A Must Eat Place in Banff

Food was better than run-of-the-mill. Server was attentive although we went at lunch on a busy Sunday so it was hustle us through and get the next table seated. I don't blame them - high summer season in Banff is shoulder to shoulder bizarre busy and they are there to make a buck. 3 adults and 2... read more

This is a beautiful restaurant that we chose to stop at for lunch. We were not that hungry, so asked to split the 8 oz burger. Our burger could not have had more than 4 oz of meat. We saw others eating the same meal and their burgers were much bigger. While we realize that the 8 oz is before... More

The restaurant is really nice! Beautifully decorated by wooden stuff. Everything from wood. Love it! My wife and I ordered bison and beef burger and shared together to try both. It was not something amazing but was not bad. Maybe I should have tried their famous meal that includes some pieces of raw meat. You will have a hot stone... More

This place has been here FOREVER - for a reason. It is fun and loud and eclectic! If you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner this is not the place, but you will have a good time and the food is fantastic and I think reasonable priced - go for the fondue dinner plan!

We had reservations to celebrate our 8th anniversary here. We were running a little late and called ahead and they were able to still accommodate us. The atmosphere is is definitely unique! It was extremely busy and the service was really good, but it was very slow! This worked out for us as we were just going home after dinner,... More

I was here maybe 10 years ago and remembered it being a unique dinning experience and so thought we would try it again. I ordered the buffalo burger and soup and came in a reasonable time and had good presentation. The soup was excellent and the burger was good too with the default garnishing. We also ordered a side of... More

Looked forwards to eating here all day. Arrived, cued for a table, the server started to accommodate us, however walked off and seated 3 other couples in between seeing to us meaning there was no longer anywhere to sit. Could have been because we looked young? We left without any apology from the staff and found restaurants far nicer with... More

We showed up on a busy Sunday night without reservations and there was a long wait, but had the option of eating outside which changed to wait to 20 minutes. So the staff made accommodations. Remember to dress warm cause even in August, it gets cold there at night. Forget the shorts and short sleeve shorts if you plan to... More

The history of the Grizzly House is very intriguing. The food was incredible and the wait staff was so fun. Our table of six was served quickly and well. We had so much fun listening to the stories from our waitress of the interesting history of this establishment. I won't give it away, but the restaurant has phones to call... More

This was a fun experience with our 7 and 9 year old. They loved the fondue and trying some exotic meats! Each table also has a phone at it, so they enjoyed calling the other tables. The service was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
