We ate here a couple times during our week-long stay at the Inns of Banff. Both times we found the food delicious, the beer cold, and the service friendly. They were very busy both evenings, but we got our food and beverages in a reasonable time frame.

Great food! Salads are great! Their own soft drinks are not that good. Great atmosphere. Ate outside on the patio.

Really good vegetarian burgers. Their home made pops were great. Ideal location too. The service could be improved.
