Thank you for choosing to explore the Caribou Grill Restaurant in Valemount, British Columbia! We offer: Prime Rib AAA Sterling Silver Beef Wild Salmon Venison Seafood Pasta Kids Menu Vegetarian Options All meals include a basket of our freshly baked Cheese Bread. About Our Restaurant Your hosts Patricia and Rudi Thoni began construction of their authentic log building in the summer of 1998 and opened for business in May 1999. The interior reflects the back woods log cabin theme with beautiful wildlife mounts, native artifacts, leather art and comfortable high back chairs. The incredible beauty that surrounds Valemount is what brought Rudi and Patricia to the area and is what keeps them here. If you are looking for a short hike or to stay in one of our local backcountry cabins, please inquire with Patricia for some tips on the great hiking opportunities or to book a cabin.

For a small northern town, the Caribou Grill is well above average. The log cabin styling and great food choices are not what I expected. The food was tasty and prepared just right. The waitress was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. They have a chili that is exceptional. A good place to eat.

The restaurant is a large, pleasant and comfortable log cabin with lots of open space for tables. Service was friendly, so it was a fun place to eat. The food was good, my wife raved about her prime rib, however the fish dishes we ordered were just average. It's not haute cuisine but an enjoyable place to eat.

On a recent motorcycle trip through Alberta and British Columbia from my home in Prince Edward Island, I stopped over at picturesque Valemount B.C. It was a superb day, temperature on the passable side of 'hot' sunny skies and virtually no tourists about. That may have been part of the problem for you see... after walking the entire length of...

This is really a wonderful place in such a small town. We had such a great dinner, pork tenderloin for me and my husband had steak. Tasty sides and bread. Service was great and we brought in a bottle of wine from home with a $10 corkage. Just don't be expecting a Seattle or Vancouver type experience and you will... More

Enjoyed a fantastic prime rib dinner tonight. Service was great - friendly and quick. Nice fresh veg.... Great wine! We were so full we didn't have room for dessert. We'd definitely come back here if travelling in the area again.
