The restaurant was great! The breakfast was yummy and the staff very nice. The motel room was small and with no blackout drapes and broken Venetian blinds it made for a very early rise. It was clean and comfortable but thought it could be cheaper.

We haven't eaten here for years. The Frontier used to be the best place to eat in Revelstoke but fell on some hard times in the past. I am happy to say that the Frontier has made a comeback! My wife really enjoyed her food - she had the schnitzel burger with fries and salad. The portions were generous. The... More

As what the title says, you need to see/try it first before you judge something out, like this place. We were running out of options as to where to go for brunch as Main Street Cafe was closed this time, and the other bake shops weren't too appealing for my finicky taste boyfriend... and Denny's and McDonald's were only just...

Say what you want about the motel, but the restaurant is top notch! Seriously, don't let it's appearance fool you, inside is a friendly and welcoming staff and a sweet western aesthetic that just works. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive, her sunny disposition making it difficult not to smile. The food came out in huge portions for a... More

Family of four stopped in for dinner. Ordered Roast beef and it was very good with generous portions. My son had the chicken strips off the kids menu. Again generous portions. The wait staff were quick and very responsive. Very reasonably priced.

The hotel could be nice if the owner would keep it well, but it is abandoned. The structure remeber an old western saloon. The rooms are not so clean.

I've been going to the Frontier for 10 years. The owner, Matt, works incredibly hard to bring quality food to his patrons with huge portions. You never leave hungry! He runs two major buffets on Friday and Sundays (Mexican and Indian) which no one else can match in Revelstoke. He also does charity work for the community running 'Orphan Dinners'... More

I got the worst service I have ever received from a restaurant ever. The bathroom ran out of toilet paper so I was told to use the gas station's bathroom. We had to wait forever for my son to get his drink he ordered. Then when we asked for some ketchup they almost threw the bottle at us. The food... More

I've eaten here since I was little (about 30 years)everytime we drive thru revelstoke. They used to have amazing food and French onion soup. When we walked in another customer told us to seat ourselves. About 5 min later a waiter or homeless person came and threw menus at us followed by cutlery. He looked utterly pissed off that we...
