Always go there myself and recommend to others if they are looking for a good pizza! Cheap nights are the best!

The Bear St Tavern has a great outdoor seating area when the weather is nice, and fantastic, creative pizza and calzones! They also serve steins and have a really extensive menu of both local and imported beers. Definitely worth a visit.

This place is really cool, it has a nice environment and the service is fast, we had dinner and the place was a little crowded, however they did a great job by bringing our food fast and everything was delicious.

i stopped to have lunch after checking into my hotel room. Had read good reviews on here about this place. Sat at the bar as I was by myself. The bartender who was not very busy had the worst attitude ever. Sunday Oct19th 2-2:30ish. A simple question about the soup of the day brought on his attitude because I didn't... More

Our family of three shared a Margarita pizza and two salads, which we ordered as takeout to eat at our condo during a recent visit to Banff. The pizza was good and both salads tasty though were smaller portions than expected, compared to a similar high end pizza place back home. Had we eaten in, we might have ordered more,... More

I know this place is known for the pizza but it was very average. My husband and I had a caesar salad along with our pizza and this salad along with a local beer they serve from Canmore were the two things that brought us back the following day. We also tried the Mac and Cheese dish which was good.... More

Saw this place on You Gotta Eat Here (which they play on the screens behind the bar - nothing like a bit of self-promotion), and thought we'd best try it. The food was good, but I felt it was trying a bit hard to be off the wall, rather than being really great. Donair pizza was tasty, but covered in... More

There claim to fame is how great their pizza is. I had their famous-The Wheeler Hut. It is wild forest mushrooms, pine nuts, mozzarella, truffle oil, pesto and pizza sauce. It would have been great is the bottom being burnt to no end. It tasted like burnt toast with toppings. I questioned why the bottom was burnt so badly and... More

This place can always be relied upon for impeccable food and service. Their pizza is by far the best in town, especially when laced with the honey, oil and some extra chili. Everything else I've tried there has been very good as well. The specials they have on food and drinks make it very affordable as well which makes for... More
