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!

I love the atmosphere and especially the wings. The prices are very reasonable for Banff. I'll still go there every time I visit.

Minors are not allowed because they have a handful of slot machines. The place was spacious and empty when I was there. Pulled pork was average at best and half a corn on the cob wasn't much of a side dish.

The service was great, the beer was cold, and the food was just ok. It is your typical pubfare. The pub is nicely decorated with authentic western flair, and there is a small balcony overlooking Banff Avenus which is great for people watching while you eat.

The name of the place would typically not draw us in, but we were out walking and the country music coming out the open window did. We had a couple of glasses of wine and a couple of beers and the prices were amongst the best in Banff. Modern and clean rest rooms. The Brent Lee Band was amazing. Great... More

Not knowing where. To eat lunch we chose Wild Bills. My husband ordered the Barbecue Beef which is smoked beef onions and cheese on a bun that was ok and I got the Cesar Salad that was fine. Not great average Think I would try Tony Roma's next.

We were in Banff ended up eating here twice. We saw this restaurant on the show "Burger Wars" where they entered their Elk burger into the competition. They didn't win, but we still wanted to try it. The first day we went we had the Elk burger, fries pickles, and the bacon wrapped shrimp. All were incredibly delicious. I loved... More

They have great live entertainment. If you are into live music this is the place to go. Gives you that country feel. Food is good and you can get up and 2 step or just dance to your own style!!

We went when it wasn't really busy, early season early evening. No live music that night but we went because we were hungry, not for entertainment. Not disappointed, I would go back just for the food and beer. Service was good, wish I was staying longer so I could go back again and make a night of it, the mechanical... More
