Recommended because of the history of the place. Like many other Banff restaurants, the quality has gone downhill while prices have jumped considerably. The management needs to do a better job at quality of food vs. prices they are charging. Location also needs a serious makeover. Dark, dreary interior and noise level way too high for 'family' restaurant.

We had an excellent, but slighly expensive meal. Our waitress was first class - friendly, attentive and very helpful.

The food and service at Melissa's were excellent. My wife got 2 lobster tails and
I got a strip steak. Both terrific and a great value. We highly recommend, especially
compared to what some of the restaurants in Banff charge and what you get.

One plate arrived cold. Replace was just as bad. Got a 10% discount on that meal which was less than expected

Food was too salty and wasn't worth the price. Milkshake was too sweet and the chairs and couches should be replaced.

The food was excellent. Probably the best meal overall that we had during our trip.
The guys had steak and it was cooked perfectly. I enjoyed the Salmon and brownie desert!

Fantastic food and service. Not brilliant value for money but not bad compared to other places in town. Try the deep pan pizzas, and the combo with lobster for a real treat!

We chose Melissa's Missteak over The Keg. My travelling companion loves steak and prime rib, Melissa's Missteak is by the best she has had in Banff! (sorry I'm not a steak eater)

Food was very good, prices on the higher side. We adviced the restaurant about the Birthday of my wife and this was just ignored what we found very disappointing! Service was also quite unfriendly.

Food was amazing but they need to hire a cleaning person, when you enter the restaurant that first impressions of toilets is not the greatest thing.

The food was very good at a much better value than most of the restaurants in Banff that we’ve dined at. My beef tenderloin was cooked perfect. I’d recommend this place for a nice family dinner or nice dinner date while in Banff!

We visited Melissa’s with our two teenage boys after a long day of sightseeing and had a fantastic experience. The food was wonderful, and we enjoyed the ambiance very much - we had a great conversation about the flags on the ceiling and naming the countries they went with - but the best part was the service. Donald, our server, could not have been more perfect with his timing, his recommendations, and his really friendly conversation. I would go back just to talk to Donald some more! He was the best server I can recall having anywhere, truly. From beginning to end it was a terrific experience!

A welcome surprise in Banff. Excellent steak and onion soup. Overall price not bad considering this is in a small tourist town. Definitely would recommend.

Don't let negative reviews influence whether you eat here, we almost did. We were thrilled with the menu and service. The food was absolutely delicious! A bit expensive but not as high as some other restaurants in Banff.

This is the Outback of Canada. Not a “must eat” place, but an okay option. Service was good but food was mediocre.

I think the experience depends on your server. Ours was poor, very little interaction, reached over for plates without excusing themselves. not friendly at all and we had visitors from UK. we choose at it was locally owned but would do the keg next time.

Delicious food and very pleasant dining experience. Everyone from hostess to waiter was very gracious and friendly. We were so happy they could take us that night when we called in the afternoon for reservation. Excellent dinner; our party of four all loved our meals. Fun casual and delicious!! Our dinners were elegantly presented as well.

The food was about what expected based on the reviews. The waiter was the issue - horrible. He treated it like fast food - never checked in us and only brought the food to the table. He never noticed our drinks were empty or that we had run out of bread.m. So bad that we had to pay another waiter because our waiter disappeared the last 15 minutes.

I asked for rare prime rib. The meat arrived done medium rare (just a little pink in the centre). Had I known that the meat would be medium by 5:00pm, I may have ordered something else. The server assured me that the meat was rare when sliced but became brown upon the jus being poured on top. Didn’t buy the explanation. However, the meat was still reasonably tender and tasty, so I didn’t complain too much.

The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. Our waitress also paid extra attention to our daughter and that made the experience all the better. It's always a great meal regardless of what I've ordered and the price is on par with an establishment of this order. I also like that it's off Banff Ave which makes parking easier if you happen to be staying further away. All in all we've never had a bad experience here and although there's plenty to choose from in Banff we keep coming back!
