I don’t know about you, but one of the first things I do when I get to a new place is to look up the best restaurants in the town or city that I’m visiting. Food is high on my list of priorities when I’m travelling, and I savour the chance to try the best culinary experiences a city or town has to offer.

Food often reflects the local culture and spirit of a place, and the restaurants in Swift Current are no different. The restaurants in Swift Current focus on creating quality, authentic comfort dishes, with friendly and welcoming service that reflects the town’s hospitality. Here are a few of our top restaurant recommendations.

Akropol Family Restaurant & Dining Room

The menu at Akropol is diverse, offering plenty of delicious and generously portioned Greek dishes and classic favourites like burgers and fish and chips. Operating in Swift Current for over 55 years, Akropol is a local favourite and definitely worth a visit when you are in town. Menu highlights include their spinach pizza and the steak, which their website claims is the best in town. 

Russell Up Some Grub

Sometimes the best things are hiding in the most unexpected places, and this is certainly the case for Russell Up Some Grub. Located in a strip mall just off the Trans-Canada highway, serves up unpretentious and oh so tasty diner fare. Stop in for breakfast where you can try their French toast made with Saskatoon berries or delicious Canadian fry up with eggs and back bacon.

Schimmel’s Dutch Bakery

Located in a building with a classic Dutch windmill façade right next door to Akropol, Schimmel’s offers a truly mouth-watering assortment of baked goods that are made in-house. Stop in for lunch and be sure to try out their cinnamon buns – many claim it’s one of the best they’ve ever tried!
