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 :)

we stayed in Banff and called in on the restaurant, we received great service, very attentive. The food was extremely good, considering this was a meat restaurant, it catered very well for my vegetarian wife. She was very happy. The waitress kept checking on us and it was a brilliant evening

Bills had a big overhaul this year and it's looking great! Each night usually has something on - from live bands to hypnotist shows, or even the comedy festival over winter - and there's a lot of room on the dance floor for line dancing or perhaps a ride on the bucking broncho. The name is based on the story... More

We ended up in this restaurant around 3 / 4 PM for an early dinner .... Te food was OK and clearly we didn't have the opportunity to sample the atmosphere of the place as we were "in between" services. The meat was good and the starters (Fired pickles) very good. The service was OK, That being said nothing memorable.

We were looking for a quick meal on our way out of town, and this was a good option. It's very large, and I think probably takes on a party atmosphere at night. We ate early in the evening, and the service was attentive, the food fine. Nothing remarkable, but a solid choice at a reasonable-enough price.
