“legendary watering hole”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

I've been in there on cold, lonely, autumn weeknights, and on bustling, crowded summer nights. It's a large bar and dancehall, selling souvenirs and t-shirts, displaying animals murdered and stuffed in display cases, drawing tourists to sit on the saddle-like barstools. There's usually a loud pop-country band putting out music from the stage. Sometimes it can feel like a big hustle--cowboy wannabes searching out one-night romances with tourists, the place playing up the "cowboy thing" to the hilt, over-priced shirts and stuff for sale, but it's a worth a visit for a look and a drink...although expect the service to be slow when it's busy as that bar is very long and the place usually seems to be under-staffed.

“My old west saloon dreams come true- kinda”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

This bar has really great decor. Pretty much all the hokey "oldy westy" kind of stuff you can imagine. It's touristy, but somehow you don't care. The saddle chairs are neat and the atmosphere is charged with mirth. The food didn't look so great, but since we had already eaten that night a drink at the bar was the perfect way to realize my hokey Gunsmoke saloon dreams!

“Fun place”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We loved the decor. The service was great. Try to get one of the saddle chairs at the bar.
The burgers in the bar part were o.k., served by a different owner inside this bar.
there is a restaurant downstairs.

“Drinks in the saddle”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This slice of the old west has barstools with saddles as seats. Great decor, boisterous crowd and real good steaks to boot

“Depends on what you're looking for...”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The food is average, and the bar is touristy, but if you're looking for a fun, Jackson experience, you've got to at least stop by, put your money on the pool table, have a seat on the saddle and belly up to the bar. The drink menu is somewhat limited, don't expect metro gourmet offerings here, but definitely a good selection of hard alcohol in varying degrees of quality.
They have live music and a dance floor, and the place can be loud and hopping. It's a dark bar (and up until recently, smoky) and do be prepared to pay a cover charge (those always irritate me).
If you're in Jackson to experience the local scene and gourmet food and drink, this bar may not be for you. If you're there to see the wild, wild west scene, throw back some whiskey, shoot some pool and dance, stop in.
