The Rimrock

  • Steak



(June 6, 1924, eight years after prohibition, the ‘new’ Alberta Liquor Control Board issued License No. 1 to the Palliser Hotel, making it the first licensed hotel in Alberta.) 

Inspired by yesterday’s Palliser Hotel and the authenticity of the 1920s, the Rimrock Dining room invites you back to try Fairmont’s authentic luxury cuisine with the taste and feel reminiscent of the mad men-era, and the ‘golden-era of travel.’ The Rimrock is open for service Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings in the historic room revived with prohibition-themed décor. Enjoy the hand-tooled leather pillars and famous heritage fireplace. From the Palliser Honey and Bourbon-glazed House-smoked Brisket to the Truffle mac n’ Cheese with Lobster or the challenge of you and your date to devour the tender and flavourful 48-oz Tomahawk steak, you will return to the true age of decadence and glamour. The finale, the house-made desserts with a modern twist; Carrot Cake Verrine, Banana Cream Pie and Saskatoon Berry Crumble fashioned in mason jars with lids make them perfect ‘to go’ delicacies to the Campfire S’more Trio for Two.

Add big-band swing jazz music and a Palliser 100 cocktail from the signature collection of hand-crafted creations to select beer, whiskey or bourbon, you’re off to an unforgettable dining escape.
