Yet another wonderful experience in the Eden, our 4th visit over the last 10 years. Food is excellent, and service is outstanding, and the view is pretty incredible too. Even with it being full the atmosphere is bubbling rather than loud. A great experience.

About the restaurant
Overlooking the confluence of Spray and Bow Rivers, The Waldhaus. our "House in the Forest" is a retreat for those seeking solace from Banff's bustle. What began as the Clubhouse for the renowned Stanley Thompson Golf Course has transformed into a sanctuary of Mountain gastronomy. In the dining room above, rich timber and a majestic hearth narrate the epic tales of bygone explorations. Meanwhile, the Bierhalle below is where history and merriment collide, offering a spirited space for companionship, games, and the shared joy of storied adventures.

Please note:
- The Waldhaus is designated as a historical building and such has stairs to access all areas.
- The Bierhalle and Billardhalle only take limited reservations, otherwise operating on a first-come, first-served basis

Experience was great. Desserts and scones were very good. Most of the sandwiches were unappetizing with very dry bread. But I didn’t expect them to be great. I was looking for a great experience, ambiance, service and views all of which were great. Was a memorable afternoon for my daughter and I. The room did get fairly hot with all the windows so would be nice to reduce the temperature a bit.

About the restaurant
We’re Banff’s living room. We share Banff’s real mountain lifestyle – active living by day, living actively by night. Banff Ave Brewing is a place where locals come to share the stories of their mountain experience and plan the next one, and where out-of-town visitors come to feel comfortable and soak in the real Banff. We're stoked to offer three different spaces, two of which you can reserve tables for:

The Pub
Get comfy and hunker down for après-whatever in Banff’s almost-secret hideaway. Enjoy great craft brews and all your pub favourites in a casual venue that’ll make you feel like a local, no matter where you’re from.

The Lodge
Climb on up to our newest casual dining spot with an easy-going approach. Anchor in for Banff’s legit take on Detroit-style deep-dish pizza (if you know, you know), along with pasta and small plates – perfect for sharing with the crew.
