My wife and friends always make sure we visit Wild Bill's everytime we are in Banff. The location is excellent and the food is very good, especially the Elk burger. It's worth a visit.

I have never received such awful service in Banff. Living within an hours drive we have checked out quite a few places - do not go here!! The food took ages and the waitress was less than friendly (rude in fact).

BBQ pork rinds were very good. Bacon wrapped shrimp had tails on with bacon wrapped around them. Beyond odd. Beef Brisket was ok. Decent flavour. Corn bread was beyond dry. Service was slow and not the best. Probably would not return for dinner here again....More

You must have scratch at this place while in Banff. What fun! Karaoke and the bucking bull. Endless laughs and entertainment. Us Aussies loved it! Plus the drinks were not too expensive which was a nice change.

Went here 3 out of 4 nights. Karaoke on Tuesday then a great band the next two nights. Gun place. Good service at the stage side. $5 cover but worth it.
