Banff - restaurant reccs, please

I need your help again.

We have three dinners in Banff, in early June. We arrive mid-evening and are staying at the Banff Park Lodge. For simple convenience after a long day’s travel (on the Rocky Mountaineer), we’ll probably eat at the Crave Mountain Grill, at the hotel.

So, two more dinners. One needs to be a really excellent steak - I can’t go to that part of the world and not have steak at least one night. My shortlist of places near to the hotel which look OK,is:

Bison (like the farm to table committment)
Melissa’s (currently closed for a refurbishment but due to be open when we’re there)
Grizzly House (it’s decades since I had a fondue)
Maple Leaf
Keg Steakhouse

Any thoughts on these? Am I missing the town’s “great little place”?

On our last day, we’ll have to check out of the hotel mid-morning but are not being collected for our transfer to Calgary airport until mid-afternoon. The thought of a relaxed long lunch appeals.
