My hubby & I are regular visitors to Banff & have tried many different places to eat & drink, the Elk started out really good, reasonably priced beers & food, good menu & food, typical fare is burgers, salads, steaks, fries, etc.
Service is always good & friendly.
However we have eaten there on a few occasions more recently when the food has been mediocre, quality not as good & arrives cold from the kitchen.
We will however go back & try again as there's always a good atmosphere & it's a good spot for people watching.
