We came here for some drinks and there was a live band on but we still didn't find the atmosphere to be all that amazing! There are better places in Banff.

Great service but food typical basic style consisting of burgers of all types - such as bison. Not especially tasty but nice enough.

GET THE Nachos! Tons of food and with a cold beer it is perfect. Make sure to ask for a window view to people watch from the second level.

There was a great selection of music and people which made it a nice location for a few drinks. Think we must have got there quite early to begin with as it was very quiet, but we returned later and it was much busier.

Since I'm from Colorado, I decided to have lunch at this Western themed place. Ordered an elk burger, med-rare and it came well done. After arguing with the waitress for at least 5min, she finally asked the chef to do one medium which was juicy and very good. You just can't over cook elk. Had a seat by the window... More

It is a place more for the younger set at night. We only had lunch there and it was very good but not excellent food. Service was very good and friendly. Sat by the window in the bar and watched the people on the street - we love doing that. Seemed like it would be fun to experience at night.

We decided to have an early dinner at Wild Bill's after reading about the place in a brochure about Banff. It was a Tuesday and the place was nearly empty. We ordered four entrees including two half racks of pork ribs and the Alberta beef ribs. Both the pork ribs were extremely salty and the beef ribs were awful, with... More

We went to Wild Bills for drinks and ended up staying much longer than we had intended, seduced by the live music and the jugs of Canadian. Had great fun, pulling some moves on the dance floor.

Friendly service, nice atmosphere. Had the nachos: barely any cheese at all and no sour cream. I wanted to send them back and regret not doing so. I ate the ones with cheese and left the rest. The waiter should have asked if everything was ok... Fried pickles were good. I wouldn't go back.
