Great dinner stop our only night in Banff. I hate to do it but have to take one off due to their hostess. She acted incredibly put off when we walked in & asked for a table for 2. She said, "It's a long wait. I'm sorry." We had to prod answers out of her like how long? Can we... More

As we were passing Banff at lunch time we stopped in to try the Bear Street Tavern as I had heard of it previously. Considering it was off season for Banff, the restaurant was busy, but not full. The décor is fairly modern although the tables have been well used. The menu is quite extensive with many of the pub... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and almost walked out as they had no tables available, only 2 spots at the bar.

Also the pulled pork nachos are a must. The beer selection is moderate and there is a good red ale and a nut ale too. Like I said, the godfather and Hawaiian pulled pork pizzas are awesomely good. Nice atmosphere, even nice little nooks to bring a date. Totally work stopping off for a slice of pie.

My wife and I ate here two days in a row while staying in Banff. Both times, we got pizza and shared a punch bowl. Food was spectacular and the punch bowls were a blast to share.

It's busy, but they are very accommodating and get you in fast. Great pizza and the serving sizes are large. Very good value and a great place to eat.

Went for lunch with the family and had a great meal. Service was excellent and timely and the suggestions by the waitstaff had us trying some new things. The Bison topped pizza was wonderful!
