good bar with pool tables and tvs

Good basic bar to come hang out, have some appetizers, and throw back beers. Nice place, clean and cozy. Would return again.

I am a Calgary local and I travel to Banff often. I really enjoy the Inns of Banff as a reasonably priced, clean hotel and it never disappoints. However, upon my fourth trip here I decided after a long day of snowboarding with some friends to hit up the pub in the basement. This was a big mistake. The service... More

Upon check-in the front desk girl was very snippy with me when i asked a question about the room locations. Room was adequate i suppose, no exhaust fan in the bathroom and both faucets were dripping the entire time. When ten of us went to get food at lunch time at the pub in the hotel it was supposed to...

I ordered a green salad for lunch and it was 9.99. Coffee was 3.50. They have a variety of burgers but they are expensive.

Great comfy casual atmosphere with friendly staff. Food is from the same menu as Wildfire Grill. The steak sandwich cooked just right. Nachos portion was huge. There are pool tables and TV right at the bar. Nice to eat and watch highlights of Stampede on the Saturday night we visited. Currently they are only open Friday and Saturday.

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.

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.)

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
