“Fall” for Comfort Food in Canmore and Kananaskis

  • Dining and Nightlife
  • Tourism Canmore Kananaskis - October 6, 2021

Canmore and Kananaskis are known for their breathtaking mountain views and rugged, unfiltered terrain. After you break a sweat exploring trails and marvelling at the golden Larch trees, you’ll be ready to fill your belly with the curated delicacies that the region offers. Here are three exceptional dining styles the Bow Valley serves up with expertise.

Casual eats for everyone

There’s a reason The Drake Pub is a local favourite! Located on Main Street in Canmore, the pub delivers quality, family-friendly, casual fare. Hit the dance floor with live entertainment every week, or play a round of post-meal pool or darts. The patio boasts panoramic views to enjoy with a complete cocktail menu.

Find the ultimate comfort foods at CanGOLF, Canmore’s virtual golf experience. The Clubhouse features pub-inspired delights sure to satisfy a wide range of dietary needs. After your meal, tee off with simulator games, putting games, and more.

We understand if you need to dine and dash — back to the mountains, that is. Stop by the Canmore Mountain Market to shop your favourite on-the-go snacks before you hit your next hike. Vendors are open from May until the beginning of October!

Brews and spirits to unwind

Quench your thirst and bask in the autumn sun on Canmore Brewing Company’s upsized patio. In addition to a lineup of craft beers, this Canmore staple also serves seasonal beverages and pilot brews for you to discover the latest small-batch creations. For the adventurous, don’t miss out on the brewery’s beer cocktails, which pair perfectly with pizza or snacks curated for the tasting room.

For handcrafted beer and soda, take an interactive tour with Grizzly Paw Brewing Company. Expansive mountain views offer a breathtaking perspective from the restaurant or patio while you dine over Alberta beef, oven-fired flatbreads, seasonal salads, and other favourite pub classics.

Curious about the distilling process? Join Wild Life Distillery for a tour, followed by a flight tasting. Their beverage-centric menu features expertly crafted cocktails that will tantalize your taste buds. Don’t forget ice cream for dessert! For dessert, Lovely Ice Cream offers artisanal ice cream in pints, sandwiched between cookies, or in a cup for you to enjoy.

Fine dining experiences

For an elevated dining experience, take a seat at Rustica Steakhouse. Each mouth-watering 100% Canadian Prime steak is served with housemade steak seasoning and grilled to perfection. Their menu features traditional to exotic flavours that will satisfy any craving.

Consistently voted one of the most romantic restaurants in Canmore, don’t miss out on Sauvage. Tucked away off Main Street in downtown Canmore, their offerings consist of an inspired chef’s tasting menu, a la carte options, and perfectly paired wine, cocktails, and beer.
