We have the right to refuse service to anyone at anytime for any reason

So says the sign at the bar at the J-Bar-T Roadhouse in Spruce View, Alberta on March 10, 2016. This place is about an hour and a half from where I live. It is on Highway 54 east of Innisfail, Alberta. There is not a lot in Spruce View.

A lady friend of mine has a motorcycle and we meet up for the occasional ride. She is fun to hang out with and up for an adventure. She contacted me and suggested we go here. We had been by here a couple of times on motorcycles with the intention of stopping in sometime in the future. She recently bought a used pickup. How can you say no to a woman offering to pick you up and take you to a biker bar in rural Alberta in her truck? I can't.

Menu. The food is very good. To be honest I was not expecting much in terms of food. I ordered a burger and the patty was homemade. I would like to know where they got their bacon from because it was great. I regret not ordering the steak so I will have to go back.

There are lots of photos of bikers on the walls. Apparently this is a popular spot in the summer.

I was surprised there is no draught beer. If you are ever in the area drop in. I recommend it and I will be back.


  1. I like the old saloon-style swinging doors!

  2. Looks like an interesting place...Like the carved dude outside too..pretty cool!

  3. Oh sure. You can afford to go hobnobbing in chauffeur driven trucks, with glamorous women in the finest restaurants...but you can't spare a couple hundred bucks for your best buddy and pal who needs a new Rolex.
    Very disappointed, BW!

    Are ya gonna be out this weekend?
