We are lucky to meet their Wednesday special $0.89/pc wings. Actually, we are not too hungry after late lunch in Banff. They have small pool, darting, board game for you with your food and drinks. No minor after 9pm.

The lounge was very busy, our waitress was great, always smiling. She came back and forth always letting us know what was going on. I give a lot of credit to the waitresses for keeping the busy place in order. 👍
