There are a few fondue places in Banff but we found this one to be the best. Had the duck, elk, venison and beef cooked on the hot rocks. Sauces to match were excellent. The server was very helpful, knew his stuff very well, and made us very comfortable. Added fun was the ability to randomly call another table. Great... More

This place has been around forever. Passed by it for many years due to the prices. Well I must say I regret not going sooner. Food was amazing. Service was very good as well. It is a bit pricey for what you get but still is amazing. The only negative I would say is $27 for a half liter of... More

I love a meal that becomes an experience. This was the one thing I was looking forward to the most for our trip to Banff! My husband and I both opted for the complete fondue dinner. I got a salad to start (the Grizzly house dressing is phenomenal) and he upgraded to the French onion soup. I had a taste... More

Grizzly house is a must visit for anyone visiting Banff. Always above exceptional service, exotic food to tickle your fancy, or more home style cuts for the more sensitive pallet. I never miss the chance to dine here, and always want to share the experience with my friends.

My Husband and I stopped here for dinner when we were touring downtown Banff while on vacation. We went at 6pm and expected to have a wait for a table but we were seated right away even though the restaurant was full. It was a very neat experience and would recommend everyone to try this place when in Banff. Although... More

The food is amazing, the audience can't be beat, and the locations is top notch. We make it a yearly treat to have dinner at the Grizzly House, and its something we wait all year for. Book early, a reservation for this place can be tough to come by.

The food was OK atmosphere was it's downfall the table behind us must have been celebrating a bachelor party but was yelling and VERY loud to a point I couldn't hear my wife. We cooked by hot rock which wasn't that hot but the server noticed and gave us another hot rock saving the day

If you're after something a little different to eat in Banff but aren't concerned about getting quality food then this place is worth a visit. The cheese fondue is traditional in that they use gruyere/Emmental/wine blend and stale bread. It was accompanied with raw vegetables which were fresh. We'd had enough after a few mouthfuls. The real shame of the... More

The Grizzly House has been an iconic fondue house in the town of Banff since the early 70s. Starting out as a local disco for visiting swingers looking for a good time, the fun has continued to roll for all diners. The decor has furs, log beams and wood walls combined with modern art and memorabilia straight through to the... More

This restaurant is classic! The phones in the stalls ;) ;) I enjoyed the 16 oz ribeye. One of the better steaks in Banff. The fondue we had wasn't our favourite but it was still okay. Also enjoyed the striploin
