Fabulous. A great meal and the kids can order pizza and you can have a wonderful and different salad etc.

The waiter explained everything so well. We went back the next night and on our way home we made sure we stopped for lunch. Great food. Only a little more expensive than the BBQ place and world apart. Nice presentation. I so wish we had a place with a menu like this in Seattle.

The food at Turning Point is very tasty. They are known for their pizza and it is very good. We also tried the beer, onion and cheese dip which was also delicious. The service was painfully slow which made a quick stop for a dinner on the road, a lot longer than hoped. There seem to be lots of staff... More

My wife and I had dinner here on a recent trip through Golden. We enjoyed an excellent meal. I had the 8oz Top Sirloin and my wife had the Parmesan Rocket Salad. Both were excellent. My steak was maybe just slightly overcooked, but still very juicy and tender - very acceptable for me. (I need to eat gluten free, and... More

After a long day stuck in the mountains with bad weather, we needed a nice relaxing meal. The Turning Point Restaurant served just that purpose. We both had specials and they were excellent. The buffalo ribs were amazing and very much worth the price. The waiter did some selling and managed to convince us to get a cheese cake claiming... More

The staff were excellent (pleasant and attentive). The drinks were delicious and the food selection surprising. My husband and I each ordered an appetizer and main course and were very pleased. Must stop in while in Golden!

We came here because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. Food was good, but for the price we were not too convinced. It feels overrated and slightly overpriced. Still good service and food. Note: don't get Mojito there, it lacks alcohol and is too sweet.

Delicious fresh bruschetta. Great seasoned fries and gravy. Enjoyable chicken club sandwich and chicken BLT wrap. Would definitely go back next time we're in town. Friendly helpful server.

It was a happy surprise that we stumbled on this restaurant. Usually, when driving through Golden, we stick to the restaurants on the TransCanada strip. We won't do that in the future as we have been short changing ourselves and selling Golden short. The food and service at the Turning Point was very good dining, indeed. They pride themselves of...

We stayed in Golden en route to Kelowna. Our son has celiac disease and we searched for a restaurant that has gluten free options. Turning Point was a great choice. They had a number of options on the menu, including pizza, pasta, and steak. My son had steak and did not experience any stomach issues. The others in our party... More

Our family stopped in here for a early supper, we were staying on the mountain for a week and wanted a place to eat to take the kids along where we knew they would enjoy their meals. Our waiter was very friendly and a real treat to have if you have a small, difficult child that easily gets bored and... More
