The Earls near Banker's Hall was fabulous. We haven't been to any other Earls, but we very much enjoyed our stay here. The calamari was the best any of us had ever had- ever. It almost makes me never want to order it anywhere else. I had the sweet potato fries which were excellent and the Chicken, Brie and Fig Sandwich on ciabatta bread- Mmmmmm! For downtown Calgary this wasn't too expensive, and it was somewhat 'Kid-Friendly' compared to the other restaurants that wouldn't even seat us. We just grabbed a big booth and were fine. No boosters, no highchairs as with most the other restaurants in this area, but at least they didn't turn us away!!

I remembered Earls as a great chain when we lived in Calgary so this was my choice to go. We went on the Thursday just before Stampede started, it was very busy and crowded and happy hour... We ordered the happy specials... Let me tell you the boys had the Mango Dynamite Roll and loved it. The only thing that was on a hit was the Nachos and the waitress warned us but we ordered anyway... Should have listened to her. I had the Lobster/Shrimp Roll and it was delicious.
Overall it was a great experience and we went back the next time for appetizers again. The boys then went for lunch the next day. We are not the kind of people that repeat restaurants unless they are great!

The service here was wonderful. Quick, friendly, and all around fantastic. Our server, Julie, was knowledgable and respectable. The pork buns were a top menu item and they had plenty of vegan options available as well. Cocktails were delicious including my favorite- white peach Bellini. All in all I would definitely make it a point to come back next time I'm in town.

My wife and I ate a delightful lunch at Earls in downtown Calgary, AB. The location is perfect 8th Avenue and 3rd Street. Our server Carly was very sweet and had a nice personality too. We had a Moscow Mule which was good, but the ginger beer they used was a little weak. My wife had the Bronx Burger with fry's and that was excellent. We asked for crispy fry's and they might not have been as crisp as we like but they were very good. The hamburger with 3 large onion rigs was delicious too. I had the Fig, Brie & Chicken sandwich which I ordered with Clam Chowder. The soup was very good with lots of clams and bacon, the sandwich was full of great flavors that exploded in your mouth and made you smile. This Earls was a must stop to eat at. We'd been away for almost a month and this was our first trip to Earl's, maybe we should have tried an Earls before this. This location is perfect for people watching too.

My husband and I stayed a few days in Calgary before heading home after a great holiday in Canada.
On our last day we found Earls Restaurant in Bankers Hall Downtown. Wish we had found it earlier. We were made welcome by the staff on our arrival for dinner that night.
The food was excellent. Our server Crystal was a delight. We also met another server can't remember his name but he was coming to Scotland for a wedding. He was a proper gentleman.
Excellent food and service. Thank you all very much.
