“Great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Nothing fancy, just a small friendly bar, we enjoyed a couple of great breakfasts there. We also sampled the après ski special - beer and nachos, and one evening stayed on for the karaoke night, a great laugh!

“Typical Bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Nothing special but nothing bad to say about it either. Little hole in the wall place. Their breakfast looked really good but we split a pulled pork sandwich and it was fine.

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Tucked away in a side street. Server was excellent, very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Good choice of beer and food was very nice. Makes a nice change from more formal restaurants.

“Okay place to eat in Banff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Remembering this is a bar and grill and you're not there for the decor and ambiance, and you're in a tourist town, this a good place to get a good reasonably priced meal. The service was quick. The single page menu has the usual bar fare of burgers and wraps but with some unusual twists such as the "tragically hip" burger. We had the "curry of the week" - buttered chicken, which came with plenty of rice and crackers, but no Nan bread. Some thought the dish was excellent, others were less enthused. Maybe it would have been wiser to stick with the more traditional bar and grill food?

“Awesome place for dinner/drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

I stumbled upon this place after spending the day at Sunshine. Judging by the number of ski's leaning out front I assumed it had to be a good place. Cory was my server and recommended the Tragically Hip burger which sounded pretty strange with the PB but it was amazing! Ended up coming back later that night for some live music. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a bite to eat or a fun friendly atmosphere to meet some people.
