We travel between Vancouver and northern Alberta quite often using Valemount or Jasper as a stopover most times. In Valemount we tend to alternate between Great Escape and Cariboo Grill for our dinner. The food served at the former establishment is about average, and the best thing about it is that you can order a small portion if you are... More

We stopped for lunch on way through. My buddy had a clubhouse, I had a veggie sandwich. Sandwiches were great. Onion rings were ordinary. Coffee needed help. Service was fine. I'd probably stop again on the strength of the sandwiches.

The cafe portion of the restaurant was the only part open at the time of the visit. Food was great and staff as well.

Not fancy - more of a diner, but a good meal & good value: dinner for two with beer & large glass of wine for under $40. Spaghetti & meatballs was great - home cooked meat sauce.

We have passed through Valemount a few times and always like to go here for breakfast. The food is great. The service is wonderful and the prices right on. Very clean and quick service. We have never beeen disapponted here. I believe the entrees are homemade on the menu. They better keep that cook.

This is a must for anyone who enjoys a down home hearty breakfast. Just off the highway it is quite plain, but the service and food is excellent. Hey the last time we were there they had gluten free toast. Wow.

We had a somewhat average steak, but enjoyed the service, the beer and the baked potato. Not much in the décor department. Good location next door to our hotel, though.

and it's a small town family diner. Your choices in Valemount are pretty much the Great Escape (my favorite movie as a kid by the way) or the grill down the road where you'll spend around $60 for two. At the Great Escape you can do well for half that or less. Our waitress was very nice and the service... More

We recently stopped here on our way to Jasper. This place was recommended by a few of the local people. Not much to look at from the outside but the food was great. Large portions with affordable prices. The service was friendly and with only one staff on she did really well. She brought the food out while it was... More
