Second time to this restaurant with our first visit 5 years ago a bit of a let down due to bison being really tough and we felt very expensive meal. Had the cheese and mushroom fondue this time and it was Ok, not bad, not great just Ok. Service was really good as the waitress was very attentive and helpful.... More

The place is great. The food is exotic if you want to eat rattlesnakes, elks, bison, sharks, frogs and etc.. You will cook it yourself on a hot rock plate. Place is a little smoky because every table is a grille and a lot of garlic smell is in the air. Love it. The smell of garlic will be on... More

My husband and I heard mixed reviews about this place and decided to try it out. The exotic fondu caught my hubs eye. The restaurant is smokey and greasy but that's what you expect from a fondu/hot stone place. Our waiter was amazing! Super helpful and very funny and nice. We had the full fondu meal for two. The French... More

Is not every day a person can have the opportunity to eat exotic meat, My husband and I have been at this restaurant about 5 times and we have never been disappointed. Yes it is a little expensive for the amount of food but you will not get that quality of meat or sea food in a lot of places.We... More

Although a bit pricy, this is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at. With options for lunch and dinner there is something for everyone. The environment is casual in the larger lounge filled with groups and families and a smaller area and private rooms for couples and intimate parties. This is mainly fondue house but there are several... More

This was quite expensive for the amount of food you got. It was a fondue with either a broth or cheese fondue as a started and meats on either a hot rock or oil fondue for the main course. It was fun to do, the broth with veggies was very rich and had too much butter in it for our... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by many of our friends...and our experience was just not that great. We went here during our frist trip to Banff...found the outside to be very inviting...saw many people sitting inside...and thought we'd give it a chance. The indoor decor is pretty fun too. Our waitress was not very attentive, and we had to flag... More

Is the Grizzly House a little pricier than I would normally spend on a restaurant? Yes. Is it worth it? To me, yes. My husband and I have now been twice, and we had a delightful time on both occasions. The first time was just the two of us. This time was with two friends. I ordered the exotic fondue... More

Hideously over priced for what can only be described as small portions of average food. The service was shocking, with a mumbling waiter who clearly didn't want to be there. To add extra insult, a 15% service charge was automatically added to the bill. Normally this isn't too much of an issue, but it's a little offensive considering all they... More
