“OK Food - Had hoped for better considering we were at the Fairmont”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) came here one evening for a casual dinner. We have nothing bad to say about the food or the service. It was good, but nothing really special. It was a little pricier than I would have paid for a similar experience at home, so I had slightly higher expectations. Our family had ordered Prime Rib, the Tamarack Pizza, the Western Beef sandwich, and the Pulled Pork sandwich. Our family had the highest praise for the Tamarack Pizza which was on a thin crust. On the other hand, we agreed that the Pulled Pork sandwich we shared at Sidings General Store (and Restaurant) in Field, BC was much more tasty. We ate at the Fairmont, it was good, but I'd likely give someplace else a try on my next visit.

“Horrible service and below average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

We had just arrived from hiking in Jasper and wanted a light meal for our first night at the Fairmont Lake Louise and without having reservations anywhere, we opted for the Glacier Saloon....what a mistake. The waitress has always missing in action. We had to ask for water, signal her for other drink refills, waited forever for our food because she had forgotten to pick it up. It was not a very busy night, so we really couldn't understand all the delays. The wait was not worth it. The food was below average and the drinks were watered down. When she did finally bring us a bill, without a pen, we decided that once was enough for this restaurant.

“Would return!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

We went to the Glacier Saloon our first night in Lake Louise. The menu was a typical bar menu but we were pleasantly surprised with the meals when they came. I had the cheese steak sandwich and my wife had the pulled pork and they both were very good and the portions were huge. The service at the saloon was excellent and very respectful. If I go back to the Chateau this would be the first restaurant I would hit.

“A saloon - but a friendly family atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2011

Whether you want to watch the sport, treat the kids or look at Lake Louise then this is the place for unfussy food (burgers,tex-mex,etc) and friendly service. Prices aren't too bad for Chateau Lake Louise. It wasn't too noisy either - but then I wsn't there when there was an important ice hockey or baseball match on! It was June, I'm English, I watched Wimbledon!

“Cozy & Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2010

Glacier Saloon is located in the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. We walked by and the aroma drew us in. The environment was nice and cozy with TV’s and a pool table. Everything we ate was very good. The staff was pleasant. I would definitely eat there again.
