Excellent food and excellent service. Very nice dining room with views of the lake. We did not have a reservation but they were able to accommodate us.

We ate at the restaurant Thanksgiving Sunday as it was one of the only places still open this late in the season. In fact it was closing for the season after breakfast the next morning. They had a lovely Thanksgiving buffet, everything you could want including delicious desserts. We had made a reservation as was recommended and it was busy... More

I have eaten here several times and have been happy with the food and price - until this time. I found the Parmesan Chicken entrée (26) to be skimpy. The Wild Saskatoon Berry Pie (9) was good but a bit skimpy too. I'd suggest going for the chicken sandwich instead of the entrée, which is simply not worth the price.... More

We had three meals at the Lakeside Chophouse. The ambiance is very nice with a pretty view of the lake. Because the weather wasn't great, we felt warm and cozy inside. The service was good, the food good and, since some of the town was shutting down for the season, we felt that it was one of the better places... More

The views of the lake from the window were beautiful, and the service was very good. The mains were fine, but the desserts really hit the spot. I had cheesecake and my wife had chocolate cake with ice cream.

Had the bison reuben sandwich which was very tasty and great to try something a little different. Was definitely a heavy sandwich though and didn't manage all the chips (fries). Service was fine and we were happy with our decision to have lunch there.

Nice that at the end of the season you can get the tables with a view of the mountains for breakfast and dinner! The food was good, and the service fine... but looking out at the lake and the mountains made it for me :)

Actually had dinner here two nights in a row. the service was good, the menu choices were more than expected for a small town. the green salad was huge and very nicely presented. wine selection was ok, since some were not available.

Looked around for a place to eat after checking in to hotel. Not many places open this time in the year. We had a bit of a wait because we didn't make a reservation. The food here is good. The staff is very friendly. Prices are average. Place is clean. We would definitely eat here again. They have a beautiful... More

The Chophouse is the perfect counterpoint to a day in Waterton's rugged wilderness. Lakeside Chophouse is the best seat in the house for a view of gorgeous Waterton Lake and its surrounding Rocky Mountain peaks. Local cuisine is the highlight here - a delectable selection of Alberta beef and signature favorites. There is a buffet breakfast every morning, and a lakefront patio where you can soak up the sun and the extraordinary atmosphere.Located in the Bayshore Inn on Main St.The Fireside Lounge & Bar has LIVE music every night!
