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.

Good food, service was good and fast. Environment was nice though I would imagine it must be great later in the evening when people head over to drink!

Loved this place. We stopped in here after horseback riding. We were famished & thirsty. Service was prompt with our drinks served immediately. My husband ordered the bacon caesar which was an appetizer in itself. We went with the waiter's recommendation of the Burnt Ends which was the most tender beef we've had, very flavourful. We also had the shrimp... More

We ate here on Canada Day & we were able to get good seats at the window: what a great view from a restaurant! We ordered the nachos & fried pickles for appetizers. The nachos were huge! There were four of us and we could barely finish them. I ordered mac and cheese as my meal & it was delicious.... More

Food was ok. $4 for half a corn on the cob is overpriced in my book. Food was your typical pub fare. Wait staff was friendly. Probably wouldn't be my first choice, but not bad.

Could be the best burger I ever had. Lean but flavorful meat with gouda cheese and other fixings. I've had elk before in a little place in Wyoming several years ago, but this was better. The restaurant itself is typical western-theme decor. Its upstairs overlooking main drag. Australian waitress again!
