Our first visit to Earls. Food was very good. I had the steak (medium rare) and kids raved about the burgers. My spouse loved the salad special. Good service too!

I LOVE Earl's, however, due to a fire, Earl's in Banff has been closed. The fire and water damage was extensive but there is a tentative re-opening date in August. Just thought it would be helpful for Banff visitors to know..

We were skiing in Banff on Christmas Day and decided to stop for supper. Even though it was a holiday, the restaurant was fully staffed and everyone was very festive and happy.

Restaurant is almost always busy, the service is pretty good. The food is great and pretty much consistent and tastes like in any other Earls restaurants.

On Johnston street, a little off the main drag, this place was recommended by a local, and it was very good! I had a chicken/brie/fig baguette with a couple of local brews. The walls are decorated with old photographs by a famous resident (sorry, forgot his name!) and they are worth a close look.
