4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Comfortable seating with log fire. Reasonable selection of beers (draft and bottled) and wines. Daily specials worth checking (and are published at teh pub every week in advance)

“Not disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I'd read glowing reviews of this restaurant, so I went in with high expectations. I dined solo on a Sunday evening, starting with a very nice cannelloni stuffed with lobster, then pan-seared salmon for the main course, with new potatoes and vegetables in a very distinctive presentation. To drink I quite enjoyed two glasses of New Zealand (Cloudy Bay) sauvignon blanc, then topped it off with coffee and one of their scrumptious ice-cream creations. The bill - without tip - was 115 CAD. The setting is quite invigorating, with a backdrop of snow-covered peaks, and the service upscale and attentive. I suppose I've had a few better meals in my life - but not many!

“Standard fare at inflated prices.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner here on our first night in Lake Louise. We were hungry and it was connected to our hotel. The room was very cozy. There was a fire in the fireplace which was a nice mountain touch. The server eas very friendly and attentive.

The food is fine but not anything special. The burger was very salty. The salmon was good though. The beer selection is poor. Prices for each were higher than warranted.

We were with our son who needed a highchair. Luckily we had a booster seat in the car as the highchairs on offer were thirty years old. The other issue was that they were unable/unwilling to make a child friendly portion of fish so we ordered an additional full meal which was annoying.

We did not go back the second night but went to the station restaurant which was amazing.

“Wait a minute!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This review is for their bar & grill, called the Outpost. One dinner, while watching the hockey game was great. We liked it so much, we went back again. The wait staff makes all the difference! As is timeout server could not have made more mistakes if she had tried. Food is very good, just make sure you ask for Sarah as your server.

“Casual dining at its finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

My wife and I had a truly memorable dinner at the Post. She was delighted by the entire separate vegetarian menu, and I went with the scallops appetizer and bison main course. Both were perfectly prepared and deliciously succulent. There is a very extensive wine list and an after dinner cigar lounge for those who fancy that. The deserts were first rate, though our waiter's demeanor changed completely when his feelings were hurt when my wife corrected him about the content of the pies just from what she saw on the pastry tray. Nobody knows pies better than my wife. Other than that, the service was first rate right from the main entrance doorman, through the lobby and into the dining room.
