“Tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went there on a Saturday night, around 10pm for a late night meal. We all ordered a half salad and the butternut squash soup. The soup was served in a huge bowl and we were all very pleased with the portion sizes. We sat along the window overlooking Banff Avenue. Very cool.

“Good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were regulars on our last trip so couldn't wait to get back to the Elk but were a little disappointed that the food was not quite as good this time. That said, it's a nice place, the staff are friendly and the food is good. Recommend visiting if the advertised daily special appeals to you as they offer great deals on food and drink.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

After coming to this pub for the first we have been back several times now, the food is excellent. Great value for money, good selection of food and the staff are very friendly. We love this place and will always pop in if we are in Banff again.
