“Great Food & Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

We went here for Valentine's dinner. The atmosphere of the restaurant was really inviting and we were seated in a booth in the corner by the fireplace which was nice considering it was Valentines Day. We ended up ordering too much food because the portion size is quite large. The flank steak cobb salad was amazing and the flank steak actually had more flavour then my husband's rib steak. Overall the food was really good and the price was very reasonable considering how much food we got. Service was also excellent.Would recommend.

“Could do better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Had a drink on way back from ski hill, and the bartender mentioned the Wednesday offer of steak @ $15 so we went back after a quick change.
Ordered said steak and was cooked to perfection! However it was smothered in a strong BBQ sauce that was not mentioned on the offers menu.
Spoilt the evening. We tried to explain about the lack of description used on the menu but it made difference.
Came across as arrogant from my point of view.

“Menu does not describe what is served”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Very arrogant treatment following receipt of steak which was smothered in a hot BBQ sauce. This was not described on menu choice and simply over powered flavour of what could have been an excellent piece of steak. Problem was reported mid- meal but no attempt to remedy matters. No doubt hot spicy sauce is endeavour to increase drink sales. Why not smother every meal in a sauce irrespective of menu description or what a customer wants. I have taken business colleagues to Saltlik for over 10 years for at least 4 weeks per annum. There was no attempt to deal with the issue today. I will never give any further custom to the organisation. I would now recommend The Keg when in Banff.

“very nice service, great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

We just stopped in for a quick bite on the way back to the ski hill.....wish we could have tried the restaurant, but ate in the lounge. Had a nice bottle of wine, shared a steak and the duck tacos. Tacos were different, and very tasty.

There was a new waitress, and although she did not necessarily know everything yet, was very helpful and accommodating.
