We enjoyed a lovely evening meal with friends here. Great menu choices. Beautiful views on the patio. You can eat in the pub or the restaurant which is above the pub. Both are great.More

Waldhaus Pub was truly awesome about the vegan-izing of their menu we went there twice during our three night stay at the Fairmont. Veggie pasta, soft pretzels with beer mustard, squash+veg paninis, salads, delish fries -- plenty of options. The staff was helpful in discerning...More

Situated in a charming building in the woods separate from the Fairmont Hotel, we had high hopes for this restaurant as we love German food. Excellent beer, good starters although pricey. The big disappointment was the schnitzel which was thin, dry and overcooked and accompanied...More
