I was shocked when I went to order a drink at this Earls, not only did they not have certain drinks, but they were more expensive than other Earls I frequent. Furthermore, I was totally appalled that many meals were between $3-10 more per meal than other Earls. I was sad to be honest, and felt a bit ripped off.... More

We were at Earls last night, and had an amazing experience. We were there with a large group since we were in town for an Atom Hockey Tournament. There were about 40 of us, including at least 20 kids ranging in age from 6-15. We had a 5:30 pm reservation and the tables were ready, with all of the kids... More

We stopped in here as we were spending a rest day shopping instead of skiing. The food was awesome and the wait staff were incredible. It was the week between Christmas and New Years and it was full but we never felt crowded or forgotten!! We wanted to bring the rest of our friends back and just ran out of... More

On a recommendation from some Canadian friends we had dinner at Earls while on a skiing holiday in Banff and have to say it was the best meal we had in town. The atmosphere was really nice and the waitress was polite and efficient. Our 2 daughters split a chilli chicken with rice and wontons, my son had a pizza... More

Our most favourite restaurant in Banff. Great food and atmosphere. We bought a couple of your beer glasses and we fondly think of this place whenever we use them.

My girlfriend and I were visiting Banff for a ski trip and relaxing weekend. We went to earls and ordered dynamite rolls to start which were great. We then ordered the Curry and a Burger each which we thoroughly enjoyed. I drank the Saskatoon Czech Pilzner, which was excellent! Will be back soon

Earls may be a chain, but it doesn't have that feel to it and the food is consistently good. It is not fine dining, but what they do they do very well. The Caesar salad and Better Cheddar Burger hit the spot after a long day.

Earls makes fantastic burgers. So big we share 1. The pizzas are delicious. Recommend the simple Margarita, just cheese and tomato.

Steaks were great. Prices were fair Friendly staff but lousy service. Ordered some sushi and they didn't bring chopsticks until we asked when only two pieces left. Additionally, ordered steaks and they brought us steak knives only after we asked. Foreign staff who are friendly but obviously have little experience with restaurants.
