If you happen to be town on Mon (10$ pizza) or Tues (10$ calzone) you need to give this place a try. Great atmosphere and delicious fresh food.

We stopped in to have some beer and the pulled pork nachos. Great service and a relaxing atmosphere in mid afternoon, mid week. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend you try this restaurant.

Really nice atmosphere and service, and had read such great things that we were looking forward to some delicious pizza. Unfortunately I have to agree with the reviewer that thought the pizza seemed like frozen pizza. The sauce was bland and the cheese greasy. The crust was thin and cracker-like. I really wanted to like it, but it just wasn't... More

Brought the family after a day a skiing. Service was friendly, the pizza was hot and the ingredients fresh. The added touch of chili oil and honey was excellent. Will be back and look forward to trying some of the other restaurants owner by this group the next time we are in town.

Lovely food and service in Banff. We've been coming to Banff for years and just stumbled upon this bliss. The bartenders were more than friendly and the pizza.... like O.M.G. Stop reading and go already.

This busy place has an upbeat vibe and great food/drinks on offer. I love hitting it up for a filling meal after a long day hiking or skiing and it never disappoints. Their beer list has excellent variety and I highly enjoy eating my pizza with honey and rosemary chili oil on the side! Awesome flavor additions. Keep on keepin... More

We visited Banff this summer, and stopped here twice on our trip because we liked it so much! We are back in town this week, and this was the first place we stopped for lunch. We love the bison pizza, and the Caesar salad with bison. It's a neat place to try local foods. I would recommend the Bear Street... More

I was recommend this place by a local who said they did the best pizza in town! I'd never had a calzone due to always preferring to have a standard pizza however on this night they had a $10 deal for calzones so I figured, why not give it a go. I tried the Hawaiian and it was amazing! The... More

This is a cozy venue. The service was fast, friendly and helpful. Came for lunch and had the primo Italian pizza. It was fantastic, beautiful crisp thin crust and an abundance of tasty toppings. The beer menu is large which makes it difficult to choose, but that's not a bad problem to have! Will be back soon!

Thank Robbybrown9
