The views alone make this a great spot to sit and have a drink after arriving at the fairmount! The food and drinks were good but the view is what you're there for and it does not disappoint.

This is a come and go place to eat. We had lunch here and it was super. The food was tasty and the service was over the top. Very friendly staff and you will have to ask them were they are from.

The perfect place for a casual drink and a light dinner. The view has to be the finest in the world. Food choices are numerous. I had the salmon lite plate and it was perfect for a small meal. The sandwiches are also high level and great choices. The chicken club with chips is also a great choice. I have... More

What better place to enjoy an afternoon drink at this lounge with a beautiful view of Lake Louise and the Victoria glacier. Request an outside table to have a drink and dinner if you so desire. Service was quick and servers very hospitable.

We ate a casual dinner here, at an outside table in late-July. Can't beat the views. The food was good, and although the menu wasn't ambitious, here was enough of a variety that you'll find something you like. The inside restaurant tends to become very crowded during the day with the day tourists.

Although on a busy summer weekend, yet after you are seated you don't get the feeling that you are being rushed for next waiting guest. We started with a variety of soups.

There is a cover charge to sit on the patio which sucks but it is worth the 4 dollars each. The view from the patio is of the lake and is just the ultimate. I had the confit chicken sandwich and it was excellent. Had the caesar salad and it was odd in that it had bacon bits on it... More

I honestly cannot recall what we ordered because the views are so incredible that they are what I remember. That and the knowledgeable bartender (forgot his name). Take advantage of the underground parking and have the front dest validate your card for free parking.
