The food and service was very good. The only thing we did not like was the restaurant is extremely noisy and very difficult to carry on a conversation otherwise we enjoyed ourselves.

I had a steak. The 8 oz. One and I am sure I got about 4oz steak and about a dozen skinny fries. My husband took my piece of bread because I think there was garlic in it which my stomach cant absorb it. He was shocked at how little I had. My birthday dinner was a flopp. The others dinner was not bad. Good waitress

We have had such great experiences at Earl's. It is our go to place for celebrations and date nights. The menu is varied and reasonable and staff attentive without being annoying!! We highly recommend this reataurant. 😊

I love earls, this is the first time I’ve ever had anything negative to say. I brought my mom for her 50th surprise birthday, and it was really upsetting. The hostess asked us when we got to the door if it was for the 50th surprise birthday party, so my mom knew exactly what was happening. I was also told that the restaurant doesn’t do reservations, which I found to be strange when we got there and we did in fact have a table for ten reserved. The food as always was incredible at least.

The food is excellent the service was great but the place is way too loud and the seating is not very comfortable unless you get to sit in the covered patio area which was not an option for the reservation. I would still recommend to a friend because of how good the food is though.

My husband and I went to meet with some relatives and were feeling a bit tired when we left home but once we were seated and connecting with everyone there we both felt energized! Our relatives tried a new menu item each and I did as well...everyone loved what they had and our waiter, Dario was very attentive to us and did a wonderful job taking care of us!! It was a wonderful visit and felt very well taken care of!!

It was our best "Earl's" experience yet. We had a booth where we could actually hear each other in conversation! The steaks were perfect!

We had made our reservation ahead of time for 5:45 and I had written in it that we had 3 children and 2 adults. We arrived at 5:40 and they checked us in and we were informed it shouldn’t be too long. We waited standing in the doorway for til 6:00, 20 minutes, I finally asked if something had happened with our reservation. The hostess told me they were just waiting for a table of five to open up and didn’t have a time available. I told her we can squish at a space meant for four. We waited close to another ten minutes, thankfully a spot on the bench had opened up so the kids could sit. We thought the wait would be worth the food, and the kids foods was great and our appetizers were nice, the chilli chicken, but our mains were mediocre at best. My chicken was so dry that I only ended up eating half of it, and my husbands burger did not impress. I was drinking the Prosecco and when a server had dropped off our food at asked if we needed anything else I had barely gotten the word “Yes” out before she turned and walked away without any eye contact. Our server himself was quite nice and for how the restaurant is run did a nice job. But overall all the wait for mediocre food, the extremely loud and harried servers who don’t pay attention and their reservation system that someone includes just “waiting for a table to open” we definitely won’t be returning.

We were seated as per our request. Window seat in the quieter area of the restaurant. The food was good, priced reasonable. We were fortunate to have an exceptional server named Katie. Very friendly, took the time to discuss the menu and had the time for some discussion. Didn’t feel rushed on a night where there was a demand.
Our server made our night complete.

Just ok. The food was not great...mediocre at best...we had a reservation for 9, but 2 cancelled. The waitress still tried to squeeze us on a small table, with one guest at the end of the table and absolutely no room for a high chair we required. She seemed upset when I requested a bigger table...

We had a wonderful dinner at Earls. We had to wait a few minutes for our table and were served a complimentary glass of wine while we waited. Our server was delightful. Dinner was timely and delicious.

Hostess and server were very welcoming and accommodating. Our server Alissa was very friendly and very good at her job.
We only came here because we had a $100 gift card.
We were fortunate to be seated in the covered patio where the noise level was acceptable. Would never want to be seated in the main section of the restaurant if you were planning on conversing with your table mates. As the evening progressed, they needed to accommodate a large group and suddenly we felt quite squished as they set up a long table next to our booth and the servers could barely pass through. We were glad that we did not linger for dessert and coffee.
The red wine from Quail’s gate was a good choice but the mojito was very watered down. The food was okay. The calamari was good with a nice light batter. The asparagus was very good. The rice was a bit on the chewy dry side as if it sat too long in the open. The coconut shrimp was just okay.

Food and service was good, the only complaint is the tables were extremely close together, the table behind us couldn’t get in or out without hitting us, one guy taking off his jacket hit me, way to close together

The waitress was really nice. It was my birthday so I got a steak and lobster combo. The portions were small, which I think if they made them bigger and the price slightly higher to compensate, I’d feel more satisfied. Otherwise the food was good. Got two desserts since it was my birthday, thanks to the waitress

The kitchen was very accommodating. My husband and I do keto,so no sugars or starches, the kitchen gave us some changes to our meal that fit perfectly for us. Its hard to fund a restaurant in Kamloops that accommodates keto - so well done Earls! Thanks for making out anniversary dinner awesome 😁

Great food, great service, but under our table was a real mess; crayons, napkins, straws, just a real mess.
Have never seen this EARLS in such a mess.
Am still coming back though.

Asked for 4 of 6 peppers for the king poa bowl. No peppers at all. Wife asked for cajun tofu. No cajun. Other than that everything was great. Service was exceptional. Manager was apologetic and took off my entire meal off the bill which wasn't expected. We will go back for sure. Small error.

This is one of our usual stops for a nice meal out in Kamloops. Despite being a chain restaurant, it’s a good time, good vibe and fun menu. On this particular night it was really busy and they didn’t have a table for 5 as I requested though my OpenTable reservation, but hey we made it work. Waiter was great and lots of action on the floor.
