What used to be an iconic tourist and family suitable venue has resorted to putting on "R" rated shows???

Too hard to get decent meals and service so opted to cater for the sleaze market.

We went for a meal and a couple of drinks and was so revolted by staff wearing blue trucker singlets that we left after having half of our drinks which were served in plastic.

The restaurant is located close to town. It is furnished in old antique items used the area for ranching, mining etc. There is dining both inside and outside. You order and pay for you meal at the bar and they bring it out to you. Prices are moderate.

As the sun sets, the live music and dancing begins in the front part of the restaurant.

The food was good in quality and quantity.

I debated whether or not to so this review or not but after deciding that if it were my restaurant I would want to know ! Visited dec 27th on the basis of the reviews here and have to say it ended up like a bad episode of faulty towers
1. Entered not busy, lots of uncleared tables about.
2. My partner went to the bar for drinks which were served in plastic as the bar tender said he had no time to wash them
3. All the menus were out on tables with other customers most of whom had already ordered and had there food
4. Eventually we asked other customers for menus and we ordered off the young lady who was completely inappropriate dress for a waitress
5. Food arrived partially wrong Caesar salad was horrible lettuce was green and tastes almost grassy
6. We're never asked if was alright or needed anything else
7. After hour an a half when table wasn't cleared we moved for drinks.
8. Last drinks were called at ten two the hour, then 6 paying customers who had been let in by bouncer were refused service after he asked the waitress if it was on
9, we were promptly ejected 8 mins after relieving our last drinks
10. Kitchen staff were smoking outside during meal preparation and were behind the bar helping them selves to drinks and using bad language after Turnkng away paying customers
Now I'm not sure if this was post Christmas exhaustion or management on hols but it looked like no one was running this car crash show that night and hopefully it was a once off

This saloon is located in the center of town, near the Greyhound station. Have a few good Australia beers (better than American beers except Sam Adams). The bar is very large and has interesting items posted to the walls.

This place was recommended to us, but the kitchen doesn't open until after 5 PM it seems.

Cool saloon atmosphere, friendly staff, but I didn't get to experience the food due to time.
