The clerk at the Shoshone Inn recommended this restaurant across the street from the motel and believe me, she did not steer us wrong. The food was good, the service was fast and the server was friendly, and the place was decorated with the most fascinating collection of vintage décor. We loved it!

Passing through & gasping for a drink this saloon was a welcome step back in time...it even had the sheriffs sitting at a table. Friendly service, good food and good coffee. I would happily go again!

We stopped here after our drive from Vegas and before reaching the Death Valley. This place it is in the middle of nowhere and the little village around is very characteristics and very very little.

A nice Bar and Coffee Shop/Restaurant in Shoshone, beside a small museum. The food is quiet good and the ambience too.

We arrived at 11:30 A.M. for lunch. The tables were set up for our group and we were served right away. The food and service was just wonderful. The Red Hats with Attitude from Pahrump Nevada.
