Monday nights are $10 pizza night featuring three of their pizzas. Each pizza can serve two people, or one if he is really hungry. They also offered $9 steins of beer. That ended up being a lot of beer, more than I could drink. The pizza was very good. The restaurant was quite crowded, but they had outside seating.

We came here based on the re views and were not disappointed. They were full but promised a table in 20 minutes and we could get a drink while we waited. People coming in after us were getting longer waiting times so try to book if you can. We got our table in under 15 mins. Ordered pork belly Mac... More

We decided to have an early dinner (arrived at 1730) and already the place was packed. It was a busy place but the waitress was efficient, helpful and friendly. The smoked Bison Pizza with caramelised onions was great although the onions were barely caramelised, just cooked . The chilli oil with honey to dip your pizza was a novelty. The... More

Not only the best pizza in town, but I would say one of the best in our travel over the years. Really good thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients. Service is very good, but a little noisy and crowded for our taste.

We stopped here for lunch and were seated on the patio. The waitress made some great suggestions and we ended up with the Hawaiian pizza, made with pulled pork and fresh pineapple. It was great on its own, but add the chili oil and honey and it was amazing!

We got a few recommendations that this place had the best pizza in town. If that's true, Banff needs a new pizza place. We ordered their Caesar salad which was good. However, the pizza was only slightly better than a frozen one from the grocery store. The food and wine was expensive especially for what you got. The service was... More

We went here because of the rating on Trip Advisor. It was very busy when we arrived, but they sat us at the bar and we had our dinner there. My husband had a pizza and I had a salad and we really enjoyed our meals. The guy behind the bar was an Aussie (like us) and was very friendly... More

Home of the chilli oil/honey/pizza combo, or the first place I ever had it. Pizza is amazing, no matter what flavor you like.

Had pizza and beers here my first night in Banff. Great waitress, with great recommendations. Got the Smoked Bison pizza, which was great. All pizzas are served with honey and chili oil

We came for an early lunch on a Saturday morning. We had the pork belly mac & cheese which was not as good as expected. The chicken wings were nicely cooked, the pizza is good but not memorable.
