Reviewed 25 August 2014

This restaurant has amazing food and many gluten free options. The pizza is the best I have ever eaten, and the atmosphere was very welcoming.

Reviewed 24 August 2014

Thank you for making amazing pizza that I could enjoy and regular pizza that my family loved as well. Fun atmosphere for both locals and visitors ... there is a reason this place is popular. On Thursday night's you can bring a bottle of your own favourite wine !

“Great place for a beer and pizza”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We ate at Bear Street Tavern due to the rating on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The beer was great-nice selection of local brews. The pizza was definitely filled with unique ingredients. And adding the chili oil and honey made them fabulous. Definitely not what you can get anywhere else. We ate outside which really made it delightful. It is just off the main street so it isn't quite as busy as some of the places "in town" A definite go to place while in Banff.

“A gem of a discovery !!!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Tucked away on a back street in Banff is The Bear Street Tavern. By its name we did not expect much when we went there for a casual dinner. It is a very charming restaurant/tavern .... lots of log beams, ambient lighting and atmosphere. We did not have a reservation and the place was packed so we took 3 seats at the bar. The Bartender was very friendly and got us drinks right away. He was also able to give us suggestions for dinner. There is a very creative selection of Pizza - which is their specialty - however, there are other choices on the menu. We each chose a pizza. All of their pizza's are made to order and baked in a wood oven. Mine was the Wheeler pizza with wild mushrooms and pesto. There was a bit of a wait but when they arrived they were absolutely delicious. The bartender also provided a special oil to put on them and also honey!!! My son tried the honey and really liked it on the pizza - who would have guessed. The price was reasonable for each pizza and we ended up taking some back in a To Go box. We had it for lunch while hiking the next day and it was just as good cold!!
