I only ever go there for their pulled pork sandwich. It is delicious. But the service is a bit below average.

I visited at the end of September 2014. A mid 60's male on his own. At 7.00 it's too early for the 9.30 show I but went to eat. I was not treated as a leper, but courtesy and service was lacking. If you're with a party of locals the banter appeared good, but on your own you are a... More

Australians are used to good meat and good beer, and Wild Bill's did not disappoint. Try the Elk burger and dirty rice. Local influence but great food cooked well at a fair price.

Wild bills has a bit of a tired look to it inside something that I think Bar Rescue would come in a nod clean up. That being said the food is very good. We had burgers with some great beer battered fries. Drinks are VERY reasonable our meals with 3 drinks was just over 40.00 which is pretty good for... More

Have dined here on numerous occasions for lunch. Casual bar atmosphere with Western artifacts throughout. I have had the loaded Nachos and Peyote burger. Both were well prepared and tasty. My husband had the special which was a 6 oz steak on a toasted bun. Very good and at a great price. The views are great of downtown Banff and... More

A girls weekend in Banff would not be complete without good food. Well Wild Bills did not disappoint! The service was outstanding, friendly and prompt. Each of us tried something different so we could all try some. So good! The menu has a lot of variety and the serving sizes were large, we all had food to take home after.... More

Although not expecting anything special, even the pub style sandwiches were a disappointment. Plain white buns, and only big scoops of dry meat. Don't waste your time or money on the food.

We picked this place just by walking by on the main street of Banff looking at menus. Wild Bill's seemed to have a decent menu with reasonable prices so up we went. The restaurant has a country western theme as the name would suggest. Actually the place turned out to be more than we expected. It is much bigger upstairs... More

Hostess and servers were disinterested and slow, seeming put out that we had reasonable needs--like water in addition to the drinks we ordered. We had to change tables because of a shaking floor which we have yet to understand. When the food FINALLY arrived--it was very disappointing! The burgers they brag about are nothing special at all, and with the... More

The night we were here there was a really good singer, who must've been hired for a tour group that was there, but he sang classic country tunes & created a great atmosphere! Food was good & all of our party enjoyed their food. We stayed to enjoy the tunes & beer :)
