Canmore and Kananaskis may be known for their breathtaking mountain views, but 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.
There’s a reason The Drake Pub is a locals’ 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.
Grab a slice at Rocket Pie. Take in stunning mountain scenery as you enjoy Neapolitan-style pizza, baked in a state-of-the-art stone-fired oven, and paired with local beer and ciders.
Healthy meets comfort at CanGolf, Canmore’s new 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—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, so while the market is closed for the 2021 season, don’t miss out when you plan your trip for 2022!
Quench your thirst and bask in the autumn sun on Canmore Brewing Company’s new, upsized patio. In addition to a lineup of craft beers, this Canmore staple also serves seasonal beverages and pilot brews for you to discover their brewer’s 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 your 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 paired with charcuterie created by Valbella Gourmet Foods who are conveniently located in the same area for your gourmet snack cravings. Don’t forget ice cream for dessert! Neighbouring Lovely Ice Cream offers artisanal ice cream in pints, sandwiched between cookies, or in a cup for you to enjoy.
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 the Canmore and Banff area, don’t miss out on Tapas, recently rebranded under the new moniker 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.
