I went here for an hour because I wanted to watch the game before fun mountain opened. They have to play music so the tv is on silent. Food was good service was good.

OKFunintheSun, The Buzzard Bar is a perfect get away and relaxing experience while listening to music. But feel free to revisit Fun Mountain as well during this time through November for game day specials!

The food was typical bar food. I’d recommend the burger. The flatbread was loaded with too much cheese. Lots of beer choices too. Had a fun time with the cowboy singer.

Description
Just downstairs from Devil's Pool, you'll find a warm welcome at Buzzard Bar. There's comfortable seating indoors amid antique appointments and the usual collection of stuffed, furred and feathered friends, or you may choose an outdoor setting on our patio or overlooking the pool. Every evening, we'll feature local entertainers including our very own Singin’ Cowboy playing and singing all your favorites. Buzzard Bar is a non-smoking establishment.
