I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner. Our dinners were delicious, I had the Spicy Thai chicken noodles with veggies stir fry and my boyfriend had the Elk dinner. The drinks were very well done as well. Our waitress seemed very distracted (her section was nearly empty) and we felt we were not her priority. We waited 15-20min... More

You know you love a restaurant when you plan your trip to stop here enroute. We have eaten here many times, usually enjoying a cold brew and pizza heading home during our regular trips through the mountains in summertime. This time we came by in November before ski season and after hiking season and...they still serve awesome food and provide... More

Had one of the best duck salads I have ever had, (not that I have had many) It was one of the best meals we had on our trip to Canada in BC. Mains were on the specials Mexican menu which were also great. Nice atmosphere upstairs, few other customers but had a warm log cabin feel. Thanks, highly recommended.

The location of this restaurant is what go us to pull in, its very handy for travelers. We were seated quickly, and given a nice cold bottle of water ASAP. There is a good size menu, and the decisions are hard to chose from. But we both decided on a burger, I went for the Island and my spouse went... More

We stopped on our way to Banff. It was worth the stop. Both the service and food were excellent. We at inside so did not have a view.

We had lunch here and it was great. The deck was still open and it was sunny out so was nice. The meal arrived in good time and hot. We really enjoyed it. We would return if back in the area.

All reasonably priced food. Cocktails on offer were good but quite strong. Mexican special night offered great value on mains. Service was quick a friendly. Seemed a bit understaffed when the restaurant became busy but they handled it well. Would recommend an evening meal if you're staying in Golden. We went back for a second night!

While in Golden heading towards home we stopped overnight. We initially tried to eat at another restaurant but they were fully booked and they recommended we try the Island Restaurant instead. We were very pleased with our experience and glad we had opportunity to try it. The atmosphere is very warm and comfortable - a log building that has the... More
