I'm pretty surprised by the negative reviews here. I went with my roommate and my boyfriend and I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, the atmosphere is great! It's not fancy by any means, but it's unique - and the fact that the place has been around for as long as it has makes it even more of a gem.... More

we were in Banff for a family-bussines trip, we stayed at the Fairmont Banff Springs and we decided to have dinner at the Grizzly House restaurant, what a BIG mistake, we should have gone as always to the Bison or Balzac restaurant. We arrived to the restaurant around 5:50 pm and just outside of the place we were talking with a... More

Amazing fondue menu. We had a large group so we basically tried everything on the fondue menu. The vegetables were so good and the meat on the hot stone with garlic butter were to die for!! The place has a cool history too.

Can't believe the previous reviews. Ate lunch here on a Friday with our guests visiting Alberta. Thought this would be a great experience. There were only 4 groups in the restaurant. First of all we have never dined anywhere that wheels filthy garbage cans through the middle of the restaurant while customers are eating!!!!! Outrageous. Not once but several times... More

We ate at Grizzly House on Christmas eve. I made the reservation several months in advance, in anticipation of a busy night. We were seated at a table in an area that felt a little like an annex, but we had a great meal. Even though the restaurant ended up not being as busy as we would have expected, our... More

I have been here several times over the years and I always have a good time. Yes it's expensive but for me, I don't mind paying for the experience. It's a great social night out that you do once in a while. We went for a family birthday celebration. 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We all had a great time... More

Yes, you come out smelling like a restaurant, but what a fun experience for the family! Our two teenage boys loved it. We all ordered the four course meal and our server was super accomodating, especially for my 19 year old who doesn't eat cheese. The other son was adventurous and order the "Alberta" special which had venison, bison, beef... More
