We made a reservation for the upstairs but ended up deciding to have dinner in the lounge. More casual atmosphere and crowd. The menu is different for the lounge. Not as many choices as upstairs but what we picked, we really enjoyed. The steak salad was delicious. For appetizers we ordered the ribs and the calamari. Both very good. Service... More

The food was ok, but not great. Service was good. We felt it was overpriced for what you get and would try another place next time.

One of our favourite things to do after a day of skiing or hiking in Banff is to go to Saltlik's lounge, ask for a table by the roaring fireplace, and split a delicious, juicy bacon cheeseburger. Saltlik is pricey like most places in Banff, but this burger is really delicious, and it's big enough to share. Staff is always... More

Had an awesome dinner with wonderful service. Very busy restaurant with good selections on the menu. NY steak with Blue cheese is still making my mouth water.

Walking around Banff trying to decide where to dine. I have a philosophy that why would I eat at a establishment that is near where I live.... Enjoying the evening I decided to go one block west off Main Street Banff. This savouring aroma caught my attention so I had to try it. First off great staff, very attentive and... More

I wanted to try the bison steak whist in Banff and Saltlik was recommended. The staff were great, knew what they were taking about and allowed us to have restaurant food in the bar. The bison was good. Great taste to it. The IPA was also really nice. If you like proper beer, not lager, then you should try the... More

We had a poor experience at this place. We went here after reading about it online. I ordered the ribeye steak and te Mac and cheese. The steak came cooked wrong and the waiter agrees, a nice apology and the steak was taken back. It came back and was still poor. The Mac and cheese was average for the crazy... More

Wanted a lighter meal after non-stop eating on holiday and got exactly that at Saltlik. Had lovely rotisserie chicken and beautifully fresh salad. Great service too. Really recommend this place, nice and buzzy atmosphere without being too noisy or busy.

Had an excellent meal here. The drink menu is vast and the food sections are excellent. Service was a bit slow, which was a bummer. My wine glass set empty for extended periods of time. Had service been better this would have been a five star experience.
