This is a unique place right on the main drag in Banff. Its a fondue place housed in an old swingers club. And yes, there are phones at each table. We thought we'd do the whole "meat" deal but were slightly derailed. Several items on their exotic meats special were unavailable, so we doubled up on the Hunter Fondue Dinner.... More

A unique experience whereby you cook your own food on a hot rock. A good restaurant if you have the time; not for those in a rush. Beware, with all the cooking going on at every table there is a lot of smoke, grease odour. Don't wear any nice or special clothes, they'll smell for days.

From the outisde it looked great so ventured in. Inside was overcrowded with tables jammed togeather, music was also way to loud and it was very dark. Not very comfortable when you cant hear another speak. Food was not impressive, basic and not that great. Impressive meun that never delivered quality.

This restaurant is unique in almost every facet. Menu, service, atmosphere and value. The menu is very specialized with an assortment of exotic offerings. The service was excellent and quick. Drinks were outstanding.

Grizzly House has been in Banff for as long as I can remember, and still holds its 1970's Chic charms. The place is always busy and food is great. Do not go in expecting to not smell of cooking meats and oils however! The hot rock is highly recommended for cooking your main course - much healthier than the oil-based... More

Is there anything better than to take in the best grilled game lunch with fondue, chilled white wine and a cognac on the patio of the Grizzly house. The next best thing is to soak up the warm atmosphere inside.

I was really sceptical about this one and walking into a dark and weirdly decorated joint to eat fondue but we were in the mood and this place delivered! The decor is weird but it works if you let it sink in. There are phones on every table so you can actually call another table of strangers and wish them... More

Went in for a quick lunch stop. Menu was brilliant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was great, would like to go back for dinner. Only thing I didn't like was the smell on my clothes after leaving the restaurant, other than that no complaints!

Thank Chris S
