Good burger, good price!

I love Earls! You can have beer and also a good burger with a good price. I have had two different burgers and liked the one comes with onion rings! The onions are crispy and take some burger juice inside, yummy! The guys there were nice and friendly. We sat on the second floor which is more... read more

We have been to Earls in Banff about twice annually since 1996 and have always felt it was an enjoyable restaurant with consistently good food and service. It was always one of our favorite places in Banff. However, two nights ago we had our first very poor experience there: 1. The Rhino lager ale tasted like a watered down Bud... More

Came to Earls for dinner. We had a nice experience with Earls in Calgary and thought and hoped it would be the same. Reservations: Can't make reservations but you can leave your name and schedule a time. They will slot you in with 'priority seating' when you arrive at the arranged time. Pros: Our server was very nice and personable.... More

Great atmosphere here and fab service. Just had a wonderful meal and they went to the trouble of making up some food just how the kids wanted it. The ribs were amazing as was the steak. Right in centre of Banff. Prices on the expensive side but the good was so good we didn't mind paying for it.

Visited for dinner, warm welcome and prompt helpful service. Very good food and drinks selection. Ordered clam chowder and Cajun chicken breast. Chowder was delicious although no clams evident. Cajun chicken was 5 star, tender, tasty, delicious. Chowder discounted on the bill. If clams had been present, the meal would have an excellent rating. Service excellent.

I was disappointed for an Earls...the main issue was that they utilized zero sound barriers between tables...so it was packed back to back with people and so loud you could not really talk or enjoy a romantic meal. I left disappointed because I was looking for a nice relaxing romantic dinner and it felt more like I was in a... More

Had a Fantastic Steak meal here sooo tasty. The only down side was asked for chips to replace the Garlic Mash as I am allergic to Garlic but the meal then came with the mash and veg and side order of chips which we were charged extra for I mentioned to the waiter who just said sorry and walked away....

Very friendly waitress, seated immediately with no reservation at 6:30 pm in mid-August. Salad had too much dressing, entrees were pretty good but did not inspire us to return.

Had the opportunity to eat at the bar in Earl's Banff on Aug 17. We were seated immediately by Atila and served by Jamie and Kieran. Both bartenders were extremely helpful in both recommendations and service. The food was great as expected from Earl's but the attention and conversation with the bartenders made our meal. Again, thanks Jamie and Kieran... More
