“Overpriced for average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Like everything else at Lake Louise, the Glacier Saloon is over priced but totally average. It's just another pub with mediocre service and unremarkable food. It's only the spot you go when you can't get in anywhere else better or everything else is closed for the night.

“Great Wings and Pints!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We decided to go to the saloon for a wing and pint night to get away from the fine dining. Great choice as it was a full house with a Sens Leaf game on the screens! The chili thai and hot wings were very meaty but hot ...... Is hot! The butter chicken poutine is tasty and cheesy but you have to like the butter chicken sauce... They had a good selection of pints and they were cold and just what we needed! Service and ambiance was great....Would definitely return!

“Pub Style Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

No reservations were required at this pub style restaurant at the Fairmont Lake Louise - although we did go down and put our name on the list - and they called us 30 minutes later when our table was ready. The food was excellent, and a little less "pricey" than the other restaurants.

“lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

i recently spent time at chateau lake louise showing our visitors the beauty...in one week I manged to get a delicious fish meal for my son and the same week we receive the same dish that my son would eat - when I tried it I realized it was not good and had to send it back. I did notice on this order it came with a dipping sauce that was not mentioned on the menu nor did we receive it days prior...I truly believe the chef knew the fish was not fish and gave it to the kids figuring they would dip it in the sauce and not realize the tast...I was quite disappointed. This is the first bad experience I have had at this hotel in the many visits we have made there.

“Its slowly going downhill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I'm sorry to say that this place is slowly going downhill from when we first started going. Every year we choose a new hike/mountain to climb at Lake Louise and after our hike we always come to the Glacier Saloon. We always used to order some skillet platter that they had on the menu. That was our thing, a few beers and the skillet platter. Unfortunately the platter has gone downhill in size and quality, but up in price. I cannot even recommend what used to be my favorite place in Lake Louise. It is still a pretty Saloon, particularly the patio, that overlooks the lake. But for us, year after year we continue to be disappointed.
