The berry galette was amazing. So was the smoked meat platter for 2. Our server Vernon was personable and approachable. And a wonderful setting in Maligne Canyon. We will go back.

Service was outstanding, but the salmon was cold and dry, and they had a very limited menu. Just getting a plain old Cesar salad was not possible. Although the food selection was limited, they had about 3 pages worth of wines, cocktails, and other various drinks. Patio view was gorgeous and lots of space, hostess and waitress that served me were super friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, and others--from what I could see--were the same way. Food arrived very quickly, and we were there when they are pretty much at peak business hours on Saturday evening so they handle a large crowd very well (except for the cold fish). Offered free dessert and refund for cold salmon.

Loved everything about this place.

Our food was so delicious. We shared the tasting platter and every item on the platter was so delicious.

The food was presented within minutes of ordering, maybe only a 10 minute wait.

the location is beautiful, to be able to sit and see flowing water as you eat your meal and then go for a short walk across two bridges where you can view the canyon.

Would highly recommend this place to everyone.

Wow! We couldn't believe the location of this restaurant, overlooking this beautiful waterfall so your dinner ambience has the sound of running water the entire time. The food was so decadent we actually couldn't find the words to describe the first taste, it was so delicous! Go to this place and you will not be disappointed!

The tasting BBQ plater for 69$ should be priced at 150$ considering all the food you get. Also, best cocktails in Jasper.

Our family dined here for both lunch and dinner. We had an outside table overlooking the river which was wonderful. The pulled pork sandwich and Mac and cheese were a real hit with everyone in our group. For dinner my husband and I shared the wilderness platter, which we would highly recommend. It was excellent variety, superb taste and great value for the amount of food, especially when most of it is meat which can be pricey. We would definitely recommend, as this was a favourite for us at Jasper.

Amazing experience’ The service was prompt and warm, we sat outside by the river. There was only one chef working - but it didn't matter. He was cranking out the meals with precision at amazing speeds. The meat platter is recommended - all delicious.

This is the second time we have eaten at this restaurant. The food and service was excellent. Our reservation (recommended) was for 7:30pm and the establishment was only moderately busy. They were also spacing patrons out which was good to see. There was also room on the patio.

We dined here to celebrate our daughter and her husband’s anniversary. We have a great table outside on the patio by the river. Much nicer than in the town of Jasper for such an occasion. Something a little special. The food was wonderful and the service very accommodating.

We were very happy we tried out Maligne Canyon, the ambience with the roaring Maligne River was very nice. Relaxed vibe to it. Great location for a wedding! We ate on the Terrace. Our server, Vernon, has very friendly and prompt with our orders.
We were unsure of what to order and happy Vernon suggested the plater. Lots of food. A Bit to take home. We also appreciate that you have a spot set up for our pooch who we brought along.

It was nice. The patio was pretty and the waterfall was an unexpected bonus. The food wasn't as good as I expected. We got the beef brisket and it was really tough meat. Not what I'd expect for a brisket.
Server was lovely and friendly.

The food was cold and arrived very quickly (within 5 minutes) which led me to believe that it had been sitting there for awhile. We had the platter The brisket ( one small shaving) was hard and the one rib was fatty. Not impressed with the quality at all for the price you pay. Our waitress was top notch and very friendly.

We've been here twice and this has to be one of the best restaurants in the Jasper area. It's absolutely beautiful. The patio is fantastic. The service is great. Food is reasonably priced and very delicious. The BBQ concept offers something different but everything we have tried here has been great.

The athmosther, the locations, the service all was great, but the food was over rated and over priced. The bison was so dry and chewy with some kind of mashed potato, I would never pay $40 for that. It is a nice place, but don't expect much from the food. Be prepared to pay big $$.
