We don't always make a point of dining at the Grizzly when in Banff but it is an enjoyable evening with a group, especially when one gets into the spirit of the place and selectively phones people at other tables. The food is good - not stellar - but the variety of meats available for the fondue is impressive. Not... More

After hearing good things about this venue from friends I thought I would give it a go. I was looking forward to a fondue experience but it wasn't to be. The fondue meals are all designed for two or more people. Being someone travelling on their own this limited me to selecting a generic meal, which I could have gotten... More

Everyone says that the grizzly house fondue is the thing to do in Banff but I am glad I went on a casual dinner rather than bringing out of town relatives. All in all the whole experience was lack lustre and over priced

This was our first meal in Banff after we arrived. We sat outside on their patio as it was all booked, you need to make reservations if you want to be inside. They had heaters outside which helped, it was not too cold though. The service was great and it was a really neat change to the regular restaurant meal.... More

We recently started going to fondue recents whenever we can find one in our travels. We had never tried the grizzly house in our home town. They used to be considered expensive. After going to places like Ayden's in Saskatoon and various other high end restaurants in Vancouver and Montreal for very average $150 meals we thought that maybe fondue... More

A cheese fondue with bread to dip into it, An oil fondue with meat to sizzle in it, A chocolate fondue for desert. This place will get anyone hooked on fondue. But, as you can imagine, lots of pots with hot oil sizzling on a hot afternoon... Your best bet is to do what we did. Weather permitting, eat on... More

Honestly I always thought of this as the quintessential place to go in Banff... So while walking around we decided to stop in for a late lunch. The restaurant was quiet but the first thing we noticed when we walked in was the buffalo head with all the grease hanging off of it. It stunk in there.. like grease, not... More

Went in August and sat outside enjoying drinks and a cheese fondue appetizer. We had shrimp, lobster and scallops that we heated up on the hot rock brought by the waitress. Really good food and great for people watching.

This was our second time here. The first time we went we had so much food we couldn't finish it. The food and our server was fabulous, no complaints what so ever. Well after talking the Grizzly House up to brother and sister in law we decided to take a trip to Banff for a great meal. We ordered two... More
