“A great place to eat in Jasper!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Our hiking guide recommended Evil Dave's to my wife and me, and we're very happy that she did. It's not a big place, but the night we were there it was a busy place! We had reservations which they immediately honored. Our waitperson was friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu. She had several tables to cover as did the other two waitstaff I saw, but she did it well and the wait for our food wasn't too bad. The menu is limited but very nice, and the chef leans to somewhat of an Asian flair with some of the dishes. Evil Dave's is centrally located in downtown Jasper.

“Make a reservation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We booked a reservation a week before we went to make sure we got a table. Last time we were there in January we couldn't get in. It was still about a 20 minute wait even with the reservation . . . the front entrance was packed and the majority of people did have a reservation. Although I believe they allow children, it's not super kid friendly. Luckily, we didn't have kids with us.

We didn't mind the wait because it was a super casual night for us and we weren't starving. I wasn't really sure why there was a wait other than just time management/understaffing issues because there were about 3-4 empty tables.

The food was fantastic!! I had the blackened salmon which was amazing. It was perfect. We got the coconut shrimp as a starter which was small but also really yummy. My friend got the evil chicken (or something) and she really enjoyed it as well. We also ordered the little brownie desert to share . . . you don't need to share. It's super small, perfect for one after a great meal. Intensely rich. So good with coffee!

Would return to try a few other dishes. Loved the atmosphere. The service was just ok . . . but better than many places we noticed in Jasper.

Thank you for your positive review. October was busier than we had thought and several evenings we were a little overwhelmed. Nice to have some Edmontonians in for dinner, it means a lot to us. The Hells' Chicken dish is very popular, it's a Caribbean influenced dish with our little fusion twist. Thanks again for dining with us!

“Brilliant Steak and Salmon with a Twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

My partner and I visited Evil Dave's in Jasper, we didn't have a reservation but we weren't waiting very long.Decor was interesting with Asian accents as well as neon signs above the bar, Tables were close but not claustrophobic at all.

The food was wonderful, I have their signature Salmon dish and it tasted wonderful. My partner got the steak and rated it the best Steak he's ever had. As i mentioned they're seems to be a slight twist to ever dish weather it be Asian/Mexican spicing to take it to the next level or quality of ingredients to make sure its cut above the rest.

Service was helpful and friendly. Best food experience in Jasper we had!

Thank you for your kind words. We love to play around with fusion and lean heavily on pan-asian flavours. Chef Carlos can't help but add his Mexican touch to dishes, especially weekend features. We actually just catered a five course "Day of the Dead" themed meal for a fundraiser. He made Duck mole with rustic rice for an entree. Muy Bueno!

“Nice place to eat , recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I ate here on our recent trip to jasper. We got the calamari as an appetizer and it was by far the best calamari we have had. My husband loved the bison meatloaf, highly recommended. The waitress was great too !

“The best service we had on our trip to Canada!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We had a wonderful night here in August the food was fabulous, everything we hoped for and the service was impeccable. Thank you for not bringing our bill before we had finished, we really appreciated what we regard as excellent service. The food is innovative and delicious....don't miss out on the delicious desserts. Make sure you book, the restaurant gets very busy.
