In all fairness my son thought the lunch was amazing with an all you can eat option and as a student it possibly did stack up for him. But having dined out on the best Canada had to offer from Vancouver Island to the Rockies,...More

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast on our way along the Parkway. They were not busy but it still took them 40 minutes to cook our eggs benedict. I didn't actually order eggs, but wasn't prepared to wait another 40 minutes for them...More

Came here a few times and I tried their deli sandwiches and beef burgers. The sandwich was good and they have a variety of things to drink, such as coffee, tea, energy drinks and juices. The burger was really good, no complaints. Great place for...More

We (myself and three other family members) had read so many previous terrible reviews about this buffet restaurant that we were really apprehensive about eating there. We were visiting there as part of a Brewster's trip to the Icefields and were expecting the worst! We...More

Nice view but over-priced food court food ($3 coffee, $8.50 soup, $9 poutine, $14 sandwich, $17 rice/noodle dish). Staff got annoyed when some customers need more time to pick what they want. One of the staff even got angry and asked "What are you doing!?...More
