Wild Bill’s Sports Saloon, is planning to open its fourth restaurant at the former location in Woodbury.
Brian Moe, the owner of the Apple Valley Wild Bill's, said it was a surprise , and company officials viewed it as a good opportunity to gain a foothold in the east metro, especially since Wisconsin enacted its own smoking ban.
The space is currently being renovated, and the Woodbury Wild Bill’s is expected to open sometime in November. Moe wasn’t sure how many employees will be hired.
Wild Bill’s features homemade food and competitive drink prices, Moe said. The Woodbury restaurant will join its , Blaine and Maple Grove. There are plans to expand to a chain of restaurants, he said.
The new restaurant will also feature a patio with an outdoor bar and televisions, Moe said.
“It’s a really good vibe,” he said. “You can socialize with friends, get a cocktail and food. … (The patio) is a staple for us. We hibernate for months here in Minnesota, so it’s good to be able to get outside.”
Wild Bill’s also plans to bring in a deejay a couple of nights each week for “party nights,” Moe said.
Wild Bill’s will be located at 546 Commons Drive in Woodbury, off Radio Drive.
