We came here on Valentine's Day expecting it to be full but we were able to get a table with no wait. The interior is very colourful and unique. We shared a half order of nachos which was good but $2/topping is a bit pricey. The popcorn shrimp tacos were just okay, they were a bit bland. The menu is... More

We keep coming back here for the great vibe and drinks; love the restaurant's look & atmosphere. Food is decent as well and they have specials on several nights. Lots of tequilla options! Always seems busy, but you put your name on the list and they text you when you're table is almost ready. Nothing fancy, but a great place... More

The Magpie and Stump offers a solid Mexican experience with the food being well portioned and full of the classic Mexican flavours throughout the traditional menu. The place offers great food and drink specials with the special of the night for us being $5 or less margaritas from memory, a very good deal! The atmosphere of this restaurant is loud... More

My husband and I have been coming here for 5 years now. We celebrated here after our engagement so it's a special place for us. This place is always busy when we've gone. They don't take reservations so go anticipating a wait time if you are a larger party. Drinks are always good, lots of variety to choose from. The... More

We stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night during a weekend getaway to Banff. Although you have to wait for a table, it's totally worth it. The drinks are so good. It would be far too easy to have too much to drink here. We had daiquiris - the sour raspberry and the wild cherry - Yum! We also... More

A great place to grab a drink and talk after a long day. The 750 gold Margaritas are great, not to sweet and the perfect price. Staff is friendly, restrooms clean and getting a spot at the bar is super easy.

Always love the food and great friendly service at Magpie and Stump when we visit Banff! As usual, the food was fantastic, the service was great and the drinks even better! The kids enjoyed their kids tacos, the kids colouring pages and the virgin margaritas! Will definitely be back again next time we're in Banff.

Our table of 6 was looking forward to eat here for lunch because of the reputation, unique building and quirky decoration. The ambiance did not disappoint but unfortunately most other aspects did. The worst offense was that the food, although well plated and with fresh ingredients, was vastly under-seasoned by all accounts at the table from the chips & guac... More
