Beautiful scenery around. We've noticed two mule deer at the parking lot. Quiet and nice area. Nice and cozy restaurant, but...upon arrival our reservation was somehow taken? by somebody else already. Luckily it was fairly empty, so we had no problem taking different table. We went with Sunday brunch menu. They just ran out of fruits, so we were served two plates of fruits for three people. Fair, as it was already past 13:30. My wife ordered Chorizo Avocado Benny. After about 15-20 minutes it arrived without any avocado as they ran out of it obviously. No heads up was given to us about that, so she was pretty disappointed, as she ordered that dish because of the avocado. I've got myself Holstein. Breaded pork schnitzel was excellent and the portion was huge. Both the pan-fried potatoes on my wife's plate and spätzle on mine were barely warm. Service was good, but we left rather unimpressed. Not planning to come back anytime soon. Maybe just a bad luck?
DISAPPOINTED -- NOT WORTH THE 35 MINUTE DRIVE FROM CALGARY.
Great reputation harmed by poor service (one soup arrives before other soup which was forgotten by waitress; main courses appear before soup is finished to sit on side of table - hardly what one expects from a high quality, well reviewed restaurant) and just terrible main courses of Salmon and Pork Jager. Salmon hardly tasted like salmon, and its smell presented it as not fresh fish - not the first time the author has eaten salmon in his long life, but this was certainly the absolute worst. Two bites taken; ruined the dinner.
Pork Jager was equally bad and would not have qualified as a local dish in in any Gasthaus in Germany - over-cooked, dry and tough. Although told otherwise, the very watery clam chowder had chicken pieces in it - claimed to be sturgeon. One of the two diners is a chef and knows chicken from sturgeon. To conclude the dinner, even the Apfel Strudel did not meet any good standard.
This night for this reviewer, The Bavarian Inn in Bragg Creek was living on its reputation.
The food was excellent and the service very good. We had ordered the spatzle in place of the potatoes on one meal and it wasn't caught, but no big deal. It was a little loud with a couple of groups there, but that was to be expected.
Our third visit since discovering it in late Aug. Took friends with us (their first time) and they couldn't decide what to order because it all looked so good. One friend said his elk sirloin was the perfect blue! Desserts were fabulous. Friends want to go back again.
Talked for days about the food and flavours . Very original . Nice ambiance and comfortable . Conversation levels good and some children at tables . If not behaved can be a nightmare evening but they were quiet. Thanks to the parents that night . You have made a good restaurant more elegant than before you will definitely see us more often. It was a perfect evening.
Our family of four had a wonderful time celebrating the Christmas season at the Bavarian Inn. The food was excellent and filling and the service was attentive. It was a nice surprise to find half priced bottles of wine on the menu.
Was wonderful food and service
I had not been to the Bavarian Inn for several years but always remembered it as being a great place to go for a very special occasion. Monday was a very special occasion for me and a very special friend, and the Bavarian Inn lived up to every expectation. Even the drive out was so good. The service, food and time could not have been better. I was so pleased and my special friend felt exactly the same. Thank you so much,... we will be back again soon.
Very good overall. Good portions , and great tasting food. Friendly service and atmosphere.
Excellent food, generous portions. Good hearty German food, definitely worth a trip to Bragg Creek.

This Restaurant has always lived up to its reputation for fine authentic German cuisine ,friendly atmosphere and great value. Please keep the great standards . Thank You.
We have never been disappointed. Food is excellent. And the staff is always friendly.
We went last Sunday, November 11. My Mother-in-laws Birthday. We had the best time. She was so impressed with her eggs benny with salmon. Everyone’s meals were excellent. Highly recommend this gem.
Thank you to all the staff
I can not say enough good things about the Bavarian Inn! This is seriously one of the best restaurants in Alberta.
I had a beautifully done Elk steak. Where else can you get a locally sourced elk steak?
The service is outstanding, and the prices are outstanding.
It’s more than worth the drive. Try it out!
Always a great place to go, whether quiet or busy. An asset to the community
Great German food well prepared and presented. Service was prompt and freindly
What great value for top notch quality. The rabbit was amazing, our server was new but did a great job and the 1/2 price wine was icing on an already amazing cake!! Always a favorite.
Nice place for a great meal with an atmosphere quiet enough for casual conversation. A new go to place for an evening with friends.
Pork Jager was tough and did not seem to be pork tenderloin. Way overpriced for the quality.
Excellent food and service. Their Sunday Brunch has an excellent choice of outstanding dishes
Dinner on Oct 20, 2018 - My wife and I had the Mushroom Baked Brie and Maultaschen for appetizers and the Cordon Bleu and Rouladen for main courses. For dessert we had the Mixed Berry Crumble and Black Forest Cake. Everything tasted great. The service was friendly and timely and I enjoyed the German weiss beer. We will definitely eat here again.
This place is great, hoping to come back very soon!
Shannon the server was fantastic. Ambience is second to none and the food was delicious.
Will definitely come back.
Delicious and very authentic. We had an amazing anniversary dinner; it was fun to try something different. We highly recommend this great restaurant.
We spent a nice time there with group of friends. Food was great, served in timely fashion giving us opportunity to talk.
The Food was great,!! This is a really nice place to go.
Always a great choice!
Second time here, food was amazing, delicious. Will most definitely return.
Enjoyable meal on a busy Saturday evening. 4 different starters and entrees - all were nicely presented, very tasty, generous servings, and the plates were cleaned. Service was attentive and knowledgeable.
A nice destination, close to Calgary.
We have been there before a few times and expected an authentic German dinner, as it was before. But, unfortunately that was not the case. I had the wild boar dish, which I had before and it was delicious. Not this time, the meat was tough although pink on the inside. Also, this should be served with red cabbage and not some sort of salad??. My husband had the liver which was usually delicious. Again, not this time. The liver itself was good but the side was kind of a shredded salad?? and potatoes. This dish used to be served with mashed potatoes, fried onions and apples as it should be!
Overall we were disappointed with the quality of the food. Beer was good as was the service!
We found everything to be very good. We enjoyed the food the very tasteful soft music and the setting was excellent. Also the service was good. Will come again Thank you.
As always, the service was fantastic and food was incredible .
My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and it was excellent. The food was creatively displayed and cooked to perfection. Great setting and nice cozy food menu.
The atmospheres was great and the food good. I would try there special next time or something other than the schnitzel, it was good but nothing outstanding.
The first time we went first dinner on a Wednesday night. It was wonderful. The service was perfect, the food was fantastic and it was well worth every penny. We recently went for late lunch on a Sunday and it was not near what it was the first time we went. The service was just ok. Half the food was wonderful but the other half wasn't so good. We were surprised that there wasn't German music being played instead of the operah music. Not sure if we will return.
The food was too salty, veg was undercooked - potatoes were crunchy and inedible. Portion sizes were wildly variable between different dishes.
Birthday dinner with Grandparents. All the staff were very nice!
