We ate in the bar rather than the main restaurant and found there was a great atmosphere. All 6 of us were delighted with our testy meals from the varied (but not overly extensive) menu. The service was good and friendly. My only complaint would be a draughty door which kept allowing the freezing outside air to creep in.

I had eaten at the Earls in Whistler and loved it! And I was not disappointed when I visited the Earls in Banff! The food was great, the location is central, and the views were awesome! A great place to eat.

Nice bar area if your looking for a place better than a pub. Nice food menu. All up better than most Banff bars. Also the bar girl poured me very generous size glass of Cali Cab Sav x 3

Hi we ate here this evening and I had the Cajun chicken which is served with warm potato salad and bacon and a coleslaw and I have to say it hit the spot! Right amount and great mix of flavours for me. I've been to Banff many times and eaten in many establishments. Will defo be coming back
