There are only a few high end dining establishments in the city and this is one. The other being the Quarry at Chateau Nova. I went with a lady friend and was really impressed. I had the Chef's Special which was venison while my friend had chicken supreme. Both meals took a while to come out but we weren't in... More

Went Saturday night for the Prime Rib special. I would say it is really good price and good portion and Taste good. With $23 you can have a 8 oz Prime rib and $27 a 10oz. The pic was taken in the 8oz. If you do not want to go out looking for food in the extreme cold weather, this... More

Trader is located inside the Explorer Hotel. We stayed at the Coast Fraser, but ended up going to Traders Grill twice because our first meal was so good. Wonderful service, nice woodsy views and great food.

Tried something new and ordered the Grilled Elk Loin Steak, medium rare. Steak was easy to cut, tender and juicy. Side dish was mash potatoes and vegetables, which were natural taste with no added flavours. Portion is quite big for an Asian, so for me, I just ordered the main course. The Elk Loin Steak seems to be served on... More

Title certainly not meant to be negative, but if you want upscale meals at upscale prices while in Yellowknife, this appears to be the place. The dinner menu looked fantastic, especially if you were doing a "special night out ". We dropped in for the breakfast buffet, decent selection and the pricing was ok. Atmosphere inside ok, enhanced by the... More

Big windows with views of the forest. Staff is attentive and helpful. Daily breakfast menu is very good. I was expecting more for the Sunday brunch -- it was good but not a lot better than the daily breakfast offerings.

The explore hotel is lovely and their restaurant I was worth a visit. Tried the elk loin which was very good. Everyone was happy with their meals. Its fairly pricey but not unexpectedly so.

Must try the elk loin and the venison, both on the menu. We were not disappointed in the least. The sunday brunch stands up to their claims!
