It is located at Wolf st with Banff Av, in the heart of the town. Views of the main street área depending where you sit. Great service!!!! Waiter was so kind with us. My friend didn't speak English and he spoke to him in Spanish. Our choice was very good. Ambiance is very nice. Prices are reasonable for Banff and... More

We arrived late on a Monday night and our hotel recommended Earls for a casual meal. It was spot on. I had a warm kale salad which was absolutely divine, my mom had lettuce wraps and my aunt had fish tacos (which she said were just ok). Nice variety on the menu, nice ambiance!

Was disappointed by the burgers but the fries were great! Husband said the fried riblets were okay but were a bit odd.

It is a bit of a climb upstairs to Earls. We were greeted by a friendly server who gave us the opportunity to review the menu before deciding to be seated.This is important to me because I am gluten intolerant (this is a real condition and those of us who have it are not just trying to be annoying).The gluten...

Earls is located in the heart of the town of Banff. The view (up one flight) is wonderful of the main street area. Lots of imaginative choices and fresh, healthy food of all variety. Great service and a bit crowded at peak times. Chairs at the table are almost like easy chairs, you sink in. A bit pricey but average... More

The food was great from the cocktails to the delicious shrimp goyza to the chipotle chicken tacos. And the sticky toffee Chocolate pudding was to die for. Unfortunate the service awful, supposedly due to an absent server. In this case the manager needs to step up and do extra Duty rather than being invisible.

We were on a tour of Banff and found this restaurant a few blocks from our hotel. The food and service were excellent.

Lots of locals. Good food. Good service. Nice place for a drink or a drink and some food. We saw lots of locals going so we thought we should try it.

I heard the food is good here, but we were unable to make it up the large, steep stairs. Many places in Banff are completely inaccessible to older or disabled people, because they are up or down 2 or more flights of steep stairs. I'm 61 with arthritis in my hip and can't climb that many stairs. My wife and... More
