Nice Setting

Had a lunch date here with my husband. The bars nice, good Bloody Mary. Foods good, service was bad. It was fairly quite, cool to be in such a historic building, servers are dressed in saloon girl outfits. This is wheel chair accessible.

The Diamond Belle personifies everyone's image of an old-time, Wild-West saloon. Victorian decor, costumed waitresses and bartenders, and live music. If only the food lived up to the rest. We frequent the Diamond Belle for the ragtime piano players, and we have also caught excellent guitarists and other musicians. We always order food, then wonder why because it is so... More

We stopped in here on our way out of town last year because it looked interesting, and it was! The bison burgers were very good and the service was excellent. It was a great spot for a really good lunch and the old west saloon atmosphere really added to it. The waitresses were dressed in period costumes and really played... More

I'll admit that the reason that I picked the Diamond Belle Saloon for our family dinner was because it sounded like it would be different and a little more fun than the typical restaurant. And I was right on that account to a degree. No matter how nice the atmosphere you still want good food and service. First off, all... More

This saloon is associated with the Strater Hotel. The food is excellent as are the hostesses who dress in Gay 90s costumes. Don't even think of stealing a garter !, Step back into the Gay 90s. Live music nightly.

We like to spend Sunday evenings here, when the Blue Moon Ramblers play. The restaurant shares the kitchen with the Mahogany Grille in the hotel and you can also order from their menus. T he whisky flights are fun, son enjoyed that! Try the Thai lettuce wraps, delicious.

The food and spirits are fantastic as is the entertainment. The Cowboy hamburger is great and so is the chicken pot pie. The stuffed potato skins are very good. Chris, the bar manager, is so nice, friendly, and accommodating. The spicy Bloody Mary is wonderful.

Want to have a great old fashioned western time at a Saloon and not empty the bank? This is the place to go. Located in the Strater Hotel by the train station on Main St. you get great view out the front windows. Bar is very traditional and well serviced. Excellent drink selections with whiskey and tequila flights at extremely... More

My husband and I went to the Diamond Belle for lunch today. We are locals and had not eaten here in several years. The saloon is beautiful with nice atmosphere. We sat at the bar and the bar server gave good service. We had to wait over an hour for our food, I had soup and salad and my husband... More

Old West charm and great food and drinks. The waitresses were all wearing period costumes from the 1800's.
