Classic old west restaurant!

Cool experience, classic old west restaurant. Wagon wheel lights, long tables, couldn't have been more spot on family old west place. Food was good, and surprisingly so were the drinks.

WE loved sitting in this Old style place. The bar was very well done. The décor was Certainly "True" Old West! The drinks were well poured, and the food was very good. And not to expensive. Our server was very good. We will go back there.

This is a difficult restaurant to reach and not advisable after dark but the little mining town and the restaurant are worth the time. The inside of the restaurant is a hodge podge of old articles from the mining days. The food was average and served quickly and not overly priced. Something to do on a lazy afternoon.

Was told it would be a 25 minute wait for a table. It was really more an hour and 20 minutes. By the time we had waited past 40 minutes and still hadn't been seated, they were still telling people 20 minutes for a table. Other than the horribly long wait for a table, the food was good and the... More

I took my wife and two young sons there on a Saturday night for dinner. While the restaurant is a bit dark, the atmosphere and staff were a pleasant change. First there is no real menu. Main course consist of BBQ Ribs, Roasted Chicken, and Ham with a pineapple chutney sauce. Sides are baked beans, coleslaw, green beans, and roasted... More

Western casual. Good food at reasonable prices. Variety of draft beers and wines. Interesting place to visit. Many pieces of old mining camp tools and machines on the property. Very good service, and a large parking area.
