flattened dough, deep fried with lots of delicious toppings to choose from, my fave - half nutella and banana, the other half cinnamon sugar and lemon juice. Not overly pricey, and yummy

The beaver tails taste great. It is almost like a cinnamon pancake with toppings. Great idea and we ordered 4 beaver tails and got them within minutes

Beaver Tails a more of a novelty food. There are so many different flavor/topping you can add to the pastry. Pastry is like pizza dough and rolled/preformed out and fried. The most popular was the cinnamon sugar, which I thought was the best. There is a long line waiting out the door. It is well worth the trip and could... More

We thought we'd treat our kids so we stopped in for some gelato, a BeaverTail and a BeaverDog. We had a #7 BeaverTail and it was DELICIOUS. The BeaverDog wasn't as good as I expected. I am a big savory lover and a lover of hot dogs so it's weird for me to have liked the BeaverTail better. One small... More

I'd never heard of Beavertails until now. Fabulous! Absolutely Fabulous. We loved it. The service was quick and friendly. We'll be back to munch another beaver soon!

Saw a Beavertails in Toronto and it didn't look all that from the outside. Saw another Niagara and one in Banff the next day and had to satisfy my curiosity. It looks terrible and clearly heart attack friendly but the fresh taste of a just cooked pastry with what appears to be Nutella, Reese's pieces and peanut butter on top... More

Enjoyed the fried pastry with toppings. This is a sweet pastry. The fries were also very good. Since it is on the main street of Banff it can have a long line so service may not be extremely fast. These pastries are also rather messy to eat - and there is no bathroom to wash your hands afterwards.

It is not healthy but, oh man, is it good. A beavertail is a must eat if you are in Banff. The fried dough is tasty alone but when you put the toppings on it, it goes to another level. We got the Vanilla Icing with Oreo. My 16 year old son said it was the best thing he has... More

There was a line of people outside the door, but I really wanted to try the Beavertail, which had been recommended to me. The wait was well worth it! I got the chocolate hazelnut beavertail. It was heavenly! I had no idea something so simple would taste so good! It's put in a double sided wrapper, but it can still... More

We stopped in for a quick snack and got a beaver dog. It was a hot dog wrapped in a puffed pastry and it was very good for a lunch on the go.
