One of the joys of travel is discovering a new restaurant, that proverbial diamond in the rough.

Located in the tiny, unincorporated community of Hedley (about 20 minutes west of Keremeos, BC) in BC’s southern Okanagan,

The Hitching Post is everything I want in a great restaurant.  The interior is not fancy, but character-rich, rustic and casual, as befits an eatery in the touristy part of southern BC.  This eatery specializes in home-style cooking, and the menu prices are especially attractive, particularly if you’re used to the higher menu prices common in, say, Calgary or Vancouver.

Topping off the restaurant’s ambiance nice menu prices, Hedley is located on the picturesque, scenic part of the Crowsnest Highway 3 (between Osoyoos and Hope.)  This section of highway is a regional motorcycle riders’ favourite, possessing a nice blend of gently winding roads and scenery.

Accompanied by two motorcycle friends, Rick and Wayne, and new friends Steve and Sue who live in nearby Keremeos, the Hitching Post served up a fine supper for our party.

I ordered the Prime Rib ‘special’, choosing the mid-size 10 oz. cut, and it was cooked perfectly to medium-rare.  Everybody in our party said their entrees were excellent, and we three Albertans agreed this was an eatery to return to.

On the menu, desserts range from $4-6 dollars.  That’s remarkably inexpensive when typical dessert prices in Edmonton restaurants are typically in the $10-12 dollar range.

The Hitching Post Restaurant is definitely a ‘destination’ restaurant for me.  That means if I’m planning to travel anywhere near the Osoyoos/Keremeos area, I’ll make an effort to return to The Hitching Post Restaurant.  Highly recommended.
