The food here is very, very good. The portions are well sized and dishes have such great flavor! The atmosphere and view make it even better. Service was great too! Definitely recommend.

“Best breakfast in Jasper is just a few minutes outside Jasper”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Through our weekend trip, we were a tad disappointed in what Jasper had to offer in terms of the dining scene, so for our last meal, breakfast on the holiday Monday, we decided to go to Pines, since, if the food was just as bland and average as most of the other places, at least we would have a nice view of the lake. It was pretty early so we scored the best table right at the main window when we go there. I think there were only 2 other tables at occupied at the time. The sun was just poking through the clouds so we got a pretty good view of the lake and mountains. We had the croissantwich and the 2 egg breakfast plate, and both dishes were quite good. The potatoes were well seasoned and just the right level of doneness. The short drive to the 2 lakes is well worth it on its own, so I recommend checking this restaurant out for breakfast, lunch, or dinner as well.

“Great food and service!!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We couldn't decide where to eat so went up to Pyramid Lake for a drive. Dropped in at The Pines Restaurant and didn't have a reservation. Had no problem getting in. Had the beef tenderloin and it was fantastic. The meat was so tender you could cut it with a fork. The best meal I had while in Jasper.

“Great food and view”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We decided to travel up the Pyramid Lake road to this great dining room for the view and sunset but stayed for the great food. This was the first time e have had shrimp wrapped in wild boar bacon and we are now huge fans. And the elk strips on skewers were excellent.

For the main meal, we tried the stuffed chicken which was extremely tasty. And will definitely have this dish in the future.

The deserts were excellent, tried the chocolate brownie and creme boule.

The staff were fantastic and were always there to ensure that we had a great dining experience. And they had they own opinions on the various dishes served and their opinions were well valued by us.
