The reputation of Fairmont Hotel Macdonald for its luxury accommodations is rivaled only by its reputation for fine dining. The beautiful Harvest Room restaurant serves three meals a day, including both à-la-carte and buffet breakfasts, seven days a week. The menus prominently feature local cuisine, including Alberta beef, freshwater fish, game meats, and seasonal local produce. For a true taste of the prairies, try the 100-Mile entrées, created entirely with local ingredients. Vegan, gluten-free, diabetic, and macrobiotic options are available for those with specialized diets.
Sunday brunch has long been a culinary highlight of Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. Served buffet style in the ornate Empire Ballroom — a municipal heritage site — the meal starts with sparkling wine and orange juice and includes crepe-, omelet-, and carving stations, as well as pastries and lunch options.
The Confederation Lounge is Fairmont Hotel Macdonald’s more casual option. Featuring a menu packed with sharing options and upscale pub-style fare, the lounge is a great spot for a lunch or late-night snack. In the summers, the lounge offers a special patio barbecue menu showcasing salads and light entrées served straight from the grill.
