Our Spring Menu is in Full Bloom at The Lake House

After what seems like an eternal winter, spring is finally beginning to blossom in Calgary. Overlooking Lake Bonavista, we are seeing signs of the big melt, and are already looking forward to the longer summer days, and having our guests enjoy bites and sips on our outdoor patio. With the warmer weather, we have also welcomed some new dishes to the menu. Both lunch and dinner offerings have been refreshed and are bursting with new flavors and ingredients while maintaining the classic, Rocky Mountain cuisine that The Lake House is so fondly known for in Calgary.

What’s New on the Lunch Menu?


There are some tasty new additions to the lunch appetizer menu, including the Wild Mushroom Lasagna that has layers of fresh pasta and mushrooms, complemented by confit tomatoes, kale crisp and manchego cream. This delightful dish will satisfy a light appetite or have you anticipating a main if you’re feeling extra hungry around the noon hour.

On the greener side, we have also introduced a Romaine Salad with lettuce, pickled onions, roasted garlic, cured egg yolk and chorizo sourdough crumb, all finished with a delicious lemon dressing. Light yet satisfying and bursting with fresh flavors.

The dinner appetizer menu is made complete with a Slow Roasted Elk Short Rib platter. Our locally raised CRMR Ranch Elk ribs are coated in a sweet blackberry glaze, decorated with sesame seeds, fried polenta, pea shoots and scallions – this dish is guaranteed to be finger licking good! If you missed the Romain Salad and Mushroom Lasagna for lunch, they have also been added to the dinner appetizer menu!

The Bison Striploin dish offers sweet fruity, flavors balanced by the savory cuts of bold, medium rare bison steak. Embellished with lobster and Pea Rice Pilaf, this dish will have spring ingredients singing in every bite. The Chicken Ballotine is a classic dish served with golden raisin and curried chickpeas, carrot puree, fennel slaw and a generous wedge of fried halloumi cheese.
