We ate at Earl's and were happy with our food. The service was ok and the atmosphere was fine. It was nothing to write home about, but there was nothing that disappointed us either- it just did not stand out. I had a chicken curry over rice and was happy with my food. The portion was generous although a bit light on the meat and the appearance was what you would expect.

Our waitress was friendly but had never opened a bottle of wine before. We actually ordered 2 bottles through the course of our dinner and basically taught her how to operate a corkscrew. Not that this was bad in itself, but likely descriptive of how they train their staff. If I owned a restaurant, I would be sure that someone working there knew how to open a bottle of wine without making a show.

It was good, but I would likely not go back, rather favor the next door Joey Barlow- much better by miles and about the same price.

I met with a client here because of the out door patio. We found the place to be very clean. The prices were reasonable. The service was fast and not interrupted constantly by being asked if there was any thing else we'd like. We were in and out within an hour. It was great. Its an easy location to find as well as easy access.

Awesome service, great people, and superlative food. We had a great server,Denae, who was engaging, friendly, and attentive. The front staff were also excellent. The food was superb. Well displayed, tasty, flavourful, and hit. A great place for meeting up with friends. We had a both that wads part if the restaurant yet had privacy.

After a drive from a nearby airport area hotel, we found lots of free onsite parking. This restaurant itself had a dark ambiance of the kind we’d expect more from a pub. Our hostess led us to a quiet, almost even intimate, booth. Service was slow and casual, but attentive enough. We both got diet colas for drinks. For entrées, we ordered a top sirloin and salmon plate with sides of Caesar salads. Both dinners arrived as hot as we’d hoped and were prepared almost exactly as we’d requested. The fare wasn’t particularly remarkable, but it did hit the spot after a long day on the road in the Banff area. If we were staying again at an area hotel, we might explore other options, but we had no real complaints here.

I had fish tacos and my partner had roasted chicken that came with awesome mashed potatoes! Local pale ale and spinach artichoke dip was very good. Service was excellent. A little pricey but hey it's Canada. Walking distance to our hotel and much better than other chain restaurants in the area. Would eat there again.
