  • Overview

  • Hours

Banff’s legendary Grizzly House restaurant has been creating unique and memorable dining experiences since 1968. The Swiss-Canadian themed menu offers a wide selection of fondues and sizzling hot rocks in traditional and exotic varieties including Alberta beef, buffalo, caribou, elk and seafood. The menu also offers alternative entrées, specialty appetizers and chocolate fondue for dessert. House-made burgers and regionally themed items are available for lunch. The bar offers international and Canadian Wines as well as cocktails.


The Grizzly House offers an exotic and eclectic setting that is an escape from every day life. The rustic decor and wood panelled walls house generations of decoration from the traditional mountain items like a wood-carved bear and bison and elk mounts, to a mannequin riding a motorcycle. Restaurant guests will find working telephones at every table – a legacy from the restaurant’s early days as a disco nightclub. Enjoy views of Banff Avenue and the surrounding mountains from the heated sidewalk patio.
