Description: Thank you for choosing to explore the Caribou Grill Restaurant in Valemount, British Columbia! We offer: Prime Rib AAA Sterling Silver Beef Wild Salmon Venison Seafood Pasta Kids Menu Vegetarian Options All meals include a basket of our freshly baked Cheese Bread. About Our Restaurant Your hosts Patricia and Rudi Thoni began construction of their authentic log building in the summer of 1998 and opened for business in May 1999. The interior reflects the back woods log cabin theme with beautiful wildlife mounts, native artifacts, leather art and comfortable high back chairs. The incredible beauty that surrounds Valemount is what brought Rudi and Patricia to the area and is what keeps them here. If you are looking for a short hike or to stay in one of our local backcountry cabins, please inquire with Patricia for some tips on the great hiking opportunities or to book a cabin.

“A great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

A very attractive dining room, with exceptionally comfortable chairs. Quick, friendly service. Excellent food (good choice, very tasty, and reasonably priced). The line of cars in the car park shows that this place has a good reputation, and rightly so. Most people seem to eat quite early (around 6:00 pm), but you won't have to wait long for a table even if you arrive at the peak time.

“Great night”

Loved the Caribou Grill. Had the 'special' that night and nothing disappointed. Staff were attentive without being annoying. Food was very well cooked and delicious. Would come back and would recommend.

“Great food, great service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed just one night in Valemount and, although our hotel was disappointing, our dining experiences were not! Upon recommendation we went to the Caraboo Grill for dinner on a Sunday evening and our service was friendly and prompt and our meals were very good! Our waitress gave suggestions and was very accommodating. We didn't go anywhere else in town for a sit down meal, but based on word of mouth and our own experience, we're pretty sure this is one of the best places to dine in Valemount! The only minor thing that perhaps some might change is the decor...it's rather unassuming with an air of "grandma made me this macrome picture back in grade school...." to it....but I actually found that a bit charming.... If you're spending a night in Valemount, make your way over to the train tracks and dine here!

“Very good meal in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

This was our second time at the Caribou Grill. It was just as good as we remembered. The elk I had was very good.It was accompanied with seasonal vegetables and mashed potatoes, My wife had the Mahi Mahi. She said it was excellent. With the sample taste I tried, I must agree, The desserts looked good. We were both too pleasantly full to have any.Our waitress was very good. Very friendly and helpful with the menu. The service was great though out the meal.Receiving our bill was a little slow(about 30 minutes).Oh well,who cares when you on holidays. All in all, a very pleasant evening out in Valemount.
