My family and I always enjoy eating game in a restaurant, as I don't cook it much at home. My recently ate here for dinner and were very impressed with the entire meal. The restaurant is in a beautiful location with all the windows overlooking Pyramid Lake. It is less than 6 km from the main part of Jasper and... More

The food here is very, very good. The portions are well sized and dishes have such great flavor! The atmosphere and view make it even better. Service was great too! Definitely recommend.

Through our weekend trip, we were a tad disappointed in what Jasper had to offer in terms of the dining scene, so for our last meal, breakfast on the holiday Monday, we decided to go to Pines, since, if the food was just as bland and average as most of the other places, at least we would have a nice...

We couldn't decide where to eat so went up to Pyramid Lake for a drive. Dropped in at The Pines Restaurant and didn't have a reservation. Had no problem getting in. Had the beef tenderloin and it was fantastic. The meat was so tender you could cut it with a fork. The best meal I had while in Jasper.

We decided to travel up the Pyramid Lake road to this great dining room for the view and sunset but stayed for the great food. This was the first time e have had shrimp wrapped in wild boar bacon and we are now huge fans. And the elk strips on skewers were excellent. For the main meal, we tried the... More

This was our groups' best meal in the Rockies on a 5 day tour from Jasper to Banff - the wild boar is still be talked about!. Excellent food, great taste, good portions, and a nice view of Pyramid Lake. Two of our group had complicated food allergies, and they were able to accommodate. Better than our meal at the... More

I have to say, my expectations were low going into the restaurant. We were staying in the hotel and thought it would likely be pub food, nothing special. To our surprise we were seated by the window with a glorious view of Pyramid Lake. If nothing else the ambiance was great. Lucky for us the menu was great too! We... More

25 years ago we were up in the Jasper area and never had an experience like this. This trip will be fondly remembered because of this meal. The location of this restaurant (just a short drive north of Jasper towards the lakes) at the tip of a beautiful lake that you can see from the dining room is just the... More

A truly amazing location. Lovely views over the lake. Food was excellent, beautifully cooked when it arrived. Service was odd. They said we could have a table and then we were waiting to sit down and then having sat down the starter arrived 50 minutes later. We were warned it would be slow after we had ordered! No complimentary drinks... More
