We visited the restaurant for the Seafood Buffet night which is a Friday after a recommendation from a firned in Banff. The seafood was amazing and so much choice. Scallops, prawns, fish and as many crab legs as you can eat - and we ate lots! All of the food was very well presented and really tasty. There was even a chef cooking one of the prawn dishes fresh for you which was amazing.

Our server Reese was wonderful and really looked after us. The Restaurant Manager Alec was very friendly and attentive ensuring we had everything we needed.

We visit Banff every March and will definately be back for the Seafood buffet next year!

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!!

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.

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.

Great family restaurant and awesome service. Nightly themed buffets and Sunday brunch are the best in town!!
