Staff has a hard time managing a full restaurant. Food is not good. Forced to go there as part of a small tour. New owners need to look at hiring more people or not taking in more than one tour group at a time.

Very good service, excellent food, menu at dinner a little limited (salmon, pork chop and burger) but breakfast was superb. Nice craft beer selection. Would definitely go back.

People great, service great. Very welcoming in all ways and after some fine starters (beet salad/chicken skewers) we were all set for an impressive main event, the local stew. But uh, oh. The meat was overcooked and the root veg (apart from potatoes) were almost raw. A real shame. However, giving the benefit of the doubt we returned the following... More

We deliberately went out of way to eat here based on other Trip Advisor members comments, and we are so glad we did. Tucked away on the Bow Valley Parkway, we enjoyed a delicious meal in a comfy cabin atmosphere. The fact that it was rainy and foggy out when we arrived simply added to ambience of this wooden building... More

Small, make reservation, prepare to have a great meal. Very good food for a lot less money than anywhere else we ate at Lake Louise. Also, if I was going to do a ski holiday I would stay here.

We have been going to Baker Creek bistro for several years. We always had good service. When went recently - we were directed to a table but nonone came to take our order within twenty minutes. We left There are only three items on the menu now:pizza,hamburder and a salad.

We had dinner here one night due to the glowing review we got from 2 couples we met at the grocery store! Our server was amazing and the food was fantastic! You won't want to miss this restaurant on the Bow Valley Pkway!

Stayed in the cabins in 1994 and have ALWAYS wanted to go back so now we did!! They are wonder warm cozy and off the beaten path. Clean and all staff is very friendly. The bistro has a limited menu but everything is delicious. Start with the baker creek breakfast or the French toast. For dinner my hubby had the... More

The menu is innovative and reflects local items. We had a reservation for six and were quickly seated. There are many meal and beverage choices albeit some wine was unavailable. Portions are very generous: recommend sharing if light eaters. Initially service was very attentive, however, our server was conspicuous by his absence after the mains. We would have considered dessert... More

My girlfriend and I ate here one night for supper when we were stayong out there and oh my the food was very very good. The place was a very nice little place with a good "mountain lodge" feel to it. First we got the cheese dip which I think I can speak for both of us saying that it... More
