Good food and drink in an interesting (historic) setting. Very busy and didn't seem to have enough seats. Server was slow.

We went to eat here but unfortunately we chose a night that the restaurant was fully booked for a private party. Fair enough ...but the rude manner in which we were advised by an older female waitress was embarrassing. It may be the oldest saloon but we will stick to viewing from outside because the lack of old fashioned courtesy... More

Salad bar was the highlight. Meals were average and the wait time was excessive at dinner, nearly 40 minutes for a burger.

We had to wait a while for a table, kept telling us 10 more minutes, finally sat us in a room in the back with a few empty tables so not sure why such a long wait. Waiter was very good. Food was good, not great. Went here more for the experience and the history of the place, which we... More

Me and my family visited the Iron Door Saloon for dinner and a few drinks. The three of us had a burger which was lovely. They cost about $12 each and came with fries. The wine was great and at only $5 for a huge glass!

The oldest saloon in a California should be a must stop for anyone driving through Groveland. The burgers and local brews were good and the atmosphere was better!

After a long road trip, this was a fun place to catch a late night dinner. Just don't expect fast service after 8pm when the bar really gets hopping. It took almost an hour between being seated and getting food, and the band was so loud we couldn't say anything to each other. The staff was awesome though, and obviously... More

Great staff,,, great menu,,, the Works burger is awesome and the locals have learned to put up with tourists. Evelyn at the bar is ornery and sweet all at the same time,,,, lots of local history and flavor.

I've been here countless times as I live in the next county over. But when hosting out of towners, it's a must-do. Typical old west bar with old photos (Hetch Hetchey Valley), dollar bills on the ceiling; elk, moose, bear taxidermy and a pool table. They do have a small stage and music pretty regularly. We had lunch; if you... More
