“Good food and service in a dining room with an incredible view” 13 June 2015 We ordered salad starters and ingredients were crisp and fresh. My friend ordered steak which was served with steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes. The plate was attractively presented and the food was tasty. I had the Teriyaki Salmon which was well presented and delicious. Oriental stir fry vegetables were excellent. Deserts of Saskatoon pie and icecream were enjoyable and not overly sweet. Table service was attentive but not intrusive. All in all the Chophouse has a well managed kitchen and is a well managed dining establishment.

Good food and a lovely setting 30 May 2015 Attached to the Bayshore Inn and Spa hotel (residents get 10% discount on food!) the Chophouse is the main restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served. The breakfasts have been excellent . Freshly prepared and very tasty. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is an outside seating area too so on a hot day you can eat in the fresh air and enjoy the fabulous views over the lake. The restaurant has large windows overlooking the lake so even if you are seated inside then you can still enjoy the views. It's a casual dress restaurant but if you want to dress smartly then you won't feel out of place.

Wonderful experience 29 May 2015 I had the Braised Short Ribs and it was one of the best meals I've ever had! The ambiance at this restaurant is great, but best of all is the view. Nothing beats dining right beside the lake!

“What a view!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2015 A very well organized eating house. A lovely welcome from the hostess and very attentive service from the staff. Chantal was an excellent waitress. The menu choice was good and my strange eating choice was very well catered for. I would recommend this restaurant. Oh! And looking over Waterton Lake whilst eating is rather good!

9/23 & 24, lunch and dinner, with cordials each night were a delight! Can't expound enough to adequately compliment the Chef. Subtle flavors throughout each item was splendid. Thank you, D&P....Kalispell
