“Came here twice in a week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The first time was with my wife, after finding most restaurants were closed after 9 pm. We were glad Earl's was open. Both of us had salmon (since we are in Canada), which was excellent. Came a few days later with a friend (we were attending a conference). Wanted to have salmon again, but the restaurant ran out. I had halibut, which was fine but kind of small portion for its price. The sweet-potato fries were very tasty, however. I like that the restaurant has a special on one of its cocktails everyday.

“Earl's in Banff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Boring atmosphere, possibly needs to redone. Over priced menu for what you get. Salads are anyway. On the upside, Earl's food is pretty good and the entrees are a decent value.

“Perfect salad and amazing sweet potato fries!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

A new favorite in Banff! Went for lunch...no wait...delicious food! The special grilled portobello and red pepper sandwich and sweet potato fries were great for my husband. So many fries, he let me nibble too! What a tasty treat...not too salty at all:). My field greens salad was perfect! Friendly service. Great meal. Under 25 bucks...are you kidding me? As vegetarians we actually enjoyed Earls more than the top rated vegetarian restaurant in town. Looking forward to a return and to checking out the Jasper Earls!

“Excellent dinners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Four of us enjoyed different items from the menu. Server was friendly, obviously enjoyed his work, and helpful with any questions.
