This restaurant is an institution in Banff. The interior looks as if it was carved from the inside of a tree, with highly varnished wooden walls hanging with a whole herd of buffalo heads. The bizarre menu specializes in expensive fondue dinners featuring morsels of beef, ostrich, buffalo, rattlesnake, alligator, venison and assorted other meats. The wine list features over 100 selections including a special list of Canadian wines. Dinner at the Grizzly House is an event to remember.
I have dined at the Grozzly House many times. However, this past weekend we were in Banff and stopped in to make a reservation for that same evening, as we have done many times in the past. We asked the hostess if we would be able to make a reservation for that evening, and she snapped 'not til 10:00. It's the long weekend guys' First of all, it isn't a long weekend for some people. Second of all, I absolutely do not appreciate being talked down to. She has no idea how much money I, my friends and family and my husband's company spend there every year. As a Calgarian, I feel this horrible service reflects badly on us as well. If I were from soemwhere farther away and this was my one and only time there, I wouldn't know of the service I normally receive there and would leave with a terrible impression.
A Banff institution I remember this place from the seventies and it was fun then Buffallo tartar toRattlesnake it was all good try the Steamboat
Or you can buy a buffallo head,mounted for 4000.00 We did.
The food was delicious. We couldn't get over how tender the beef was. The sauces were yummy. We were a table of 8 women ages 18 to 72. We all enjoyed it a lot. You can use the table phones to call other tables, so we had a lot of fun with that. Even tho it was expensive, we thought it was worth it for the food and the entertainment value. After all it is Banff, everything is expensive. We would do it again.
This place was excellent in taste, and in service. The place looks like a tree on the inside and out. But when we had like 8 chunks of beef fondue, and 2 chunks of alligator the bill was expensve. We had three people dining and the bill was over 100 and we didn't even have wine. So if you want a small portion with expensive taste go here.
Our favorite restaurant in Banff! Great location! We really enjoyed the experience of using the hot stones. Everything was fresh and tasted great. Much Much better than The Melting Pot or La Fondue. The staff was friendly and even remembered our preferences. We plan to visit Banff and Grizzly House again real soon.
The Place is very cozy, and welcoming. Every time I go to Banff I always make sure I take the time to go and eat at the Grizzly House. The price and be alittle expensve with larger groups but it is worth it.
