Enjoyed sitting in a beautiful dinning room next to large windows facing a mountain valley with a wood burning fireplace crackling in the background. The service was was good with an attentive waitress (Anne from New Brunswick). The food was okay but not what you would expect considering the cost.

The beverage list was extensive; the menu is abbreviated compared to the Primrose or Eden, but had a children's menu! Lots of comfortable seating with great views and wonderful staff. The Steak and Frites were tasty, and the Gooseberry Creme Brûlée was terrific!

Wanted something quick for dinner so we ordered fish tacos. It came with two large tacos, coleslaw and green tossed salad. For $19 it was s generous portion. We sat at a window table so enjoyed the mountain view with spring snow falling. The tacos were delicious.

Nice atmosphere and pretty views. However, the burger I ordered was awful. Bun was over toasted and burger patty crumbled because it was so over done. Fixings were very minimal and burger came with no sauce. I asked the server if this was how the burger was supposed to come and received a rude response saying the burger came with... More

This is an elegant Lounge/Restaurant,located in the Rimrock hotel, yet it has a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Gather around the enormous fireplace or enjoy the breathtaking views from every window. There is a varied menu to appeal to most appetites and each item we ordered surpassed our expectations, especially the sampler platter which two adults were unable to finish. Prices... More

We have had many snacks and drinks in this lounge over the years and have always found it to be a very nice and relaxing environment. While it can be quite busy on the weekends, it is very quiet and pleasant during the week. We have also really enjoyed the snacks we have ordered here. We especially recommend the Healthy... More

Ate here twice whilst staying at the Rimrock, firstly in the lounge area itself with a view of the mountains then the next day in the more cosy bar area off to one side.

This is a big open air area in the lobby of the Rimrock. Does not feel like a restaurant. It can be confusing where/how to get food. Has excellent nachos here . Recommended for a few drinks and appetizers
