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

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.

Recently went to Banff as part of a tour with my family to show my mum some of the Canadian Rockies. This restaurant had good write-ups in the local publications so we decided to give it a try. Overall we were quite impressed by the food and between seven of us we sampled a fair cross-section of the menu. I... More

I was very excited to try this place. I had heard amazing things about it. We were seated promptly, at a table where we had to sit across from each other. My man does NOT like that so he requested a table where we could sit side by side. The manager promptly took care of this for us. We thought,... More

I eat here every time I am visiting Banff this place has been here for decades and never disappoints. I love that they have the option of a glass or 1/2 liter of wine, the service is fantastic.

If you're staying in Banff you must spend an evening having fondu at Grizzly House. We chose the full meal fondu dinner which included cheese fondu, hot rock fondu, and a chocolate fondu for dessert. It was delicious and fun to eat too.
