We were so hungry after getting into Valemount and checking in to the hotel that we didn’t take pictures, we just devoured. Partner’s exact words after eating the steak special was that he’s paid significantly more for filet mignon that was not as tender as the steak special at the Caribou Grill. The Cajun maple wings were meat candy, highly recommend. Will definitely be hitting this place up again on future trips.

We were here about 5 years ago (Valemount is a bit off our beaten path) and enjoyed then so why not revisit? We were not disappointed. Both my wife and I had pork medallions, she with a portabello mushroom sauce, me with a cognac peppercorn sauce. Both were excellent. My veggies came with a cheese sauce which I did not want, so they were replaced with no trouble. Service was friendly , safe and efficient. No complaints there. As usual, there was no room for dessert. Good cleaning precautions were taken as tables turned over. My only, very slight quibble, is that their bar has no draught beer. Altogether an excellent choice, and you will not be disappointed.

We are happy to hear you came for a revisit and that you enjoyed the food and service again. Sorry about the no draught beer, we had it for a brief time in the early years but I came to realize not too far into it that I just couldn't pour a decent glass of beer so I thought it was best to leave it to the folks in town that do a really good job of it lol. Thank you for leaving a review!

We dined here two years ago and since we were in town again, decided to try it again, especially in 'Covid times!' We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was amazing. My husband had the beef and I had the chicken and we shared the smoked salmon appetizer. It is great to find a restaurant like this in such a small town. Lucky locals!!! The room orientation was changed for Covid 19 Protocols. It was very heartening to see how much attention was given to detail in this regard. We felt incredibly comfortable and safe. See you next time!

Meal was okay I had steak and a stuffed potato it came with veggies mushrooms and onions the mushrooms were a bit crispy the onions looked okay but I don't really eat those. Steak was a bit overdone I asked for rare and I would say it came medium/rare. The meal was served with bread which was awesome but the butter was curdled due to the heatwave.

I went to the caribou grill with my boyfriend simply because it really was the only place in town that actually listed vegan options and I figured I’d give it a try. We did takeout and the bartender Andrew was lovely, informed, and did an amazing job checking with the kitchen about my allergies. He was great! I ordered a side of the tomato herb soup and the tofu steak and my boyfriend ordered the penne lentil pasta. The soup was amazing, I love a good tomato soup and it definitely did not disappoint. My boyfriend said his penne was great too! The only issue I have is with the tofu steak, which is sad considering the owner is apparently vegan. I got the tofu steak with peanut sauce, and all I can say was that the dish was overwhelmingly underwhelming. There was absolutely not an ounce of seasoning on anything. No salt, no pepper, no flavour. The tofu wasn’t even seasoned. That is the BIGGEST mistake when making tofu (and I’ve made a lot of it). The vegetables weren’t seasoned either and everything was just kind of bland, even the peanut sauce. I think the tofu could have been cooked a bit longer too as it was more on the “gooey” side. I didn’t find the dish cohesive either, like I would pair the tofu “steak” with potatoes or a medley of garlic vegetables, not just unseasoned tofu, with unseasoned vegetables, with brown rice with a bland sauce. Again being vegan for five years (and gluten free for one and a half) I know how to handle ingredients like tofu and veggies and it just sucks going to a place where a vegan dish is an afterthought instead of something a restaurant actually tries to make it good. Overall had a good experience but next time for the love of god please add some seasoning.

I am very disappointed in my most recent trip to the Caribou, my family has always had great service and loved coming back time and time again. As always the service was okay but the food really did disappoint. When our drinks arrived there was ants floating in the kids drinks, when our dinner arrived there was hair in the parmesan cheese for our pasta. When the streak arrived it was overcooked when we asked our waitress if it could be replaced with the properly cooked steak they started poking the steak saying it was fine. With COVID-19 and the health measures that are supposed to be put in place it really did worry the family if the precautions were really taking place in the kitchen. My family has always loved the Caribou and we are genuinely sad that we will not be dinning again.

We had dinner here last week. Tables are nicely spaced apart and everything was spotless clean. Our waitress was great, she told us that she has worked there for 20 plus years, what a vote of confidence. The Pork Tenderloins were delicious paired with a great Chilean Cabernet Sav. We truly enjoyed our meal and the setting plus being waited on by someone who likes her job, it shows.

What a find in a small town, no wonder it was ranked number 1 restaurant. We arrived early without a booking and were quickly shown to a table. The food was very well prepared and presented, good choices for all tastes and prepared without a great deal of wait time. The restaurant was full of quirky things like grizzly bear paw imprints and despite being busy the wait staff were attentive without being overbearing. Great meal, would happily go back and would say that unless you are looking for a fast food alternative this is the only place in town to eat.

The building is beautiful. The menu looks good however the food is pretty average. Caesar salad tasted like the dressing came from a store rather than being made from scratch. I wouldn't order it again. The seafood chowder was not particularly good with a bit of a weird taste to it. The calamari and the French onion soup we're very good. Teriyaki Arctic char I would pass on as all you can taste is teriyaki sauce. I probably would skip this restaurant next time we came here and try something else. The service and the surroundings were great.

Visited my favorite Valemount restaurant on June 20, 2022. As always the food was delicious and my server, Lorelei was outstanding. Lorelei provided incredible service to 8 tables simultaneously with 20 to 25 guests constantly in attendance, taking all orders and delivering all food on time personally. Outstanding. Really enjoyed the atmosphere, not catering to the bar/pub crowd, more family and friends oriented. Choice of small or large portions also a welcome innovation.

While on roadtrip Oct 2021 at BC and Alberta we stayed overnight at Valemount when we asked for a nice place to eat they recommended the Caribou Grill. A very nice building and interior. We did not have any reservation this was no problem and the staff showed us a nice table. (not to small) When we received food and wine list we asked the waiter for advice pity Canad does not export his wines to Europe cannot blame them. Anyway the wine and food where excellent we hope to come back on our next roadtrip at Canada

Valemount is a tiny place and when people suggested we eat at the Caribou Grill, we assumed it would be small town fare or possibly pub food. We were so pleasantly surprised at the menu--steak and prime rib and chicken, and it was all amazingly done! The stuffed potatoes were an awesome addition to all of our meals. Wait staff were friendly and authentic. We had a short wait, and enjoyed hanging out at the bar, watching the bartender make interesting drinks and people watching. Can highly recommend this place, it is not to be underestimated!

What an experience, a Lovely Log Cabin Style Building with great seating area, friendly staff and wonderful food. Cater for Gluten free options and knowledgeable staff. We had Pork Tenderloin Medallions and Chicken and big portions in a fine Dining setting, but very reasonably priced. Recommended.

Our dining experience was great. It started with our server, Daphne, who did an excellent job of helping us with the menu choices and then checking on us occasionally once our meals arrived. The food was top notch, and the prices were reasonable,

After one very disappointing dinner in Clearwater the night before we were a bit nervous to try another local restaurant. But here in Valemount, Caribou Grill has got it right. We had the pork medallions and Prime Rib. Every part of the meal was fantastic. The whipped potatoes were flavorful, the broccoli was perfectly cooked, and the meat was just so tasty and good quality. The prime rib beats the Keg by a mile!! Our server was attentive and her timing of everything was perfect. We saw others with various things like Caesar Salad, French Onion Soup and they all were saying how good it was. Great dinner and if we are ever back in Valemount we will be coming here again, and telling everyone else about it.
