We used to come here some years ago, so thought we'd try it again when back in Banff. It hasn't changed much. We almost walked by this second storey restaurant, as the street level entrance is easy to miss. It was not at all busy early on a Sunday evening, and we got a nice table by the window, looking...

Save this spot for a quick drink or if you're in the mood for a greasy cheap meal. Drinks served out of plastic cups. BBQ style food and limited menu. On the plus side - it's huge in there, and has a great space for live music.

We tried Wild Bill's many years ago, but have since found many other places to eat in Banff. Thought we'd give it another try this year and weren't disappointed! A great welcome from the staff, we were quickly seated & drinks brought. I had a cobb salad - which was perfect & the other half had the brisket with cheddar... More

We went on a quiet night so not much life in the restaurant. We went for the bison burgers and they were good. The small chicken platter was exactly that - small - it was a quarter chicken but I have never seen a chicken leg and thigh that small. Good flavor but it you are ordering that - go... More

Stopped in here for lunch while walking around Banff. Had a great lunch. Not many people there either which was nice. Staff was very friendly. They were setting up mechanical bull for that night, wish we could have returned for that!

We were a group of 58 visiting Banff for our conference and were in desperate need of a location to meet at the end of our scavenger hunt. After being turned away by a few establishments in the area we gave a last try to Wild Bill's and were greeted with open arms. If you have a large group, this... More

Whether it be entertainment, food or drinks this place has it all. Love the food, always enjoy the entertainment including the mechanical bull on Tuesdays. Service is 50/50 most times its great. Have one only had a couple slow ones.

Not sure about the food, so no comment here, but this is the place to be in Banff on a Tuesday night. Mechanical bull riding Tuesdays, along with Karaoke...such a simple concept and universally loved by all. No complaints...a fun night out!

29th Jan 2017, 5pm: The guy behind the bar couldn't even be bothered to look at us. He was too busy shouting to his friends nearby. When we said "can we order?" He say, "yeah why not?" but again, still talking or rather shouting to his friends. I had to ask to pay and just got the machine slapped down... More
