“Father's Day Brunch, then back for Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

wow, what excellent food. I ordered the rib eye eggs benedict which my brother was eyeing and he ordered the french toast stuffed with gruyere and bacon and topped with whipped cream and berries which I was eyeing. We split both and both devoured it all. It was so tasty and uniquely Canadian that I took my own family back for dinner the same night. They have a decent kids menu. Their salads are very unique, fresh and tasty, but small portions. The mains - we both had steak - were also unique, incredibly tasty, cooked to perfection and brought to our table piping hot. It is fine dining, but casual. highly recommended.

“Overpriced, underquality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This was priced to be a high class restaurant, but the food didn't follow suit in quality. I was very under impressed by everything, and I am not a hard person to please. The only thing they have going for them is that their food is organic and local. They just need to learn to cook it now.

“Outstanding Bison”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Great service, amazing food. The only downside is that they are not a gluten free friendly restaurant. Very little selection with those who have dietary need.

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We went by the suggestions here and so glad we did, best meal we had on our Rocky Mountaineer 9 day trip around BC except for the train meals. The Bison was exceptional food and I would definitely return there again for a dinner.
