Deer Lodge is home to one of the most noted dining rooms in the Canadian Rockies. We invite you to sample our Rocky Mountain Cuisine – a style influenced by hearty meals made by European mountain guides artfully presented and professionally served. Rocky Mountain Cuisine is best described as an assemblage of Canadian ingredients such as bison and elk raised on CRM Ranch without hormones or antibiotics, sustainable seafood, prairie-grown grains and locally sourced vegetables. We have an extensive wine list featuring award-winning Canadian wines from central B.C. as well as Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula – including a generous selection of hard to find Vintners’ reserve wines. Deer Lodge proudly received Gold at the Vancouver International Wine Awards.

    This was by far the WORST experience we have ever had at a restaurant. CMCR usually is a great hotel/restaurant but this was awful. The waiter had no clue how to be a waiter. We had to get our own water, he never checked on us once, he messed up our food order, he barely knew how to open a bottle of wine. It was an embarrassing evening. We were just in shock to see other patrons getting up to pour their own waters, or go to the bar to get their own drinks. Our food came out cold 2 hours later. I will never dine here again and honestly they should just close the restaurant. I will never dine or stay at a cmcr resort

    Food was amazing! Loved the chicken supreme and the beef. Although it took about 45 minutes to get our food, wasn’t busy. But worth the Wait Music choice wasn’t the greatest for this this if location.

    Food was excellent! Hubby ordered a beer from the keg, which had not been open yet and they couldn't get it open. Some delay in getting a lass of wine. We were asked if we wanted fresh ground pepper and then the service staff asking never returned with the pepper. Desert was a walnut fudge pie. It was so hard to eat. We had to ask for a knife and fork and still hard to slice. Was tasty though!

    Menu is not as extensive or as good as in prior years. Starter and main were very good. The hazelnut and walnut torte dessert was rock hard. With the spoon provided, it was unassailable. The solution provided was to microwave it. Service was pleasant but very slow.

    The service was poor. Even though our server was kind and apologetic, we were the first guests and were there for an hour and a half before our entrees were served (TO GO because we had to keep an appointment that we almost missed). There were only two other parties (a couple and a family of three) who received all three courses before we were even told that there was a mix up with our order. Greatly disappointed in an experience that should have been good based on previous reviews. The one upside was the magnificent mountain view from our table. Would only recommend to a friend if the service is on par with other people's prior experiences.

    We very much enjoyed our experience here. The chicken was excellent! It has a warm rustic feel. Service was extremely friendly. Our only quibble was the long time it took to get our drink order. Just a brief walk for anyone staying at the Fairmont.

    We love to give rave reviews, but this restaurant is a ‘no go’ for us. After exception experiences throughout the Canadian Rockies, this final restaurant was so disappointing from greeting, to service, to food quality, to value. It is a stone’s through from Lake Louise which may be why it pulls in diners.

    Went to Deer Lodge two nights in a row partly out of convenience . Food was good both nights although menu is very limited. Service first night was slow but server was very friendly and attentive. Faster service following night but server not at good. Quiet place with rustic charm.

    Another lovely outside dining experience in the mountains of Canada. Flynn (female), took wonderful care of us. A delicious caprese salad, followed by a ribeye steak did the deed. Great bottle of Temparanillo to top it off.

    Our steaks were fatty and over seasoned. The bread for which there was an extra charge was stale. Service was slow although the restaurant was far from full. We’ve dined there in past years and had fabulous meals motivating us to dine more than once on a single vacation. We aren’t sure what changed but our experience this time was was a disappointment

    Really just not a great place. Not attractive inside the dining room we were in, not nice views - looking into the parking/service area, smudged windows, annoying music on poor quality speakers, and very mediocre food. We would not go back there.

    Ate here and was sat a table facing into a window with the sun coming though making it painful to keep my eyes open. We asked our waiter if he could close the shades, and he informed us that those particular shades were broken and said “every single window has shades in here that work except for that one”. After about 20 more min of trying to stick it out, we asked if we could be moved to a different table as there were LOTS available (4+ tables). We were told that they could not move us because all those tables were “reserved with special requests to sit there”. Even though we also had a reservation. Our waiter (Luke or Luca) was by far the rudest waiter we’ve ever had. Eventually they moved us to the section for people who do not make reservations where the service is slower. By the time we were done eating (2 hours later) not a single table had been filled that was apparently “specially reserved”.
