First visit into Banff and wild bills was definately wild! A warm welcome by friendly staff, beer flowing like wine, and live music by a band called Kixxsin were amazing also.PLayed some great stuff. Only downside was that not many people were in , but they were still dancing and enjoying themselves. Wish could have visited more than once but... More

I fancied just having a look in here to see what it was like. I was put off by the "$5 please!" at the top of the stairs, but we paid up and went on in. It was a freezing -27 outside with a wind chill ontop so I didnt want to go out again. It was magic the band... More

Just spent a week in Banff and what a great time. Until visiting Wild Bills on Nov 13, 2014. Three of us were there to watch the band, only about 20 in. All was great until we asked for g&t. Then it kicked off. Back bar staff went very rude after we complained that gin was not good. They throw... More

Service good food good but not excellent. I had a elk burger which I was excited for as I had never eaten it before and it tasted sort of frozen.

I went the Wild Bill's for dinner. It wasn't our first choice. Couple other restaurants we wanted to go to, had long waiting times, so we ended up at Bill's. We both had soups and steaks. The food was average, as was the service. Next time we would rather wait at another restaurant, if we had to.

We came down from Saskatchewan for a weekend, and trust me when I say Saskatchewan girls know how to party country style. We obviously loved it here, the staff was great and the music had us dancing all night. There was a live band who we loved as well. We even somehow ended up back for Saturday, two nights in... More

Several restaurants in Banff are on the second floor overlooking the town. This has a western feel and all the staff was great. There is a large room for parties, a large bar area that looked like fun and the main room where we ate. The band was warming up for a party later that night and they sounded fantastic.... More

Came for dinner on a weekday during the high tourist season. Place was half empty, which made me wonder. Tall, skinny guy with blonde hair tied in a bun greeted us. We were a party of 5 and asked if we could get a table by the window. He responded by saying, that's not gonna happen. Presume that meant there... More

Our stagette party tried getting into here only to be turned away by the guy collecting the $5 admission. He told the bride and bridesmaid not to think they were getting in free because they were pretty - even though both ladies had their $5 firmly in hand. He then called around and had us banned from all the bars... More
