Delicious! Can't wait to return!!

Was very pleased with our skor and cheesecake toppings on the beaver tail. It was very well portioned, thin, and crispy. Not too greasy either. There are many options for toppings, as well as hotdogs, poutine, and gelato. We highly recommend and will return.

Very rude and unfriendly staff. We were there on Friday August 14 and ordered a Beaver Tail. It started raining so we asked for it to be packed up to take away and some napkins. The staff made a face but gave us the box and napkins. She did the same to another 2-3 clients before we left as we... More

So many different toppings to choose on your beaver tail, all super yummy! They also have fresh smoothies and frozen yoghurt to eat :)

Just writing this review, my mouth is watering! What's not to like about fried dough slathered with nutella and sprinkled with skor bars?! They're not cheap, but MAN are these things good!!!! I went only once during our family stay, but the teens visited on their free time...almost every day! LOL

Beaver tails are fried pieces of dough deep-fried, then covered with your choice of toppings. I got the simple cinnamon and sugar, but the Nutella with bananas looked fantastic. Husband had peanut butter gelato and it was quite good also.

After doing a quick search on TA, my curiosity about this place was high! What a great find! Delicious (we had no. 7 cookies and cream and number 9. Cinnamon and lemon) and really reasonable. Easily keeps a rumbly tummy at bay!

My daughter really wanted to try one of these. Can you imagine adding any toppings you want to it? Well that's the case. A kids paradise. I chose the beaver bites with gelato. YUMMY gelato with the bites in a bowl. Could be a bigger proportion of gelato for the price but it was good. Prefer to call them Beaver... More

We ate hot dogs and beaver tails at this small fast-food on the main street in Banff. You can choose whatever toppings you want on the Beaver Tail, and one can certainly be shared by two people. Great fun but quite messy!
