We went here on our first night in Banff after a long drive and wanted something straightforward for dinner. Earls seemed to fit the bill. There was a reasonable range to choose from, and we both went for by feed to suit our tastes. The food was decent and what I would expect of a mid range chain. The service... More

My wife and our two children had dinner here. Even though there wasn't a children's menu they were very accomodating by adapting the menu to suit.

One if the things that always gets me about some of the Earls in AB, including this one is that though kids are allowed, they aren't really welcome. It's far from a fancy restaurant, especially amoung some of the gems in Banff, but they have no high chairs and two boosters for a very large restaurant. There are some amazing... More

We are rather understanding and patient people but it got to be too much. Secondly there was numerous mixups because of the communication including garlic fries coming instead of garlic bread. Thirdly,... More

Tried to order food for takeout and was told that they are too busy. Never heard of this happening before at any restaurant, especially a large chain such as Earls? Not enough staff or unable to do their job? Would be weary of customer service if ever to dine here.

I tried an all day breakfast meal that had toast topped with jam, avocado and eggs any style. Served with bacon. The egg was well done and not over easy as I had requested. The bacon was no crispy, greasy and flaccid. The only thing worth eating were the potatoes, which was a whole potato that had been roasted and... More

Went mid week, for an evening meal. Place was pretty empty all evening. Both upstairs and downstairs. The staff were good, very helpful. Food was OK, but didn't wow us. Good selection of drinks

Earl's is a chain and we have been very happywitevrynoctinwehvevisited.Banff, Jasper, Edmonton & Red Deer Alberta, as well as those British Columbia. We were disappointed Banff''s was closed this trip for renovation. The decor differs in each, but the food, service and beer are great at all of them.
