Nothing amazing but a god place to grab a bite

Traveked after Christmas on my way to Vancouver, had a soup , ok ( but not great ) and the so called pork wings, surprised ( in a good way ). Nice service , our waiter had a tatoo on his arm with a pork marked with different cuts, that I call dedication. Bit outdated and cold but a decent... read more

We were waiting for the Grayhound bus and this was a convenient place to sit down and relax. The poutine we enjoyed had actual cheese curds, and the fries were not those from frozen. They could improve the gravy somewhat. Excellent service!

Looks interesting from the outside like an old saloon town. The restaurant is dismal, dark, bad. The staff try their best but seriously don't bother.

The service was great, really nice kid. He was training a new cook while serving us and did a great job keeping us entertained. The food took about 45 minutes to arrive. We ordered blueberry pancakes, corned beef hash, and chicken quesedilla. The blueberry pancakes came without blueberries and we're dry. The corned beef hash was actually served with HAM... More

I've been stopping into Revelstoke on and off for 20 years now. The Frontier was my favourite restaurant, and one of the better ones anywhere. What a disappointment! Seems to be in a bit of a shambles (milk shake machine not working, draft beer not available because of broken machinery). Menu still the same, but the food just didn't quite... More

Haven't eaten there in many years and wish I could still say the same. Terrible service, food, and the place was filthy. Hang a left at the next light and hit up Nomad's under the overpass and on the right. You'll thank me!

Have not been here for many years. Brought my young kids for a trip to the enchanted forest and this was a good memory for my wife and I. Wow have things changed. We politely paid our bill after such things as the server bringing syrup to the table with a ribbon of dry. Syrup streaming off the dispenser and... More

We felt like having a good meal, so instead of going to McDonalds, we stopped in at this restaurant. The service was good and the meal was also real good. This is another place that has suffered with the likes of McDonalds and other cheap fastfood restaurants moving in. My wife had a chicken salad and I had a pound... More

The restaurant was freezing cold. Another customer sent their uncooked eggs back, and so did we. The food in General was poor. The waitress was rude and not properly trained.
