It was a very warm day so we came in for a beer at lunchtime and added a chicken sandwich and fries. This was a major mistake! The sandwich was greasy and tasteless and the fries awful. When one adds that the air conditioning was...More

The saloon was amazing, and no one cared if our 10 yr old grandson or even if we got up to look around. The food was really good and the price was worth it.

We are here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. I recommend the organic burgers, the cob salad, and the sweet potato fries. The homemade chips are great for a side or as a snack with a drink.

Pretty cool place - touted as the oldest bar in the state. Service was excellent, very unique decor - dollar bills on the ceiling. Didn't get the memo on what started the tradition, but there could be some very old bills up there. Fun place.

This was a fun place to visit as it's been around since the 1800's! Very historic! Food was okay and service wasn't that great. But the experience was fantastic!

Since we were staying in Groveland, we wanted to try the Iron Door. There aren't many choices in the town, so the Iron Door it was. We arrived and got promptly seated. I know that things are more casual these days, but a polo shirt...More
