I have been here on a few occasions, food and service have always been good. They have a very good deal on pizza's on Sundays and Mondays, 10$ after 5pm! The pizzas are very tasty. If you do visit this restaurant be prepared for a little bit of a wait, It is one of the busiest restaurants in town. However,... More

I love the Bear Street Tavern for its Pizzas and Calzones. Especially on their cheap nights! (I believe this is on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays). All the pizza's/Calzones have been to die for. Always add the honey and chilli oil (i think that's what they are) on top and it makes the experience even better! Service is always good.

the girlfriend and I were unsure where to eat on a Sunday evening. Trip Advisor rated this place high so we said let's go. It was very busy and we were luckily seated at the only table. Now this place is quaint and close to one another when seated. BUT with all the locals present i felt we found a... More

Pizza is wonderful, portions are adequate if not huge- drinks are on point. Has a nice patio for summer, always a good choice to stop at for a decent bite or drinks in Banff. The Nachos and macaroni and cheese with pork belly are my favourites.

Delicious pizza, friendly staff and low key atmosphere. Had a daily pizza special so was very reasonable! 2 of us each got a pizza and ended up having enough to take away as well - could have shared! Would def recommend!

A fun place with a good selection of beers and a "pub food - elevated" menu. They have a number of thin crust pizza choices, including the one we tried "Big Bird" - with fresh tomato sauce, chicken, mozzarella, bacon, red onion, pesto, and goat cheese. They provide an interesting drizzle or dip for their pizzas; chilli infused oil and... More

This is the best place for pizza... ever!! I love the Wheeler, The Godfather and Big Bird. You also have to try the pizza with the chili oil and honey. It sounds crazy but it is so delicious and I am now hooked on adding it to my pizza. The Ceaser drink here is also unreal! I make sure to... More

My husband and I got two pizzas, we probably only needed one! We agreed our favourite pizza was the Big Bird. Their selection of beer is good paired with great service made for an enjoyable "date night".

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.
