Absolutely incredible. Best dining experience we’ve ever had. The staff was so receptive, they accommodated every request, gave us the perfect amount of attention. The food was awe inspiring. Had quite possibly the single best bite I’ve ever had for pre dessert. Can’t say enough good things.

Fun little night! It is mini balls and just 5 pins, so that was a little surprising. Still we had a great time! Food menu is limited, but the nachos were good. Bar is mostly beer, wine, and canned cocktails. They have a full bar but can’t make mixed drinks (ex. Margarita) so I think they probably just do basic drinks like vodka/soda. We had a great time!

About the restaurant
The Summit Restaurant located in the clubhouse at the Kananaskis Country Golf Course is a perfect spot for so many different occasions. With the best patio in the Kananaskis Valley and arguably the Canadian Rockies, it sits at the foot of Mt. Kidd and is a place to create memories for all occasions. We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, rain or shine for the duration of our golf season. Everyone is welcome to join us at the Summit Restaurant who is visiting the area.

If you are golfing prior to joining us, please make your reservation 4 hours and 45 minutes after your tee time.

Our patio is sat on a first come, first serve basis. We will attempt to honor all the patio requests that we receive.

We do keep tables for walk ins in case your desired reservation time is not available.

It should be rated the best patios in Alberta! The Briggs burger is their specialty and does not disappoint! We used to share it but realized it is too delicious to share!

About the restaurant

Award winning Chef Tracy A. Little connects the guests through her love of the mountains, of food and foraging. The team incorporates this into everything they do with a focus on sustainability and craftsmanship. The servers will guide you in your tasting menu experience. We offer a selection of Canadian wines for our wine pairings, and unique, house made juices and other concoctions as a non-alcohol pairing option. Featured on Chefs Vs Wild. If you are interested in cocktails or mocktails, we have the most original and sustainable wild potions that you will find, and a rotating bar snacks menu to pair. Please do not reserve for cocktails and bar snacks, but walk in! We will be happy to seat you!

Due to the size of our kitchen, we are not able to accommodate substitutions. We do offer menus for common allergens. Before booking with children (or in the summer with dogs), please consider if your child is comfortable sitting for up to 2.5 hours quietly at a table.
