Description: The Kicking Horse Grill, Golden's only Steak & Seafood restaurant. Located in a historic log building mere minutes from downtown. Over the years we have developed an international reputation for quality food, and exceptional service. We trim and cut our prime Alberta beef to order in house. Enjoy locally farmed buffalo ribs, thick cut pork chops, or a fresh seafood selection that brings the ocean to our doorstep. Fresh ahi tuna, steelhead, and wild sea scallops, delivered to us twice weekly from all over the continent. We look forward to meeting you at The grill! Chris and Martijn

“Good honest food, unfortunately closing after August”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Was tipped in the lonely planet as a good place to have dinner. Food was cooked very good with fresh ingredients, you could taste it. Really liked my salmon. Bit pricy but worth it.
The owner told me he was closing down end of August, we were the only guests that night.

“Wonderful Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I ate here to celebrate our engagement and it was wonderful! The atmosphere was lovely, quite cozy. There is a very large patio out front if just there for drinks. I had a spinach salad with chicken which was very good and my fiancé had a steak which was just slightly over cooked. You can't get many wines by the glass which was disappointing but oh well. If we are ever in Golden again we will be going back to the Kicking Horse Grill

“Best steaks of our holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We came across this restaurant walking through Golden and it looked very nice. It turned out we had our best steak dinner during our 4 week holiday in Canada right here! The steaks were delicious and cooked to perfection.

We were served by the owner. The place was quite full (we opted for the nice outdoor terrace) and still service was fast, friendly and personal. It turned out he was originally from Holland as well, so we had a little chat about that.

Don't miss this restaurant when you are in Golden.

“Good food but a bit expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

The food was very tasty but the house wine was a bit too sour... but pricy. Since Golden is a small town we didn't expect the restaurant to be so expensive. The service was good in any case.
