Interesting decor, friendly staff, fast service, but food is nothing to write home about (I had elk burger hubby had buffalo stew—neither were super impressive). I would recommend eating outside of keystone’s boardwalk district.

Had a late lunch here. Was quickly seated and received my drink fairly quickly. Ordered the Navajo taco, which I enjoyed. The server kept up with the refills. Interesting western style decor.

This place is very busy. The food is ok, nothing to rave about. Attached to a bar so you have a drink before you eat.

We ordered the ribs and it seems like industrial food not real bbq. The service was ok as she didn't know the menu even though she told us she worked there for a long time. For the price it should have been much better -...More

Our waitress was excellent! She was very knowledgeable when it came to items on the menu. My steak was prepared exactly as ordered and the food was the excellent. Definately the best place we are on our trip.

We enjoyed the setting and atmosphere, but were disappointed with our dinners for the price. My husband had no complaints with his chopped buffalo steak, sweet potato and salad, other than the price. On the other hand, my order of chicken strips appeared to be...More

This place is cool, they have it set up like an old saloon, which it is not. I wanted to see the gunfight but had to run, nice staff. Only stopped in for a drink. But a must see in keystone.

I enjoyed the decor and the ambiance of this historic restaurant. However the menu and the food were nothing special. The service was fairly good. The prices were a little on the high side. Not great value for the money.
