Here you can find answers for the most frequently asked questions at the Sweetgrass Aboriginal Bistro:

When did Sweetgrass Aboriginal Bistro open?

On November 15, 2003, Sweetgrass had the pleasure of opening to the public.

Can I make reservations online?

Yes you can. Go to the contact page, and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.

Is there any live entertainment?

Not at this point.

Who are the artists?

The art galleried at the restaurant varies. We wanted to grant more exposure to native artists as well as give them a venue to sell their works of art, while at the same time adding to the atmosphere of our restaurant. Presently we display works by John Tenasco, Doug Kakekagumick, Marion, Beam and R. Bedwash. We also have other art that is not for sale – some of these artists include Glenna Matoush and Benjamin Chee Chee.

What is Bison?

Bison is another word for buffalo. The great American bison is the largest land mammal in North America since the end of the Ice Age. Estimates of the pre-European herd size vary from 30,000,000 to 70,000,000 animals and they ranged over most of North America. There are three subspecies of bison: the Plains bison, Wood bison, and the European Wisent.

Is our entire staff aboriginal?

Nope. Most of our staff is aboriginal, but not exclusively.

Does Sweetgrass cater?

At the moment we are focusing on establishing ourselves as a casual fine dining establishment.

What forms of payment are accepted?

Visa, MasterCard, Debit and, of course, cash.

Are reservations necessary?

Reservations are not necessary, but recommended. We have had to turn people away on occasion. So, if you plan to dine with us, we are only a quick call or email away.

Are you able to accommodate patrons in wheelchairs?

We have had guests in wheelchairs who were aided into our establishment before. However, we do not have a washroom that will accommodate someone in a wheelchair.

Do you serve vegetarian dishes?

We make sure that there is always something for our vegetarian guests to choose from.
