Very good dinner

We had dinner at this fine restaurant on Valentine's Day. I have always wanted to eat here. We had a very good meal and excellent service. The room is beautiful and the view of Pyramid lake is awesome to say the least! Our appetizers were very tasty and our entrees were also very tasty. I would... read more

We were just there, we had dinner and breakfast there. The dinner experience was very fancy, a well executed attempt at creating a fine dinning experience. The food was also very good. The service here, like anywhere else on the resort was excellent.

We recently visited Jasper and stayed at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, where we balked at paying over $25 for bacon and eggs. Fortunately, Pyramid Lake Resort and the Pines Restaurant is a quick 15 minute drive away. We had breakfast there twice and had good experiences both times. On our first morning, the serve was prompt and very friendly.... More

My husband had the thanksgiving dinner, with the duck as an entree. He said everything was great. I had the caesar salad as an appetizer, which was huge and delicious. I chose the elk as an entree. I found it " chewy". I mentioned this to the server, who was very apologetic. She said she'd mention it to the chef... More

Terrific menu with elk and boar, fun desserts (loved the chocolate pyramid). We stayed at the resort fo also enjoyed an excellent breakfast variety with delicious crepes and banana bread french toast! Excellent serving staff, international youth enjoying Canada and on work visas. And the ambiance, great. A spectacular view of the mountain behind Pyramid Lake. If I lived in... More

We had heard good things about the Pines, but it was disappointing. While the view of the lake was wonderful, the food was just OK and our server was just going through the motions. The boar steak took inordinately long to arrive at our table, and when I told the waitress it was too rare (it had been ordered, on... More

The minute we arrived here another couple from Germany said that they knew we would enjoy our meal because they had dined here the night before and were returning. The location is so lovely and it is a joy to find a restaurant that matches the beauty of Jasper. The bread was amongst the best I have ever eaten so... More

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...
