While in Banff I decided to let my curiosity get the better of me. Entering the Grizzly House is like entering an old school ski chalet. It's dark and rustic and novel. I wanted to be creative with my selection and opted for the exotic fondue. I chose the old fashion oil and was glad I did. I had ostrich,... More

This restaurant we were told was a 'must visit'. Looking at the menu, we weren't sure we'd love the food but booked anyway since we didn't have any alternatives and LOVED it. Easily our favourite meal of a two week trip. The whole family ate meat until we could eat meat no more! A 'definite' for all meat eaters

The Grizzly House is a good restaurant in banff and the concept is quite good. The fondue is the most selected menu and it comes in a wide variety. We were 2 adults and a toddler so we picked 2 different fondues; seafood and meat with a side of chicken for the little one. The food was delicious! And since... More

We stopped there to have a taste of something different and different it was. Fondue on a hot rock for starters where we grilled Bison, wild boar, deer, kangaroo and the usual beef and chicken. Meat portions were small but the choice was great. And the food was good. They have phones at each table so you can call any... More

When we visited, it was late afternoon and we stopped in for lunch/dinner. The restaurant was nearly empty but we were stuck in this tight corner table on a platform that made me feel claustrophobic because I couldn't get in and out of the table (I'm a very thin/small person). All three of us ordered the 4-course meal as there... More

The restaurant gets really busy so best to book. We were told it was a swingers place in the past so all tables have phones to provide table to table contact! The waitress was friendly but fierce (!) Wine ok and unusual choice of meats- alligator, ostrich ( if I remember correctly) you can choose fondue options or I think... More

A friend recommended this place and it's well worth a visit. It's very dark inside but has seating outside and window seats if you prefer. We've never eaten fondue and it was a great experience! If you fancy trying something different, try here. The food was lovely. We had cheese fondue to start then we went for the hot stone... More

The dim lights felt kind of Romantic. We had the bread and cheese and chicken and seafood fondue. Very delicious. Nice server. Just took a while to get the check.

This restaurant is one of the best restaurants we have ever visited. The ambience is really welcoming and wonderful. We chose the four course option, starting with soup, then with cheese fondue. Afterwards we had the entrees, consisting of four types of meat - alberta beef, buffalo, elk and venison. They were delicious. You cook them yourself on a hot... More
