Chinese Food is over priced on menu

Food is way overpriced for the portion and quality. Servers gave us the wrong bill and charged us for an extra rice that we cancelled already. Not recommended unless you are desperate for sub par Chinese food.

We stopped here because we didn't want to pay the extreme prices at Chateau Lake Louise . This is a regular diner, lots of good food (fries, grilled cheese, burgers, etc) for great prices - we were surprised how inexpensive the food was! Service was good - they get a lot of bus tours but we had just gotten there... More

Loved the vibe and view !! We only had cocktails and a snack but the service was great as were the drinks. It's very busy and a bit loud but it was the weekend and people were buzzing everywhere. The view of Lake Louise was great so no matter where you sat it was a very pleasant view.

You hope you are finding the place where the snow plow drivers and lift engineers fill up after a hard day: upstairs above a mall, with undecorated stairs up, plain decor and quite full. Sadly, not the case: plain, tasteless food and not cheap. I suppose the locals get their carbs and fats somewhere else.

From other reviews should have tried the Chinese food. The Canadian food was poor and the decor is tired and uninspiring. Service was OK.

It is a schizophrenic Cafe. Part truck stop greasy spoon, part Chinese restaurant and part aspirational tourist restaurant. Unfortunately it needs a complete renovation, a menu rewrite and customer service training for staff. The portion sizes were quite large and the food average. It is extremely expensive for the experience and food quality.

The Grill and Bar has two different sides to it during the day the restaurant side deals with tourist and tour buses while the bar side has a slower local vibe. At night the restaurant is closed and the bar side gets busy with local action. The bar tends to deal with long time locals and ski bums. It has... More

This hidden gem can be found in the Samson Mall Village in Lake Louise! It's in a very understated area, between the public toilets and souvenir shop! The decor is worn and old- and somewhat disconcerting on first impressions but our waitress was warm and attentive and our outlook into the snow covered woods was the rose among the thorns!... More

I'v been there a couple times with friends (as "the local" and me being new to town) just for a drink and a game of pool and was ok. Just don't ask for anymore than that. I made the mistake taking my friends that were visiting there for dinner. Then started by placing an order and the barman replies "what... More
