We did not expect the quality we received at our supper at Deer Lodge. The menu was unique and the meal was excellent. Timothy our server was perfect. We highly recommend!

We walked down from the Chateau for a dinner at Deer Lodge, through the gently falling snow, past deep piles of snow. A magical sight! The appetizers were excellent, and the main dishes were tops. Cariboo was delicious and well-presented. The tagine was very good. And the Pinot Gris from the Okanagan was great. Service was efficient and the price... More

Love the old log room. Staff was great. Our waiter seemed a bit flustered and the wait for dinner was an hour. Food was very good and portions were bang on. Price reflects the quality of the food. I would recommend.

Very cute historical lodge, the restaurant serves great local food. The roof top hot tub is a must try, surrounded by beautiful mountains. The lounge is very nice with antique furniture. Though the room is very very small, but I like the whole atmosphere of the lodge.

We went for dinner and mostly enjoyed that the restaurant was very quiet, only a few tables were occupied this evening. So service was good and wait times minimal. Had a charcuterie board to start, which was really good. My wife and I had the Caribou Medaillons as a main and our son the steak. All the meat was not... More

Since our restaurant of choice was not available this particular night, we decided to drive up the hill and have dinner in the lounge at Deer Lodge. We were seated promptly but it took a little while for the waiter to come back and take our order for drinks and bring us menus. Drinks came, orders were taken and the... More

THE FOOD After eating there, I heard they have two chefs and one is great and the other is terrible. We must gotten the bad one. The caribou was extremely salty. The caesar salad was authentic (anchovies in the dressing) and good, but not great. The ice cream was very good. THE SERVICE We arrived on time for our 6:30... More

We loved Deer Lodge. The staff were really friendly and helpful. It was cosy and warm when it was -30 outside.

We had dinner at Deer Lodge in Lake Louise while on Christmas holiday. We smartly made a reservation (definitely recommend), and we were seated immediately. Had the charcuterie plate to share, and it was delicious! Highly recommend it; various selections of their own cured wild game. Both main courses; smoked duck & caribou were excellent ! The service was prompt... More

We split a Caesar salad (substantial) and ordered the Elk Sirloin and Caribou Medallions. The meal was fine; however, of all the game food we tried at various restaurants we concluded that Bison was the most consistently tender, juicy and the most flavorful. Reservations are recommended.
