We visited mining camp restaurant after a day sightseeing and the Ghost Town. It was a little spendy but our dinner was fantastic. I enjoyed their Caesar salad which was very tasty. I also had their prime rib which was cooked to perfection. The service was great and the ambience was good as well. We would definitely go again

We loved the ghost town! the mountain view is so beautiful. There is so much to do with the kids, train ride,horses, reptiles, and great food. the souveniour shops are fun too. I loved the little church that is there. You have to go and experience the wild wild west.

Hello Michelle, We are glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. However, I believe you visited our neighbor's the Goldfield Ghost Town. Either way, we are glad to see you enjoyed a few of the many Apache Trail Attractions. More

This hidden gem is a wonderful place to bring out -of -towners for a real treat! The drive there and the scenery all around are fabulous. Just down the road from the Ghost Town, riding stables and area lakes so there's plenty to do out in the area. Great food whether you choose the family style or their separate restaurant... More

Had the family style dinner. Lots of food and yummy. I lived the roads. Bring your appetite. The ribs had a great sauce on them. Great fun for a group! Check for hours because they are only open limited hours during the summer. Winter time they also have shows in the family dining area. They also have a separate steakhouse... More

We went last night and the food is over the top. The atmosphere is rustic and the service is grate. It reminds you of a old mining camp but up to date. Easy to get to and is at the foot of Superstition mountain.
