Hats off to Jake, our favorite new Aussie server/bartender. We had a great time with him. Excellent food and drinks. Will continue to come to Earls when we come to Banff.

The owner and the team are extremely friendly and whether you have been skiing for the day, or hiking, the food is consistent, enjoyable and lots of it. Earls is a 'chain' but not the usual chain rubbish that you get. I'm fussy and there is finer dining in Banff that I enjoyed, but after the slopes this was great.

Enjoyed our meal and the service. Though very busy our server was on top of her game and very friendly. Food was fantastic. Recommend the spinach dip starter and Chipotle chicken tacos.

Went to the lounge for a couple of drinks and lunch, the server brought us our Caesars right away but.........she had the worst body odour imaginable. Needless to say we didn't order lunch or more Caesars as the smell was seriously unbearable. I think hygiene should be a must at anytime but especially in the service industry!

Visited Earls after eating at Earls in Jasper. Earls in Banff was much calmer and bigger. Chairs more comfortable. Large upstairs area with views of Banff and small outside area. Food was great again and staff friendly and helpful. More expensive though than branch in Jasper!

Girl number 1 told us to go upstairs. Girl number 2 said hello at the top of the stairs. Girl number 3 told girl number 4 where to seat us. Girl number 4 took us to the table. 25 minutes later nobody had taken even a drinks order - we left passing girls 1,2,3 and 4 on the way out

We arrived in Banff last Monday and have now eaten here 3 times. It would have been 4, but a lightning strike forced them to close for one day. Everything we have eaten here has been extremely tasty. Service is excellent and everyone friendly. From pizza to burgers to salads all the meals were very good. The pizza even was... More

Compared to the numerous Earls in Vancouver this Banff franchise does not really stack up. Menu seemed limited. One of our party complained about very dry chicken in a salad. This place was ok but lacked the panache of the home of Earls in Vancouver

Very popular spot particularly with the younger crowd. Our drinks and food were both a little on the slow side but no complaints about the quantity, quality or presentation of the meals. Our son was with us, so there the buzz and ambiance suited all of us. This is a chain, but the standard is pretty good in general.
