Tekarra Restaurant

Recommend To Friends

Tekarra Resort, Hwy 93A, 1 km S of town
780.852.4624
  • Overview
  • Prices
  • Hours

For over 60 years, Tekarra Restaurant has pleased locals, visitors and celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and John Travolta. The culinary team delivers regional Canadian specialties with interesting twists and upscale presentations. The focus is on quality comfort food from fresh, local ingredients like Alberta bison, wild boar, free range chicken and Arctic char. Appetizers like baked brie and the charcuterie platter are great for sharing. Functions are accommodated.

Atmosphere

This unpretentious cabin in the woods is surrounded by towering pines, and its intimate patio provides mountain views. An outside path leads to the scenic Athabasca River. While dining, use crayons to draw on the paper tablecloths; it’s a Tekarra tradition!
