“Great food & good portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

The food at the Saltlik was really good. The way they serve it a little interesting. You order your main and then your order your side which is shared by the entire table. This worked out really well for our family but I am not sure if it would be ideal if it were just two people.

Overall though I would definitely go back.

“Best steak in Banff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

This was recommended by the front desk at our hotel, the food is fantastic with good service and an excellent selection of wines and beers. Be prepared to part with your hard earned cash as its a bit pricey. This was by far the most expensive restaurant in Banff we ate at. Well work a visit as a holiday treat.

“Arrogant waiter”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Food was very good but the waiter was a little too quick at removing the dishes before finishing the meal. Arrogant male waiter! Everything else was very nice,

“Great steak, good atmosphere in the sports bar.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Saltlik has 2 parts to it - a proper restaurant upstairs and a more casual downstairs that feels more like a sports bar. Being travel-weary and not particularly well dressed we opted for the downstairs - it turned out to be a good choice!

There was an offer on at the time that took $10CAD off the price of a sirloin. When it came, the steak was superb and cooked to perfection, along with with a mountain of fries - it would have been worth the asking price but for what we paid it was a steal.

Good selection of beers, friendly service and great food - couldn't ask for anything else.

“Good food; inattentive service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We ate at the Saltlik for lunch, intentionally eating late to avoid the lunch rush. Our server was very friendly when he took our order, but unfortunately that's about the only positive thing I can say about the service. We ordered more drinks when our food was served, but he must have forgotten. We could see him attending to other tables or checking the computer - but he wasn't overly busy. We tried to flag him down to get his attention, but to no avail. The food was delicious, but would have been better if we'd had something to wash it down with. We finally walked up to the bar to pay, because he didn't come over.
