We had some lamb rack as a main order. It was fantastic. A little on the small portion but was served the way that we ordered it. Medium. The service was good. the place of the side of the restaurant was clean and quit. It is connected to the bar with some pool tables and a little louder.

Very surprised at cost of the drinks which were very reasonable . Very strange place this - not sure if it's because it's a ski winter resort. We didn't really warm to it!

We had the salmon and it good, but overpriced at $21 USD. Small portions, so don't go there hungry. Menu was also very limited. Food prices are high in this area, so be careful of your expectations.

Serving staff was very pleasant. Broad menu with plenty to choose from but only one vegetarian meal that I could see. Short wait for our meals to come. Meals large. My beef burger was great but my husband's snapper was disappointing. A friend who was with us had lamb rack which he said was the most tender lamb he had... More

The meals were substantial and tasty. All served with a smile by efficient waitresses. This was our fist experience of a pub dinner, and paves the way for more.

The restaurant is part of the Heartland hotel and is also a pub. The restaurant is in a annex part of the pub. It can be noisy. The food is ok, but not special. I had fish and chips but the fish was dry.

My friend and I had had a full day hiking and exploring the glaciers area and decided on grabbing a meal in Fox Glacier before returning to Franz Josef for the night. Big mistake! We each ordered a glass of wine and a lamb burger. Only to be told after we'd paid and had sat outside sipping on our wine... More

The bar gives a classic feel with a nice fire place. The staffs are nice and courteous. The happy hour price just added to the happiness. I would definitely recommend as one of the best in fox.
