Not much to say but if you're hungry and don't want leave. Then it's better then the Palace. Foods not that great but it'll do.

We were on a day trip thru convention. Ate here while we walked around and enjoyed the view. Had lunch and drank a beer heavy on the root. Great stuff. View was spectacular from the porch.

Typical historic bar in Virginia city. Wide open room with Windows behind the bar. The view across the mountains and valleys is spectacular, especially in the afternoon. They call it the 100 mile view. I call it the million dollar view.

I ate here once and loved it! Planned on taking my husband back. About two weeks after my visit, the new owner of the building took possession and cancelled the Cafe's lease. A real loss to Virginia City, in my opinion.

My daughter, my grind and her daughter had dinner here as it was about the only place open. Virginia City restaurants close very early on weeknights, so plan accordingly! We were so glad this was about our only option, as the food was just wonderful! Two of us had the grown up grilled cheese sandwich and it was amazing! If... More

While there having lunch, which was standard fare, we observed a couple who have a small service dog enter the front door. She asked if they had salads on the menu and if the there was seating on the patio. The man who worked there or (owner ?) not sure which, said "there are no dogs allowed here" she replied... More
