Muriel was lovely

This was our third visit to this location and we have never been disappointed. The food is always good, the wine selection is not bad for a family restaurant and the service (though sometimes a tad slow) is friendly and welcoming.

Four of us visited Earl's for dinner around 5pm on arrival at Banff. The restaurant was practically empty but service was still very slow, though friendly. The menu sounded excellent and there was a lot of choice so I had anticipated visiting Earl's several times during my time at Banff. However the food was very poor. I ordered the Mediterranean...

Food was hot. I had the Blackend Chedder Chicken Sandwich. Son had Fish and Chips. Dessert was a great Key Lime Pie!

The location could not be more ideal, right in the center of town. It is located on the 2nd floor, so if you get a booth or table at the window you can have some good views. Service was fine, although I think they were a bit understaffed - our server was sweating profusely, I felt kind of sorry for... More

Earl's is a great place for a good meal. The atmosphere is very fun and our kids had a great time. The waitstaff was outstanding and friendly. The food was really good. Everyone at our table was very pleased. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed multiple appetizers and the extensive beer selection rather than a full dinner. This is a friendly, fun place.

Our Tuack tour director recommended this restaurant. We spent a truly delightful lunch hour looking at the beautiful scenery, ate some of the best food we have ever had-a mushroom burger and a chicken sandwich with all the fixings. The service by Michael our waiter was most courteous and pleasant. We could not ask for more. As a result of... More

We ate here one night after tripping around Banff. It was average-- just like any Earls throughout Alberta. Nothing particularly good or bad-- just average. My friend enjoyed her Jerusalem salad while I thought the Santa Fe salad was pretty ordinary. Both of us were underwhelmed by the cheesecake. We're dessert people and this was a bit un-interesting to us.... More

I went up to Banff from Calgary on a Wednesday to show my cousin around town. We stopped in at Earls for a quick bite. I had an AMAZING santa fe chicken salad, my mother had the dynamite roll and my cousin had the Caesar salad. Not only was the food absolutely exceptional, the bartenders, waiters and manager were great... More

Great experience at Earls. Seated by a very knowledgeable waiter and excellently assisted by our Server. Great food including the Cajun Chicken Cheddar Sandwich and Gold Digger dessert.
