A full service restaurant with a very good variety of choices. My husband had steak; I had chicken and both meals were excellent. By the glass wine service with good choices. Service was very attentive. No reservations accepted, but definitely worth the short wait to...get a table. Overall, a lovely restaurant and good quality meal after a day of driving.More

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.More

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.More

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.More

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.More

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!More

We had 2 full days- 2,000km of rushing around eating burgers and pizza. For our final meal before the long haul home we wanted something special. While admiring Mt Robson we used TripAdvisor to find this wonderful spot. We arrived just as they opened for...the day. You have to drive through town to find it. It was nice being off the highway for a change. Our server was great and the food was delicious. We chose a table near the window which gave us a beautiful view of some of the surrounding mountains. It gave me the energy to drive the remaining 7 hours homeMore
