We picked up a few sandwiches to go on our trip - honestly the best lunch we have ever had. Will recommend to anyone traveling to Banff.

A local recommended Saltlick to us and we weren't disappointed. I ordered the steak and it was cooked perfectly (I like my meat rare) and the ribs were very nice. Front of house wasn't welcoming at all, and didn't crack a smile but our waitress was lovely.

We ate here twice on our recent stay in Banff. Both meals were superb, the Bison is awesome and would also recommend the Elk! Have to make special mention of Matthew, our server on our first visit; he really made the meal that extra bit special. Coming from Dubai we have been spoiled a little with service standards but Matthew... More

Had a birthday dinner there last week; just as good as ever. We've visited many time over the years and it has been consistently excellent every time. The 8oz Sirloin is good enough for most but the larger cuts are something special. Cocktails are a speciality too, downstairs is slightly more casual, not inexpensive but worth the $

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay and both times it was exquisite. This restaurant is very good value for money. The service and quality of food is lovely, this is really a must, we wish there was a saltlik in the UK.

We wish we would've gone here for dinner...we ate a late lunch somewhere else... We stopped in for desert and a couple after dinner drinks. We ordered delicious creme brulee. Kept admiring the stake dinners everyone was having around me...we're going be here a couple more days and definitely plan to revisit!

My husband & I had our 1st dinner of 2017 here and it was the PERFECT choice! The dining room is upstairs with a huge fireplace & plenty of seating. We were seated in a lovely booth which was cozy for the two of us. Our waiter was superb ~ very polite & professional with great suggestions. He told us... More

We had a great group meal at Saltlik which was well priced overall for Banff. The menu choices and service was decent and the range of drinks offered was also good. Good option to check out in Banff and would eat here again.

This was one of the pricier restaurants that we tried in Banff. The three of us ordered, cobb salad, hanger steak, and gnocchi. The first two were OK, average, but the gnocchi was overdone (gummy). Creme brulee was good. Carrot cake was just average. Were there in the evening and found it too dark to properly see our food, and... More

Hi ClariceAdams We are sorry you were not fully satisfied with your meal. The Hanger steak and cobb are crowd favorites normally. We do only have washrooms on the main floor as there was not enough space to put another set on the top level. We can offer you the elevator next time to make the trip easier and not... More

We had dinner here with family and friends. The food was excellent. I recommend the Hanger steak. Great price and tasted wonderful. Can't go wrong with the mushroom truffle Mac n cheese either. Ribs were very good too. Service was horrible. Waited 30 minutes to get our drinks and over an hour and a half to get the starters. All... More
