Very classic, eclectic bar and eatery. Large portions, cold beer, GREAT margaritas! Folksy, friendly and tons of fun!

We tried the Dirt Water Springs. I thought it was more of a pub. Kind of loud. Owner came arround and made sure everything was OK. The fish was great. They brought samples of the fish before we ordered. The service was fast.

Yes, the food is middle-shelf, but it's great fun for a "touristy" experience! The bar is really the most interesting part! Ambiance is an Old-West re-creation. Service is friendly and accommodating. Comparing apples to apples, as an "Old West Touristy experience" it's 4 stars, if...More

I like this place. I have been there several times. Clean and friendly. I was also there one time when they were doing a ghost investigation, so if you like that type of stuff (I do) it is cool too.
