“Eating in an Old Railroad Depot”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Not far from Lake Louise, the Old Railroad Depot has been turned into a restaurant. The food is good but not great, but it is a convenient stop that won't deplete your bank account.

“I shall return”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

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.

“Great atmosphere and service”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

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.

“Great Food, Atmosphere - service (?)”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

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.
