Came here after coming many years ago. Very disappointing. Took forever to be served just water. Steak returned 2 times before coming out sorta right. Ran out of baked potatoes before 8 pm. Really!! Cutlery had to be taken from side table since none was provided after food sent back. Absolutely no compensation on bill. Not returning.

Hello, Sorry to hear that the quality of service did not reach the standard that we set at the Saltlik. As far as the baked potatoes go we base our quantity prepared on previous sales in the week to ensure that the product is as fresh as possible. Unfortunately going against our recommendation by requesting a rare cook temperature on... More

I looked up the menu online. I knew what I wanted before we arrived. Went upstairs and it was very nice and comfortable. My wife looked at the menu while I fumbled to figure out what kind of beer to order. She looked at me and said she wanted appetizers. Perfect so did I !!! We ordered the curried cheese... More

Have visited here 4 times during our stay in Banff. Very relaxed bar area, waiting staff very attentive and polite. Even though Banff has a high throughput of workers all the staff at Saltlik are very knowledgeable about all products on offer.

We had a group of 30 for a business/family function. Servers handled it exceptionally well. Our food came out fast, hot and exactly as ordered. Prices had me shocked as all steaks are served a la carte and sides are huge, and pricey as all get out but it worked for our large groups. Nothing on the menu labelled Gluten... More

N51°10.671' W115°34.345' Lonely Planet writers found polished dining rooms abounds with rustic elegance during their visit and concluded that Saltlik could be number one in a town not short on steak restaurants. Saltlik gave us first an impression of a brewpub with loud music, big flat televisions everywhere and pub interior. Eating on a barstool? Not really! Where was the... More
