This place was really neat. It felt like a secret as it was upstairs. The place was very cozy and had awesome beers and burgers. Great place to wind down after a big day of hiking and sight-seeing!

I’ve been here a few times, since last time I was here they have changed their menu for the better. They have multiple good beers but often they are out of atleast 2 types. Service is ok, nice atmosphere.

The service was good although we had to wait a while initially, for no apparent reason (it wasn't busy). Unfortunately they were out of several beers on the menu and the food was mediocre. Overall it was disappointing.

Good food, ambiance, and craft beer. Accommodates larger parties. Gnocchi was delicious. Wings and nachos were good as well. Server was fantastic. Everyone in our large party enjoyed their meals! Would visit here again.

It seemed like almost everyone we met in Banff suggested this place to eat. They have a big selection of beers and lots of TVs to watch sporting games. We got some nachos and beer tasters to start. Loved the atmosphere and the openness of...More
