Awesome historic building, great staff and food

We stopped for lunch last week and enjoyed our meal very much. Burgers were great and the fries were perfect. The menu has the history of the town and bar on the back which was interesting reading. The wait staff is incredibly friendly and laid back. Really nice place!

Awesome friendly and fun, with the best burger I've found in Buena Vista. Old time atmosphere and really nice bar tenders.

The bar hasn't changed in decades. The people are a mix of locals and visitors. Take the time to talk to the locals, enjoy a drink and a burger.

When I read "bar and grill" I expect more of a restaurant atmosphere and this is definitely a bar. Regardless, service was fantastic and food was very good. Delicious pork and avocado burrito. We brought kids, which was okay, but not as kid friendly as other places.

This is a simple little local dive bar. Just a handful of beers on tap, small and simple menu. The food is decent but the proportions me hungry. We view this place as a middle ground between Eddy Line and K's -- cheaper than Eddy Line, but sit-down service (unlike K's). Meh, we'll probably return sometime after hiking or climbing... More

Friendly and casual saloon atmosphere with bar grill food. You can feel the history of the place. Tasty burger. Delicious fries. Not fancy but comfortable. Good selection of beers on tap. Play a game of pool if you want too. In the summer Thursday nights are open mic!

This place has excellent burgers from local Scanga beef and delicious house made fries. Simple menu but all you need for a satisfying, filling, & great value. Good selection of beers and historic building add to the incentive to stop in.

On our way through Buena Vista, we were looking for a place for lunch that was unique. We went into this establishment, it appeared clean, a few obviously locals were there, do we decided to give if a shot. The waitress/bartender was a friendly, very elderly lady. I know there was a cook, but I don't think there was any... More

Our 1st choice is Buena Vista was closed but this more than exceed everyone's expectations. The bartender greeted us & offered the 4 of us lots of seating choices. We sat at the corner of the bar and proceed to order our drinks & food. Our beers & cocktails were served up & our food was out pretty quickly. I... More

This is our first stop every time we come into town. Great burgers including the vegi burger which is one of the best!! Also thing the home made fries are terrific. Kind of a dive atmosphere but great food. Don't let the appearance fool you.
