you’ll find yourself in another popular pub and restaurant hotspot – the Warehouse District. Here you can find an excellent assortment of pubs, restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops. Check out Bushwakker Brewpub, located at 2206 Dewdney Avenue and considered one of the Top 5 Brewpubs in Canada by The Globe and Mail. They also serve us some seriously delicious pub fare! Just down the street you’ll find Rebellion Brewing at 1901 Dewdney Avenue, a popular local brewhouse that offers an impressive beer selection. (Cool fact: Rebellion Brewing has partnered with the University of Regina to create a Congress 2018 beer! You’ll have to visit the Congress Social Zone to get a taste of the Academic Ale – a light, lentil-forward brew.)

Looking for excellent vegetarian or vegan options? Check out 13th Avenue Coffee House, a cozy restaurant located in a character home in one of Regina’s trendiest neighbourhoods. Grab a tea or coffee while you’re there; located at 3136 13th Avenue.

Curry on your mind? Try Caraway Grill, voted one of Regina’s best restaurants by local paper, Prairie Dog. Located at 1625 Broad Street, Caraway brings creativity and mouthwatering flavour to authentic Indian cuisine.
