Everything was awesome except your lunch will take a solid hour, if only they would speed up the service times this place would possibly be the best in Yellowknife.

the specials are very good, the food is fresh and as local as possible (i ate panfried whitefish) but the service is a bit slow.

We are here twice while visiting yellowknife. Everything was fresh and home made. A small salad was enough for a meal. The home made peppery beef soup was amazing. The beef sandwich was delicious. Home made desserts to die for. Try a Wally's secret recipe ginger cookie with the delicious coffee.
Service always with a smile.
Find this place!

This restaurant had gluten-free bread which was nice. The food itself was alright for the price, and I would definitely recommend making a reservation!

I've eaten here before and I will being lunching here again before I leave.
This is a lunch service only place. A reservation is needed to ensure you get a table.
The atmosphere of the museum and the large space makes this a lovely spot. Ministers of government to tourists to the locals who work in the downtown enjoy this place. If you live here or anywhere in the North, expect to see someone you know. We did!
I had the bison burger. It was perfect and due to its size, I had to take half home for supper. My colleagues had the blackened whitefish and loved it. I'll be taking friends here!
