The food was OK atmosphere was it's downfall the table behind us must have been celebrating a bachelor party but was yelling and VERY loud to a point I couldn't hear my wife. We cooked by hot rock which wasn't that hot but the server noticed and gave us another hot rock saving the day

If you're after something a little different to eat in Banff but aren't concerned about getting quality food then this place is worth a visit. The cheese fondue is traditional in that they use gruyere/Emmental/wine blend and stale bread. It was accompanied with raw vegetables which were fresh. We'd had enough after a few mouthfuls. The real shame of the... More

This restaurant is classic! The phones in the stalls ;) ;) I enjoyed the 16 oz ribeye. One of the better steaks in Banff. The fondue we had wasn't our favourite but it was still okay. Also enjoyed the striploin

I've never been disappointed with the Grizzly House. Their soups are full of flavor and the fondue is such a fun experience that everyone should try at least once. Or all the time! I drive all the way from Calgary just to eat here. So worth it.

Grizzly House has long been a favourite stop for my family when visiting Banff. The main attraction is the hot rock cooking - which makes dinner a fun and unique experience. This last visit, we had called ahead for reservations and were told they were booked up. Since we were downtown anyways, we stopped in to see if they could... More

Not everyday you get to cook your own supper at table! Great atmosphere, good variety of meat options. Got really smokey from all of the meat being prepared. Really busy, would recommend a reservation.

First time visiting after hearing so much about it from friends and family. The dinner lasted 2 1/2 hrs and was delicious. Never felt rushed to finish. Our waiter was helpful, and the portions were very filling. Would definitely recommend this place.

The price is about the same you would pay in Edmonton for a fondue dinner ($45-$65 - not incl. drinks). But here they have exoctic meat to chose from, alligator, kangaroo, snake, shark, ect. But the meat is cooked on a hot rock with makes a lot of smoke and spewing oil. If you have dry eyes or don't like... More

We have been here twice. This is a unique fondue restaurant in the area which offers hot oil or hot stone cooking. The cheese fondue course would be my favorite. We have only done the hot stone but be warned it spits a bunch of grease. So much in fact you can see and smell it in the air. You... More
