We went to Wild Bills on the last night of our stay for the entertainment. It was a brilliant evening and the country-western band who performed were fantanstic - they had everyone up dancing. I would really recommend going if you fancy a relaxed night out.

Great atmosphere, great entertainment. I question the honesty of the bartender. A bunch of ladies drinking doubles should have started to feel a buzz by the end of the night... or taste the booze for that matter. Do you yourself a favour and stick to the bottled beverages -- unless you enjoy overpriced mix.

It is a large saloon food and drinks in one area then poker machines and a pool table and music in another area.Staff very helpful we... More

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
