The service is great. The food is average. The portions are very small for the price. The Artic Char was good but the piece I received could have fit on three saltine crackers.

Reasonably priced and good quality. The wait time is quite long (average 30 mins) but for a restaurant in the hotel where you don't have to wear thick coats out, it is quite awesome and recommended if you stay in the Explorer.

We went to the restaurant twice as we stayed in the Explorer. It will be even better if there is more choice in the menu and the waiters can be more enthusastic. If you don't have kids go to the Lounge and there will be more choices.

For me, this has the best food in Yellowknife.Great bison TV dinners, great Arctic char fish and chips, and the best cheesecake in Canada (but it could do without the peanut butter topping, which fortunately can be easily removed). Very nice ambience, excellent staff.

We went there for the wild game selection. My aunt had the wild boar which we both decided was within the top 3 best wild game we've ever had. I had a thick elk steak, which was also very good. The vegetables were equally wonderful, not just "filler" to look pretty on the plate as one often finds. The service... More

The white fish plate was great - cooked right, large portion, and great flavors. However, the Arctic Char was dry and small portion, the Elk plate was cooked... More

This is a wonderful place to enjoy excellent food that is presented tastefully. Service is the best. The surroundings, atmosphere, is relaxed, intimate, and warm. Beautiful northern landscape is viewed from the wall of windows and a warm copper fire pit in the centre of the room adds coziness on a cold winter day.

This restaurant is inside the Explorer Hotel. It is a pretty dining room with a large, circular copper fireplace and plenty of windows. Service was slow although we had been warned to expect this by the wait staff. Food was average. Prices were high for dinner but are probably more reasonable for breakfast or lunch.

Whenever I stay at this hotel - I always go downstairs for a quick bite to eat and a couple of beers. Relaxing. Wish they had more selection from the draft beer.

Typical hot breakfast buffet, but the food was good quality and well presented. Apparently the Sunday Buffet is even better. $18.00 for the Buffet.
