Hubs and I spent the day driving around Lake Louise, and all around Bow Valley Prkwy.( saw a bear that I could have touched if I'd rolled down my window🙏🤗) We had pizza day before, but we had read so many review about the pizza, Hubs decided to have it! Chili oil and honey really is a thing on pizza...... More

Well the pizza exceeded all expectations... before our pizza came our waitress asked if we had been there before, and as we hadn't she proceeded to explain their signature house dip... More

We had lunch here based on the reviews. One of the pizza is sweet and oilly. I never had a sweet pizza. But after this time, I could it is definitely not worth to try. We also ordered chicken wings which are no flavor at all. Good service.

Solid collection of foods on the menu. Friendly and helpful staff. A fun place to go and have some super food. Beer selection is pretty good as well.

One of our tour guides mentioned Bear Street Tavern and suggested we go on Monday night.Monday night is $10 pizza night on select pizzas. We had the Donair and the classic. Reading the ingredients for the Donair would make one hesitant -- a mound of fresh lettuce on top of a pizza -- really?? Try it. It is outstanding as... More

Nice casual time at the bar enjoyed 3 good Rutting ales..Ordered a Godfather pizza and pork belly mac and cheese. The pizza wasnt bad, wasnt great. The mac n cheese had a strange taste to it that I couldnt identify. Maybe its just me but I wasnt impressed much with the food

We went to get 10$ pizza and it was amazing -- places could easily drop on quality when offering a discount, but they did not! I got the Mediterranean pizza -- so delicious! The staff were super friendly and I really liked the vibe. Highly recommend!

Stopped for a late lunch travelling back to Calgary from Lake Louise with daughter. We were in Banff last fall and love Banff. Chose this spot through TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. We had the Mac and Cheese and Mediterranean pizza. Didn't love the pork belly in the mac and cheese but overall very good. Great atmosphere and service. Waitress... More
