The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the beer was excellent and the view from the balcony can't be beat! What else could you want?!

We dropped in here for a drink one evening before our meal that we had booked elsewhere. We love trying different beers and these were no disappointment. Such a great range to choose from and they tasted amazing. We saw someone eating nachos and wish we had eaten their, but we had a booking somewhere else. A great place and... More

They do not have a huge selection of home brewed beers, but everyone I tried was delicious. They are located on the second floor and have a terrific narrow balcony where you can sit facing down at the street. Great people watching. The service was quick and friendly and the food (great selection) was oustanding. We went back a second... More

We went after a great family day in Banff - took the gondola up for world class views of the Rockies then soaked for hours in the hot springs. 2 adults and 3 boys - 6, 8 and 11 - all hungry after so much fresh air! The atmosphere was great - we had a huge, squishy booth that we... More

Sitting outside on the balcony is lovely and the views of Banff are great, however our burgers were very average and the service was awful. Rude waitress mentioned a few times in the reviews made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. The hospitality industry is not for this girl- everything was an effort and she just didn't care. Head somewhere where... More

Was looking forward to this. We love trying local beer all over the world. Unfortunately they were out of two beers I wanted to try. I had the cream ale and it was pretty average. Not real tasty. The food was ok. The real problem was the service. As listed in other reviews on here, the young woman just walked... More

Great place to eat. Food portions were substantial. I enjoyed the in house brewed beers - especially the "Head Smashed In" IPA - really good. Get a seat on the balcony if you can - fantastic views.

Really enjoyed the craft beers on our trip and the wonderfully named Head Smashed IPA here was a treat. Superb welcome, great atmosphere, all ages. Excellent food too.

Great beer, great service, lovely staff. Enjoyed the food, especially the fries, though the lobster rolls were great. View from the balcony is fantastic. Worth a visit.
