Excellent Pizza in a pleasant, well-run restaurant

The pizza was outstanding! The beer was excellent. The service was great. The manager is totally on top of things. We dined in the outdoor courtyard, which is so pleasant. The manager brought a bowl of fresh water for the dog of the table next to us (which was laying just outside the courtyard... read more

We had the primo Italiano pizza - yum yum! Also the rose sangria was perfect on a warm Banff night. Pretty quick and very friendly service :-)

We were promptly seated and drink orders taken and served promptly. Everyone ordered pizza. I ordered the Bison pizza. Pizzas were delivered without much wait. Our friends said the pizzas were ok but not lip smacking like we had expected. I could count on one hand the number of small bison slices on my pizza. Come on Bear street don't... More

Great food and service. Me and my girlfriend decided to try here after seeing such great reviews. The food was awesome and the staff was very friendly and seated us right away. I had the garlic cheese fingers, which we found out is not an appetizer, but was very good. My girlfriend had the tuna melt and the cream of... More

We were told the Bear Street Tavern had the best pizza in Banff, so we had to check it out. We were not disappointed. We had a great lunch- but we did have to wait for a table, even though there were several that looked available (and watched as the hostess seated her friends who arrived after us before us!).

Excellent pizza served on a two decks plate so you can easily share. The pasta was crusty and just cooked to perfection. They have great beers and the atmosphere is quit great. Service was very helpful. Good experience !

We were so impressed by this restaurant when recently visiting Banff. We ate outside on the back patio, our waitress ( Claudia) couldn't have been nicer and really knew the menu and helped us navigate what to do while visiting Banff for the few days we had to explore this area. We had delicious local beers, a beet salad (... More

Cute little place. Had an outstanding grill cheese sandwich with gouda and the like. The soup was also good. My fiancee had a roast beef sandwich with some type of sauce. It was a little messy and didn't have the punch one would expect. Overall somewhat creative and good. Not bad if you want to sit outside and people watch.

Outstanding personal size pizza. Who would have expected such great tasting pizza in Banff Canada. Numerous toppings available. Ordered 3 pies for 4 people. Very busy restaurant. Expect to have to wait on Friday - Sunday. We got in on our second attempt. Very good selection of cocktails and beer. Service was very friendly and efficient. Casual setting, great for... More

This was the second time we've eaten here. The pizza is good and the wait staff are competent but our hostess was inept. First she seated a party of five despite the fact that they butted ahead of us. Then she ignored us for five minutes. She was busy setting a table in the back patio but didn't tell us... More
