“With 2 confirmations they still lost our Christmas dinner reservation”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We confirmed by phone and email with Aileen in Nov. that our family of 7 were coming for dinner Christmas day. We show up on time and no record at all. Luckily the place was half empty. Still took 20 minutes to find us a table. No apology or any attempt at service recovery. Food wasn't bad. Staff were disorganized and unmotivated. Wine list a joke. See pic - the cellar was being used as a storage room.

“Good food & atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We were seated at one of the couch areas in the restaurant beside the fire. It was cozy and had a nice atmosphere. However, this was altered somewhat with people walking right past us in bathing suits & robes heading to the hot tub.
We all ordered lamb & steak and they were cooked perfectly and tasted great. The wine selection was also good. Eating dinner on the couches was a bit tricky though.
The one downside was our waitress. Although she was lovely, she was very poorly informed about the menu & wine availability. She also mixed up our orders and was not very efficient (took her almost 30 minutes between giving us the dessert menus & taking our order).

“A shame”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

We've been to Lizard Creek Lodge a number of times in the past and had really good lunches while skiing. The great menus, the sofas, the staff, the huge log fire roaring in the middle of the room and the sense of luxury made it difficult to leave, and easy to recommend.

Unfortunately the standards seem to have slipped this season. There is now a restaurant table for six that stands out like a sore thumb among the sofas, and the menu is a shadow of its former self.

The menu is a lot shorter than in previous years. I had the short-ribs, but they were so salty I could hardly taste anything else, and the soup didn't seem to be seasoned at all. My wife had the croquette poutine that just wasn't very good.

I'll try them once more, but I'm sorry to say that, apart from the great service, can't currently recommend the place.

“Breakfast with Santa”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Since RCR has taken over the once remarkable Santa brunch/breakfast is now disgusting. The price went up $10 and there was nothing good to eat, No sea food at all no nothing!!!! We would of been better off at Smittys. I promise we will never step foot in that building ever again.

“Best lounge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Large lounge with open fire comfortable couches, and great view of the slopes. Perfect place to take a rest, a snack and a beer. Right opposite Elk Chair.
