The Tekarra Restaurant is located at the Tekarra Lodge on Hwy 93A a few miles out of town. The Lodge is a series of rustic cabins dating back to the 40s and 50s and reasonably well maintained. The restaurant is very high end with a focus on food presentation of their ala carte menu with small, creative portions. My wife... More

An email confirmation followed promptly. This dinner was to celebrate our anniversary and everything that night was superb. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the great weather (and... More

When visiting Jasper we are all ways sure to stop at Tekarra. The food is excellent. Best priced martini's in town, I usually have a few. In addition to the appetizers are the mini samplers, I am sure to have a few of these as well. I do not encounter this at many other places and I think it is... More

This was a terrific meal just outside the crowded little town of Jasper. Our server, Liz, was great and led us to two outstanding dishes. This is a can't miss for anyone looking for a nicer meal in Jasper.

We had a lovely meal at this rustic restaurant in a cabin park. The trio of salmon was excellent and the highlight of our meal. Everything we had was delicious. Highly recommend when in Jasper.

We went to Tekarra based on everyone's rave reviews, but we were a little disappointed. The restaurant is cozy enough, and the girl serving us was very efficient. However, our meal was not that great. I had their chicken, but half the chicken was overcooked, while the potato was undercooked. Fortunately our waitress had kept us supplied with bread (which...

Third time here. Always good. Excellent food and menu options. Servers always first rate and knowledgeable. Handled children well. Can be a tad noisy if full (which it usually is).
