I have been to the Elk a number of times over the years, and it never disappoints!

Great atmosphere, and great beers. It is the place to go to watch a game!

The food is phenomenal, and I am a fan of their tomato soup and Elk and Bison burgers.

As I mentioned, I have been here like 100 times, and I have always been served well. The food has always been top. I have never left hungry or disappointed with either quality or service.

This is a great pub that always has some sport playing and great food. The only sad thing I can say is they changed up there meat platter to something less epic. Don’t let this stop you from stopping in to eat, drink and enjoy the atmosphere... our even just people watch from the windows at the passer byers.

Popped in for a meal. It was ok i suppose, nothing special, Good service though. The bar man was a bit off hand with us though when we went to sit at the bar after our meal.

My hubby & I are regular visitors to Banff & have tried many different places to eat & drink, the Elk started out really good, reasonably priced beers & food, good menu & food, typical fare is burgers, salads, steaks, fries, etc.

Service is always good & friendly.
However we have eaten there on a few occasions more recently when the food has been mediocre, quality not as good & arrives cold from the kitchen.
We will however go back & try again as there's always a good atmosphere & it's a good spot for people watching.
