“Great burgers and ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We ate here loads of times over 3 month stay in Banff - I usually had burgers and the portion sizes were huge. Service was quick. Others had the ribs and they were great - but huge if you had a full rack. Great atmosphere especially for a big group.

“Nice place for a casual lunch and some people-watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I dropped in here when craving a burger after a 2.5hr walk on one of Banff's trails (logical, right?). It was about 2:30 on a Sunday afternoon and we'd clearly missed the lunch rush, but there was a steady trickle of fellow diners still coming through the doors. Grab a booth by the windows - a great place to people watch as they face onto the main street. We were entertained our whole meal by tourists trying to take photos of each other in the middle of the street with the mountains behind.

Staff were prompt to seat us and our server was friendly and efficient. I had the crispy onion ring burger and my partner had the bistro burger - both were nice and hit the spot, but nothing to write home about. The real draws for this place are that their menu has something for everyone, they can cater to large groups and the location is super central.

“Great Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Wonderful staff and food, great location over looking Banff Avenue! Also in the Mount Royal hotel which is easily the best hotel I've stayed in, in all my times in Banff!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a very good meal here and it was just as good as we remembered form our last visit. The staff were very accommodating as we were a party of 10 and had not booked, but they very quickly found us a table despite being quite busy. It's not the cheapest place to eat but the food was excellent.

“Best Ribs in Banff”

Excellent restaurant, so good we ate there twice during our 5 night stay.
