Not bad

I felt like some beef for lunch and so my wife and I tried this "saloon". The food was okay. The service was painfully slow.

We got into banff late and was just walking down the street and smelt BBQ, well had to check it out...it's upstairs and it's large up there. Menu was good with lots of choices. Our meals were great, good size portions and tastes. Didn't stay for any entertainment because we were tired, but I assume it would be very good.

I always come here for karaoke night, the audio equipment is pristine and is the best sounding stage with 2 mics, and an tv in the middle. the staff is friendly, and there are 3 full bars, so if one or 2 is busy there is an back bar just past the VLT's. I just found out that when your... More

We originally went for the meal – which was wonderful – smoked salmon – cooked perfectly and very tasty. But we also scored a live band and entertainer on the Saturday night which was absolutely fantastic – great for dancing. Frank the bar manager was very helpful and the wait staff were efficient and quite obliging. The entertainment provided by... More

I really enjoyed my experience at Wild Bills because of its style, laid back attitude and quality of food. The service was brilliant, extremely helpful and accommodating in my every need while at the establishment. The vibe of the place was very American, lots of locals in cowboy hats and drinking beer at the side of the bar. This alone... More

Great vibe here. Felt very comfortable and relaxed. Nice service and good recommendations for some Canadian beers from the bar girl. She was spot on and loved her selection. Sat at the window as it was a warm summer evening and enjoyed the wonderful mountain scenery. Clearly a place that entertains with its food, drink, staff and live events. Didn't... More

A typical choice of menu for the Banff area. all four of us very much enjoyed what we chose. Service was excellent fro your girl student. Only complaint was that my Murphy's stout was served only 7/8ths full with huge head. Price of food and drink was reasonable. Some music was being provided for a private coach party and was... More

10 of us went to this fine restaurant after a long day of hiking. Great food and service. The Sirloin steak was very nicely done the way I ordered it. The rest of the group also enjoyed their meals.

After walking around the shops we dropped in for a beer. It's upstairs and the view of the mountains is amazing. See photo.
