Be prepared to smell like fondue, you will come out of the Grizzly House smelling like the meat and cheese (seriously on your clothes and hair!). The hot stones and garlic butter to cook the meat was divine, the chocolate dessert fondue was amazing!! Cheese fondue was good, but not the best I have had. Restaurant is very pricey but... More

We had a wonderful time at this fantastic restaurant - did the full fondue experience. Started with a salad then Bagna Cuada - delish Italian vegetable fondue, followed by the Chicken and Beef Fondue and wrapped up with a toblerone chocolate fondue. Small portions which was perfect for me.. I think you can order extra if you like. Either way... More

While in Banff recently, we went to the Grizzly House and ate in their outside eating area. We had never tried a fondue restaurant and wanted a special experience. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the three course meal with the cheese fondue first and it was wonderfully flavorful. The second course was Beef and Lobster... More

Interesting atmosphere to say the least, ask your server what the phones were for and have a good laugh. The food was good but it does get a little thick with smoke in the restaurant due to all the cooking at the table.

We had never been to a fondue place before, so decided to give this a try after a friend recommended it. The waitress was very knowledgable and helped us order, the only problem we encountered was how much to order. After looking at other peoples meals we just ordered a medium sizes beef fondue and a trout page starter. Both... More

We went to Grizzly House Restaurant twice. The first time we enjoyed our meal on the patio, but succumbed to a terrible server. We put up with the attitude and managed to enjoy the exotic meal. The second time we went, a server was rude to me, another was rude to my husband, and a third server was useless and... More

We always try to eat here before or after backpacking in the area because it's our favorite place in Banff. The lunch menu is a great value. We often have the 3 course meal, but otherwise order extra meat and don't forget the chocolate fondue for a memorable, but delicious meal. We love everything - salad, rosti, hot rock, cheese,...

My wife and I have recently toured Alberta and British Columbia. we had a fantastic time and anyone who's not been should make it their number one destination! On our trip we spent two days/nights in Banff, a really buzzy place. Strolling through the town on our first night we went looking for somewhere to eat, standing outside the Grizzly... More

If this restaurant is the fondue place we went to, and I think it was, it's a total rip-off. We ended up spending more than $275 for a family of four adults, and although the cheese fondue was great, the meat course was not, and I disliked paying this kind of money to cook my own food at the table....
