It's nice to have a local, affordable pub in resort towns like Banff, and Bear Street Tavern was fun, casual, fast, and the food and beer were first-class. We loved the Wheeler Hut pizza with wild forest mushrooms, pine nuts, mozzarella, truffle oil, pesto, pizza sauce. It truly lived up to its "ridiculously good" promise. And the salads were fresh....

Stopped in here right upon arriving in town after seeing great reviews on Yelp. It was EXCELLENT! The bartender, Matt, was super friendly and helpful, and went out of his way to suggest food and beers that he thought we should try. The two pizzas we had (yep, we went back for more!) were the Big Bird and the Godfather... More

The front counter hostess at the Fox In and Suites recommend that I give this place a try. I was there during the Bon Appetit festival in which 37 of the area restaurants were participating. I was looking for some comfort food and decided that the Bear Street Tavern was what I was looking for. As part of the festival,... More

My partner and I loved the pizza night - $10 a pizza. We ordered one each; both were yummy. We also had a beer each as they were $4 each, also both very tasty. Service was excellent, atmosphere great and it was very busy - always a good sign!

The restaurant was busy so there was a woman at the front taking names for the waiting list. She asked my friends name and she replied but she mustn't have been listening because she asked again. As my friend was repeating herself, another waitress came up to tell the waitress we were talking to know that a table was ready.... More

We drove from Jasper to Banff on a beautiful day in September. When we got to our camp spot we thought this would be a can of soup night, but instead the young men who checked us in said, go to the Bear Street Tavern. They gave us directions and mentioned on Monday's they had a $10.00 special on their... More
