Family Dining at the Caribou Grill
Patricia and Rudi Thoni had this beautiful genuine log building built in 1998 and officially opened for business in the following year. The interior is absolutely amazing and tastefully decorated, representing a back country theme. The walls are beautifully decorated with wildlife mounts, native artifacts, leather art and comfortable seating to match the décor.
One can’t help but keep looking around at the beautiful displays and art on the walls surrounding the interior. It’s easy to tell that a great deal of labor of love has been put into this business and building throughout the years!
The Menu at the Caribou Grill
The menu offers a wide variety of selections to choose from that even the fussiest of eater will enjoy. From choice Prime Rib, Seafood selections and Pasta dishes, it’s hard to decide what to order. There’s even a kids menu and a detailed list of fine wine’s to choose from.
All meals are served with a basket of freshly baked mouth – watering Cheese Bread!
Below, is a look at what our meal was like and just what you can expect when dining at this fine restaurant. For my wife and me, we both decided on the daily specials that offer something unique and too tempting to refuse.
We both selected the fresh seafood chowder which was simply out of this world! A great starter with the delicious hot cheese bread! For the two of us, we could have easily made a meal of this beautiful chowder and bread!
The Minute Steak
I chose the Minute Steak Special of the Day served with peppercorn sauce along with mashed potatoes and the daily vegetable. A tender generous portion of steak served to perfection that turned out to be an excellent choice!
My wife made the wise decision to select the second daily special on the list, that of the Beef Stew. This dish was also served with mashed potatoes and broccoli. A generous portion of tender junks of beef in a delicious gravy stew.
Caribou Coupe Signature Dessert
Although completely satisfied with the main meal, we simply had to try the restaurants signature dessert, the Caribou Coupe. One look at the photo above and you can tell why this dessert is so popular. Absolutely delicious with generous portions of brownie, ice cream, whipped cream and more!
Not a dessert you want to be thinking of the calorie intake but definitely worth saving room at the end for and treating yourself to.
The Caribou Grill is definitely Valemount’s hidden gem and a restaurant that you simply cannot overlook when traveling through this area. It’s no surprise that they have received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award and even had a few surprise celebrities drop in for a meal from time to time.
Below, I have listed the restaurants official website for your convenience, where you can access much more detailed information including a detailed menu, wine list, directions and much more!
