The pizza was amazing. I'd go back to Banff just to have it again. We also had the testers of beer which was fun!

Busy, with great food - mostly pizzas. Very decent bar selection. Try the Bison Pizza...innovative and flavors blend together well.

We ordered the pulled pork nachos at the waitress's suggestion. They did a great job layering the cheese and fixings in this impressive mound of nachos served in a cast iron pan. The pulled pork was great, the cheese and toppings good as well, however the cherry tomatoes were strange and don't belong on nachos. This Texan gives it a... More

The pizza was decent, the beer was good, and overall it was a nice bar. On Sundays they have a special on selected pizzas and draft beer.

I come here pretty much every time I visit Banff (which is often living in Calgary) and never have a bad experience. The pizza is just phenomenal, plus the honey with the homemade chili oil....omg The gluten free crust here is superb! I love the vegetarian pizza the Wheeler Hut. Depending on the day of the week and time it... More

We came here on a Tuesday evening and it was packed. The wait for two wasn't bad and definitely worth it. They have a great beer menu with lots of delicious craft options. We shared the wheeler house pizza which was awesome. Great toppings and the honey/rosemary sauce mix for dipping was ridiculously good. Such a great idea. Despite being... More

Visited on 3 occasions during a two week ski holiday, this place was recommended by hotel receptionist and I'm so glad she recommended it. Yes it does get busy and if you are a couple you may have to wait half hour or so but the wait is worth it. Various pizza toppings to choose from, I was cautious about... More

This was the first time we visited this restaurant. It was a very good choice for lunch! The menu was diversified enough to suit our taste. Also, an excellent assortment of beers! Service was fast and friendly! The food was steaming hot and well presented! Good atmosphere! We spent about 2 hours savouring lunch and good conversation. Would recommend!
