Travelling though the parks, we'd made up our minds that we'd get a pass and pull into Lake Louise for lunch. I don't know what we were thinking on the Sunday of the lsat long weekend of the summer, as Lake Louise was a complete zoo with the number of vehicles and people that had the same idea we had....

We chose to eat here from a recommendation, I ordered the ribs which tasted good but half of the slab was cold? Not sure how that happens! My potatoes were also Luke warm. My wife ordered the Shrimp Alfredo it was nothing special, the best of our three meals was my son's crusted Halibut it was good. Service was almost... More

Went on a recommendation from a friend, no need to book for supper, Steaks where very good, service very poor, disinterested staff, service let the place down.

Good food and service. Only found out there was 18% service charge for party of six (in small print bottom of menu) when we asked for the bill. Then was ask for more tip for the waiter personally. Won't be returning unless we have party of 5 or under.

After a day of hiking we were hungry so we tried the Saltlik. I had the sirloin and my wife had the halibut. Both meals were very good and the waiter was exceptional. It was not Ruth's Chris quality but very good.

I've worked in Banff for the last 5 months and have always wanted to go to the Saltlik. I had heard incredible things about it and I was not disappointed. We were seated excellently upstairs in the lounge area and already it was a fantastic atmosphere. The waitress was quick and efficient in getting our drinks I had the amber... More

We only discovered this restaurant on our last evening in Banff, or we'd have visited it again! Excellent food and nice, relaxing atmosphere. Waitress had excellent menu knowledge and was able to answer all our questions regarding gluten free options, as two members of my family have celiac. If we visit Banff in the future, we'll be sure to return... More

We came here upon hearing reviews of amazing steak and they were not wrong! There was a really quirky atmosphere in here with 'mood lighting' and intriguing decor throughout. We received excellent, attentive and friendly service and had a great starter too (cheese and onion flatbread). They offer different specials every night of the week and we got lucky visiting...

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!
