Featured on the popular Food Network TV show You Gotta Eat Here, this trend-setting restaurant promises “bear sized cocktails, ridiculously good pizza and tavern classics to satisfy any hungry Banff adventurer.” The funky décor features panelled walls inset with mountain sport murals, wood floors and furnishings, counter seats and tables for two to 15, and an open-to-view kitchen.

There are unique bottled boutique beers and regional brews on tap. In summer, the garden courtyard patio offers respite a block from bustling Banff Avenue. Check online for food and drink specials Sunday to Tuesday, and Thursday.
