“Super Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Went to the Seafood buffet with some friends visiting from York, UK. We all had the best experience. Our server Reese was a delight. The food was excellent with never ending crab legs. I am from Nova Scotia so really appricate good seafood considering Alberta is land locked. The sauteed shrimp was amazing. Great moubtain views as we watched the snow fall. Loved it and would recommend to everyone. They do it right!!

“Cold Buffet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Arrived late on Saturday so tried the breakfast buffet in the Chinook situated in the Banff Park Lodge. Very disorganised layout for the food and unfortunately the "hot" buffet was at best tepid. Not good value.

“Great evening buffet deal (2 for 1) on until Easter'13”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Price was great- $22 - and the spread and quality of the Friday seafood buffet was exceptional. Also did the Sunday brunch. Price was a little more but well worth it. Chinese buffet on Monday and Southwestern on Thursday.

Superb selection with every taste imaginable. Need to have a reservation in order to eat. I would highly recommend this to everyone as the town of Banff attends this brunch
