Okay, first, Im 56 years old biker dad with two kids in college. I have been to Wild Bills several times during lunch, happy hour, and twice late in the wee hours to watch the fun with extended family members (young and old) in this circus like atmosphere. Bouncers were very polite and effective at eliminating trouble makers quickly and discretely as possible. One even apologizing to me as he arm-lock choke hold walked one of the rowdy undesirables past me. I am a veteran of rowdy bars in my day so they dont scare me. This was mild compared to my "fightin" past. The waitstaff and servers are top notch and service is as good as it gets. I am always forced to give more than 15% tip because of the quality service and tasty food menu. Yeah the music at night is about 20% in my wheelhouse but hell, my parents didnt like my music either. The DJs play what the kids want. They look like theyre having a great time and I had fun watching them and buying shots from the "shotgirls" and chasing it down with a beer from one of the beer tub girls. No waiting for the bartender...awesome. Very well managed and courteous employees all the way around. They have many big screens to watch games while you eat/drink on Sunday and prices are very competitive. To all those giving bad reviews, I invite you to give them a second chance. All you complaining about being carded, got news for you, it happens at every restaurant or liquor store no matter your age, unless youre a regular!!! That is strictly to cover their butts from a legal perspective. Deal. To the hundreds of folks who keep coming back...get off your butt and write a review of your experience. Maybe WB should have a contest for the most creative review? Good times and good memories at this place for me.
My issues regarding Wild Bills are for those that have a shed of respect and isnt willing to succumb to the Guy Bro atmosphere that Wild Bills presents. Therefore, for you jocks and early 20 somethings that want to get spunk drunk, stare at some attractive waitresses and couldnt care less about how they are being treated, then please enjoy Wild Bills. For the rest of you, and I mean the ever reducing group of enlightened people that can tell you what service means, and with that said, the follow is my opinion alone and is not based in any factual way. When we arrived, seating was quick, getting the first round of drinks was all going according to plan. However, this is where the plan goes terrible. 1) WB offers a "power hour" where 6 wings are available for $1 or a plain burger for $1, and seems like a good deal. However, they will offer you blue cheese or ranch, but they charge 50 cents, it is not included. 2) After out round of drinks arriving, it took over 20 minutes to flag the waitress to get back to our table and we were told "Sorry for the bad service," so why do we need an apology? 3) The management staff here seems to have the wait staff do their dirty work. The wait staff seems to purposely have you not put in an order as to not have the kitchen do work. I overhead a manager verbally lash a server for not putting the stuff on a bloody mary, but as a manager, this should happen in the back and let it go as servers are people. If Wild Bills doesnt want people to enjoy the specials that they advertise, then dont offer them. I feel for the servers and I I smell that there are issues that stem from the top down and I hope that Wild Bills can turn around.
I have visited Wild Bills twice in a week since it is in walking distance from my hotel; it has been by far the worst two time experience I have had since coming to the Cities on business with my job. The first time I experienced the rudest bartender, (she had a scowl on her face the whole time I was there) I asked her to smile thinking it would cheer her up!? She snapped back at me and told me to not to tell her to smile that it was a demeaning comment to women. She claimed she was from Russia and that men there dont treat women that way. WTF!!! The next experience, I ordered a Walleye dinner as others have mentioned previous to me the service was slow at best. I finally had to ask someone coming from the kitchen if I could get a waitress. When the food finally arrived it was by far the worst prepared Walleye I had ever had. When I asked the waitress to clear the table and explained that I would not be able to finish the meal and my reasoning why she sent a manager to my table. I again explained to the manager that I would not be able to eat the meal because it tasted tainted or overly fishy. She said rudely back well its fish! All Walleye people know that is why we eat Walleye, because it doesnt have the sharp fish taste. Besides the fact of being severely over priced for what they were feeding you. After this second experience I will also not be a repeat visitor to Wild Bills Sports Saloon! I dont come from out of town to be mistreated for something that Im paying for! I will definitely not be suggesting it to anyone else that comes from out of town like myself...,.
My family and friends have been going to this place since it opened. It used to be really great, but in the past year or so it has been going downhill fast. We (family and friends) have had so many combined bad experiences over time, that we all agreed to just quit going there. They have lost all of our business forever. If you read the rest of the reviews you will find many similar bad experiences-we have had all of those and more. In a nutshell, the food,service, and management are just bad. The nightlife has really gone downhill, too. And heres a warning for persons around 30 and above: dont go there after 930pm on Thurs-Fri-Sat, unless you are looking for big trouble with the clientele , or a hassle with the bouncers, or even the cops waiting for you outside... Too funny-just checked on the review again, the management or owner has not contacted me as promised months ago. Ever since I wrote this review I can say that not 1 family member or friend has been to Wild Bills. If you are looking for a good bar and grill, there are many better options in the Apple Valley/Burnsville area. Carbones is excellent for watching football, the Valley Tap House is has an awesome happy hour, and Old Chicago is also a great place with great service!
I don’t know what it is about a great sports bar that I like so much but I was so happy with my recent visit to Wild Bills Sports Saloon in Apple Valley that I had to write a quick review of the place. It really reminded me of what it must have been like in the ‘old west’, especially the crackly peanut shells on the floor. Nice touch. Even better were their burgers which were delicious. I’m not much of a buffalo wings fan but my kids had the wings and they loved the sauces! The service was excellent too and our waitress was very sweet and took great care of us. I’ll be going back soon during the week because they have $5.00 burgers then and they’re so much better than the fast food places but for the same price! Take that Wendy’s! I highly recommend the place to anyone who loves good food in a comfy, down home setting.
