Ate at a bunch of different places in Canmore, Banff and kanananskis on our vacation but The Island Restaurant was by far the best. Great prices, atmosphere and food. Everything seemed to be home made.

I've been here a few times now and it's always been just ok. But this time, I was truly disappointed. The martinis we ordered were like water and all three dishes were tasteless. They came out far too quickly - like they'd just been reheated...More
