The Woods Restaurant

The Woods Restaurant

This bright, open space boasts a wall of westward facing windows with a magnificent view of the golf course and the hills west of Airdrie. They call their brunch LEGENDARY and the locals would agree, voting it Airdrie’s Best Sunday Brunch 11 consecutive years! Every Sunday throughout the year, you can enjoy what Executive Chef Li Luo calls a “deliciously outrageous experience.” It includes eight hot stations, with the most popular, by far, being the eggs benedict and eight cold stations that include a popular sushi station and smoked fish platter.

The four dessert stations include a chocolate fountain and house-made profiteroles. A made to order omelet station and personal cuts of herb crusted prime rib are also a regular feature with subtle changes made to the line-up for special events such as Easter and Thanksgiving.

Kids love going for brunch at Woodside. Not only do they love dipping marshmallows or fresh fruit into the chocolate fountain (who doesn’t!), but they also have giant checkers and chess boards just outside the dining room. The atmosphere is relaxed, comfortable and inviting. The room is very versatile and allows tables of all sizes to be created to accommodate groups who make advanced reservations. Celebrating a special occasion? Brunch at Woodside is the perfect fit!

Woodside also provides daily lunch and dinner services throughout the active golf season at the club. The west facing patioh – that’s not a typo, is also a beautiful oasis for guests to enjoy a drink or meal under the bright blue Alberta skies. With a large number of patio heaters, comfortable furniture, music and great views you would be hard pressed to find a better outdoor venue in the city.

Woodside combines great food with spectacular views, all you need to do is choose your company! Reservations Recommended 403.948.7416
Montana's - Airdrie

Montana's - Airdrie

It’s only been open for a handful of months, but Montana’s BBQ & Bar is already attracting crowds – and awards! Mitz Simonelli opened the Airdrie franchise because he felt the city needed more family-friendly restaurants.

“We’re a down-to-earth establishment that serves comfort food everyone can relate to,” says Simonelli of the restaurant that specializes in BBQ and accompanying cold drinks in a rustic family setting. “Our employees consist of 96 per cent locals,” he continues. “We’re a fun-loving cookhouse and bar with a love for anything and everything from the grill.”

Diners’ experience at Montana’s is unforgettable thanks to the quality of the food and service.

“We love our food. It’s saucy, smoky, barbequed, meaty, tender, and delicious!” says Simonelli. “We specialize in a variety of tender meats and our signature ribs being slow smoked in our state-of-the-art smoker. You can dig in with a fork, or with your hands. We propose hearty food with a few close friends or family, easy relaxation that lends itself to a carefree happiness. It’s part of the Canadian way and is exactly the kind of experience we want to offer our guests.”

Within six month of opening, Montana’s in Airdrie was recognized with a silver award for its food and service. Learn more at
Cooper's Crossing
Best Community

Cooper's Crossing

Twenty years ago, when we put the first shovel in the ground to start Cooper’s Crossing, our family envisioned something special. A community that showcased our vision of classically styled homes rich in character with unique streetscapes, surrounded by lush parks and a network of pathways that connect every corner of the community. We wanted to develop a great community for families; a community that would contribute to living a healthy, happy lifestyle.

We dreamed of a community that offered more to residents than homes and streets. We wanted to create a community where people visited with their neighbors and built relationships with them, where kids could be kids – safely exploring the pathways on bikes and playing on playgrounds that encouraged creativity and physical fitness. We wanted to create a place with a true sense of community that built memories for the families who call Cooper’s Crossing home.

Winning the Airdrie City View’s Best of Airdrie Reader’s Choice Awards is an honour. Thank you Airdrie for voting for us! Having Cooper’s Crossing named Best Community for seven years in a row tells us that our vision was meaningful; people like what they see and the lifestyle that is embodied in Cooper’s. We are proud that many of our residents call Cooper’s their forever neighbourhood, changing homes, but not communities, as the family grows or as kids move away.

We are pleased to introduce the Reynolds Collection, the newest phase in Cooper’s Crossing. The Reynolds Collection features more affordable lots just footsteps from a new school, greenspaces, paths, a grocery store, restaurants and shops. The Reynolds Collection is ideal for first time home buyers, family with young children and downsizers too. You don’t have to wait years for what you want today. It’s all right there, waiting to be discovered in Cooper’s Crossing– and now more accessible than ever before in our Reynolds Collection.

Get your first chance to see the Reynolds Collection up close and personal at the official grand opening celebration on Saturday, Sept 28 from 1 to 5 p.m. Show homes from NuVista and McKee will be open, along with food, entertainment and activities such as axe throwing, rock climbing and balloon twisting.

McKee Homes Ltd
Home Builders

McKee Homes Ltd

McKee Homes began building in Airdrie more than three decades ago and has been honored to build quality homes ever since. The company has been recognized for its work in the Best of Airdrie Reader’s Choice Awards with the Gold for Best Home Builder 11 years in a row.

“We're absolutely thrilled because this is our community and our homeowners who are helping to say that's how they feel,” said Elaine McKee Doel, president of McKee Homes.

The McKee family immigrated to Canada in 1981 from Northern Ireland and was looking at buying a house in Calgary. But, coming from a farm, the family didn’t find the large city to be a great fit. Instead, they went house hunting in Airdrie, and fell in love.

Around 2001, Doel became president of McKee Homes and in 2006 her father passed away. The company is now in the capable hands of Doel, her husband Rob, and her sister Grace McKee.

“My dad always used an example of a three-legged stool with the idea being that a three-legged stool will not stand if any one leg is missing,” she said. “The values that we're based on are quality, integrity and honesty. We took those values as our core and have built our mission and vision around them.”

On top of winning Best Home Builder, McKee Homes also won Gold for Best Corporate Sponsor. A division of McKee Homes, Manor Real Estate, also won Silver for Best Real Estate Company.

Moody's Mediterranean
Mediterranean Restaurant

Moody's Mediterranean

Moody’s Mediterranean restaurant opened its doors in Airdrie in December 2018 and is already claiming Best of Airdrie Reader’s Choice Gold in Affordable Eats and Bronze in both Best Lunch and Best Donair. Owner Moudie Baroud said he’s overwhelmed by the restaurant’s early success and the recognition from residents.

“Being in business for nine months and already receiving awards, is amazing,” he said. “Having people choose us as one of the Best in Airdrie, it puts us above and beyond what we expected for our first year.”

Baroud spent more than15 years in the restaurant industry before making the move to owning a restaurant.

Baroud said he and his family spent six years researching restaurant ownership, travelling to different countries and bringing home new ideas from their experiences. It was important for them to combine everything they learned, he said, to create an amazing menu of Mediterranean food.

Eventually, Baroud wants to turn Moody’s Mediterranean – located at 407-401 Coopers Blvd. S.W. – into a franchise, but said it was important to establish it in Airdrie first.

“We thought if we survive in Airdrie, if we can do it in our hometown, then we can be one of the best anywhere we can go,” he said.

In the beginning, Baroud said, issues with a contractor caught the attention of Airdronians. In that difficult time, he said, residents’ support gave him the boost he needed, and in the months since opening, he continues to experience that encouragement.

“If you become part of the community, then the community backs you up 100 per cent – that's what we found with Airdrie,” he said.

As a multiple Best of Airdrie award winner, Moody’s is certainly a welcome addition to the local restaurant scene and a favourite of local diners.

“I believe that without the community, and without the support of local businesses, it wouldn't be possible. We appreciate it,” Baroud said. “We look forward to many years of working and supporting local.”
