Huge (and Good) Burgers

We had burgers for lunch in the Lakeview Lounge at Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise last week. The burgers and fries were very good and huge! Best of all, we enjoyed them at a window table with a great view of the frozen lake and the beautiful Canadian Rockies.

We went to Lake Louise yesterday on a day trip from Calgary and I had wanted to eat lunch at the Lakeview Lounge for my birthday. We waited until the lunch rush had subsided, and at 1:30PM got in line to get a table. The lounge was at most 50% full, with empty tables everywhere, yet we were told that... More

Wonderful view. That's why we chose there to have lunch. Service was good. Food was tasty. Go to there at non-peak time so you can ask for a table next to a window.

would never believe a restaurant inside such an elegant hotel could serve such disgusting food!!! The hamburger for my kid was horribly dry and tasteless, the butter chicken had almost no sauce, the duck confit something my wife had was exactly something she was not sure what she had and my youngest son had a burnt pepperoni pizza topping. all...

We were drawn to the Lakeview Lounge as we walked through the hotel. The grand window that for me showcases the lake was a must do! The atmosphere warm and inviting. We were greeted by a cheerful person and seated promptly. The cocktail menu had something for everyone and prices very reasonable. We ordered plates to share and to our... More

The location of the Lakeview Lounge is stunning viewing over the frozen lake and the ice sculptures. The food is excellent and the staff are amazing. We had High Tea one afternoon, a great way to spend the afternoon, looking at the view and having a beautiful High Tea.

I had lunch here while my family skied and I greatly enjoyed it. The view is stunning and makes the price of the food feel a bit more worth it. As with any restaurant in the hotel, be prepared to pay a lot! The truffle parmesan fries were fantastic!

Located inside the Fairmont Hotel, this Lakeview lounge has a great view of Lake Louise. We stayed at the hotel during Ice Magic and had a late lunch here. Menu is mainly snacks, only limited main course selection. My husband ordered the chicken curry and I had the burger with soup and we were both surprisingly pleased. They were served... More
