A friend of ours recommended The Bear Street Tavern. He ate here 4 times during of a 5 day trip to Banff! We recommend The Wheeler Hut and The Godfather. They were the favorites at our table!

Food stops at 900 pm wtf? Drinks continue? Thin crust are okay nothing to write home about. Service is acceptable I suppose.

Good experience overall - my husband and I shared the pulled pork nachos and an excellent gluten free pizza. Fun food, generous servings that we weren't able to finish. Good selection of beers and cocktails and excellent service.
