Great setting with mountain Lodge feel. We tried the elk and buffalo. There are lots of other food options for the less adventurous in your party.

We had breakfast here on our way to Calgary. The food was awesome and the waitress was top notch. Will definitely stop by there again on our next trip.

We eat here often, mostly for breakfast but also dinner. Very cool interior. Log home on Kicking Horse River. Owner Petra is a delight as are all their staff. We enjoy the eggs benny and omelettes, as well as their varied dinner choices.

The restaurant was very pleasant! The building is a log cabin kinda place which is nice and fun to see. The food was excellent. The soup was great and the Caesar salad were both excellent. Caesar salad was quite different than anything I’ve had before...More

No need to book. Very warm and friendly, chalet style restaurant. We had a really delicious casserole of bison, vegetables and a potato rosti cake, then apple strudel all very tasty and welcome on a cold night!
