The Elk Loin Steak seems to be served on... More

Title certainly not meant to be negative, but if you want upscale meals at upscale prices while in Yellowknife, this appears to be the place. The dinner menu looked fantastic, especially if you were doing a "special night out ". We dropped in for the breakfast buffet, decent selection and the pricing was ok.

Big windows with views of the forest. Staff is attentive and helpful. Daily breakfast menu is very good. I was expecting more for the Sunday brunch -- it was good but not a lot better than the daily breakfast offerings.

The explore hotel is lovely and their restaurant I was worth a visit. Tried the elk loin which was very good. Everyone was happy with their meals. Its fairly pricey but not unexpectedly so.

Must try the elk loin and the venison, both on the menu. We were not disappointed in the least. The sunday brunch stands up to their claims!

Traders Grill is located in Explorer Hotel. We were a family of 3 and had dinner at Traders Grill since we were staying at the hotel. We ordered 2 meat entrees and a pasta dish that was the featured dinner special that night. The bison steak with sausage and elk steak were delicious but the pasta dish was a big... More
