Great Dinner
August 07, 2014

The food and selection of wines at the Bavarian Inn are always topnotch. The service on this night wasn't great and that was a bit of an anomaly for us as it is typically very good as well. If you are looking for a very good dinner in a woodsy setting, choose the Bavarian Inn. It is well worth the commute from Calgary.

Our adult God Daughter enjoyed her first taste of Bavarian dining on your patio for her birthday lunch. She was charmed by the menu and south German presentation of excellent Alberta produce, accompanied by the attentions of Chinese/Mexican waiter Hugo.

We loved the set menus, one from Hungary and the other from Switzerland suggested that day. Nice selection of german dishes. Decoration slightly outdated. Service efficient. Quiet ambiance.

I have always enjoyed the food at this restaurant. This was my first visit under new ownership, I was quite excited seeing the resume of the new chef, this was going to be like Germany! The white asparagus soup was delicious but clumpy, which is unusual if it is thickened with cream and not corn starch?... The traditonal lentel soup with sausage was brothy and not at all thick and creamy as... more

My husband and I went to the Bavarian Inn to celebrate our anniversary and had just a fantastic meal there. We shared the 'Alpine Teller' which was very yummy, I had the Pacific Coast Salmon and my husband had the Lamb Sirloin. The meals were perfectly cooked, the presentation was wonderful. For dessert I had the 'Hot Spiced Rasperberries' and... more

Best German / Austrian food outside of Germany / Austria
March 16, 2013

We drive by this restaurant frequently on the way through Bragg Creek and finally decided to stop in. Hands down, best German / Austrian food I have ever had in Canada. I had the Maultaschen for an appetizer and wish I had just ordered 3 plates of those alone. I soaked up the juice with the bread, which I would... more

We took advantage of a Travel Zoo vouchure for a nice dinner out and judging by the others in the restaurant, so was everyone else. We had no complaints as the restaurant seemed busy, which gave a good feel, and the 3-course meal was fabulous. We had a small variety of items to choose from and everything seemed tempting.

Seat benches (table boothes) are very uncomfortable. The back is to straight.
A bit more padding on the back would fix it.

Misrepresentation
February 10, 2013

I dined at Bavarian Inn last weekend with my family. I ordered the 'Pate-crusted sirloin steak'. When it came, it did not have the pate crusted on it, or anywhere on the plate. When I asked about it, the server said that many diners did not like the pate, so they left it off! You would think that they would mention it when I ordered it! I think the Pate would be an important part of the dish.... more

January 31, 2013

I went to the Bavarian recently for a company dinner. There were eight of us around a nice sized table in the middle of the dining room. It was so difficult to decide what to get from the menu. If you like game meats there is a decent variety. I ordered a beer, and though I didn't know what I was getting (they carry German beers) it was very tasty. I had a seafood starter that was good. I went... more

We just had a fantastic meal at the Bavarian Inn. We had purchased a 3 course meal from Travelzoo and the food was excellent!

Good value even without a deal from Travelzoo but even... more

Butter was stale
December 01, 2012

The butter served with your bread was not fresh. It's been left uncovered in the fridge for too long or is simply too old. The food served was luke warm, but they rectified it with apologies. In general, food and service is good and I would go back there any time.

Worst place in the world
August 04, 2012

One of the worst places I ever ate at. Food is over price and sucks I went with a group of 9 and 3 of the dishes had hair in them, terrible service and after all of that they made me pay an 18 percent tip because I had more than 8 people. WORST PLACE IN THE WORLD!!!!!!! SUCKS SUCK SUCKS

Well it was worth the wait! After years of driving out to Bragg Creek and seeing this restaurant nestled back in the trees, we took the plunge and what a delight! The food was amazing, the service friendly and the atmosphere warm and inviting. I had wiener snitzel (nope not a wiener) it was veal with a crispy light coating and I ordered the mushroom sauce, what a nice combo. Each of us had a... more

New Ownership
February 27, 2012

Went for lunch, each of us had (split) the dumplings with gobs of carmelised onions and the schnitzel sandwich on rye. Fabulous, simply. Perhaps the lightest crispiest veal schnitzel we've ever had. Comes with salad or soup. Great fresh greens salad (NOT from a pre-mix) with excellent vinagrette, and potato soup, creamy texture but not from the cream. Very friendly attentive service, also the... more

January 23, 2011

Went there with my husband and another couple for New Year's. The menu didn't strike me as strictly Bavarian (I'm no expert though... I know of the usual schitzel, spaetzel, beer, sausages, sauerkraut, beer, black forest cake, beer... anyway). Still, the menu was impressive enough to lure us.I was an awesome appetizer of roasted butternut squash ravioli topped with a half lobster tail and root... more

Never again.
January 04, 2011

The reception was very efficient and friendly, however we were seated on shaky chairs, the meal was served lukewarm on barely heated plates. The 0.4 l beerglasses were only filled below the marking ,the vegetable( aspargus) was "woody" and therefore unmdigestable. The fish dsh had a strong "fishy " taste. The hostess reacted very indiffenrently ( "i shall tell them!") to my complaint.

I thought I would write a review to tell of the lovely dinner experience myself and my family had at The Bavarian Inn Restaurant. We chose the jaegerschnitzel (veal in a mushroomy sauce) and weiner schnitzel and these were very much enjoyed. Clean plates all round! It was lovely to have our meal out on the patio, enjoying a bottle of wine, with our servers making sure we were well looked after.... more

If you like food with flavour go elsewhere - who serves boiled potatoes in a bowl??? Sorry but not a fan and this is a relatively pricey place. $28 - $38 for entree. Nice atmosphere but NO flavour and even the ol British parents agreed!!. Great service though.

The drive and location alone make coming to this restaurant worthwhile and the food just takes it over the top. We like to take the dogs for a walk along the river prior to dinner. Every meal here has been scrumptious. My favourite is the elk with blueberries and my husband loves the soup. I always look forward the the specials menu as it's created with a central, in season, theme. Every meal... more

From west Calgary we make the trip about every 6 weeks. Maybe 20 minutes. We are consistently surprised with the variety & quality of flavors on the menu. Our favorites are the sausage trio, venison tenderloin medallions, bavarian dumplings, and bavarian salad.
