We found this little restaurant on Bear Street near the cinema - The food was excellent as was the craft beer on tap. Service was attentive. I had the hangar steak which was delish, My husband had the Royale with cheese - he declared it the best burger ever!

Our first visit was excellent. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers on the street patio. We decided to go back and have dinner upstairs. Our waiter was no more than a 2 on a scale of 1-10. The upper patio was full. We noticed that others were irritated also as he spent his time socializing with one table. Excellent food but... More

Having had a recommendation for here (from a friend of a friend) we decided to try it out. We are so glad we did as it was the best place we are all honeymoon! We both decided to order the sirloin steak, with pepper glaze and garlic mash (which was topped off with bacon bits and chives). The food was... More

We took the opportunity to have dinner here when visiting Banff earlier this week. We were pleasantly surprised at how attentive our waiter was. When trying to make our app and dinner choices, he made sure he knew exactly what our taste preferences were before he made recommendations and we made our decisions. When it came time to order our... More

Best bison burger, fries and local draught beer. Sweet potato fries also available. Excellent service at this fine establishment. In the past, dogs can be left outside the patio, leashed to the small tree. Not so this summer. Saltlik management apologizes for this.

We stopped by the Saltlik one evening looking for a dry place to wait out a rainstorm. Not being a big fan of steak, I was pleased to see this steakhouse had many other choices. We started by splitting the Rotisserie Chicken Salad. The lettuce was topped with tender pulled chicken, very thinly sliced apples, radishes, grilled pineapple, white cheddar,... More

The food was very good. My husband had the Rotisserie Chicken and I had the Drunken Chicken, which was an asian type dish. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. They had seating on the patio both upstairs and down. The upstairs dining was quieter and more well lit, probably because the bar was downstairs.

Lovely patio seating, but popular! Our waitress was so friendly and attentive to my elderly father. She came by with the baked potato fixins tray and he was delighted. Menu and prices appear to have changed and not as pricey as my ski experience last winter. Alberta beef, aged, and prepared in a variety of ways and exactly to your... More
