Watch out for the caesar salad!

It is double peppered so be aware of that before ordering. Otherwise the food was great and our servers were fantastic which is saying something as it was our server's last day. (we came at the end of the season.)

Nice atmosphere but wish they had the fireplace going. Lodge bar feel with live a caustics folky music. Very nice place to sit and relax on a Friday evening.

Only one server/bartender on staff. Three tables of hockey teams in the pub this night. It did take a long time to be served.

The food was great but really slow coming from the shared kitchen. When we talked to "Ron" the manager all he could manage to do is make excuses when all it would have took was an apology and tell us he would take if it. Rather than deal with our issues he kept ketting the young waitress deal with us... More

We stayed at the Inns of Banff in February. In the basement of this hotel is the Bear's Den Pub. It was a cute little pub, decorated nicely to fit an outdoorsman type theme. We went down on the first night (a Thursday) and it was pretty quiet. We had a couple drinks and played some pool. On the Friday... More

A lovely, cosy bar under the Inns of Banff. The staff are always fantastic and can not do enough to make your visit comfortable. The beer selection is very good and the food menu is enough to please everyone. It has a nice family atmosphere and a great place to socialize or catch the game. Also has a great jukebox... More

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.
