The 4 of us all had something different and we were all pleased. So again, I'd say you can't go wrong with anything you order.

This being our second visit to Banff in recent years I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Interesting restaurant with some history. We had a deep dish pizza which was quite good and a Caeser Salad which was also quite tasty.

This place is a gem. Great food, good atmosphere and friendly staff. They will even bring cuts of steak out for you to choose which type you would prefer. Not the the cheapest but definitely one of the best in Banff. Warning!! It is popular so in my view booking is recommended.

Whenever in Banff this is always the place to stop by for either breakfast, lunch or dinner. My husband and I had breakfast this morning and as usual did not disappoint. Friendly staff, varied menu options and great portion sizes.

The decor was more basic than I had expected, however the steak that I had was nothing short of spectacular. I read many of the Tripadvisor reviews and was expecting a whole lot worse. I was very impressed with this restaurant.

We ate here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals were incredible and so was the service. Had homemade soup and maple glazed salmon for lunch. For dinner we both had prime rib and split a lobster tail. Everything was perfect. Cheesecake for dessert which was also great.

Thank David P
