“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Really good atmosphere at this restaurant. Even though it was full we got seated pretty quickly The meals were pretty good. The boys got the Steak sandwich that was the special of the day. The pasta however wasn't that tasty. Great service from the friendly server.

“Yummy !!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

My husband, teenage daughter and I ate at the Elk and Oarsmen on our last night in Banff. We had the Elk Nachos which were really good. My daughter had the ribs which were a little dry but ok and my husband and I had the pizza which was also quite enjoyable. The servings were VERY generous. We could have made a meal for the both of us on the Nachos alone. The serving staff were very friendly and courteous. The only small complaint we had was the music was very loud which made any type of conversation difficult. On the whole, we enjoyed the restaurant and would go again.

“Awesome pub - great food”

Excellent meat dishes and burgers with generous sides at a reasonable price. Great pub atmosphere with plenty of live hockey. Don't miss Everything Elk! Special on Wednesdays.

“great food”

The place was completely packed when we got there in the evening, we got one of few seats left in the patio upstairs. Bison burger and nachos were both amazing! GREAT view from the patio upstairs!
