    Lovely drive out to a beautiful place for a birthday dinner. We arrived a bit early but they had no problem letting us in 20 mins. before reservation time. Got seated at a nice table, had a beautiful new tempranillo (Lira) and started our feast. 2 guys had the goulash soup (great reviews), I had the dumplings (delish), and all our food was over the top excellent. Could not believe the size of the veal cordon bleu! Despite a screaming baby at the next table with unconcerned parents, the whole experience was fantastic. Highly recommend this for a special dinner.

    Nice change of menu from the same old, same old found in so many restaurants - loved the red cabbage and choices of mustards for the sausages! We had a quiet spot by the fireplace. The music was appropriate for evening dining and not too loud. Lovely drive from Calgary. Will definitely go again.

    Cold lighting, uncomfortable booths, uninteresting food choices offered on tired menu's. Little interaction from the server, table candle not lit and food just average. Background music through poor speakers and hardly distinguishable. Used to be a favourite and predictably good dining experience under past owner. Maybe it was just an "off day".

    At first I was worried when I heard that the Bavarian Inn had new owners but I now think it is even better than before. The menu has a few mainstays that have been complimented by great new additions. There is more variety of dishes and the quality and taste is excellent. The service was relatively quick, friendly and helpful. It's a nice drive from Calgary to visit and the food is worth the time. I have no problem recommending this restaurant and look forward to going back. I recommend the Jaeger Schnitzel.

    We took our son for dinner for his birthday, He is a chef, his 1st time, we have been here multiple times, he tried to book a place in Calgary, but nothing was available till later in the evening, so we suggested the Bavarian Inn, We let him do most of the ordering for everyone so we all had different selections, everything was fabulous from the wine to the appetisers, dinner and even desert, considering the place was busy, the service was still exceptional. I have a food allergy and they always take such good care of me, we love coming here, feels like our little place. My son even says we can take him there again,

    We went to the Bavarian Inn in Bragg Creek for an anniversary dinner. Have been here before & have always had good food & service. Requested a quiet table for two, but we were placed in the lounge & there were quite a few families with small children eating there. Very loud & chaotic. It seemed to be a night that was more busy than usual. They do not usually place large family groups in the lounge. Was a very nice meal & good service. Would come back even though it was too loud on this visit.

    Glad we made an online reservation because the restaurant was quite booked up. We got a table near the fireplace (which would be chilly on cooler days if the fire is not going because there is an outside draft). At any rate, we had the seafood sampler and it was delicious. I had pork medallions with a Berry-Stilton compote with side vegetables & spatzl. Mine was very, very good and I'd have it again. My husband had elk in peppercorn sauce and though his was good, he liked mine better. The wine menu was good with several options. They even had a page of discounted wines as they were clearing some types from their cellar. We are so happy we tried this restaurant again, since they serve much more than just schnitzel.

    Once again our Bragg Creek favorite didn't disappoint us or our guests - impeccable service with a smile, awesome menu choices that will satisfy any appetite or palate, generous portions, cozy & comfortable ambiance and the gourmet cuisine continually ignites our taste buds that keep us coming back for more. The Chef is amazing! The cucumber salad is a work of art, the veal dumplings get the food party started and my bison entree was prepared to mouth watering tender perfection. Perfect spot for an afternoon appetizer and cocktail on the patio, a romantic dinner for 2 or a special occasion with family and friends. Make reservations because it is a popular spot. Enjoy. :-)

    Barvarian Inn did not have our reservation. They had lots of room and sat us in the empty half of the restaurant. Then the space filled up over the next hour and everyone was served food while we waited for our orders. 20 minutes before water was served. Another 20 before bread. Reservation was at 12:30 and we received our food about 2:15 and were out of there about 2:30. I would have left but it was a family lunch. Should have talked to the owner but didn't have time.
