One of the nicer restaurants on the main Banff Ave strip. Downstairs is a bar with some seating but the main dining room is upstairs. Decor is cozy with abundant wood and stone. Pretty typical bar and grill menu with some local specialties like elk meatballs and bison tenderloin. The cowboy style 18oz ribeye was really nice. Lots of flavor in the steak albeit presented a bit messily on top of a bed of mixed veggies. Decent wine list with half-bottles and wines by the glass available. Service was excellent throughout the meal.

Went for lunch with a friend. Although the lounge is very confortable, everything else was just OK & to top it off our server just assumed not to bring any change back... will probably not go back especially when you have the Salt Lick just around the corner!!

Great food and nice atmosphere. I ate the baseball steak and it was delicious. Too big for me though! Fiancee had Salmon. She wants to go back!

We decided to eat and drink everything Canadian at this restaurant because it oozed the smell of maple syrup from the sidewalk. We started off with a specialty martini made with maple liquor and syrup and had the goat cheese and truffles, which was very good. For our main meals, we had the bison tenderloin wrapped in bacon and bison stroganoff. The portions are really rich and big, and I ended up having lots of leftovers the next day.

The food isn't good for the price you pay, we expected a better overall experience and wouldn't choose to eat there again as the food was a little greasy (we both had a pasta which was covered in to much sauce)
