My friends and I really enjoyed our dinner here. The waiter was helpful and friendly. The food was great! We got the artichoke dip appetizer and the four of us practically licked the dish clean! I ordered the bbq sliders sampler (chicken, brisket, pork). Personally I thought the chicken and pork were delicious but found the brisket somewhat lacking. Maybe... More

We were just passing by, saw the door and we got in the place. That particular day a Country band was going to play and the cover was $5 per person, which we gladly paid. We asked about the specialty of the place while looking at the menu, the response: the brisket, they put it for hours and hours on... More

I have only eaten here twice. I had the salmon (not sure if it is still on the menu) it was over cooked to the point where it had seized up, and had a crazy amount of bbq sauce on it. Pretty much inedible and really disrespectful to the fish that had to die to be put on that plate.... More

Went to banff with a bunch of friends as we did a late girly ski trip this year (BEST TIME TO GO!). Ate in some great places which I will review soon but the real reason I created a tripadvisor account is because of this 'hell hole' (how bad is that!!). Management are without a shadow of a doubt absolutely... More

Group of three in a fairly dead restaurant on a Saturday afternoon, we could barely get service. Ordered finger foods - nachos and fried pickles. The gooey cheese they advertised on their nachos? Must have gone to someone else ours were dry and bland. The fried pickles looked like they were dipped in a tempura batter (not the same as... More

We visited Wild Bills twice during our stay in Banff and ordered the same dish each time because we so enjoyed it on our first visit. However, the two experiences that we had at the restaurant/saloon were completely different. The first time was fantastic, the waitress was attentive and helpful. I had the flame grilled sirloin with beer battered fries... More

The food was pretty incredible and the service was really fast and friendly. It was a fun place to hang out after a long day of snowboarding. They had a live band which was really great entertainment while we waited for our food.

I have no idea why this place carries the adjective "legendary" in its name. Nothing on the offer deserves this attribute. Yes, the ribs are edible, but overdone - I've eaten much better ones pretty much everywhere else. The food is just average. Service is there but you have to chase after it. They don't seem very knowledgable about their... More

Huge place, not crowded, concerned as it was so empty. Constant flow of people. We had a burger and pulled pork sandwich. Lots of meat and yummy homemade soup, yum! Juicy burger with yummy fries. Had a window seat so could people watch on Main St. Friendly staff.
