The food was excellent, the set up was comfortable and the service was great. I accidentally brought peanuts form one side of the restaurant to the non-peanut side and the waitress impressed me when scolded me with such class. Well, I brought the peanuts over on purpose, I just didn't know there was a non-peanut side to the place. She... More

For a quaint little place it was not what we expected. The wall outside says Steak, Mexican, Ribs, Chicken... But it is a western styled mexican restaurant. The surf and turf was the biggest serving with the cheapest price. The ribs looked like they came off a piglet. Not worth the cost. A table of 5 adults and one kid.... More

Magpie & Stump is a Tex-Mexican type restaurant. It's quite rustic for atmosphere. The nachos are enjoyable, with options to add toppings if you want to spice things up. The cocktails are refreshing.

My family enjoyed a wonderful lunch here. Ambience is great and the taco salad delicious. Even better when you can enjoy a Margarita before strolling down Banff Ave.

the atmosphere is great, music is a bit loud, assortment of seating arrangements, great service, LARGE portions of freshly made Mexican inspired food, right downtown. Ok, the outside may look daunting, but inside is like having dinner with a bunch of friends. Locals eat here, so that says something. Prices are not bad for Banff and are offset with freshness...

Visiting from Orlando, FL. Had a scare when it came to getting a hotel the night we arrived (See my Fox Hotel Review) and it was late when we finally ventured out. Had a 16 year old with is and found out quickly that we couldn't have her in the bars/restaurants?? Odd Canada, why is it assumed that we would... More

We went to Magpie and Stump for dinner. The restaurant was packed. It was taco Tuesday so tacos were on special. There were 4 of us dining. One person had the tacos and said they were good. Two others had fajitas and they said they were decorous. I had the fish tacos. The fish tacos barely had any fish in... More

One of the highlights of our annual pilgrimage to Banff and the one bar in downtown Banff that never fails to deliver. It doesn't matter if you bag yourself a table of pull up a stool at the bar , this is one of the best bars in Banff. And judging buy the line up at the door , not... More
