“This place is GOOD (btw avg. and very) and you get what you should expect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

What I love about Banff is the variety and selection that it offers travelers. Tommy's fills the gap for inexpensive pub grub, beer specials and the urge to buy your buddies a round of shots. It doesn't pretend to be a Diamond rated restaurant and is that basement watering hole of a bar that locals hang out in. I lived in Banff in the mid-90's and was back again in April. Walking into Tommy's, nothing changed. Some may see this as a bad thing. I say they know what they are, what they do and who they cater to and just keep doing it. Check them out for a low-cost pub meal, drinks and simply enjoy the experience.

“Great pub fare, great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Had lunch here while in Banff. Looks like a little hole in the wall being in the basement, but looks can be deceiving! Pub grub, good food, good prices. Specials were great. Lots to choose from in Banff, this is a relatively cheap choice.

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

We ate at Tommy's twice during a recent visit. The food was very good value and the steak sandwich special was enjoyed by all. Even the children enjoyed the steak sandwich and with the price so reasonable, the price was on a par with the children's menu. The children's menu was rather limited and the dry rib starter was slightly overcooked when we ordered them, but this did not deter us from returning. Highly recommended.

“Best bar in Baff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We tried most of the bars in Banff in the course of our stay and Tommys was consistently the best all round. Has a great cosy bar feel and staff always friendly. The food was good and the daily specials represented great value on food and drink, even compared to the specials offered by other venues nearby. Classic rock tracks playing in the background was a welcome treat and darts/video games on offer if that's your thing. Just a great place to sit and have a few beers - and a plate of Tommy Spuds!!
