Service was Great

Earls is one of my favourite places to eat as i know I can count on it having good food and great service. This location was no different. I was in town for 8 days for a conference and actually ate there twice. Both times the service and food were what I expect at Earls.

For the amount of training Earls makes their employes go through, service was not good. No one smiled. Everything was cold. Manager was absent. Ribs were alright (but not as good as Chilis!) Bathrooms were nice.

We enjoyed Earl's in Banff. The salmon was excellent. The service was great, and the atmosphere is relaxed. I've dined at Earl's in Vancouver, Scottsdale, and now Banff. The food has always been great.

True, a friendly and joyful entry by friendly young girls. Even a bit too friendly by our standards, when it's 'overfriendly' we mean 'not really meant' . We are just not into that, sorry. That's one. Second, when you ask for 9 oz. of chardonnay, you didn't order 6 oz. Third, when you order ribs, a full rack, you didn't... More

We had the ribs with Cajun chicken which was excellent. The place was very quiet and the young staff seemed preoccupied with each other rather than their customers! However worth a visit for the food.

Good food, good service (as like many places in Banff, and much better than we are used to in the UK). Ate as two families; accommodating our specific requirements on cooking, accompaniments (i.e lack of anything green anywhere near the plate of our 12-yr-old son). Recommended and would go back.

I have been visiting Banff for ten years and always stop in at Earls. Although it is a chain, the ribs at the Banff branch have always been excellent. I cannot comment on much else as I always have the same thing and wouldn't risk not having the ribs! Drinks and service are fine.

We visited twice as the food was brilliant. If you like chicken wings then try these as they were the best we found in Banff (we tried a lot of places!). A nice selection of different types of food and each was tasty and to a high standard. Will definitely re-visit Earls when we return to Banff again.
