Family of four stopped in for dinner. Ordered Roast beef and it was very good with generous portions. My son had the chicken strips off the kids menu. Again generous portions. The wait staff were quick and very responsive. Very reasonably priced.

The hotel could be nice if the owner would keep it well, but it is abandoned. The structure remeber an old western saloon. The rooms are not so clean.

I've been going to the Frontier for 10 years. The owner, Matt, works incredibly hard to bring quality food to his patrons with huge portions. You never leave hungry! He runs two major buffets on Friday and Sundays (Mexican and Indian) which no one else can match in Revelstoke. He also does charity work for the community running 'Orphan Dinners'... More

I got the worst service I have ever received from a restaurant ever. The bathroom ran out of toilet paper so I was told to use the gas station's bathroom. We had to wait forever for my son to get his drink he ordered. Then when we asked for some ketchup they almost threw the bottle at us. The food... More

I've eaten here since I was little (about 30 years)everytime we drive thru revelstoke. They used to have amazing food and French onion soup. When we walked in another customer told us to seat ourselves. About 5 min later a waiter or homeless person came and threw menus at us followed by cutlery. He looked utterly pissed off that we...

this property needs a good clean for starters, and it needs a facelift, the period it's in is late 70-'s and it looks/feels it

My husband and I have eaten here a number of times but not for some time now. (About 4 years). We sat down to order breakfast, were almost the only ones in the restaurant, took one look at the waiter and left. He was very dirty, clothes etc. attitude and my husband took one look at the cook who looked... More

This used to be one of Revy's best now it's a terrible dump, where even the cockroaches won't eat. avoid this place at all costs,it is also the Greyhound stop and from personal experience there is some pretty sketchy people that are about when the bus is there.

The breakfast here was great. I had the pancakes with sausage and was worth the price. It was a very good size portion and the price was very reasonable. Everybody we went woth was happy with the food. There's a couple tvs for sports. Bathrooms were clean. Service was fast and friendly. Decor was very unique and welcoming. I would... More

My parents wanted to stop here for lunch because they've always liked the soup. I had little expectations of finding not just a passable veggie burger but a really great one. It doesn't look like much from the outside but give it a try. Prices are great, portions are HUGE and the veggie burger smothered in baked beans was soooo... More
