I tried last time I was in LL to have a dinner, but the restaurant was closed (9 p.m.). I returned past week end and had a lunch. The restaurant is very nice, all wood and with a fireplace. It would be very much appropriate for a dinner, while outside is snowing...I will have to wait for this lol.
Anyway, I had the best burger ever, made with elk and a bred that I would assume is home made, excellent anyway. I salad as a side.
I had a couple of beer and a dessert, a strawberry pie with ice cream on top. Delicious.
The service accurate and smooth, as I like it.
The cost is really below average, at least for lunch.
Definitely a place to try. Don't miss it.

Overpriced, low value, as is the standard in Banff National Park. Bison burger however was well prepared and presented. Kids pasta tasted like it came from a can. Cocktails were excellent! Lovely room, terrific location, excellent wait staff. Of the three or four restaurants we tried, this one was easily the best.

What a wonderful restaurant right next to the train tracks in what was a train station at one time - it was really cool as 3-4 trains did pass while we were having dinner. By no means a distraction. Food was very good and everyone (7 of us) liked what they ordered and it was properly cooked. Steak, Fish, Burgers all great. Dessert of "warm" pie was cold but good. We went on the May long weekend expecting to have to wait for a table - we were seated promptly. The restaurant was about half full - however the staffed seemed overwhelmed by the "crowd". Our server, appeared to be experienced but was "lost", never able to catch up with our needs for drinks, re-fills, ketchup, place settings.... Overall, if food and atmosphere are at the top of your list I would recommending going - hopefully the staff has picked up their service levels by the time you arrive.

We ate here on the second night in Lake Louise. It is a beautiful building. We had the bison burger, two salads and the vegetarian lasagna. The salads and lasagna were decent and the bison burger was good.

There was an issue with the bison burger as I ordered it without cheese and when it came it had cheese residue on it. Someone in the kitchen had realized that there wasn't supposed to be cheese and had taken it off after already on. We sent it back and a new one came out very quickly. Too quickly in fact as it wasn't properly cooked. The third time was the charm however. The server was very apologetic even though it wasn't his fault.

Notwithstanding the burger issue, we really liked this place. It is child friendly and a good option when in lake louise.
