Me and my boyfriend ate here after an eight hour flight and a 19 hour coach journey to get to Banff. Both of us were feeling super fussy before we got there, considering we had only been eating sandwiches. My boyfriend had a Chipotle salad which he said we amazing and I got the corn fritters and garlic mashed potato.... More

My wife and I went for a beer and an appetizer. We had good service and the food was really good. We talked to many locals and they advised that this is a really fun place at night. I personally would recommend this place for a quick lunch. I would love to go back in the evening and check out... More

Great service and great atmosphere. Food was good and reasonably priced. We had dinner then went elsewhere for drinks but they stamped us to come back later for free entry. When we went back there was a great band and a great atmosphere with a dance floor and we had a great night dancing the night away! We would definately... More

We had such fun just listening to the live music and enjoying the fun atmosphere here. The service was timely and the drinks were made to our specifications.

This is a place for wild cowboy partiers. We went on a Saturday night before the band. Service poor. Lots of staff mostly standing around.

we have been going to wild Bills for years but we went to have lunch Nov16 2016 and what a disappointment . it seems as if the new owners have decided that over cooked food slathered in poor bbq sauce was better than a rich beef stew. poor idea. the brisquet was very very dry.good way to sell beer though...

Good food, but there's much better places worth checking out instead. Got the ribs and they were good, the BBQ sauce is delicious. Fun place to drink but expensive

Really great food at an affordable cost. The service was fast and awesome...no waiting to be served, food came quickly and service with a smile! Loved the beer battered fries, mini-sliders and deep fried pickles! So yummy! Going to be frequent visitors to this place!

Went here with my husband after reading a recommendation in a guide book. Was worth a visit - the country and western bands were amazing and the atmosphere was euphoric. The food is typically western style and a table by the window means you can people watch on the high street. Definitely worth a visit.

Restaurant was touted as a "great place for music and views"and rated well in tourist information. Arrived at about 8:00pm Thursday and the place was empty and dingy. Smoked brisket was more fat than meat and the flavour was artificial. Wait staff was unfriendly and disgruntled. A real disappointment. Check the time schedule before you decide to make this your...
