My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here, and when the hostess found this out, she seated us in "the vault" which was exactly what it sounds like, and it was amazing. Quiet, alone, beautiful old vault for what used to be a jewelry...More

The food was very good, prices were reasonable, and it provided the authentic Wyoming restaurant experience and menu I was looking for. The service was slow, but I'm sure that can vary and happen anywhere, and the staff was very nice. If you're passing through,...More
