Great drinks, great steak and AMAZING beer bread! It was a little crazy busy due to the party in town, but the wait staff made it work. I would go back just for the beer bread!

We had dinner here on a Friday night. We had a wonderful and hard working waitress. The food was delicious, even the cow fries (aka Rocky Mountain Oysters). There's a saloon and a little gift shop as well. Great stop along Rt. 66.
