If you are visiting Invermere, Radium Springs or Panorama or even Banff, you should come out to Strand's. We were having trouble finding a good restaurant in town and came across this one. From the time we called to make reservations to the time we stepped out after dinner, the entire experience was delightful. The restaurant itself is beautiful because... More

Thank you to our server, Mike, and the great chefs at Strand's for making our anniversary dinner a special event!! It is rare these days to be able to consistently count on helpful yet subtle service, beautifully prepared food and an amazingly extensive wine cellar! Our escargot stuffed mushrooms, Filet Madeira and rack of lamb were all prepared to perfection.... More

Ski club group dinner for 45 people. Friendly staff. We had a selection of 2 appetizers and 3 main courses. The buffalo ribeye was cooked medium rare as ordered and quite tasty.

I was here with my family for a birthday. Strand's seems to be very hit & miss with it's service and food, but I will say that there was enough 'hit' to go back to give it another chance. The Good: The main course meal. There were six of us eating, and everything was fabulous. We ate every last drop... More

Everything we order at Strands is always delicious! The service & ambience is some of the best in the valley. Love the live music. Try the house salad, Wiener schnitzel, tuna sashimi, and chocolate mouse. Everything is home made!

This restaurant is in a lovely old house. There's a lot of character here.. we received a very high level of Professional Service from our waiter and the food was absolutely wonderful. We ordered from a special three-course meal menu. We both opted for the goulash soup to start. We followed that with an absolutely mouth-watering sauerbraten served with red... More
