Diner Reviews
  • "Another memorable evening! My husband and I enjoyed a return to one of our favourite restaurants serving fresh Canadian food in a southern German style, accompanied by a red German wine from a list that boasted a fine variety of both grapes and prices. The joy of sitting in evening sunshine, watching trees, clouds and blue sky, accompanied by natural birdsong, was only bettered by the quality of smiling service. Our next visit in August will introduce family from Italy and Australia to a 'different' style of Canadian dining as we celebrate 70th birthdays past, present and to come. A fitting location for a one of a kind experience!"

  • "This was our third time we came for dinner. The food and wine was very good as usual, also service attentative and friendly. We'll come again for sure! We were hoping to get Elk and/or Wild Boar meat but that was not available and a bit disappointing."

We have been to the restaurant several times, and have always found the food delicious and the service top-notch and friendly. We especially love to sit outside when the weather permits. It makes for a lovely evening."

  • "It's very obvious that they've changed owners and that there is no longer an award winning chef in the kitchen. The food was just average. The manager was walking around in shorts as well. Not very professional in appearance. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food was good, but service was way too slow. Had to wait 30 minutes just to get our starter, and then another 45 minutes for our main dishes."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Food was very good, however, I requested a booth by the window a number of days before the date of my reservation. Because there were only going to be 2 of us, the restaurant said they could not sit us at a booth. Instead they sat us at a table for 4 in the middle of the restaurant and left the booth empty until there was a walk-in of 2 people who they then proceeded to sit at the open booth. I understand there is a need to maximize seating and that booths fit 4 people. The waitress said the evening was a bit slow so they could have accommodated my request. I am a regular customer of the restaurant and would ask in future they accommodate special requests when they are not full."

  • " Everything was perfect from the scallops to our main meal, and drinks. Wide variety of beers and wine, Our waitress was friendly and the atmosphere was lovely with the fresh cut rose and lit candle. Hope to be back soon and have recommended the experience to friends."

  • "We have been to the Bavarian Inn several times and never tire of the "spetzel" noodle dish and love the variety of excellent choices on the menu! The food has always been outstanding and the service excellent. This last time we had a bit of a wait for our order, but they were busy [Friday night] and we had lots to talk so didn't really mind! Besides...the wine list is amazing so one can always sip more wine while one waits...which we did! They do an outstanding job on fried liver and onions!! If you love it....this is an amazing place to order it! Their salads were also wonderful and the only sad part of the evening was that they did not have the Toffee Pudding for dessert that night! We all highly recommend it and come annually"

  • "This is our local evening out. We come here often. The food is fantastic and the service second-to-none. Worth the trip for Calgarians who want to escape the city buzz and enjoy an evening of fine dining under the trees."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Wish we lived closer so we could go more often! We love the maultaschen (both types) and cordon bleu schnitzel. Discovered a delicious radler beer this time that I will be having again. "

  • "Unfortunately the restaurant decided on Saturday rather than Sunday for Mother's Day dinner and we had to suffer the poor service while celebrating a special birthday. The food was however fabulous and our spot by the fireplace very enjoyable since we came in from a mid May snowfall. "

  • "Very much worth the drive from Calgary to Bragg Creek to dine at the Bavarian Inn. I love good German food and the Bavarian Inn did not disappoint. German food isn't complicated or "fancy", but it doesn't need to be. It's simple, good, food. And the Bavarian Inn does it right."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Not to fancy so good to be able to hike in the area in the morning and then pop in for a beer and schnitzel."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Very nice restaurant in the heart of Bragg Creek. Cozy, with great friendly service. Food is very traditional, so if you like full portions of German food this is your spot. Looking forward to coming back in the summer when the out door patio is open. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "We were there for dinner and everything was perfect. The wiener schnitzel and cordon bleu were awesome and made with veal. Other restaurant make their schnitzel with pork but the real wiener schnitzel is actually made with veal. We will go back for dinner. "

  • "We have been to this restaurant a lot and are always satisfied. Except this time it was not what we came used too. The service was unusual slow ,slow had to ask a couple of time were the waiter was could not see him at times for 15 to 20 min. It was busy no doubt and i found him at the other side in the bar section and he was indeed very busy and must have forgotten about us. As a couple we recommend going during the week as it is not as busy or Sunday evening. Overall this is a nice place to go if you like good German/Swiss/Austrian food and the wine selection is superb."

  • "The Bavarian Inn is a hidden gem in Bragg Creek. Their menu is extensive, the food is delicious, the prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. The restaurant offers authentic German dishes as well as other popular dishes and a chef's feature. During the months of March/April and September, the restaurant offers some items at a discounted price. The wine list at the Bavarian Inn is extensive. A very clean, inviting atmosphere. The owner is often present and it is evident that the ownership really take pride in their establishment. It has always been a positive experience for me, and is one of my favourite restaurants in the Calgary area."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The food is always fantastic. The goat cheese and beet salad is fantastic, and I had the schnitzel cordon bleu and my goodness was it amazing. All of the dishes are German food but they put a formal/fancy spin on the plating. Definitely worth every penny. The only complaint I had this time around was our server. She was a younger girl and it seemed like it was her first day, but she knew the items on the menu. She was making our drinks and she didn't put rimmer or lime in our caesar. We had to ask for bread at the table, and ask for refills of water. She didn't tell us the specials and we overheard them from another server at the table next to us. Duck lasagna? Um, yes please. If the server was better, you would have 5 stars."

  • "My husband and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the City so were pleasantly surprised by the peace and quiet of The Bavarian Inn. We were very pleased with our supper and also the portion size was adequate. I loved the warm friendly atmosphere and would definitely recommend the Inn to relatives and friends."

  • "we celebrated our 42nd anniversary with another couple who were also celebrating the same milestone. They had never been here before but will definitely be returning, There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience from the initial greeting, the "champagne", the service, the food, the ambience to just touch on the highlights. We love this place and will continue to go foe special occasions and the not so special ones too."

  • "Unassuming restaurant is 15 - 20 minutes drive west of Calgary nestled in the wooded forest of Bragg Creek. Inside the ambience is very homey and friendly; the view takes you into another 'zone' of peace and tranquillity. The food never disappoints. The Bavarian based menu is exceptional, and all is prepared in house by chef-owner, except for some of the delicious desserts supplied by local experts. Particularly recommend the tender seasonal game dishes. Prices are reasonable, for high quality and well seasoned dishes. Only a very limited selection of beer on tap, the wine list is more extensive. Friendly, unhurried service, so give yourself enough time to enjoy a leisurely meal."

  • "And hopefully this will be one of them. Been going for years and even after an ownership change (some time ago now) my favourite things are still on the menu and as good as they ever were."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "My wife & I went for dinner. The wiener schnitzel is outstanding. Our server was friendly, thorough and efficient. The appetizers were excellent and nothing beats home made apple strudel. It's a little far from the southend of Calgary, but worth the drive."
