Great steak and good service

We really enjoyed our meal here. The service was friendly and our meals were excellent. The steak was cooked beautifully and he chipotle sauce was original and delicious. The flatbread starter wS also really tasty. The local Pinot Noir was also very moreish!!Recommended if you visit Banff.

I came here twice during my trip, once for a drink downstairs, where I was impressed by the range of ciders available, and once for dinner upstairs. The food was excellent and the atmosphere vibrant. Definitely at the classy end of Banff eateries

still not sure what a 'hangar' steak is, but very tasty and nice with salad, not bad for $18, but veg are all extra here. One filet and one sirloin were pronounced good, although the ' blue' steak was not, despite clear definitions on the menu. Wine at $42 a bottle bit pricey.

Decided to try the salt lick for the first time. Seemed like a nice place until our waitress began to serve us. She was very rude and we felt like we were an inconveniance to her. She flirted with the bartender and chatted with her coworkers instead of bringing our bill or clearing our plates. We were so unimpressed with... More

Well I finally had the best burger ever. Had the double fist cheddar burger here and let me tell you ladies and gentlemen it was amazing. So much flavor. Service was great and would stop here again on future visits. Give it a try.

The Royale Burger was outstanding - easily a top five all-time hamburger for me. We sat on the lounge patio on a beautiful evening watching tourists stroll by. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. Overall, Saltlik was an excellent dining option in Banff.

A must to visit. Went there on the advice of a local and he was correct. Great steak and beer and a good choice of sides and sweets.

Excellent restaurant upstairs and great pub to wait in downstairs. Food and drink are very good. Recently noticed that menu has changed but its still good even though a few favorites have disappeared.

An amazing meal was had by myself and my wife recently at the Saltlick in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The ribs were delicious and the steak was cook to perfection. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure that our dining experience was perfect. We had a very enjoyable meal at a cost but it was well worth the money. Would... More

My husband and I stopped by for lunch one day and then came back for dinner on another. Great service and food! We shared a ribeye steak with Mac and cheese sides and asparagus - rich and filling but worth every bite. I enjoyed the whatchamacallit house red and my husband drank the Stanley Park Pilsner to round it all... More
