Our Rocky Mountain Cuisine Dining Philosophy

It was in the kitchens of Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff, Deer Lodge in Lake Louise, and Emerald Lake Lodge in Yoho National Park that “Rocky Mountain Cuisine” was created.

This dining style is the artful assemblage of Canadian ingredients such as game meats, sustainable seafood, prairie-grown grains and locally sourced vegetables. Each of the restaurants owned and operated by Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts offer a unique experience, but are unified in the promise of a sublime dining experience complete with excellent service, and carefully chosen boutique wines.

Today we are proud to source game meat from our own ranch on 540 acres located in the rolling foothills of Calgary. The Canadian Rocky Mountain Ranch provides all of the CRMR Properties and Restaurants with high quality Elk and Bison products, raised in a natural, humane and sustainable manner without added hormones or antibiotics. We take incredible pride in our efforts of providing our guests with the very best that Canadian cuisine has to offer, and the ultimate farm-to-table experience that has become a popular dining trend around the world, especially here at home.
