I love Alberta beef

I had the steak with chipotle BBQ sauce. It was so delicious. Can't go wrong with Alberta beef. The house salad was good. I like the mix of the apricot? vinaigrette and feta cheese. Delicious. The only thing is that I was too full to have dessert, though they sounded delicious.

Well done Saltlik. Over the past week or so I have tried to get a good steak in a Canadian restaurant, to no avail! Now the day before I return to the UK telling all and sundry that the US produces tender and flavoursome steak way beyond that of their northern neighbours, I discovered Saltlik.....! My Caesar salad starter was... More

Steak was special. The mashed potatoes with lobster were outstanding . The potato gratin had such great flavour but the potatoes were still a little raw. We asked our server about a wine and she said it was mostly cab sav so we ordered it...well it was mostly Merlot and it was 85$

We stopped in for a beer as this place came highly recommended by a bartender at another pub. For me, its upscale and pricey, but if you're into that sort of thing then its great. We had a look at the menu, but didn't really see anything that piqued our interest, then again, its is a steak house and I... More

I went out for dinner with customers in this steakhouse. I had the calamari and the 10oz steak and both were excellent dishes. This place offers excellent foods at very reasonable prices. Not pricy at all. Try it

Finally!!!! I've been waiting with baited breath for the reappearance of the Turkey Miso Burger for quite some time....and it's happened! Even a spilled glass of red wine on me by my brother-in-law (he claims it was by accident) couldn't dampen my happiness! We head to the Saltlik lounge probably every two weeks or so for some appetizers and beer.... More

Very good food. Steak was good Ribs seemed best. Nice wines. Service can seem a little overdone with lots of " is everything good for you ? " every thirty seconds but it did perform well. Better that than the other way around for certain. They were smart and polite. Nice mood in the location. Very buzzy. Good location. Reasonable... More

Just had a great meal at the Saltlik! Kudos to the kitchen staff who went above and beyond to accommodate our gluten free diners! One of our party of six was thrilled with the return of the Turkey Miso Burger (yeah!!); and the tacos, calamari, ribs, nachos, feta/cucumber dip and chorizo stuffed dates satisfied all. Special thanks to Peter for... More
