Jasper Pizza Place Restaurant Review

I had a chance to eat at Jasper Pizza Place in Jasper National Park 2 times during my last visit to the park.

So, alas, it is time to do a review of Jasper Pizza Place.

Review summary:  If you are looking for a casual meal in Jasper National Park or have a hankering for a good pizza, Jasper Pizza Place is a convenient restaurant with lots of choices to meet the needs of everyone.

Jasper Pizza is located at 402 Connaught Drive, the main road through Jasper townsite in the middle of Jasper National Park. It was a short walk from our hotel in Jasper National Park townsite.

It is a clean looking facility with enough menu choices to keep just about anyone happy.  Of course, Jasper Pizza Place offers pizzas with typical pizza toppings: cheese, pepperoni, ham, onions, bacon, mushrooms, bar-b-q chicken, vegetarian, and more.

We had pizza during both visits to the restaurant.

Below is a picture of the Jasper Pizza Place Special we ordered – minus a slice because someone couldn’t wait for me to take a picture.  The Jasper Pizza Place Special has ham, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, peppers and pineapple.

Now here’s the close-up picture of the Jasper Pizza Place Special that will make you salivate (I am salivating right now).

A thick crust and dense toppings, it was a delicious pizza.  My only gripe is minor.  The size of the pizzas seemed a little on the small side compared to what I’m used to – or maybe I was just extra hungry from hiking the day before.  Medium is 10″ and large is 12″.  Then again, the crust was thick and the toppings dense.

Still, I recommend a large for 2 hungry people.  The medium might not be enough – unless you want to leave room for a dessert at the Bear’s Paw Bakery or Other Paw Bakery down the street.

On another day, this pepperoni and mushroom pizza made for an enjoyable meal too.

For something different, go after 4pm

If you go after 4 pm, the pizza menu expands a little.  After 4pm, the wood burning stove is running and some more daring pizzas become available.

Some of the more interesting pizzas:

  • The Robson is a pizza with smoked salmon, capers and onions on top.
  • The Cavell has blue cheese, sour cream and black olives.
  • The Fryatt has chicken, corn and red peppers on it.
  • The Whistler pizza is a bad breath causing concoction to avoid when on a date.  It has garlic tomato sauce, onions, anchovies and tomatoes.

Beyond pizza

Jasper Pizza Place has a complete restaurant menu beyond pizza.

Appetizer choices include salt and pepper calamari, wings, pita with dip, Mediterranean bread and other selections.  Salads include a Jasper Pizza house salad, Caesar salad, Greek salad, spinach salad and others.

There are pasta dishes like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken penne Alfredo and lasagna.

Jasper Pizza also has a good selection of burgers and wraps.  The bacon mushroom cheeseburger features Alberta beef on a sesame bun.  The Happy Burger is topped with ham, cheese, relish, mustard, pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion and coleslaw. :)  A vegetarian burger and many other choices are available.

For full entrees, Jasper Pizza has New York steak, chicken Parmesan, Philly cheese steak, souvlaki, ribs and more.

The menu also includes rice and noodle bowls like Pork Ton Po, Chicken Nuk Su Kow and “The Buddha Bowl” (fried tofu on stir-fry noodles with teriyaki sauce).

Bonus Tips

In Jasper Pizza Place’s downstairs is a billiards area.  Stop by for a game during rainy weather in Jasper National Park.

Jasper Pizza has 2 outdoor dining areas, one a second floor patio and the other a handful of tables on the sidewalk by the entrance doors.  Either outdoor seating area is a unique viewing point and a way to eat in the great outdoors.

Also, if you can tolerate eating during off-hours instead of prime time, either an early or late lunch or dinner, you obviously run less of a risk of the restaurant being crowded.

There you have it, a review of Jasper Pizza Place in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada.

Give peace pizza a chance.

  • The pizzas are very tempting! This place deserves a visit soon.

  • I’ve actually eaten at this restaurant. The pizza is pretty good, maybe not the best I’ve ever had, but definitely good enough to recommend to friends and family.

  • Ben

    Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. But if you hungry for the cost order not the chicken souvlaki or fish & chips unless your a 120 lb female very good but very small portions. Tonight we are sticking to the pizza & pasta way better bang for your buck.

  • The good thing about a smaller portion is that it’s an excuse for dessert. :)
