We have been to bear street pizza many times over the last few years. It had always been an enjoyable time until our last visit. The pizza was still delicious but the service was very average. It was just the 2 of us and we were waiting for about 10 minutes when a family of 4 walked in and were seated immediately. I asked the girl whats the deal and she said we had to wait for a table for 2. I was not impressed and im sure she could tell so we got a 4 seated table in another 5 minutes or so. When we got in, there was another couple at a 4 seat table already eating. I understand how they would think a family of 4 would spend more money than a couple but that's not always the case. Very disappointed in how we were lied to and treated from our waiter after that. We usually have a stein or 2 of beer each plus a pizza each but this time we just shared a pizza and left as we felt extremely unwelcome. We may give bear street another chance next time we are in town as i know we had many great experiences there beforehand.

If you're ever in Banff, this place is a must. Grab a stein and pizza for under $25 at lunch and your can't get any better! Friendly servers, great gluten-free options and delicious beers.

We came here for a pre-dinner drink on Saturday night and for lunch the next day. The pizza, wings and service were all top-notch. If you like thin crust pizza, theirs is one of the best!

We loved it. Buzzing atmosphere, with a great selection of pizza and beers. Friendly service from start to finish. The godfather was delicious, everyone was eating from that plate! Classic wasn't as great. Hawaiian fab. Agree with other reviews, honey & chilli oil a great combo! We would go back again & again if it was close to home!
