“Excellent Food and Service!”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

I am happy we stopped in to try out lunch. The food was great and alot of local products were featured like baked trout, bison shepherd's pie, fresh bannock, and many more yummy items. The price was great at $12.95 for lunch how can you go wrong. Great food and awesome service. I would definately recommend this as a must try for anyone in Yellowknife!

“Not what I expected.”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 via mobile

I kept hearing the radio commercials for the smoke house cafe and today I decided to give it a try. Myself and my partner went there for dinner and it was all around great. There is no menu, but rather just a buffet but there were plenty of options to please anyone. Several salads, chicken, bison burgers, roast, pasta, potatoes, fries etc. It was very clean and it is definitely on par in terms of pricing compared to other places in yellowknife. In fact it was 16.00 for dinner per person and for the selection of food available that beats many of the restaurants in town. Id definitely refer others to this restaurant. Check it out.

“What a surprise! Bouwawhee Smoke House is a welcome YK addition.”
Reviewed 3 December 2012

We ate here last week on a whim. I was surprised when I walked in by the size of the establishment and the fact that it was a buffet. My understanding is that this is a chef training centre whereby cooks-to-be whip up meals that will typically be served at the diamond mind sites.

It's self serve style; with juice, tea/coffee and a daily selection of shaved meats, pastas, salads. The menu rotates daily: new buffet per day of the week.

I had a delicious smoked thinly sliced smoked beef with a mexican flavoured citrus chicken salad and a few other things. Dessert was a hazelnut truffle cake of some type which was excellent.

It's a very unpretentious restaurant. The price shocked me as well. All you can eat including dessert and drinks (except pop) for around 16$. This is unheard of pricing for the north and if you're looking for decent quick food you shouldn't pass this place by.

PS. They're not open Sat/Sundays.
