“got there early...stayed till early”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Had a great time here, staff very pleasant and had a great time, mostly due to the band they had playing and some great people who were there as well. Stayed till early hours of the following morning. They have a mechanical bull 9 - 10 PM, lots of fun.

“Overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

My wife and I ate here after watching Burger Wars. Even though their elk burger didn't win, I thought it looked like the best one of the three. Man was I disappointed. The meat itself was alright, but the bun was a little dry as was the whole burger. It wasn't awful, just not at all worth what we paid for it. My wife wasn't blown away by the pulled pork either. Won't be back, despite the good service and wonderful window seat and view.

“Try the Elk Burger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Stopped in here for some liquid refreshments and an appetizer. It was great and enjoyed or break. Decided to return to try an Elk burger as we have never had one. Wow, we enjoyed it! The meat was lean and not greasy and cooked just right. The french fries really surprised us. Called beer battered fries, they too were delicious and not greasy. We would definitely recommend Wild Bill's for drinks and elk burgers!

“Great food, great view and good prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This became one of our favorite places while we were in Banff, the prices are reasonable, the staff is friendly and if you can get a window view it's a great place to pass a portion of the day.

“Great food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

My meal here was really tasty - one of the best I had during 10 day tour of the Rockies. It was the Bill's Hickory Smoked Beef Brisket. The best beef I have ever tasted! Don't miss it. Service friendly and swift. Nice atmosphere. Would love to go back!
