good quality food at a decent price in good location. They were due for refurbishment the day we left, not sure why it all looked very nice to us. We would go there again when next visiting the Banff area.

My wife and I stop at the Saltlik every time we are in Banff. The menu is delicious, while maybe not very expansive in terms of items. The prices are quite reasonable, and the service is great. This is a good place to go if you're looking for above average fare at a reasonable price and are in the mood... More

St Patrick's weekend and Banff was so full of folk many restaurants were doing walk ins only. Staff here said to come after 8 pm. So we did and got a table for five in the bar. Same menu and great friendly service at a point when lesser establishments would have gone into melt down given the pressure of numbers.... More

We went here on our first night in Banff. A local recommended this restaurant for great steak. We ordered duck tacos for appetizer and chipotle steak for our main. The steak is mediocre for me. The keg steakhouse has better steak. I ordered well done for my steak and it was kinda dry, but with their chipotle sauce it made... More

The four of us wanted to end our getaway with a splash so we gave it a Go.The waitress that met us at the door... More

This restaurant was reminiscent of some of the better steak restaurants visited over the years in places like Texas. Service was first rate and the food of the highest quality. Steaks were cooked perfectly as was the accompanying side dishes. Highly recommended.

Saltlik was very disappointing after so many good reviews on Tripadvisor. Service was terrible, we were never offered to hang our heavy winter jackets and it took 15 minutes to have someone greet us and bring water to our table when the dinning room was only 75% full. Our food was very subpar for the price. The vegetables were overcooked... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Banff. The service and food is fabulous. Yes it is a bit pricey but they are not shy on the quantity. The Saltlik prepares the best calamari and french onion soup. We have it every time we go and now I have introduced these two items to my son. The look on his face... More
