This is absolutely the best place to eat in town. Quite a varied menu and they even serve half portions, which are still too big for one person! I went several times, had chicken nachos, ribs, wings, swiss mushroom burger. All were amazingly good. The bar area is friendly as is the clientele, I always felt welcome. I will definitely... More

We were so happy we decided to go here for dinner after a terrible lunch at the Boathouse. We were so hungry and the Chicken Fried Steak dinner (mine) was delicious-(everyone else liked their dinners as well)!

We used to love this place and would come here several times a month in the winter. This was our first time this year and the food was horrible.

Awesome chicken-fried steak/chicken.This restaurant only prepares mashed potatoes after 5 pm.Great burgers, & iced tea. Many big screens to see the game from any seat. Very crowded on big game days. I go by myself and have always treated attentively.

We were staying across the street, and walked in for the best service ever! Thanks to our server Marissa. Food was delicious bar food, perfect for after a long day of skiing at Monarch Mountain. Great prices on drinks and food as well.

We were in Salida to ski over Christmas and walked from the Hampton Inn right across the street. They had a buffet full of great food. Service was also good. Limited beer selection but we prefer microbreweries.
