We were Happy with the pizza. One pizza could feed 2. Fish tacos were tasty. Kids menu could be a bit more extensive.

Our first night in Banff and it was pouring; there was a long wait for a table so we took two seats at the bar for a shorter wait and we had the best time! The two bartenders who took care of us were awesome. They gave us samples of beer, knew the menu very well, and made us feel... More

While in one of the stores in Banff, I asked the storekeeper to recommend a good place for pizza - both he and the customer behind me said in unison "Bear Street Tavern". We headed over and are so glad we did. It is a cozy, fun, friendly atmosphere, not fancy but comfortable. We were seated right away - they... More

I have been going to Banff for many years and I am thrilled to have discovered this gem!!! I recommend... More

Off the beaten path of Banff's main street, we saw a line outside the Tavern waiting to get in and so we knew we had stumbled upon something good! We sat at the bar and chatted it up with guests, many of which are travelers like we were. It was Tuesday with a special on freshly made calzones, YUM! Many... More

We decided to stop here on our last night in Banff and were not disappointed. We had the Big Bird pizza and Pork Belly Mac and Cheese. Both were great choices. Our server, Alexis, was terrific. She was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend.

We ordered the pork belly mac & cheese, the Hawaiian pizza and strawberry shortcake. Awesome meal. Thin crust pizza with chilli oil and honey for dip was superb. The mac and cheese was soo cheesy and the chunks of cauliflower and pork belly were a nice surprise. We finished our meal with the strawberry shortcake and it was delicious! We... More
