“Ridiculously Good Pizza - a crazy understatement!!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

After a great day on the hill we were looking for some pizza. After some asking of the locals we were told to head to the Bear Street Tavern. Mondays offer 10 dollar pizzas and cheap beer. The place was packed and so we sat at the bar but it was good with lots of space per person so you didn't feel crowded. Ryan our bartender/server was very attentive and all around great. We tried some of his favorites as far as pizza goes and I am glad we did. The pizza is the best pizza I have ever had.....bar none!! Service was great, food was great, and beer was better!! Will be back every time I get to Banff.

“OK”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Saw the good reviews and thought we would give it a try. Tried on 3 different days to get in, but they were full, so we thought it must be good. When we did get in, the food was average, The service was good though. Probably won't be going back though.

“Great Deals”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Can't beat the deals here.

Many a Sunday I will make my way to the tavern to get my fix of fantastic pizza and a stein of exquisite beer.

The only downside is it can get rather cramped in the tiny dining room.

Otherwise highly recommended.

“different deals every day”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We went there on Monday night as had read a review on ta for $10 pizza. They have different pizzas on offer each Monday night, this week there were four - we had a classic and a donair, both delicious especially with the chilli and honey sauces. Canmore bottled beers were well priced so all in all a really good deal. Busy place, attentive server, didnt feel rushed like that but a large turnover of customers. Different deals each night, definitely worth a visit, worth every buck.

“Good pizza in casual atmosphere”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We have eaten here a few times now and it has become our go-to pizza place when in Banff. Although it is a tavern it is very family friendly with tables in the rear. The pizzas are a good size with interesting combinations and fairly reasonably priced. Some servers are better than others- one gal was definitely more interested in getting people (guys) to look at her than serving the food - but others have been very friendly and efficient. I understand the Bison restaurant upstairs is very good as well.
