The front part of this dining room overlooks the lake and makes this one of the most beautiful places to eat in the world. The food was the best it has been in any of the 4 visits that we have made to the lodge and most dishes that we selected were really delicious, the others were "just" nice. Unfortunately,... More

The food was faultless. A great choice on the menu, superbly cooked and seasoned and helpful, friendly service. Excellent, although very expensive - but definitely worth it if you are celebrating something special!

I treated myself to dinner here after hiking to the Mount Stephan Fossil Bed....and it was one of the best meals I have ever eaten! Meats cooked to perfection. Delicious. Great service. So good I went back again two night later.....for seconds. :) It's been three years...I hope to get back to the Rockies again someday and go to this... More
