It's an interesting place to eat, it seems there is always a table available, and they have a menu that almost anyone would like. Earl's seems to make tasty food and this was no exception. The service was quick and friendly and there were lots of happy hour options on sale. Great place with lots of choice for a casual... More

I am not an Earl's fan and this one is no exception. It feels as if it's trying very hard to be trendy but it can just be annoying. We were there on a Sunday night and the music was very loud. The menu was okay but we weren't interested in anything on the test menu. The food was fine,... More

Stopped in for lunch. Chose the Cajun chicken sandwich. Swapped French fries for mashed potatoes--good choice. Large sandwich with ample slices of chicken breast; large serving of mashed potatoes. Very enjoyable lunch at a reasonable price.

I visited this Earl's on Friday, February 17 for a business lunch with a group of colleagues. Service was fast and accommodating, menu options were extensive given this is a Test Kitchen location, and food was exceptional. The atmosphere was vibrant and classy, and noise levels (both music and background) were acceptable, allowing for easy conversation. I will back for... More

Seated quickly in huge booth, ordered cocktail's as they were $2 off of what price I have no idea! I had the chicken taco's that were so good but too wet, the waitress asked how they were & I told her. She appreciated the feedback, but asked if they doubled up the tortilla shells would I think that would help?... More

Had tomato soup, salad, chicken fettuccine and a burger. All quite average. More of an ambience place. I don't think we'd be back, because it was just ok, nothing more. We were expecting more flavour and pizazz.

Note to myself: Do not go to a sports bar when the Super Bowl is going on. So loud, I could not even hear ambulances outside. For kicks, I asked for a White Russian. What I got was a White Wuss at best. One could barely test the Kahlua and the vodka was nowhere to be found. Not going back.... More

We came to Earl's for a quick bite before seeing a movie. We were pleasantly surprised with their happy hour menu - wings, ribs, burger all under $5.00 and well drinks $3.00. The food was outstanding and our server was amazing. We'll definitely be back.

I visited Earls Test Kitchen as part of a business trip to Vancouver. It is a very lovely place situated right in the middle of downtown Vancouver and accessible on foot from all the major hotels in the area. I am not sure about car accessibility but I won't recommend it. It shows that the area gets super busy during... More

Staying in Granville Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Granville Street
Granville Street spans many, multiple city blocks and has become so fastidiously known for its nightclubs and watering holes that it's fondly nicknamed the city's 'Entertainment District.' Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular and lively, with young revelers taking to the streets in droves and keeping the party going until late. Granville Street, being mostly open to pedestrian-only traffic, has a healthy social life along its main thoroughfares, even outside of its cafes and pubs, spilling onto the sidewalks. The locals are chatty, the shops at its expansive Pacific Centre Mall are trendy, and the whole area seems to be on a sugar rush: in a good way. Exuberance and camaraderie classify this neighbourhood.
