We stopped here for a late lunch. While the server was very friendly and talkative, he actually talked a little bit too much. A small glass of a soft drink was $3.50 or $3.99 which was a bit much. The food was okay. The chicken in my sandwich was very dry, my husband liked the fish and chips, and the... More

We were staying at the Emerald Lake Lodge so found ourselves in their restaurant on the first night. What a mistake The food was second rate which would have been ok if the service was excellent - but it was abysmal. We were seated in the lounge and we may have well been seated on Mars ... It took over... More

My wife and I didn't have a great lunch experience, I had to locate the server to place my order and it took a very long time. We both ordered the bison burger and it was average at best, burger was dry, for $48 with tip (We both had water) we expect decent service and a mouthwatering burger. You are... More

Stayed at Emerald Lake Lodge and, quite frankly, you are a captive audience. There really isn't too much else around even if you leave the property, so make the best of it. We had breakfast in the Mount Burgess Dining Room twice during our stay, and had dinner in the Kicking Horse Lounge just across the lobby one night (same... More

We had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners in the Dining room and the food was top notch. No complaints and the selection and technique used to prepare the food was perfect.

This had great food with a variety of choices including for vegetarians. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, I especially liked the Orange and Olive cake I had for desert. The wine was all very good but I would say it is all quite expensive.

We booked a room at the emerald lodge as a last minute place to stay, it was dark when we arrived so we had no idea the amazing surprise we were in for in the morning. I’d give the lodge its self and the location a 15/10 if I could but breakfast was a completely different story. Through the restaurant... More

We ate dinner here twice and breakfast 3 times during our long weekend visit. Food was excellent on all occasions, service was friendly, attentive and well paced. Many tables have a good view of the lake.
