Just visited this restaurant after ride on Dolly's Steamboat. I did the 16oz prime rib and rest of family did the family dinner. Prime rib was very good and good value for the size/cost. Liked the creamy horseradish. The family meal included a ton of good - beef ribs, ham, chicken, beans, fresh rolls, and potatoes and green beans. Ham... More

Stopped by for lunch on Friday, 30 September...not many people there at first but quickly filled up while we were there. Rustic interior and very clean with great wait staff. We all ordered different lunches and not a complaint in the group. You gotta try their sweet potato fries and the bacon cheeseburger is second to none.

This was the perfect spot for a family meal with teens. The food was filling and reasonably prices and the western set appealed to the kids. As far as adult go, it's OK but high on the touristy end. Food was OK and western themed, so we really can't complain.

Our kids took us to dinner upon arrival into town. Pretty hungry and ready for a hearty meal. We split the tri-tip for two. It was a good meal at a reasonable price. They had good choices for kids to seniors that appealed to everyone.

It used to be the place to go for great food and pleasant atmosphere but it is slowly slipping away. Food has gone to average with high prices. Service is slow and some of the servers seem they don't enjoy their job. Will try again at a later time to see if they get it turned around again.

The food was only average, too expensive for the quality, the service was slow and the server arrogant. It did not live up to the hype,I will not go back.

For an old time Western experience come to The Mining Camps we have been coming since 1969....and it is simple food with a fun atmosphere.
