Banff National Park Restaurants


The Bison

The Bison Review

"Rocky Mountain comfort food" made with organically grown local ingredients is on the menu, and as the name implies, bison is a specialty here. There is an emphasis on slow cooking and making everything from scratch—even the ketchup and mustard for the bison burgers are made in-house. The decor is modern and contemporary, with hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and an open kitchen. The bison onion soup and bison short ribs with roasted potatoes are specialties, but you'll also find wild BC steelhead trout, poached halibut, and Alberta lamb on the menu. This is a popular spot for Sunday brunch.
