I miss their food already. Pizza is reaaally good, unique style and good combination. I just hope you'll extend your awesome pizza over here at Vancouver. I'll definitely go to this place again when in Banff.

We were lucky to be in banff on one of the nicest days of the year! We scored a fantastic table on the patio with lots of shade. The menu is divine! The combinations of flavors for the pizza toppings are inventive and a treat for the palate! The salads are huge, tasty and filling. My girls ordered the Mac... More

This place is a little hidden gem just off the main banff ave, ordered the deep dish pizza and pork belly Mac and cheese and they were both wonderful. They tasted great and would definitely recommend this place to others

We wanted a light meal and decided to try The Bear Street Tavern. I had a pizza with fresh tomatoes and cheese. Our server suggested that I mix some chili oil and honey on a side plate and dip the pizza slice in this mixture. It may sound strange but it was yummy....worth a try.

Strolling round Banff on a sunny day we were struck by the outdoors dining area and the menu. We weren't disappointed and both had very pleasant and reasonable sandwiches and drinks. Only real problem was that it got too sunny and the staff were very slow to deploy umbrellas outside! When we came back to Banff a few days later... More

My hubby and I stopped here after looking in TripAdvisor and seeing the good reviews. We were not disappointed! I had the Donair pizza and my hubby had the Hawaiian pizza. I typically hate Hawaiian pizza but loved theirs since it had fresh pineapple as opposed to canned and was topped with pulled pork vs ham. It was truly amazing!... More

This place was suggested by one of the local retail clerks and thank you. Great service pizza was excellent. Asked about the beers and samples brought to the table. Went with an IPA and was not disappointed. Patio looked like fun but we were hot. Worth checking out

Despite the name, it is family friendly. They had great specials on. Wife and I shared a pizza and salad. Pizza was top notch. Salad was just ok. Amazing sauce on their pizza! I gave it a 4 because we had to wait for our food (45 mins). Service was friendly.

Popped into this place on a trip advisor recommendation , definitely a great place for lunch! They have an impressive beer list, and the server said they are trying to get one beer from every Canadian province and territory. Pizza was pretty good too! Go for the more unique ones as the margarita was average. Highly recommended!
