Beautiful designed restaurant setting. Like the open beams extreme high ceilings decorated very stylist. Upbeat feeling. The steaks are excellent served with your sides extra but you get to pick. Felt like the side were over priced but the scalloped peoples were delicious but not enough of them for the cost. The pasta meals are very generous and interesting.

Had a nice relaxing dinner here with friends. Waiter was fantastic, unfortunately I can't remember his name, but he did tell is he was 'the one and only'. He made our visit very enjoyable. Steaks were fabulous. Must try the scalloped potatoes, lobster mash and their signature drink the grape crush.

I loved the ambience as well as the staff. Very friendly and accommodating. I had the steak with chipotle sauce..drool! It was cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the ribs. Although the flavor was wonderful, they were cold. Not warm...flat out cold. He ate them anyway because we were starving. The dessert was perfect...pumpkin cheesecake, which we shared. Yum!

What a fantastic atmosphere! Servers are well versed in what to point out to the customers and know the menu very well. Great evening to sit back and relax! We had soup to start, then ribs, pork chops, scalloped potatoes and brussel sprouts. More than enough food for two people! We waddled out!

Best meal we could find in Banff. Great meats and good beer. We had the chorizo with dates and bacon, a sirloin and the hangar steak.

We were in Banff for a girls getaway! The lounge is where we had dinner - it was delish - everyone was happy with our meal and our server was attentive and even told us where we should head next!

We visited the Saltlik a few years ago and decided we needed a hearty lunch. It was a busy Saturday but we got a table by the door in the bar. Our waitress was friendly and we easily picked our meals. One mushroom burger and one Royale with cheese. Possibly the best burgers that we have eaten in a long... More

We happened upon the Saltlik on a Saturday evening while wandering around Banff and decided it smelled like a good place to stop for dinner. We were seated in the lounge as the restaurant was full already. The lounge was very loud and a little uncomfortable, but the food was fantastic and more than made up for what we were... More
