This place is preserved and authentic! It is a very realistic look back at the times and shows a lot of what life in those times was really like. The rooms remain as they were and you can walk through and see everything, along with photos and informational documents on the walls. A very interesting visit!

A lot of old time 1800s atmosphere. Food is very good. Prices are above average but well worth it. A great place for having a celebration dinner. Very romantic setting.

service is never that good and food is over priced, I know the décor is supposed to look old and dated but lighten things up a bit. I always try to avoid going here when someone brings it up.

Was very disappointed when I was told many of the items were not original. What's the point if you are a historian and everything is not original.

Buy your tickets at the jewelry store downstairs and must be able to climb the stairs. The place is left exactly like it was when the "girls" were ordered to leave by the Texas Rangers.

Great place to go where the setting is peaceful. Food is good but some things can be pricey. A first time visit people would truly enjoy.
