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

Great experience. Wonderful meal. Cheese fondue appetizer, short ribs sauerbraten for main course, and chocolate fondue with fresh berries for dessert. And of course an excellent wine menu. You just can’t go wrong.

About the restaurant
Shark Club is Sports HQ. What makes us so confident? Towering big screens showing every game and fight imaginable and a teeth-rattling audio system because a true sports bar always has featured games with the sound on, right? Not to mention, we’ve got an all-star staff that are in game shape to bring the best damn atmosphere outside of the stadium. We’re focused on you, driven by passion and hell-bent on making every trip hall-of-fame worthy.

Gastro Pub
Banff
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.
