No longer the old and tired Whales Tail. As much as I liked the old institution the new STAG is a welcoming and comfortable saloon. Food is real good and the atmosphere is perfect. Come on in.

We were optimistic with the new management and were shown a menu at lunch, that included kids pizza. Upon arrival for our 6:30 pm reservation, the restaurant was very loud and smokers were gathered directly outside the front door - most unpleasant when seated at...More

One advantage of this place is that when they tell you that there is a 1/2 hour wait for a table, you can take a drink from the bar and sit outside by the fire chatting - really pleasant. Plenty of atmosphere and good American...More

The menu has the usual choices, burgers, steaks, seafood and other stuff like elk. The food is good, I had fish tacos. Prices are a little high, but I guess that is typical for the area.
