It is our most favourite restaurant in Calgary for a casual lunch or dinner! Always friendly people and food is always fresh as well!

Just want to share how great our evening was tonight in the lounge. From the very personable hostesses, Ashlyn & Jenna to our friendly server Jaci. The food was very tasty and our wine was delicious. We loved the decor and ambience in the lounge. We were visited by the Manager, Natasha, making her rounds ensuring customer satisfaction and adding... More

The location is in the heart of the 4th street action. This is the classic Earl's with a super staff. You can't go wrong here.

The waitresses were very polite, helpful and informative. They explained that there was a 16% gratuity added in for the tip. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant and sort of a business casual. Which is why we were there.

I rely on Earl's for its higher end style of food service, this location is ok, it falls below in terms of service compared to other locations such as that on McLeod Trail. For example, I asked the server 2 times for little ice in my drink, and she came back with it full of ice, then she proceeded to... More

I live in the neigbourhood and over the years have spent in the thousands of dollars at this place. I had not been in a couple of years and will never go back. The menu has shrunk to a boring fraction of its old self. There is nothing innovative or interesting/new on offer. Everything is way overpriced for the mediocre... More

Earls for many years has been our family "go to" restaurant primarily because it was always a family friendly place. Somewhere or somehow this has changed. Earls has turned trendy, and not in a good way for the family. Prices are high, in some cases a glass of wine can cost twice what a competitor up the street is charging.... More
