“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Our food was good and the service was ok. I needed to ask for water. I liked that it had "typical" food as many restauants in Banff are a little over the top.

“Wonderful Alberta Beef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

We were a family of 8 and everyone loved their meal . My tenderloin was perfect . The salads are included which helps with the bill. Friendly service. Would go back.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

You get so much food here and the staff are a delight. I have to recommend the ribeye. You get salad and bread to start (included with your main) and sauce too. Awesome. Ate here twice in a week!

“THE breakfast spot?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

I've always eaten at this restaurant for breakfast, it seems like THE breakfast spot in Banff. Lately I've been wondering if there isn't a better choice. First of all, the prices are very reasonable, the service is great, and the food is delicious. However, there is always a wait, and as much as they'll try to accommodate you if you're a Celiac, it seems you'll probably have a reaction no matter what you order off the menu here. With all the places that have gluten free options on the menu, I'm surprised that Melissa's doesn't. Most of the food is still delicious, however, and I love all the flags!
