A $25 pepperoni pizza? You heard right. And for that price it should be great. But it wasn't. There aren't very many games in town, but I would have rather spent a few dollars more at the Lakeside Chophouse. The Caesar was edible, but I can't say much more than that.

This place is quaint, clean and the service is good. But, expect to pay high prices for the food. Was stunned that lunch for 2 people was over $50. We didn't eat here again.

Service was friendly and timely. So props for the team working there. The food was average and somewhat overpriced for what we got. Bison Taco Salad, pretty small portion in an edible taco bowl that didn't allow for much content to be added. Kids menus, chicken fingers and fries was expected and filled the kids up.

The food here was just fine. Average. The prices were crazy, the same as across the street at the much much nicer Chophouse.

Since they were near the end of their season, they were out of a lot of things (soup/desserts/etc) which was quite disappointing. We tried this place because the Bison burger and Bison meatloaf reviews. Tried the meatloaf...and I'm sorry to say it tasted like it was from a t.v. dinner. The prices were way too high for the quality of... More

That was by far the worst meal I've ever had, bar none. Every thing came out of a can or bag. The slab of ...beef? was braised to death and tasteless. My wife chicken thing was smothered in some kind of jam. And my son's $26 12" pizza was soggy. not to mention $14 for a pint (22oz) of beer.... More

There were four people in our group and we all had something different, burgers to salads. Everything was very good. Prices were what you would expect in a tourist location like this. Service was great!

We chose Trapper's for lunch while in Waterton (which we loved) as part of a Caravan Tour (which we also loved and highly recommend). We both ordered the Bison burger which turned out to be one of the best I've had. Great French fries too. The place was very busy but the wait staff was very good. The restaurant was... More

mom and daughter went to Trappers for breakfast before heading out on a hike. We ordered coffee, tea, eggs, bacon and toast - all gluten free. Coffee and tea were served. Approx 5 mins later the waitress came to our table and said the kitchen chose to not serve us food as all because of the Gluten free dietary restrictions.... More
