The 10 oz peppercorn is my favourite but this is the best steakhouses in town all the way around. Steaks to perfection. Try the scalloped potatoes. Service was excellent and knowledgeable about the wine and food menu both. Lighting and ambiance is good as well. Seating and tables were nice and private distances. I would recommend the lamb as well.... More

Went to the Salt Lick with a group of 16 or so, service was not bad but nothing to brag about. Atmosphere and décor were the best parts of the restaurant. Food range from good to just OK. Main course steak was good, sides were fair, and the Crème Brulee I had for desert I had to send back, they... More

We ate here and it was amazing! I had the steak with blue cheese and some vege sides and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. It's a great balance in atmosphere where it's a nicer restaurant but not too over the top. Couldn't recommend more!!

Intially sitting down wasnt very good experience as a group of about 8 people waiting for a table were all standing around where we were seated. The food itself was good and the waitress was attentive to our food and drinks. The worst part was a busboy or expo person that kept making awkward jokes. The one that got me... More

A local recommended Saltlick to us and we weren't disappointed. I ordered the steak and it was cooked perfectly (I like my meat rare) and the ribs were very nice. Front of house wasn't welcoming at all, and didn't crack a smile but our waitress was lovely.

We ate here twice on our recent stay in Banff. Both meals were superb, the Bison is awesome and would also recommend the Elk! Have to make special mention of Matthew, our server on our first visit; he really made the meal that extra bit special. Coming from Dubai we have been spoiled a little with service standards but Matthew... More

Had a birthday dinner there last week; just as good as ever. We've visited many time over the years and it has been consistently excellent every time. The 8oz Sirloin is good enough for most but the larger cuts are something special. Cocktails are a speciality too, downstairs is slightly more casual, not inexpensive but worth the $
