“Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Excellent restaurant and they have a gulten -free menu. Burgers were excellent! and my husband finished with the gingerbread which was delicious! (this was not gulten-free)

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

My favourite place in Banff. Downstairs is the bar area with a great selection of wines and beers. Can't decide what to drink? Then ask for a taster! Nothing too much trouble.
Upstairs is the very popular restaurant. We ate here several times and were never disappointed. Great food with great staff.

“Service and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

My son and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Earls yesterday in Banff. The hostess and server (Elise and Amanda) made our experience very enjoyable. The hostess was so friendly and really made us feel welcome. The server was very friendly as well, she made sure we had everything we needed. The food was exceptional (thank you chef)! The price was excellent!

I would definitely recommend Earls in Banff to all visitors. We will be returning to Earls again soon.

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and excellent staff!

“Great food, service questionable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

This restaurant is upstairs. Room is crowded and VERY noisy. We wait for service for 20 minutes. No one comes near our table. Finally, as a waiter walks past us, I hail him and request service. He apologises for the oversight, brings water, and our dinner procedes. Pecan encrusted chicken over spinach salad is excellent, as is the Chicken and Mushroom fettucine. Pumpkin pie and chocolate sticky toffee pudding w/gelato were very good.These deserts can serve two, if you eat lightly.
This restaurant seems more interested in selling drinks than selling meals. I would call it a slightly upscale sports bar.There is a bar downstairs, and there is a large bar in the dining room staffed by young women in short black dresses. American football on all tv screens. We waited about 45 minutes for our food, after securing our waiter for ourselves. He was quite attentive during our meal, which was appreciated, but all in all it was difficult to rate the service here.
