The food is pricey, of course, but in a place like this half of what you pay is because of its location; the menu is outside, so there's no reason to complain about the prices after you've been there. The terrace was lovely, but you don't really enjoy the whole view of the lake, which is actually behind the building.... More

We ate here for a late lunch recently after a days hiking at nearby Lake O'Hara. The food,being kind here..was mediocre at best. We ordered a Caesar salad,pulled pork sandwich and Quesadilla. Firstly the Caesar salad was possibly the worst we've ever eaten...a lettuce heart cut in quarters with a very vinegary dressing drizzled on top along with one strip... More

The food is alright but slightly expensive. No vegetarian options. There is a cafe attached which sells cheaper food like sandwiches on the side. We overlooked it otherwise would have dined there. Lake view is the only thing good there.

After a long day at gorgeous emerald lake I wanted something hot for dinner so we stopped by here. What a mistake. DO NOT EAT HERE UNLESS YOU LIKE GETTING RIPPED OFF AND COLD FOOD!! Ordered the pork ribs thinking yum! Before my food was served I could hear the next table as they paid their bill saying the food... More

Great service with a spectacular patio view. The food is pricey but good. The selection allows most people to find something tempting.

Nothing good to say about this place except for its location. And TripAdvisor wants me to say more! I got nothing. Really.

Really pretty setting for a relaxing drink after a busy day. It has lovely views looking over the lake. The only downside is we arrived late afternoon and they had stopped serving food and there wasn't anything nearby to get a snack.

We had lunch here and were very happy with the service as well as the ambiance if the place . The patio outside is great and has amazing views - combine that with great food and you have a winner !!

The food is fine, the terrace overlooks the lake and there is really no other choice at Emerald Lake. It's a place for a good quality snack meal rather than a fine dine.

It's all about sitting outdoors watching canoes go by on the Emerald green lake. Food and service is good. Bring a jacket as the breeze off the mountain lake does get chilly
