We stayed at the lodge as part of a Backroads tour. Leary about hotel restaurants until we ate here! Wow! Doesn't get any better than this. Skip going into town for dinner, stay here. Food is phenomenal, we tried practically everything on the menu with our large crowd. Jesse the awesome manager just kept the food coming. Dinner here was... More

We camp in Jasper half a dozen times a year. We always visit at least one restaurant on every visit and with the exception of Tekarra, this is a great culinary wasteland. We have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. This time my wife ordered a glass of a "by the glass" Shiraz. I am... More

This is a great restaurant. I know many on here balk at the prices but its not that much more than other restaurants in Jasper. Plus, after dinner you can walk to the overview of the river for one of the most amazing sunsets you will ever watch. Wonderful place!

Jesse the Manager made this the best meal ever. He told us we would be there for 3 hours and we laughed. 3 1/2 hours later and we were just finishing up. Incredible meal and make sure to have the Bacon Jam cause you cant get that anywhere else.

The restaurant is located within the Tekarra lodge property but independently owned and operated. The food is absolutely fantastic. They have a wide variety of wine and beer, in addition to an extensive selection of mixed drinks. The dinner menu is creative and the three different entrees we had were all magnificent. During our visit to Jasper, we wanted to... More

This was recommended by the Alpine Village and we were glad we listened. The food was very tasty and the staff were very friendly. I would recommend the steak. There was a big party in when we went and so the wait was a little while but they coped very well. We would definitely go again.

Staying on site, ate here for friends 30th wedding anniversary. Warm welcome, and though not a vast menu, has sufficient choices. Very well prepared and presented food and drinks. Not rushed. Some other guests quite noise, and this made our conversation difficult to hear; could do with better lighting; and some bread or something to keep us going until lovely... More
