Great Place to Eat

We had a very enjoyable meal (dinner) in the restaurant. The service was excellent and the waiters most helpful. Would recommend the experience

Marginal food quality can be forgiven when the service makes up for it. That did not happen. Bland food and we had to get our salt and pepper from an empty table as we only saw our server when he dropped the food off and came back to pick the dishes up. This is a world class area of the... More

Great restaurant with high quality well cooked food and excellent service. Could not fault the food started with roast beet salad followed by elk and apple crumble to finish. You will pay a little more but worth every penny (wine on the pricy side). Atmosphere was great with a beautiful snowy scene outside but very cosy inside. We will go... More

My husband and I had planned to ring in New Year's 2016 with friends and did so at Deer Lodge. What an incredible experience - from the staff going above and beyond to accommodate our group of 7 with a check-in well ahead of their 4pm check-in time, to welcoming us with a delicious gift from the CRMR kitchen, to...

We chose to have a mid afternoon meal and the restaurant was not crowded. There was a limited menu, but the food we had was some of the best on our entire trip. Would definitely go there again when visiting Lake Louise.

The restaurant was moderately busy and the hostess sat us a little away from other tables with an outdoor view. They have an extensive wine list, both expensive and moderately priced. Our server, Cole was excellent. Friendly and helpful without overdoing it. We began with the charcuterie and enjoyed this immensely. We wanted to share an entree after having such... More

Glad you had an excellent evening with us at Deer Lodge, enjoying our Rocky Mountain Cuisine. The bison actually comes from our own game farm, ethically raised just south of Calgary in the foothills. We will pass on your kind words to Cole, and hopefully we will see you again in the near future. More

Ate in the restaurant, limited menu and quite expensive. Only realised on way out that we could have eaten in bar with more reasonably priced fare and restaurant was no better venue wise.

Their rooftop hot tub allows you you enjoy the beauful surrounding mountains. Staff are friendly and helpful. There are 2 restaurants on site. The lounge serves much of the... More
