This late 1800's saloon is certainly a stop in your trip to Virginia city. We went twice. Had a few drinks. Just relaxed. This is also the entry to the mine tour. Very cool

Visit to Virginia City is incomplete without going to the mine tour. The tour guides are informative and funny. This is the only mine tour that is open during winter season. The drinks are reasonably priced and the service is friendly.

When you find yourself in Virginia City take your time and visit the ponderosa saloon. Be sure to see the mine in back for an extra few bucks. Its worth the time for the experience.

Great little bar on the towns main street. Nice artifacts from the old mining days to see along with a neat old bank vault and the best part is the mine tour. Mine starts inside the bar and only costs a couple of bucks. Well...More

The saloon includes a six dollar underground mine tour and being as the entrance was at the back of the bar, I wasn't expecting much but my expectations were exceeded. It was not only bigger than I expected but the tour guide made this is...More
