Melissa's Missteak was opened by the Borden family in 1978, in the building which was then part of the Homestead Inn.

It quickly became the best steak house in Banff. Locals and visitors alike filled the dining room, feasting on the wide selection of top-of-the-line Alberta beef and signature salads

In 1990, the Bordens sold the restaurant to a group of long-term employees. A patio was constructed - and then opened in 1991. In Summer 2010 it was resold to a local group and in late 2020 Melissa's had to relocate due to unforseen circumstances. Now settled in our he newly renovated home on the second and third floor of Town Centre Mall at 201 Banff Ave, Melissa's can now add Live music and entertainment to the menu.

"Mel's" offers a quality dining experience and superior customer service. We are open for breakfast daily from 7:00am and serve breakfast items on the lunch menu until 4:00pm. Dinner service begins at 4:00pm and ends at 10pm with our Sports Bar and main Bar open until 2am. Kids are welcome until 9pm and can enjoy our kids menu and new arcade.

Melissa’s Family Restaurant is still locally owned and operated, and continues to offer quality dining with a wide-ranging selection of items that are sure to appeal to all budgets and tastes. With room to seat over 200 people, Melissa’s can easily accommodate group and special events including a private 3rd floor venue that seats up to 30 people, great for small weddings, private parties or corporate meetings.
