Emerald Lake Lodge

Dining in Emerald Lake

Farm to Table

Our Philosophy

CRMR 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.

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.
