After a day filled with sweat, sore feet and a scraped knee it felt good to ascend to the second floor of the building and enter Wild Bill's. The decor fits the establishments name and the place itself is quite big. There's a restaurant part, a dance floor and a stage where, to our great luck, a live band was... More

After a long day hiking and traveling we were all hungry bordering on hangry. Wild Bill's had a 10 minute wait but a nice bar with windows open to the street that kept us happy with the view. Elkburgers, chicken and ribs were served and ravaged. We all left full and ready to rest up for the next day. Service... More

The first time I tried to use Wild Bill's was on an evening after 9.30. We were told it was $5 each to get in as there was a band yet the place was clearly empty. We declined as we only wanted a quick drink. We went again the next day for lunch and again it was empty. I asked... More

Sadly, this 'legendary' eatery is anything but. Service was just ok but the food was absolutely terrible and I'm pretty easy to please, especially when I'm starving. The burgers are only offered well-done and were clearly pre-frozen,thin,rubbery and so dry that we didn't even eat our meals. Server was apologetic but not his fault as he clearly didn't cook the...

My wife and I went for dinner. Place was empty, but we were told there was a 20 minute wait. We sat in the back bar and watched a group of 4 that came in after us get seated before us. When I went to ask when we would be seated I was told it would be 30 minutes. I... More

We stopped by for lunch. The place is upstairs and we ordered the Avocado chicken sandwich on cimbalta brea. This I had with beer fried French fries that were very good. Service was good and this spot hit the mark.

We had two couples looking for a place to eat on a Friday night at around 7 pm. Tough thing to do but Wild Bill's had a table for us and Ellie was our server. We ordered 3 pulled pork sandwiches and 1 hamburger. Two people had the corn soup and two had salads. Everyone liked the food and the... More

Huge wild west saloon. After 22.00 the party starts with karaoke, drinks, bull rides. A super evening, which you do not want to miss

My bad - I fell for it. Thought it might be fun but I was very wrong. Met at the door by three bouncers looking for a cover charge for the comedy act that was appearing in an hour. OK, I'll give it a try. Surprised it was a comedy act in a legendary saloon? Hardly anyone was in there... More

Loved Wild Bill's for great food and the casual western style so famous in Calgary (Stampede history and all). Love that the windows are all open on a nice day but be aware there is no elevator and the bar is on the second floor with a staircase to climb (hand rails on it with a landing between the two...
