Warm and rustic restaurant. We had the Neuchatel fondue and it was was cheesy amazing goodness. The server was reasonably friendly and very efficient. They have phones at all the tables (a holdover from a previous incarnation of this restaurant apparently), so be prepared to be interrupted occasionally by a phone call from another table. All in good fun though.

The food, atmosphere and cooking experience were all fantastic at Grizzly house. Our waiter was awesome and its a fun place to eat. The food was exceptional and there were a lot of choices of exotic meat to cook at your table. My recommendations to anyone eating here for the first time is to make a reservation because it can...

We liked the fact that you cooked you own food on a hot stone at the table and the exotic choices of meats. Not cheap but a wonderful experience. Friendly and efficient staff.

After ensuring that the restaurant could accommodate my dairy allergy we met friends for dinner. We had the Complete Fondue Dinner - I had the salad, vegetable fondue, beef and chicken for the main course and raspberry puree with fruit for dessert. My dining partner had the tortellini soup, cheese fondue, beef and prawn for the main course and chocolate... More

We braved the cold and sat outside. We ordered a side of steamed vegetables and chicken and beef to cook on the hot stone. The red wine warmed us and watching the happy people go by on a Saturday night was fun. Sitting close, grilling the veges with the chicken and beef and watching the snow flakes come down and... More

I ordered soup and salad. The soup was chicken tortellini, luke warm but good flavor. The salad was already dressed and limp. The restaurant didn't really seem very clean. My companions said their food was just Ok. One lady in particular said her wild game meatloaf was not good. Service was Ok.

I was not too sure of what I was getting myself into when I reserved a table at the Grizzly House. My fiance wanted to check it out as she loves Fondue, I am not a huge fan of it, but after dining here I would definitely say I had my first positive experience with Fondue. We chose to try... More

I visited here with family as my brother lives in Calgary and it was our last night visiting him so we wanted a special meal.And special it was! The atmosphere was amazing and the rustic lodge style décor was lovely. We had the Alberta meat platter and used to hot plates and marinades to cook our food to our taste.... More

On our visit to Banff over the Thanksgiving weekend we happened upon the Grizzly House after hearing about it from friends. Luckily we were able to get in for lunch. We, a family of four, were all very satisfied with our meals. Cooking our own choices on the hot rocks was a really neat experience. The sides served with our... More

This was the first time that we had taken the kids here. The food as always was great. The waitress was very helpful with her suggestions about serving sizes for us all. She made sure that additional drinks that the kids ordered were okay with us before taking their requests. Very attentive waitress. Outstanding and fun dining experience.
