“Lady in Decline”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Oddly enough, the more they've tried to improve the restaurant side, the worse it's gotten. Years ago, the place was kind of a drafty dump with fun, happy service and great food at reasonable prices. Since it's been remodeled, the menus has changed for the worse. Furthermore, the food is not as good as it once was. The trivial pursuit cards have been removed from the tables, so there's nothing to do while you're waiting. And the prices have increased, so it's not a particularly good value anymore, either. The best thing about it, though, is still the root beer floats.
The bar side is still fine. You can grab a beer, shoot some pool and watch the game on the big screen.

“Yummy”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Loaded baked potato soup had nice chunks of potato and bacon. Portabello mushroom sammie was easy to split.

“Slow service and overcooked food”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We were in the restaurant part, not the saloon. Been there twice, and the service was very slow (45 min+) and food was overcooked.
