It was fresh and tasted good. Wish they had a place to sit and enjoy a beaver tail. It's hard to find parking because hotel beside them burned down so the road is closed. We had to walk few blocks to get to it.

One of the quintessential Canadian treats Beavertails is definitely worth a try when visiting Banff! I recommend getting 2 flavours (they split them like a half and half pizza) so you can try a few different ones. My faves are the Skorr Cheesecake and the Maple, but the others are all great as well. My best advice though is split... More

Tourists line up like crazy for this place but personally I prefer the candy and chocolate shops. Beaver tails are very sweet, the oreo one is good but I've never been able to finish it.

My kids enjoyed the many choices at beaver tails. Messy I would be no Che to have a fork and knife but still super yummy.

On Sunday, 25 Sept. I stopped at a Beaver Tail outlet and got the Apple & Cinnamon Beaver Tail. It’s just as messy as everyone says. I’m not a big fan. I think I would rather have doughnuts.

We'd heard about Beavers Tails before visiting Canada. When we spotted it in Banff we had to try it. We thought we'd have the option of creating our own beaver tail, as in deciding what went on it, however it turns out there is a menu with about 8 options. I went for the cinnamon and spiced apple. The first... More

Had a tail as a shared snack. Actually really good. Fast friendly service and clean place. Would like for it to have more options and even options like a pizza tail (had them in Costa Rica ) but small selection but again nothing wrong it was really good.

Very touristy and crowded, especially in summer. But they do serve good beaver tails. This place exudes cliche Canadiana... so stop by for a selfie in front of the shop with a big ol' beaver tail in hand!

We popped in here as we were looking for a snack, but really not impressed with this over sweet greasy doughy things that they sell here. Avoid this place.

The Beaver Tail is a unique pastry snack. A deep fried dough with a variety of toppings. For mine it was Canadian Maple spread. It is a great snack as a reward after a long hike.
