I feel like a broken record, but once again the Stewart Creek F&B team did an amazing job. The service was outstanding and the food delish! I tried the pork belly appy, totally worth it, and I don't even like polenta! Now maybe I do ;-)

About the restaurant
A small retro diner space with a big personality. Pull up a barstool, but get here fast - there's only 45 of them! Eddie loves burgers more than most, and just as much as you. Alberta beef is his favorite, washed down with a milkshake. Come by, watch the game, bring the kids, have a burger, send the kids home, have a trashcan, watch another game, have another burger and have a great time! We take limited reservations.
.
If you do not see your time join our online waitlist or come on in, we will always find you a spot.
Open 7 days a week from lunch until late.

Pizzeria
Banff
About the restaurant
Banff's best pizza, as seen on You Gotta Eat Here. Our signature pizzas, sandwiches & cast iron specialties will satisfy any hungry Banff adventurer. Make yourself at home in a cozy booth and enjoy a beer, or a bear sized cocktail and finish with a ridiculously good pizza. Our dog-friendly courtyard patio is the perfect place to soak up the sun with your furry friend. Come join us for lunch, dinner, drinks, or all of the above! Children are most welcome. Take out available.

We sat at the bar, and Tom and Maddie were our bartenders. They were informative, helpful, and answered any questions we have. Service was great. Food was good. We did the Tuesday special margaritas and calzones.

The food is tasty and well-presented. It's a small Bistro so don't expect a fancy restaurant. Our service was great and prompt. We will definitely return and will recommend it to others

The food was great, and the service was amazing! The restaurant wasn’t overly noisy . Met there for a business meeting and we could very easily talk to each other.
