We dine here often and sometimes travel from Calgary/Canmore just to eat here sometimes. Service is always very good and the food is consistent. Tried same of the same dishes at other earls in the city and they FAIL. Their bacon cheddar burger & Jeera curry #LOVE! We just love coming here :)

Went here with my wife for dinner and the service was super slow!It took us like 40 minutes to get some prawns and chicken wings. Service was as slow as the kitchen "expediting" what was ordered. Don't ever come here if you are on a schedule... You will definitely do some sitting around. The food was also not the greatest.... More

I realize that everything is a little more costly in Banff. Don't expect this Earl's to have the same prices as your local Earl's. It wasn't crazy expensive but definitely more. It didn't have nearly the selection of your Earl's back home. Not great service. They do really try but its busy. It was a Friday night though. Food was... More

We ate here with a large group and everyone had something completely different. I had a Thai Shrimp dish that was tasty but I chose it based on a photo on the menu that looked like broiled shrimp over greens. The shrimp was actually fried which surprised me. I wasn't too thrilled with my choice. Two guests had fish and... More

Earl's has great atmosphere, excellent food and waiters. The hostess was a little slow in seating us - she was spending much too much time talking to a group ahead of us, but once seated, the experience was excellent. The prices are very reasonable. The selection of drinks are also great. I had a pineapple ginger margarita - very different... More

Earls has a varied menu with something for everyone, a great lounge and perfect family dining opportunity. Good selection on wines by the glass. The company is owned by Albertans so its always good to support local!

There are a ton of great restaurants in Banff. Earls isn't really original, but sticking to their usual corporate philosophy makes them a winner here. The prices are reasonable, the food is good, the service is good, and there are gluten free/allergy conscious items on the menu.The expansion has made it a lot easier to get a table. Good place...

I love every Earls that I've ever been to and the one in Banff is no exception. I had the special which was some sort of stuff chicken dish and I ate the whole thing in just a few minutes. The staff is really friendly and the atmosphere is great. Nice little view over the main road running through Banff.

Earl's did not let us down on our recent trip to Banff. The food, like in BC or Ontario, was very good - fresh, hot, tasty, well priced and served, as in all Earl's, with a smile. Value for your money and a 'sure thing' in a town that we were unfamiliar with paid off - we enjoyed our appetizers... More
