Welcome to our "cabin in the woods", Tekarra Restaurant, Jasper's fine dining experience since 1952. Chef Dale Nutt, and owners Mike and Cyndi Day, created a menu inspired by regional products such as Alberta bison and AAA beef, Wild Boar, free run chicken, and Arctic Char. Our appetizers feature small and shared plates and follow the same theme with meat and cheese boards, house smoked trout, and bacon jam. Our service team are here to ensure you have an enjoyable, relaxing dining experience. Cheers!

Great food with excellent service. Our waitress was terrific. Tekarra never disappoints! We enjoyed a glass of wine after dinner overlooking the river.

We enjoyed our meal. It was not mind blowing but lovely. It came highly recommended so we went it expecting more I guess. The baked Brie was expensive. The dinner entrees were nice but pricey.....
All in all a great meal but once again not incredible

Enjoyed a lovely meal in the patio! Great food and wine options, beautiful restaurant in a lovely mountain setting. Re-opened during the pandemic and servers were all wearing masks, hand sanitizer available both inside and outside. Loved the tomato and couscous salad as well as the lemon curd for dessert!

We were delighted with every course of our meal, the service was delightful and the charming historic cabin was the perfect cap to an evening in Jasper. Not to be missed.

The only thing that was good was the service and two tiny pieces of wild boar belly. We ordered the Brussels Sprouts, wild boar and beans, trout roll, kids chicken fingers & fries and The Bison Short Rib. Everything tasted terrible and was over done, the short rib was super dry you couldn’t hardly chew it. I’m very disappointed that we wasted our money there. We should have went back to Evil Dave’s.

It was just okay. Terribly expensive for what you get. I would of thought a warm piece of bread would of been nice and a starter salad. We also had to tell the waitress to turn the music down. We won’t go back

The building smelled like a horse barn. It was very cold so they sat us by the heater that didn’t work. Food was over priced but was not our taste.

This was our first time eating at the Tekerea Reaturant and it will not be our last. The meal was delicious. Our server was also very attentive (nice gentleman visiting Canada from Australia). Considering this was fine dining, it was very good value for the cost.

The sign outside says "lodge dining hall" but the food is anything but! Really delicious tried many things with a party of 5 and all excellent. Cocktails were nice as well with what appeared to be many local ingredients. Definitely recommend if you want to escape the Jasper summer crowds

Outstanding food against the backdrop of the beautiful mountains surrounding Jasper, AB. Rustic ambiance among the pines if you choose a seat on the patio. Friendly staff members are attentive without being obsequious. I highly recommend the trout sushi roll, the poutine, and the lemon curd dessert.

Enjoyed dinner here recently. Expensive, but most restaurants in the area are just as expensive. The bison short rib and the ribeye steak were both very good. (If they ask if you would like to add bacon jam; know that they charge extra for it). The most delicious part of the meal was the wild boar belly appetizer. (Probably not good for you, but I could have had a mess of that for an entree!).

A very good meal with a very interesting menu. The service was excellent and very friendly. Some very unusual (to foreigners) items on the menu which were very enjoyable. All round a greatly successful evening.

Whenever we are in Jasper, we have dinner at the Tekarra Lodge Restaurant. I love, love, love it! The food is outstanding, preparation is perfect, plate arrangement is exquisite, service is wonderful, surroundings are beautiful. The beet salad is a favorite. The shared platter with smoked trout, prosciutto, pepperoni, salami, figs, berry jam, carmalized onions, bread, pickled yellow beans, mustard is out of this world -- get several glasses of wine and line them up to share, and have an wine and food tasting on your own, the taste combinations are out of this world. The rack of lamb and beef skewers are also favorite main dishes. Thank you to the chef and staff for a memorable and enjoyable experience.

Lovely location and great ambiance but for the price the food is not really up to snuff. We both left feeling a bit hungry and unsatisfied. The staff were wonderful and friendly and the restaurant is kid friendly. Very good wine menu and I would love to rate it higher but the food just wasn't worth the price.

Ambience and staff were excellent. The baked bean dish was an odd flavour and a disappointment. The rib eye was slightly over cooked at medium and for $55 not a very good value. Overall our experience was ok and we will come back as we have had many exceptional meals before at this restaurant.

Very good food and nice place. Kids can dine as well and they have a kids menu and paper on the tables to colour on and crayons. Bison short ribs were amazing. Friend chicken was good too. Baked brie was good but not as good as the rest. Kids spaghetti and meatballs was good too. Service was ok. Would dine again.
