There are more than 100 eateries in Banff National Park, and visitors have a wide range of dining options—from fast-food outlets to chain restaurants to award-winning fine-dining experiences. Eating out is, for the most part, a casual affair with an emphasis on local foods served in large quantities. Trout, venison, elk, moose, and bison appear on the menus of even the most modest establishments.
It’s a good idea to make reservations at popular restaurants in advance, especially during the peak summer and ski seasons. Like most national parks, prices are slightly inflated.
