We took an evening trek up to Storm Mountain Lodge for dinner from Banff, where we were staying. In the dark, you could easily miss it if you weren't paying attention and looking for the sign. The lodge and restaurant is a log cabin tucked up into the hill. Our server was very pleasant and greeted us promptly. However, after ordering, things went a bit slow. It appeared to be the kitchen that was holding things up, as our drinks and bread came out quickly.
The server did a great job as she was overseeing all the tables herself. There were only about 10-12 tables, but this place has clearly created a name for itself. The food was delicious, though we found it to be very salty. I had the bison tenderloin, which was delicious, although rather overcooked. The boys had the short ribs, which they liked a lot, but again, found everything salty. My girlfriend had the stuffed chicken, which she enjoyed as well. We were so full after appetizers and entrees, we couldn't manage dessert.
Overall, great ambiance, food service was slow and too salty, but great experience.
