“The usual american meal in a nice setting”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

The place was full,yet quiet and the service was prompt.
It was decorated with old signs and advertisements, nice.
Food was ok (usual normal American food: burgers, sides etc.) I had a glass of Colorado wine. All for less than 40 bucks!

“Good experience”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

It has been years since I have eaten in this restaurant. I used to stop here on the way back from skiing. Based on new visit I still like the place. I had the bison meatloaf burger with more fries than two people could eat. Nicely cooked and very tasty. Friend had the cod fish sandwich which was ok and served with a nice side salad. Good service overall. Cost about $20.00 plus tip.

“Good Grub!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Very old bar- think mining boom. Large selection of tap brews plus a great deal on featured pints. All you can eat deal 8pm to close on mon thru Thurs for $3.50 including specials each nite. I hear the Wed nite Gumbo is great! Avoid parking hassles by parking in the rear lot and using back entrance.

Reviewed August 10, 2013

Me and my friend had a couple of very nice buffalo burgers at this place, we liked the cherry beer which is brewed down the street, but please don't try the margaritas

“Buffalo burgers n chips”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is a good stopping point to catch a quick bite on your way to the mountain resorts. The buffalo burgers are good but the homemade potato chips that accompany it are great. Service is good and the atmosphere is old western. After lunch is a good time to walk around the quaint town stopping at several of the charming stores.
