My wife and I had a booking for 8 pm and was promptly taken to a reserved table. Great meal. Excellent service. A little on the pricey side but on the whole was a great experience and would certainly visit again.

It was ok. We ate dinner and breakfast. The service wasn’t great either time. It took a long time to get drinks or even be greeted by the waiter. Food was pretty good but not the best I’ve had!

Although closing this weekend, Lakehouse Chophouse provided us with a good dinner in a busy tourist town, even in late September. Our table was ready when we arrived and the view was lovely.

We were in to celebrate our anniversary. We both ordered the shrimp and lobster linguine. When we got our meals, they clearly looked different and when we tried them they didn’t taste the same at all. Our server apologized quickly got us a new pasta and it was phenomenal. Great service and great food. We will definitely be back next time we are in Waterton.

The server was lovely and organized. We sat outside and although there are no heaters it was a great temperature this late in the season. It was great not to have music playing outside but to listen to the sound of the fountain instead. We ordered baked brie to start and it seemed to have been grilled not baked. It didn't get warm enough and didn't melt all the way through. We each had pasta and the gnocchi was great - very flavorful. The bison lasagna I enjoyed as well.

Chophouse is amazing as always. Our yearly getaway for lakeside ambiance with great dining options . Best meals in Southern Alberta. Always a great dining experience not to be missed by any travellers.

Nice setting. Friendly professional service. Overall food and drinks were good. Husbands steak was good quality and prepared well, he enjoyed it. Overall my parm crusted chicken was good but it comes with a "tomatoe salad" which was a pile of greens with half of one cherry tomatoe, dish comes with cream sause and the bit I did get on chicken was tasty and complimented the chicken nicely but most was soaked up by mashed potatoes. chicken was nice and moist but would have liked more sauce for it. Burgers at next table looked good so will probably return to try them.

The restaurant was beautiful, quiet and had beautiful views overlooking the lake. I ordered steak and mine was a bit dry, and my husband also ordered a steak and his was overdone. However, the sides and drinks were AMAZING! I would definitely want to go back and give it a second go if I’m ever in Waterton again!

We were there for our Anniversary. Tables on the deck outside had a wait and were hard to get. The manager took care of us and promptly seated us outside. It was much appreciated! We will be back.

Had to wait to be seated even with a reservation, got water, no glasses, got appetizer, no cutlery or extra napkins. Had fish and chips with coleslaw, the fries were the only good item. Sad to say out waiter was all over the place and we were always put on hold. Have been to the Chophouse yearly and this was our worst experience, will look ar hav8ng our meal somewhere else on our next trip.

Beautiful location overlooking the lake and food was pretty good but service was slow- drinks, once we were done eating we sat with dirty dishes for a really long time, to get the bill. The sections for the servers seemed weirdly organized and ineffecient.

Thank you for giving me an opportunity to review my Bayshore Inn dining experience. My background is food service and have been a chef for 40 years and understand the tremendous difficulties all food service outlets are facing during Covid 19. That being said here is my review. SERVICE. The service side requires better training and supervision during service to ensure guest have the best experience. My expectation at the beginning of the meal was for a nice relaxing evening but I felt rushed (diner service in and out) when our server kept coming over and asking us if everything was ok. The server should be properly trained in the presentation of wine to the table. food should always be served from the left not reaching across the table. FOOD plate presentation was fair to good however fish was dry. Dessert was well presented. Overall we were disappointed with the quality and service as we were expecting a higher level reflective of the price we paid.

Great food, beautiful view. Entrees can be a little on the pricy side, but probably the best food and view in Waterton Park, so it’s worth it. Very convenient location for people staying in town.

We were there for a special engagement dinner to celebrate the events of the day (my proposing to my partner). Service from the very beginning was lacklustre. I’m usually a huge fan of this restaurant but after the dinner there last night, I don’t believe we will be back. It was supposed to be special and they made it very mediocre at best.

Caring and attentive staff. The deck is an excellent place to dine. If that's what you want, recommend asking for it on reservation. Be aware that this is a windy locale at times. While the dinner menu is somewhat limited, it is well prepared and presented. The Caesar as a drink is recommended. It is "all dressed."'

We sat on the patio for my bfs 50th birthday. Honestly our waitress on the lounge side was much better then our waiter on the patio. He was nice enough but did not engage in any conversation. Just seemed in a hurry to drop food and run. I know you are paying for the view, but it was more fun to sit on the lounge side and watch main street. Drinks were over priced tho and we had better food almost everywhere else we went.

Food is excellent. Tables were properly distanced. Service was good. Only negative was although having a reservation we had to line up behind people who did not have one. There should be separate lines. Also it should be possible to reserve inside or outside tables when booking.

Restaurant s very well located and food est excellent and well presented. I wa frustrated by the reservation system. Despite booking 3 days in advance and requested the exterior, upon arrival they said a minimum of 45 minutes needs to spent on the bar before we can be tabled. End up in an ok spot inside.

View was beautiful and even though we were inside, because of the breeze coming in and the large windows, we felt like we were outside. My husband requested extra vegetables as he didn’t want the mashed potatoes, but he didn’t receive any more than I had. Plain steamed vegetables are a little disappointing when having a steak dinner at a “fine dining” restaurant. Having said that though, we had our best meals (had breakfast there too) in Waterton at the Lakeside Chophouse.

During these pandemic times, Lakeside Chophouse did a great job. The service may be a little slower than usual, but that is fine - don't be in a rush, enjoy yourselves. Lots of space, beautiful views, and moderate levels of conversation, make the experience peaceful, and a pleasure. Thank you.

Terrible experience with the food... salad sent back twice; once for hair, second time for plastic in the salad. Steak was undercooked & dessert was still frozen in the middle. Overall a very disappointing experience for the price. Would not recommend.

I really enjoyed the lobster and shrimp pasta. My husband's steak was a little tough at the beginning but after 2nd bite it got better. Glad the meals were served hot. The key lime pie was unbelievable. I have never had one so good.

We booked in for our anniversary. Dinner was nice, fairly good portion sizes and we loved their fun cocktails. We tried the berry smash and the raspberry spritzer, they were light and fruity. Dinner wise we had the salmon and I found there to be a bit too much sauce but it was easy to take some of it off. My husband had the Parmesan crusted chicken and it was delicious! Very tender and juicy chicken. Our server Jada was wonderful. Very sweet and attentive! Dinner was a bit on the pricey side but was served quickly and efficiently, the views are lovely and overall it was an enjoyable evening.

The food is overpriced for the quality for sure!! When you are charging $35+ for an entree, it better be pretty darn good and we found the food just average at best. Would not come back.
