Have eaten pizza here many times and it has never disappointed me! First place they have suggested honey drizzled across my pizza! Staff are very friendly also !

Serving really good pizza and beers. It is quite difficult to get and always booked up so advise to book a table. We ate on the terrace outside and really enjoyed our meal. Nice casual restaurant with a good vibe.

A very popular tavern for good reason. If all servers are as friendly and knowledgeable as the bartender Alex, then you can't go wrong. Excellent recommendations for beer and the pizza is simply delicious.

Nice place for lunch during the day after some morning hiking. We only had pizzas and not sandwiches, but that part of the menu looked good too!

Had some time to kill, so decided to check this place out for a drink or two. We ordered some beer samplers and had a good time.Would visit this place again!

I find the thin crust too hard and crunchy. Some topping combinations didn’t go well, for example the olives they use is overpowering and very sour.

For families, for adults, for everyone. Like most restaurants and bars in Banff, all are welcome and all are catered for. They serve alcohol, they have sports on the TV but it is not exclusively for people wanting those... More

I don't know for sure but suspect a busy and popular restaurant like this in Banff WOULD have a gluten-free option. However, to be sure probably best to contact them directly for your answer.
