Food is always fantastic, if and when you get it. The service is slow and the waitress' and waiters obviously have too many tables... Service could really use a boost, two hours for dinner is a bit much when you want to experience banff while there is still day light.

Went there quite late in the afternoon and was so hungry. Love the pasta. The last time I went to The Old Spaghetti Factory was many many years ago when I was in Vancouver. It was nice to go again in Banff.

Free hot bread with garlic butter and a delicious scoop of ice cream to top of your meal...

Great family dining kids will love the choices. For $15 to $20.00 per adult you get a complete meal. The lasagna and the spaghetti with meat balls, the spicy meat sauce are my favorites. The cocktails are reasonable coffee and tea as well as ice cream is included with the price of your meal. Go off hours as it can... More

Now I'll admit neither of us are particularly hard to impress but we certainly found this place to have the best service we've encountered thus far thanks to a very attentive server (hard to... More

Two 3 course menus including one beer, around 40 CAD incl tips. Very good value for the money. Good location, super nice staff. Worth the 10-15 minute wait.

Sooo the food isn't amazing, but you definitely get a BIG meal for a low price. The portions are very large - It comes with soup or salad, bread, your entree and ice cream! The service was excellent and I enjoyed the scenic view of the town. It's about $15 a person, I would guess (without drinks.) Overall a great... More
