“Good food, good service, great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We went there based on it being top 10 on tripadvisor for banff. Ordered the Reuben and the Alberta Ribs. Both were very good, and service was very personable and good. Only issue is there is only one bathroom downstairs which meant waiting in a queue - but a great little place.

“Great food. Not so good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Lively atmosphere at 3:00 in the afternoon and still busy. We were seated quickly. However we did not get drink refills and the server would not come back often to ask for refills. Also dirty appetizer plates were left on our table too long.

The food is delicious thought. Appetizers came quickly. Would maybe come again for the food.

“Good Pizzas and Fun Too”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Greta drinks, pizza, and fun. A little crowded with the locals, but that meant it was good. Service was above average.

“Yummy Calzone's Tuesday nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Tuesday special at the Bear St Tavern is $10 calzone's. yum yum. According to my 13 yo boy, best pizza ever! The fillings were big, fresh and oh so tasty and served with a salad. Service was great. Loads of choices of beers, wines and cocktails. Great atmosphere. Think about booking as very busy. We were lucky to just drop in and get a seat at the bar, but that was fine. Highly recommend the Calzones on the Tuesday nights. They have specials most evenings so check them out for great food on a budget. Value for money.

“Pizza Night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

All I can say is that you need to visit the Bear St Tavern on a Monday for their $10 pizza night! You must mix the honey and chili oil on the pizza! Best combination ever!! they are geniuses.
