“Perfectly fine for a lunch in Golden”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

The building is very historic, which gives the place a nice touch. The service was pretty decent and the menu had good variety. The food was good but not spectacular. The portions are definitely huge, so if you are not terribly hungry, splitting something with someone could be a good option. The prices were fine, not too high not too low. Overall I wasn't very intrigued or excited by this place, but if I was in the area again and I didn't have a taste for anything else, I wouldn't mind eating here again.

“Great food and a building with amazing history.”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

We loved the food. No complaints there. The buffalo melt was great.

Service was fitting for a bar and grill style place.

The history of the building was fun to learn about.

The atmosphere was good but not as great as I was expecting for a building with such age. Much of the inside was updated and remodeled. ... Which is fine but many of the new updates don't seem like they match the proper era. Much of the original parts of the interior seemed new. I did love that the old safe was left in there and opened.

All in all, I would visit again and bring friends. The food was excellent.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

I went here with my mom while we were staying in Golden and ordered a soup and salad. The clam chowder came out cold and tasted like it came out of bag and barely warmed up. We sent it back and got a much warmer bowl, but still poor taste. The salad was simple and the whole meal was over priced for what we received...

“Good food”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Good southwestern menu restaurant. There's nothing really exciting or unique on the menu but it's a decent variety. In general the menu is pretty cheap for what you get on the plate. There's also a nice bar area to watch sports and have a drink.

“Good food and a lot”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Great spot but not of your on a rush. Service was extremely slow for a lunch rush. Seemed under staffed. Food was good and you got a great portion size as well.
