We were looking for a quick meal on our way out of town, and this was a good option. It's very large, and I think probably takes on a party atmosphere at night. We ate early in the evening, and the service was attentive, the food fine. Nothing remarkable, but a solid choice at a reasonable-enough price.

We came here to hear a country band. Just in town for a few nights and we had a great evening here because of the bartender! He was an absolute blast and made us lots of specialty shots which we all enjoyed. Will be back!

This is a typical Sports Bar-Pub, but the upstairs location gives it that extra push. Sitting outside in summer is wonderful over looking Banff Avenue. The food is good, but not over the top....good basic burgers and fries..."bar food" that hits the spot along with the cold beer. Very friendly staff with a big Bar to sit around. Worth the... More

Unfortunately we revived very minimal service here. The server didn't write our orders down and had to ask twice what we wanted, and them when the food came out my order was wrong. The server seamed uninterested and did not ask us how anything was after we received our food. I ordered a portobello burger. Thank goodness I'm not a... More

After reading about the elk burger here, we decided to check it out. We walked upstairs into a beautiful open restaurant with a view of the mountains, so I got excited, but then we were led through the saloon doors and I sat facing a wall of VLT's and a very drunk gentleman used our table as a crutch twice...

We came here for some drinks and there was a live band on but we still didn't find the atmosphere to be all that amazing! There are better places in Banff.

Great service but food typical basic style consisting of burgers of all types - such as bison. Not especially tasty but nice enough.

GET THE Nachos! Tons of food and with a cold beer it is perfect. Make sure to ask for a window view to people watch from the second level.

There was a great selection of music and people which made it a nice location for a few drinks. Think we must have got there quite early to begin with as it was very quiet, but we returned later and it was much busier.

Since I'm from Colorado, I decided to have lunch at this Western themed place. Ordered an elk burger, med-rare and it came well done. After arguing with the waitress for at least 5min, she finally asked the chef to do one medium which was juicy and very good. You just can't over cook elk. Had a seat by the window... More
