My wife and I didn't have a great lunch experience, I had to locate the server to place my order and it took a very long time.

Stayed at Emerald Lake Lodge and, quite frankly, you are a captive audience. There really isn't too much else around even if you leave the property, so make the best of it. We had breakfast in the Mount Burgess Dining Room twice during our stay, and had dinner in the Kicking Horse Lounge just across the lobby one night (same... More

We had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners in the Dining room and the food was top notch. No complaints and the selection and technique used to prepare the food was perfect.

This had great food with a variety of choices including for vegetarians. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, I especially liked the Orange and Olive cake I had for desert. The wine was all very good but I would say it is all quite expensive.

I’d give the lodge its self and the location a 15/10 if I could but breakfast was a completely different story. Through the restaurant... More

We ate dinner here twice and breakfast 3 times during our long weekend visit. Food was excellent on all occasions, service was friendly, attentive and well paced. Many tables have a good view of the lake.
