While in Tombstone we wanted a little unique atmosphere to add to the "western flavor". Big Nose Kates hit the spot. We were treated to live music by a guitar playing gentleman. Lots of Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson. I was advised to eat the...More

This old historic Western bar has a fun vibe and live music. A guitarist played country music the day we were there. Full bar, good menu and excellent service. The food was superbly prepared.

I was drawen in by the music being played. Read reviews as I had a drink. Ordered food and it arrived in a timely manner, had a great server. Would repeat again, not sure where the bad reviews came from.

This was recommended by friends and they were absolutely right- this was a great place to try out in Tombstone where there are LOTS of choices. We got a great table for the 4 of us and ordered our lunch/dinner before we headed out for...More

The place looks as though it has not been cleaned in 100 years. The bartenders wear corsets which is fine but the look is just dirty because the corsets need to be replaced ever so often and their not. There is a musician in house...More

We've been here many times and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. We tend to get their chicken or taco salad, where it's always fresh and tasty.

We stood in line for 30 minutes. Many people came after us and were seated. They wouldn’t seat us because there were only 2 if us. All of the tables were set up to seat 6 people. We left after 30 minutes because it was...More

No it's more of a restaurant. I hear they clear out table and it becomes more like a saloon in the evening but I didn't see that.

Their website says that they have 12 beers on tap. I can't remember what they were, but I would not let that get in my way. Their selection will be as good as any bar in Tombstone. Go and have fun!
