We asked the woman at the visitor centre for some place relatively inexpensive and she said this is where the locals go. As we walked in an older couple told us not to have the short ribs. It turned out the special was Hawaiian short ribs. How did that sound like a good idea? Anyway, the atmosphere is a bar... More

The atmosphere was good. The burger I got was good, not great. I would recommend going to this restaurant.

Decided not to go out so used this restaurant as it is attached to the hotel. Food was fine, we were bit sceptical as receptionist told us they get very busy and long queues form waiting to go in but we went as late as possible and it was no problem.

Arrived at our destination arriving late at lake Louise Inn. The front desk told us we could eat downstairs at the Explorer's Lounge. The food wasn't exceptional but well presented and arrived quickly - which was good for us as we were hungry after travelling all of the day. Food was average rather than exceptional... but no complaints.

Recently spent the night at the Lake Louise Inn and as we arrived late we decided to just have supper at the Explorer's Lounge. Feature of the day was a Half Chicken with fries or salad which myself and my wife had. Our daughter had the Bison Burger. All 3 meals were very good and the server was very attentive.... More

Service was friendly and good. The food was about average. Its a bit "fancier" than your standard American Pub, which adds some quality to the food. The portions were good size. I had the bison burger, which was pretty good. Their sweet potato fires are also good. My wife had the Prime Rib sandwich which was a very fat rich... More

We stopped here after asking the locals for a "cheap" place to eat. We got the blackened chicken sandwich and salad (pretty spicy) and the chicken wings and fries. Both meals were prepared great the the staff was so friendly.

Really nice servers, cool bar menu - a cut above what you'd expect for a hotel bar. My husband had the bison burger which he loved and I chose a platter with red pepper hummus, spinach artichoke dip with baguette slices and an array of fresh veggies - it was an appetizer but just right for a light meal!
