“Best Dining in Lake Louise!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is truly an exceptional dining experience. The service is impeccable, the food incredible and the atmosphere first class. We never miss a chance to dine at The Post. The menu selections are unique and the presentation is always perfect. Leave room for dessert because the selection is varied. We shared a dark cherry strudel with vanilla ice-cream which was incredible. This restaurant should not be missed when traveling through Lake Louise.

“Most amazing food”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We stayed at the Post Hotel and Spa and booked an evening meal at the restaurant. This is a first class dining experience, the food and the service were impeccable and the wine list is to die for. I would recommend this to anyone.

“The chef might in fact be a god...”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

My girlfriend and I stumbled upon this hidden gem of Lake Louise as we were about to go to another place, in the lobby of said horrible place I read several terrible reviews on it. We left and ended up at the Outpost. The decor is unreal, we ate supper on a couch, no kidding.
I had the veal sausage, I've never had veal sausage. It was seriously something special, the gravy, the potatoes, the veggies, everything was just perfect. Rarely do you get to enjoy a meal that is that amazing. The gf got the special, pork tenderloin on a mushroom sauce and pasta. She simply loved it.
I'd recommend this place in a heart beat. We'll be back the next time we're boarding in Louise.

“A classy pub”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I visited Lake Louise during the Christmas season and stayed with family, who work in the area. The last night we decided to go to the Outpost for a light meal and drinks. Although it was a week night, it was full when we got there, but he staff were great at wangling us a table.

I enjoyed the ambiance. three sets of large, comfy, leather couch sets, one around a coffee table and the fireplace, and the others in two corners. Then tables take up the rest of the place, and a bar. Lots fo historical photos on the walls -- all very cosy for a cold winter night. Staff were attentative but not overbearing. We ordered beer and wine and two huge nacho dished, and one member had a chicken dish -- not sure what. We were happy with it and had a great couple of hours.

Probably the prices were a teensy bit higher than some other places, but in my view the ambiance made it worthwhile. A pleasant crowd, great decor, and good service made it a wonderful last night of a wonderful holiday. Lots of locals were in attendance, which says something.

Another plus is the location. Centrally located, you can walk there from anywhere in the village. No need for taxis.

If you're in Lake Louise Village and want a pub night, consider the Outpost.
