Had a late lunch there after skiing for few hours. Love the environment a lot. We had a few appetizers and one main course to share. Love the beef tartar and tacos a lot. Had a nice house red wine with the steak which were all good.

Called in for lunch. Excellent meal with excellent menu choices. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food served. Would be good if there was possibly a kids menu at lunchtime but otherwise a fantastic meal. Thank you !

When we visited Banff last April 2016 we ate at the Saltik and enjoyed our experience enough to look forward to our return trip. This time we had a less than ideal visit. The waitress struggled to accommodate our group of eight. The food and appetizers came at one time, the steaks were cold and not cooked properly. When we... More

We went back here recently after a one off fling with Chuck's and can confirm that in our book, Saltik is still the best steakhouse in Banff. I loved the California cut striploin with blue cheese - it's consistently fab - with skinny fries and mushrooms washed down by an Argentinian Malbec. My husband enjoyed his New York cut striploin...

Wow, what an amazing review! Thank you for taking the time in writing this review for us, your positive feedback is highly appreciated. We don't have a visual children's menu but we do however have some great options for children. We have a children's style mac and cheese, an Alfredo and noodle dish where you can add chicken or steak... More

Good atmosphere and service, but disappointed in food. The calamari chewy, gnocchi tasteless and doughy, ribs not tender

We had booked a reservation for this restaurant weeks in advance as we had heard it was a busy place. Being the end of reading week (Sunday) there was lots of room and we got a quaint little corner with a window. The service was excellent and the food was very good as well. Staff were very attentive. The appetizers... More

We dined at the Saltlik during our stay over reading week. The quality of food was top notch and prices are in line with other high quality steak houses. We arrived for an early meal, 5:45 pm, and were seated immediately without a reservation. Our 7 year old son was able to find something he would like and enjoyed the... More

We went to Saltlik twice during our stay in Banff. Once for lunch and once for drinks and eats. The burger earned the rating of the best in town. Also had the duck tacos...which were deliciously different. Second visit we had a couple of appetizers (calamari, wings, etc) and while our choices might appear uninspired the food definitely was.
