Great value for money

This establishment has an excellent "all included" menu. With the main meal you get bread and garlic butter, soup or salad, main course, ice cream and tea or coffer all for the published price for the main meal. Lunchtime offers even better. For under CAN$10 each we had excellent 3 course meal... read more

Booking a reservation was definitely worth it! Sat down immediately and had excellent service from Amelie. The food was hot, with little to no wait between dishes - perfect for our three children!

Nice, but very large, restaurant in antique style. Beware of waiting time to be sested up till half an hour. Very nice folded menu printed in newspaper style. Large choice of dishes, all complete with soup or salad, ice cream and coffee or tea. Good food, although nothing special, fits all tastes. Due to waiting people everything goes quite fast.

We wandered in for a late lunch. I know this is a chain, but it was very good. They have lunch specials until 2:30. The soup and salad lunch special comes with tea or coffee, bread and ice cream for $9.25 Canadian ( $7.50 U.S. Currently). Good service. Get a table at the open window on the second floor and...

A good break from fast food. Nice atmosphere, moderate prices. They also had some craft beers that were decent.

Outstanding experience, much more than expected at Old Spaghetti Factory in Banff. We were two couples looking for an average meal. Made a reservation, immediately seated at reservation time ahead of a long line of other people. Jeff our server was "over the top" friendly, engaging, gave great recommendations on menu selection. He was one of the best Server /... More

We had looked at several places to eat dinner but found them all noisy. Eventually we walked into the Old Spaghetti Factory. There was no loud music so we decided to try it. All meals come complete with bread and a dessert included in the price. They had a decent wine list and to our surprise we enjoyed a very... More

Our coach driver recommended this cheap and cheerful restaurant and it did not disappoint. Great food. Plenty of choice and our cheery waitress Rebecca.

If you want a substantial meal for not a big price then this is the place to go. Meals include bead, soup/salad, main and dessert. Great value for money and the food was pretty good too
