“Favourite after hiking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Bill Peyto's has been a family favourite for years. We used to come here after a few days of backpacking and meals on the trail for a welcome back to civilization meal. The food is good and hearty and very reasonable. They serve up excellent breakfasts giving a great start to a day out hiking or just visiting beautiful spots around the Park. The lunches and dinners are good too, with tasty burgers and a variety of other pub style food. Bill Peyto's is attached to the hostel in Lake Louise and has a warm wood interior and is decorated with climbing gear and photos.. Although we no longer do much hiking and mostly site see from the car, I would still highly recommend this great little place.

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Good simple food. Would never have known about it (found in one of my guidebooks). Tucked away in an International Hostel. Chili was hearty and satisfying. Burgers and fries (those fries were pretty amazing). Greek wraps. Salads. Everything was fresh and tasty, Not a fancy place. But, prices are reasonable and food was very good.

“Lunch at Bill Peyto's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Had lunch here during a recent stay at Lake Louise. Was a little wary of "hostel" location, but it was great. Sat on deck and shared a burger and fries (plenty for two of us). Free WiFi. Very pleasant and well kept place.

“Excellent balance of economy and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Great food, best prices for the area. We ate there 4x during our trip and every item the four of us ordered was unique and delicious. It is located inside the IH hostel in Lake Louise-excellent quality. The side salads are great and I like the open kitchen.
