“Authentic saloon - boisterous, food was fair - okay for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

Don't go here just for the food (though my buffalo burger was pretty good) - it's really the wild-west atmosphere which draws you in. There will be lots of locals at the bar, old artifacts hanging from the ceiling, historic photos and stuffed wildlife on the walls, etc. We took some out-of-country friends, and they had a blast. Kids were fine sitting in the bar area, and they had a childrens menu. They took reservations, which was handy, since we were 13.

“Grab a Beer and enjoy the ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2010

I swung by the Saloon while staying at the Groveland Hotel next door. The Saloon is a great place to have a few beers. Nothing fancy. Definitely a favorite of the locals, which is good. Don't forget to look up at the ceiling and ask why there are so many dollar bills plastered there.

This is a great place for a burger + beer. The side salad was very good too!

“Never again.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2010

Worst prime rib I have had in my life. Overcooked and 50% fat. Steak fingers appetizer was nothing more than ground hamburger that had had been in freezer too long. 3 others at table all very displeased with meal.
Watered down drinks at bar and restaurant and bar both overpriced.
Unruly bar crowd were friends of bartender. Definitely not a place to take your family.

“Good fun atmosphere! Warm small town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2010

I hadn't been to the Iron Door Saloon since 1992, but was very excited to show it off to my daughter as a warm family environment where we could both enjoy ourselves. We shot some pool, ate a yummy lunch, and my 6 year old even got up stage to sing Kareoki! It is just as much enjoyable today with my daughter as I remember it as a teenager!
