“Good Experience Along The Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Didn't have a reservation, so we had to sit out on the patio which would have been our choice anyways. Had a view of the lake and pretty blooming flower baskets. Several items on the menu have an Asian flair. I had a soup and then a shrimp, avocado, and mango salad that was very good. My husband had a seafood pasta which he said was good. Service did seem a little irregular as far as getting drinks out, food, etc.

“Here with a tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Had all meals with our tour group so that may have influenced the service and quality. Our salmon dinner was quite tasty. Breakfast buffet was average. Found the plates to have a bit of leftover stuck on food once.

“Dinner on the Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner on the patio overlooking the lake. Very nice ambiance. Our server was friendly and professional. Food and drinks were all spot on. Only complaint was our main courses we brought out almost immediately after our appetizers.

“Very nice restaurant in little Waterton.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

We were impressed that a restaurant of this quality existed in Waterton. The restaurant has a lot of healthy choices including miso glazed grilled salmon. We had the flatbread pizza for an appetizer as well as the fried calamari. I would not recommend the calamari as it was mostly crispy breading, but the flat bread was quite good. Our service was pleasant and attentive. We sat indoors, but the outdoor seating looked nice.

“less than impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

I ate dinner at this restaurant with seven other people..We were especially excited to eat there because of the amazing view of the lake. Despite the fact that the food was okay, and the ambiance was lovely, our experience less than positive. Our waiter (who was also the restaurant supervisor) refused to issue us separate bills and instead brought us a calculator and note pad along with our bill. Instead of helping us figure out what we owed separately, he told us to figure it out ourselves while he stood by watching for about 20 minutes as we tried to calculate what everyone owed including tax and the 15% gratuity which he had added to our bill. His obvious unwillingness to go the extra mile to help us was very frustrating. I will not be returning to this restaurant again, and would advise that large groups who wish to eat here think twice before doing so.

watertonalberta, General Manager at The Lakeside Chophouse at the Bayshore Inn, responded to this review, July 1, 2014
Hello-I am want to first sincerely apologize for your negative experience. Our servers are supposed to instruct all large groups that we do a maximum of four splits before our guests order so all guests are aware. It is written on our menus but i realize that can get over looked by our guests,. Our POS computer system is a little old and only allows four splits per check, i can assure you it is not out of server laziness. We are looking into a new system. None-the-less the server should have been more helpful. I again apologize and have sat down with all our servers to teach them how to deal with this so our guests are happy as we cater to more large group then anyone in the park. We pride ourselves on our service and i realize we failed you but we will learn from this and improve. I hope you will give us another chance to meet and exceed your expectations!
