I always love to go to the Bavarian Inn restaurant. Saturday night I brought a friend who had never been there before, and I was raving about how good this restaurant is. Unfortunately, on this night my friend had ordered the rack of lamb where the meat was hot but the rest of the plate was cold! I was so disappointed when I found this out at the end of our evening together. I was hoping this would be a wonderful dining experience for her, but the cold food was a real disappointment. I wished she had said something, but she didn't want to spoil the evening. My meal was from the seasonal menu. I had the halibut, and it was fantastic! It was a very busy night in the restaurant, and so the noise level was a little louder. I'm so glad that this restaurant does not crank up the music to compete with the voices! Most restaurants are horribly noisy , but here you can enjoy conversation in a lovely environment.
It was our granddaughter 18th birthday and everything from the time we arrived to the appetizers, main course and desserts was fantastic. The staff the food and location where more than we expected. We would highly recommend this location to all our family and friends.

Saturday, we had a dinner at your restaurant. The food was good, but service was one of the worst we had for a long time. The server was a long blonde hair with a pony tail – don’t know her name.
1. After we ordered, she asked if we want the mushroom souse on the side, giving us the impression that it was part of the meal. To our surprise at the end, it was an extra $4.00.
2. Had to ask her twice to bring salt and pepper.
3. She took my ginger ale away when I was ¾ finish with it without asking.
4. We ordered one carrot cake split in two and put it in two plates. Had to ask her twice and still the cake arrived on one plate and that’s it. Then, I explained it to another server that we ordered one carrot cake split in two and put it in two plate. We received one carrot cake on a plate and 2 extra plate.
5. Had to ask for the bill twice.
6. Once we received the bill the third person was charged with the carrot cake – she never order it.
7. We had too explain it to her again.
All in all we came out from your restaurant with a bad experience.
Great restaurant, food was amazing, portions were HUGE! Would like to see 1/2 sizes of meals so that one could enjoy appy’s.
Initially the welcome and service was excellent but as the restaurant filled, service was slower. The food was disappointing compared to what is was with the previous owners - we ordered our previously favorite dish but the sauce was bland and the meat rather tough although the spaetzle and the presentation was very good. We were looking forward to the Black Forest Cake to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary but were informed they were out! We had an early reservation (6 pm) so didn't expect they would be out! They did give us a complimentary alternate dessert but it wasn't very good.
Bavarian inn is a fantastic high quality dining experience. They have many authentic German dishes. The schnitzel served here is on par with any schnitzel i had in Germany while I was there. They have great import beers as well for a good price. The service is fantastic, all their waiting staff and kitchen crew are superb. 5/5.
Excellent food and service. After a few years of “finding themselves “ the Bavarian Inn is now consistently outstanding. You gotta go!
Lengthy wait times for food.
Service iand the meal was outstanding
We were there for my husband birthday and experience was amazing . Our server was very good and checking on us again and getting g reviews about food . We really appreciate her service . We will recommend this place to our friends and family for sure .
Excellent food, friendly service ... everything is made to order so patients is a must.
Food was good, but wish it was a bit more traditional. The pork hock tasted amazing, but the outside was soft (traditionally it is crispy).
The 'Bav' offered Excellent food, service, and ambiance! I truly enjoyed every bite and felt so relaxed in the space. This restaurant is truly a hidden gem in Bragg Creek and well worth the drive if you are coming from Calgary, Cochrane, or other nearby community.
Very nice location. The restaurant is cozy and has a nice ambiance which includes white linen napkins on the tables. The staff are very nice and provide good service. The food was tasty and attractivly served. The menu offers a good selection of items; however, no designation is made as to which are gluten free or vegan etc.
Booked for the reunion of a daughter and her parents who hadn't connected in 5 yrs. Great place for such an even. Hi quality food and good atmosphere. Server seemed to be a little stretched and was slightly slow.
Excellent food but was a little slow coming out. We thought it was a set Valentines Day menu but you could also order off the regular menu. They likely should have just had the set menu and it would have been faster. Lovely, quiet and comfortable dining area. We will continue to go back!
A great menu of local delicacies in a cozy atmosphere with many wines to choose from
The food and the restaurant were fine-didn't appreciate being hustled out the door
We are frequent diners at the Bavarian Inn, and this most recent visit was perhaps the best yet. Our preference is for quiet, so chose to eat in the lounge and had it to ourselves while the noisier tables were in the dining room. The food was as always, amazing. I had the Elk Short Ribs - absolutely to die for! My husband always gets the veal schnitzel and said it was excellent. Service will make or break a meal out for us, and we were very pleased with the professionalism of our server, she was perfect - just the right amount of attention. New owner Eric has done a great job with keeping all that attracted us to the Bavarian a focus, but upgrading the décor, and ensures a perfect calm Jazz through the meal at just a nice volume. A perfect evening - thank you, we'll be back!
This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will definitely return. The service was professional and courteous, the food was excellent. We met some friends there for Saturday lunch, their first visit also, and we left 3 hours later! Really enjoyed our visit.
First time here and would come bavk. The food was great, server was new and will get better with time. Overall a good experience.
Took friends there for her birthday. There first time there and they loved it. Very pleased.
Simply Fantastic! Cannot believe as a Calgary native now living in Cochrane - that I had never been to the Bavarian Inn. Will be back many times I'm sure. Sunday Brunch menu next up!
I've been coming here for over 20 years. It is always good food. We enjoy the drive from Calgary to Bragg Creek--it is usually a peaceful drive. We need more German restaurants like this in Calgary, but I'm always happy to take the drive out to Bragg Creek.
Very quick service for the entrees, it took a little longer for the desserts. I had to ask for the bill twice.
Wiener Schnitzel is my favorite. My wife likes the Beef Rouladen.
Great food and service. Very accommodating of one guest with gluten allergy.
Highly recommend if you are looking for a great place to eat in Bragg Creek.
As always excellent German Beer and Schnitzel - Good Value for money and Excellent Food.
Recommended for Families and Couples.
Excellent! Gourmet comfort food. Wonderful friendly staff and delicious food!
Their alpine and Rocky Mountain cuisine is dead on. I had elk short ribs, perfectly done. Great service. The staff is well trained. They all know the menu every well.
Lovely ambiance. Very enjoyable evening. Sauerkraut was a bit salty and the red cabbage and brussel sprouts could have been softer. Everyone enjoyed the meat portion of their meals.
We are so lucky to have this amazing local restaurant. The food is always good and we love the cozy atmosphere. The staff is always a delight as well.
Great ambiance, very cozy, and excellent service! Schnitzel could be a bit crispier. The Brussel sprouts were quite good but the scallop sauce tasted more like ice cream which didn’t pair well at all. The Black Forest cake was very dry and lacked flavour.
This visit, as a group of four good friends, we enjoyed meeting up on a not too busy Thursday evening in December for dinner, experienced friendly service, enjoyed a generous plating of great food, with a good selection of wines, but limited selection of beer on offer. A peaceful place within a forest setting, away from the madding crowds of the City, where the food is never a disappointment whether you eat in the cozy dining room or the outdoor patio. Reliably offering at least one local seasonal dish second to none in quality, preparation and taste. If you love wholesome traditional meals that remind you of home but created by award winning chefs. I highly recommend this place to my best friends.
My husband and I️ were at the Bavarian Inn for our anniversary dinner last night, and we were disappointed with our experience from when we were there about a year ago. The food was okay, nothing special, it was extremely loud (though that was mainly due to one table of oblivious people) and the overall ambiance was not what we found and loved from our previous experience.
We were here last night with family and as always we had a delicious plentiful meal with good service and yummy beer, we will definitely come back again.
Best gulasch soup and schnitzel this side of Baden Baden.
Excellent quality food very authentic German cuisine. Generous portions. Service was also very good.
A wonderful German inspired menu. Since the 1980s I have taken guests and friends there to let them taste my native cuisine! Thank you, Eva Neumaier
Celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful evening. Food was great, with only 1 small concern with the pastry of the Apple Strudel.
Food was phenomenal portion size was huge loved it bring a large appetite a little on the long when it came to wait for drinks apps and main course but overall was excellent will go again
Overall a very enjoyable lunch experience. Have been before and enjoyed it. Thank you
