We used to hit up this Earl's location all the time, and for years,it was usually pretty good. The last time we went there for lunch, our waiter was less than enthusiastic, the restaurant was 1/2 full (Sunday afternoon) & it took 45+ min for two appetizers, which ended up coming to us COLD. The waiter made all kinds of excuses about the wait, the food etc. We literally got up & walked out, and will never go back. Horrible service, which is too bad because the selection of beer is great, and the choices on the menu are great.

Nice decor & great atmosphere but in general overpriced for what it is & not too impressive. Decent wine list, and great drink menu, but the food was nothing to get excited about. I ordered the chicken pasta with black beans and tomato. The presentation was promising, but once I got a mouthful of this greasy mess, it became very unappetizing and left most of my meal to soak in it's sea of orange grease. The other diner I was with ordered the Parmesan crusted chicken with spaghetti, and wasn't too impressed either. Veggies, that consisted of oily carrot, celery, and onion cut into flimsy little pieces, and the pasta was reminiscent of a Michelina’s microwave dinner. On the other hand, the warm bread they bring out pre-meal, which is accompanied by a sweet balsamic reduction, a fruity olive oil, and a sprinkle of fresh herbs for dipping was lovely. The service was slow, but our waiter was friendly. Oh, and if you’re a vegetarian there is a very limited selection for you. Overall, next time we want Italian in Langley, the Olive Garden across the street is where we will be headed.
