Very good pizzas & beer options. Kids enjoyed the Mac & Cheese but it was a bit rich for them to finish. Location was good for walking about & atmosphere was friendly. The waiter could have been more knowledgeable about the menu.

This was my second visit to Bear Street Tavern and I would go back without a second thought next time I'm in Banff! They feature many creative pizzas and they are not shy with their toppings! Also, they have an extensive draught and bottle list!...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.
