The restaurant was filling up quickly when we arrived at 6 on a Sunday night. The atmosphere was positive. I found the camaraderie amongst the staff very positive, with no air of arrogance. I found everyone hard working and trying to serve their customers well. I was also thankful for pizza specials which were only $10 for some select pizzas. I was also able to order gluten free pizza! Great atmosphere, good food. Come early if you don't want to wait!

My friend and I went here and ordered a couple pizzas and their bread pudding. Everything was so delicious. The staff were really friendly, the service was prompt and the prices were reasonable.

We wanted to book a table of 11 for a friends b-day, which they wouldn't allow because they dont take reservations.
When we got there, of cause we had to wait for a table as this is a busy place. Hostess said wait would be around 15 min. Thats why we didn't go for a drink near by. We waited out front. 11 people. After 40 (!!!) min they had a table for us.
The pizza were yummi to bad they dont offer there sandwiches for dinner too!
Cocktails need improvement, beer list nice...
Would go again, just not with a bigger party.

This place is just fantastic. I had a grilled cheese with potato leek soup for lunch for $11!!!! Honestly, it might be the best grilled cheese I ever had, a mix of brie, gouda and pesto served with an incredible tomato relish. I thought the pesto would be overpowering, but it was fragrant and fresh and really melded with the cheese. The bread is crunchy and chewy - nothing soggy and not too oily. The staff is great, a bit of a wait but totally worth it. My grandmother had a beef sandwich and was very impressed.

In banff, this place is a bargain and really incredible food.

Fabulous wood oven pizzas, and lots of specials on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesday, look out for the $9 Steins and $10 pizza special what a bargain!
