Loved it

Gluten free Hawaiian was delicious and my husband absolutely loved the regular crust donair pizza. A must try! Honey is a great added touch.

Great pizza. The kids portions are generous. The honey Rosemary-pepper dipping sauce is unique and excellent!

A Reuben sandwich, the Mac & Cheese, a glass of wine and a huge stein of beer -- on the sunny patio. All made for a very enjoyable lunch.

It was our first day in Banff and this restaurant was recommended by the tour bus driver. It was indeed on Beer Street and is a little farther from the main pulse of the town. We ate there for lunch and were able to only find seating at the bar. My wife had soup and salad and I had a... More

We went for pizza and our waitress delivered it quickly along with a bottle of honey and a rosemary-chili pepper infused olive oil. We were puzzled so she explained we should mix the two together and use this as a dipping sauce for our pizza. I'd never heard of the combination but was more than willing to try my margherita...

I've been to this restaurant twice and it's my favorite hands down. The atmosphere is energizing, the decor is nice and the staff is great. The food; amazing. The pulled pork nacho's and pizza are out of this world. I highly recommend this restaurant !

We visited this casual establishment for lunch one day. We were eager to try it because there was always a wait. Well, we were really happy with our choice. My son had the gluten free pizza that was fabulous. My other son had a regular crust pizza and I had the beet salad which was all very good. The waitstaff... More

My boyfriend and I ate here after looking at reviews on Trip Advisor, and we're glad we did. The beer list was really extensive and I had a local honey wheat beer at the recommendation of our server. It was great. We got the cheese bread fingers (something like that?) for an appetizer and it was essentially an entire pizza.... More

The food here is delicious, and fiilling. Casual menu, to suit all tastes. A lot of people around us were having pizza, which looked very tasty. I opted for chicken wings... mango salsa dip was a highlight. My husband went for mac and cheese with pork belly - which was great. I skipped desert, but the coffe has a great... More

We queued up here to get a seat as it is very busy. Looking forward to an own made pizza. The menus looked very nice but it is almost all pizzas. The waitress girl was very jolly but also very cheesy... Looking to get better tips.... When our food came it was far tooooooooo salty for me to eat. I... More
