The Hat Resto Pub is conveniently located in the heart of Jasper Avenue, surrounded by world-class hotels & is walking distance from Shaw Conference Center & is two blocks from the future home of the Downtown Arena. It is Edmonton's oldest restaurant, established in 1912, making it more than a century old. For a very long time, it was known as The Silk Hat, a casual diner. It was next to The Paramount Theater & many Edmontonians have fond memories of going to the movies & then to The Silk Hat for burgers & milk shakes. Eventually the restaurant became known as The Hat Resto Pub. Currently the restaurant serves contemporary cuisine featuring different flavours. It also serves draft & bottled beer & many types of cocktails. It has earned a sterling reputation for top-notch food quality & service. Some must-trys include gourmet Prime Rib Burgers, Homemade Crabcakes, Artichoke & Spinach Dip, Butter Chicken, Panko-crusted Goat Cheese, Mussels cooked in wine, & wraps.

I went to the Hat as I had not been there since 1979 when it was the Silk Hat. It held fond memories of being a broke recent graduate and a promising future. Now nearing retirement, I went back to find it just as friendly and great place to eat. I won't leave it that long before I return again. Great food too.

From the reservation to paying the bill, eating at The Hat was an enjoyable experience. The server's (Joanna if I remember) were fun, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. The food was great pub food- it was awesome to have tasty, non-greasy fish and chips. All the other members of the party really enjoyed their food as well. Definitely will go back to this restaurant.

Had dinner here before the hockey game. Great food and service with lots of tv’s. Typical pub food but everything was fresh and tasty and a nice collection of craft beers.

There was one person working, all beer taps not functioning, menu items that no longer exisit and the food took way too long as my party of 4 were 3/4 of the clientelle that night. Wont be back. I could see using this for a quick drink afterwork if you work downtown... but much better eateries around.

The Hat is an awesome place to go. The food is great, actually a hidden gem in my opinion. The staff is friendly and easy going. This is a restaurant I will keep going
