“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

Although this saloon is quite historic the food prices are quite high for what you get. We purchased 2 lunch time meals, a burger and chips and fish and chips. The burger came with hot fries, the fish came with a packet of crisps. A cup of soda cost over $3 (with no refills).

The bar area is dark with one pool table. Apart from the historic value, I wouldn't go back.

“Great small town place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Caliente is a small town and this place just is what you would expect. Staff always friendly and service is fine. We stick to burgers onion rings and similar style foods. You can see the old train station across the street. Photos on wall depict some local history and staff will chat about it. Its a fine place to stop when traveling up to Cathedral Gorge and back from Las Vegas.

“Stay Clear of this place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Where to start. First off... all they have is swamp coolers, NO A/C. The worst part was the bartender was awful. Same round of drinks, different prices every time. Drinks were terrible. Dont even think she was ringing up the drinks. Wont go back of shes there. (the bleach blonde)

“Totally perfect for what it is and where it is!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We stopped here on the way home to Las Vegas after viewing the annular eclipse from center line, just north of here in Pioche Nevada. Well, the place was packed around 8 PM and the poor staff was totally overloaded...one chef, two servers, and a chef playing at being a server, which he took with humor...as did we!!! We thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle...they kept running out of food and things, including dishes...I told them to just unplug the lighted signs outside, which they thought was a great idea, and helped slow the business...we ate endlessly, two of us, including a glass of wine, for $27.98!!!!!!
The ONLY place in Caliente to eat...gambling and a saloon with music is also available, right here in this cute little place across from the historic and beautifully restored Union Pacific Rail Station.

“Good food, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

For a small town, this is a nice place to eat. The service caters to locals, and therefore the menu is pretty basic, but they are starting to add a few more interesting things, such as sweet potato fries to the menu. I hope they will continue to offer alternatives to fried food.
