Staff was friendly and helpful and the food was nice. We had two kinds of pizza, wings, bbq, and coconut shrimp. Portions were generous and reasonably price for a tourist spot. Not a big deal, but bbq and shrimp took a long time. Waitress explained it. Decor and atmosphere fit the bill. I had the bbq and shrimp and can... More

I loved going to this place. The pizza was awesome but above that was the help. Everyone was so gracious and friendly. The bartender told us about the Testi-festival that was on the weekend and told us that we should stop back by. Being a city-girl I had never heard of such thing so we came back up and was... More

What an amazing place. Virginia City is a throw back in time. Walking into the saloon made me want to order a shot of whiskey. I am looking forward to going back. There is so much to see and do in Virginia City.

Drove to Virginia City from Sparks....what a hoot! If you care to see some of the history of the area this is a good place for lunch. Pizza and antipasto salad fit the bill. A bonus is that the walls are filled with signed posters from groups who performed there in the 60's. Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airship and so many... More

Our party had fish and chips (being from Wisconsin I know a good fish fry this one was very good),house special of sliced beef and french fries too many to eat and... More

Food and drinks are good. My favorite part was seeing locals dressed for the part dancing along with the saloon's band, they make the place unique.

We ordered 2 salads and wings. The wings were very good. The salads were pre made and the lettuce was very bitter. It was to much for one person to eat. There was a female playing a guitar and singing. It would have been better if there was a band.

Thanks for stopping in and enjoying. We have live music on most Fridays and Saturdays but in much of November-February we have a solo or maybe no one because Virginia City is so slow most nights. Our salads are a mix of Green Leaf, Red Leaf, Tangos, Lola Rosa, Batavia and Oak Leaf lettuces with a somewhat rustic flavors that... More

Stopped in for a drink and was delighted to see the owners dog she is a beautiful girl. All staff friendly even though it was so busy there was nowhere to sit. The pizza is good and smells amazing.
