Stopped in for a quick drink around with our Wrangler friends after leaving our guest ranch BBQ. Friendly proprietor, ice cold beer. We didn't eat so can't comment on that.

The Fossil Rock Tavern is a casual, relaxed environment for everyone to enjoy.The tavern has been under new ownership for the past two summers and is being remodeled and updated and is guaranteed to be a comfortable environment for anyone who visits. Seating is available indoor at the bar or at a table, or outside at one of the picnic tables with shade provided by colorful umbrellas in a patio type atmosphere. I serve a small variety of food - a delicious grilled hamburger, homemade salsa & chips, delicious sandwiches with a variety of meats and cheeses, organic breads and locally organic grown vegetables. You will find cold beer on tap, a full service bar, and also a variety of non alcoholic drinks. There is plenty parking and room to stretch your legs after a long ride. The tavern is Biker friendly, and there is plenty safe parking for bikes off the road in front of the tavern. At night sit outside and enjoy a fire by torchlight. Gaze at the beautiful stars while enjoying a cocktail with your friends or make new acquaintances with the friendly guests who frequent the tavern. Your hostess is friendly and will do whatever she can to make your visit to the tavern and to Shell as great as possible, You will find maps, photos, directions and traveler's information abundant at the tavern to help guide you on your journey. Pet friendly, Packaged liquor sales also. Closed Mondays. Call anytime for special request or needs. Credit cards accepted. Wi-Fi service available. Tuesdays - Thursdays 11:00 am - 11:00 pm. Fridays & Saturdays 11:00am - 2:00 am. Live music and other entertainment on occasion for your enjoyment, Special private parties available.
