Good food, average service

We had dinner in the lodge during our stay at the Fairmont next door. We had very high expectations and were a little disappointed by the clearly brand new waiter, who had no real knowledge about the menu and wine list. He was kind of lost but super friendly and he tried hard. He could have used... read more

We're money conscious people, and this was a low blow. The prices were thru the roof, and the food that you got served was minimally appetizing.

Went to the Deer Lodge for dinner and we were very disappointed in the food. Small portions with a large price. The service was average alone with the decor, we really expected more from this restaurant in this location.

Very quiet place, almost empty when we went. Menu was rustic fare with French flair but it has changed over the years.

This place is not bad considering it's in a hamlet of Alberta. Its got great history and the place itself tells a story. Very friendly and attentive staff. The restaurant has great prices on variety of item in the menu. Because it is an old building, the heat is unbearable. I ended up leaving a crack on my window to... More

We have either stayed and/or dined at Deer Lodge during the Christmas holidays as a family since the late 1990's. We had both a lunch and a dinner at the Lodge this year and were not disappointed. The service was good and the food was better - especially dishes involving local game and ingredients. We would recommend Deer Lodge dining... More

We had a large party and we were one of only a couple of parties in the dining room. We received decent service. We saw a martin or similar outside the window while sitting at our table. Food was good and wine recommendations were well received. Caribou drew the most positive reviews although one of the medium rare orders was... More
