We had dinner here because it was close to our hotel and it was raining. This is a good family style restaurant and the food is average. The mains average around $20. We ate at Ptarmigan Inn on our second night and the food was much better there and for the same price.

Good food, great service, rustic ambiance. Overall satisfying but a little less awesome than we previously experienced.

The breakfast is what made Melissa's famous. You can never go wrong!
However, if you skip the BumbleBerry Pie, it will be a life long regret!
Enjoy! It's a do-not miss

Have been here a couple of times before on previous trips but on our last trip went there on our first night in Banff with our grandson and was most disappointed, we were shown to our table and given menus but before having a chance to look at them were asked if we wanted to order. The food was lovely and I would have enjoyed it more had I been aloud to finish it but whilst taking a sip of my drink my plate was whisked away by a waiter who seemed to be wanting to see us leave.Also the bill arrived even before my grandson had finished his dessert I did not dare have a dessert as I felt it was to going to take up too much of the waiters time bringing out more than one and don't order a childs dessert they don't do a small choc browine. wont be going back next year I like to have the chance of eating my food.

The restaurant is not in the main street so you have to find it. It was full, so we waited 15min in the bar upstairs. After that the waitress said to us that our table is ready. The meat was delicious. The waitresses were nice. The decoration in the restaurant was beautiful.
