We hadn't been here for 3 years, so we were really looking forward to returning, and all had a great experience! Tried the Family Style menu option for the first time, and added the Meatloaf as well. All food was very tasty (as usual), service was very good, pretty much all good. One in our party ordered the can of Blueberry beer, but was disappointed that it also had vanilla in it (not listed in the menu) and didn't enjoy it, but very much liked the Rutting Elk draft.

The only “con” was it was very loud mostly due to a large table that was “very enthusiastic “ and a gentleman was talking very loud using some colourful language. Meal was fabulous! Fish cakes amazing!!! Meatloaf with goat cheese and mushrooms, makes me drool just thinking about it!!! Left stuffed!!! Will definitely be back!

Yummy dinner after driving up from Lake Louise. Portions were good and flavors were lovely. I definitely recommend reservations - we were seated immediately, but those without did have to wait.

Made reservations for 1800. Escorted to 2-person table in the corner despite restaurant being empty. Appetizer Brie cheese with pear purée and baguette stupendous. Salmon well cooked. Dessert maple glaze/apple with vanilla ice cream minuscule

Hi Kathy, thanks for the feedback. Our Beautiful Brie is a big hit, so glad you enjoyed it. All of our desserts are served in 125ml mason jars for 4.99. You can also order all three desserts for 12.99

Good food and service e was friendly.

Sparse environment and maybe a bit pricey for the food offered.

That said, they did try hard and I would recommend it again...not the 1st choice perhaps but a very strong second and better cost point than most places in Jasper.

The food was "wicked" and the wine was even better! This is our second time at Evil Dave's, we went back based on our first experience in 2015. We were not disappointed. Highly recommend to anyone who loves good good food and excellent wine.
A little loud at first, as very busy, but once the crowd died down it was great. Note, one of us has tinutis, so dislike loud places as hard to hear, but it worked out!

Enjoyed the flat bread with dip, seared tuna salad, and bison meatloaf. Everything was flavoured right with decent portions. Service was friendly and attentive, and ambiance wasn't too noisy as tables were well spaced out.

We have never been to Jasper before but, with 5 of us in the group, thought we should probably reserve a table. We googled rather on spec, and Evil Dave’s looked different. We are so glad we went there! Fantastic food - fresh, different, sort of Asian fusion, with informed, superb service and all wrapped up in a great little restaurant. The nest meal we have had in the Rockies!

Thanks for returning to dine with us. Our best selling main course is bison and wild boar meatloaf with mashed potatoes, gravy, and seasonal vegetables. We suggest guests share appetizers as they can be quite filling.
