Due to the damage, Tony Roma’s had to strip down and rebuild. They decided to use this opportunity to update and refurbish the entire restaurant. Their reconstruction took 23 months and the restaurant was re-opened on November 10th, 2018. The new and improved Tony Roma’s Banff features a “new menu, new look and new vibe.” The restaurant now offers a wide-open space with comfy chairs and ample seating room. They’ve installed modern looking decoration including cool light fixtures that give the illusion of flame jets. I like to think of it as ultra-modern steakhouse (or rib-house) meets family dining.
Their new menu does sound tantalizing, and who wouldn’t want to drop in for some of their famous ribs? Unfortunately, this was not the right time of day for ribs. Something else about this location intrigued me: they serve breakfast. I honestly didn’t know Tony Roma’s served breakfast.
I had the good fortune of being able to speak to the general manager, Jason Carruthers, while I sat down with my morning coffee. He told me, “There are only two Tony Roma’s in the world that serve breakfast. Tony Roma’s Banff, and Niagara Falls.” Two in the world? And I get to eat at one of them? I knew there was something special about that menu!
Jason also pointed out that Tony Roma’s is open for breakfast at 7 am during the winter, and 6 am in the summer with their a la carte menu and a summertime breakfast buffet. With hours like that, you have the whole day for your outdoor adventures!
