Gastro Pub
We’re Banff’s living room. We share Banff’s real mountain lifestyle – active living by day, living actively by night. Banff Ave Brewing is a place where locals come to share the stories of their mountain experience and plan the next one, and where out-of-town visitors come to feel comfortable and soak in the real Banff. We're stoked to offer three different spaces, two of which you can reserve tables for:

The Pub
Get comfy and hunker down for après-whatever in Banff’s almost-secret hideaway. Enjoy great craft brews and all your pub favourites in a casual venue that’ll make you feel like a local, no matter where you’re from.

The Lodge
Climb on up to our newest casual dining spot with an easy-going approach. Anchor in for Banff’s legit take on Detroit-style deep-dish pizza (if you know, you know), along with pasta and small plates – perfect for sharing with the crew.

    Went to the restaurant they said to seat yourself even though we had a reservation, and then didn’t mention half the menu wasn’t available

    I arrived 5 minutes before our reservation and was advised to seat myself at one of the (numerous) empty tables. When my partner arrived 10 minutes later, I still had not been served. A couple of waiters looked at us but didn't approach our table. Another 10 minutes went by without any service! When we were walking out the door, a gentleman stated "I hope you enjoyed your meal" When I stated we waited 20 minutes without service he responded. "Oh. You should have flagged one of us down". Wow! We walked over to the Elk & Oarsman where the service was impeccable even though the pub was extremely busy. The menu was much more extensive (and cheaper) and the food was excellent!

    Worked in Banff for years, and been a long time fan of the Brew Pub since they openened more than 10 years ago. Food and beer are typically very good. Hadn't been in a while and this time the food we ordered was virtually inedible. Not sure if they've switched suppliers or just have an inexperienced kitchen staff but neither of our kids could eat more than 1/2 burgers, the 'fresh' pretzels we ordered were harder than the table top, it was as if they spilled the entire canister of seasoning salt on the fries, and my I couldn't chew, or even cut the beef on my beef dip as it was so rubbery and fatty. Their falgship beers are good, and the new seasonals were great. Hoping they get their kitchen sorted, but it will be a long while before we go back to attempt a meal again.

    Such a great hidden gem, go quick before everyone else figures it out. Had the place pretty much to ourselves on a Saturday night and received great service. Highlights were the pesto deep dish pizza and fried broccoli, although everything we ate and drank was great.

    Loved our experience dining here!! The service was impeccable and so attentive. It’s a perfect place to visit for a quick bite and drink. The patio seating seats you right over Banff ave and has immaculate views. Overall the food was good! Only thing is my fish and chips came out a little dark and the fries were somewhat stale. Aside from that, the drinks and rest of the food were delicious. Definitely consider visiting this brewery when in town!

    Loved, loved, loved this place on our first night in Banff. Enjoyed a couple local beers and the food was amazing. Enjoyed the Green curry chicken and fish and chips. And the view from the small terrace? Amazing. And the service? Amazing. The interior was a little dark but worth it if you are going for low-key, good food and beer!

    Set on the main avenue in Banff this brewpub is a great place for a cold beer and a typical pub-style meal. I had the burger which was well-cooked, well-presented and very tasty. The service was excellent and the selection of beers was interesting. We tried a flight first which is a really good way of tasting a number of different beers before choosing a favourite. The restaurant is upstairs wit a small but lively bar area on street level. As we were leaving they were setting up for some live music and the bar was busy so obviously a popular spot. A couple of days later we returned for a beer - the sours are really good - and sat in the bar. Service was excellent again. Highly recommended.

    We thought the beer selections were great and the food selections were great, too. Great location! What I didn't like was I asked the waitress for my fries to be extra crispy. She said all she can do it put it "into the machine" and they come out the way they come out. So...She can't ask the cooks or talk to them? I thought that was weird. I would go back, I just won't order the french fries.

    Fantastic happy hour specials on appetizers during our Friday night visit. Half off, and we got a bunch to share. The wings, pierogies, poutine and brussel sprouts were all fantastic. We preferred the apps to the main dishes, but everything was very good. All drinks were very good as well. We ate inside which was nice, but the balcony would have been great. We had a group of six so that was tough with it being a smaller balcony.

    The service was outstanding. Our server went above and beyond for us and it made our evening. The steak frites was cooked to perfection and the cut of steak was perfect and not fatty at all. Highly highly recommend going for their steak frites special night (which I believe it Tuesday).
