Like any world-class alpine resort, Banff has its share of high-priced restaurants with killer views of the Canadian Rockies all year round. But if you’re looking for a bargain meal, there’s a premier sports bar at 119 Banff Avenue called the Elk & Oarsman Pub & Grill.
Unfortunately, the days of very favorable exchange rates for US dollars in Canada are over because of the weakening dollar globally, so pizzas for about $11 to 13 US ($12 to $14) that serve two are big enough for two diners, and should be a meal in itself. Or choose any of their wide variety of burgers and pub food, along with local draft beer and other Canadian brews.
A: 119 Banff Avenue (above LuluLemon) in the Kirby Lane Mall.
