We spent an AMAZING week road tripping around Calgary, Canada.. making sure to stop in Jasper, Banff, Calgary and neighboring small towns. I love exploring restaurants and good food options. Usually when traveling with family I try to be mindful of budget but for this trip we threw the budget out and just went for broke and I’m glad to say these food options didn’t disappoint.
First up was Fiddle River… located in the town square of Jasper, the restaurant not only offered a great menu but equally beautiful backdrop overlooking the snow capped mountains and old steam engine train. The service was impeccable, drinks on point and food portions adequately sufficient.

The KEG Steakhouse – Banff, Alberta
Set in middle of Banff, this restaurant set center stage. We arrived during happy hour ( always a treat) to amazing mixed drinks and moderately priced food options. The atmosphere is kinda whatever you want it to be. We sat around the bar and enjoyed friendly conversations with locals and tourists. A great value for the money.. mark this place on your list when you’re visiting the Banff Area.
Carvers Steakhouse – Calgary, Alberta
Conveniently located in the Sheraton Cavalier hotel this food option was a no brainer, convenient and an absolute great dining experience. I usually stay away from hotel restaurants but the prix fixe menu was perfect and the price was right!
Table Food & Drink – Canmore, Alberta
Honorable mention goes to this restaurant.. we actually ate there twice but clearly I was too busy gnawing down on food I completely forgot to take food & drink pics so I captured these from their social media. The Happy Hour food was so good we went back the next morning on our last day of exploration to catch the breakfast which was priced right for a family of 4. It’s important to note that dining in the Alberta, Canmore, Banff area is NOT always “budget friendly so when you find a place that checks the marks on flavor, options, experience, service and price.. you can’t help but circle back which is exactly what we did!
