Nice place

Nice place and good food but a little pricey. The fondue and hot rock are interesting but a novelty at best. There is poor ventilation so it does get smokey .

My husband and I had dinner here. The food was very tasty but it was the experience which I mostly enjoyed. We got a cheese fondue as an appetizer. Then we got our meat which we cooked on a hot stone at our table. For desert, a chocolate fondue! Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. It's been a... More

My then-fiancé and I had a special birthday here on March 7. The whole meal was awesome, the drinks were great, and the atmosphere can't be beat. We enjoyed talking on the phones (there's one at every table and a map on your placemat!), with some friendly strangers. Dark, dreamy, and filled with smoke from searing exotic meat, there's no...

Dark, warm and cozy interior with an extensive fondue menu. Staff is well versed in everything fondue and advises clients on choices of food, wine and desserts. Great place, put it on the Bucket List!!

This is a special place to eat. Pricey, but worth an occasional visit. Even the kids liked it. The special is the best option, including app, main and dessert-all either fondue or hot stone. Meat choice is incredible. The restaurant has a fascinating history, too.

We went for an early dinner and had excellent service! The waiter(Ted) gave us good tidbits of information with our 4 course fondue dinner! The Grizzly House serves exotic meats. A one of a kind place to eat!

Loved it! Group of 6 friends and our first time having a fondue meal. The stuffed mushrooms were amazing! So much food though, so be prepared to pop that top pant button! Must do at least once.

Wouldn't visit there twice or more, just once is enough just to enjoy the atmosphere which is kinda unique. The foods are OK the prices are way expensive than I expected in that area.

Grizzly House has a rich history attached to it which makes it a legend in Banff, if you're in Banff you should definitely go, its a tradition. It's got to be the best fondue place i have gone to in a long time, always great when i do go. Its pretty good value for what you pay, you can't expect... More

Haven't been here in 10 years. This was our first experience with kids (age 7 & 8). Server was less than enthusiastic at our 530pm reservation. Food was the same as it used to be...decent but not amazing. It was the experience we were after, but with all of the flavors in Banff, Calgary and area, our taste buds are... More
