Typical Earls - Reliable

I was in town for a conference and some of us were looking for a place to have supper on a Monday night. Earls was the first place we stumbled across. It's upstairs with a nice view if you get a seat by the windows. The service is good, and the menu is like most Earls, but with a modest... read more

Having not been to an Earls for many years I decided to drop in on the spur of a moment to catch the end of a hockey game. I sat at the bar and ordered a pint of draft beer and wings. The cold beer arrived promptly in a heavy frosted glass. There were large TV's over the bar so... More

8 in our party ... 5 steaks, not 1 was cooked properly. I mean medium rare was a full out well done. Corporate dinner so no one really complained to the staff, but the one person that made a comment without being that 'picky' person was simply told 'sorry'. Go to the Keg !!! Not impressed at all. Frequently do... More

We have been coming to Banff for many years and Earls has become our favorite eating place. We often stay for a couple of weeks and probably eat here more than half the time. The menu is extensive- importantly for us there is a lot of choice for healthy eating but equally dishes such as the curry and the steaks... More

Love this restaurant with great mountain views from all angles. Walked in and Hostess is playing with her hair and ignoring us. Place half full, but she insists 10 minutes for a table! Ask if we can sit to wait, and she rudely replies sit down at entrance chair Perhaps a career change for her would help. Waitress catches all... More

We had two delicious breakfasts here, eggs Benedict and a mushroom chorizo dish. Incredibly tasty and absolutely loaded with calories, but hey ho! Didn't need to eat again until dinner time. Our server, Hale was very friendly and kept our coffee mugs full. He also suggested we try the gondola up Sulphur Mountain, and we are SO glad we did.... More

We ended up at Earl's because it was just too cold to keep looking for dinner options... turned out to be a good choice. My partner had the cajun chicken snd ribs and says it was the best meal he's ever had. Chickrn was moist and tasty. Ribs very tender and fell off the bone. I also enjoyed my vegetarian... More

I went there for a day trip with family. Food was great and staff were ok! We had to ask to be helped a few times but not a big deal.
