Stopped in to simply enjoy the historic value of the Red Dog Saloon. I had a spicy Bloody Mary that was made to perfection. Then we saw a window where you order food and we couldn't pass that up. I had a slice of pizza...More

We arrived into town at 8PM and the Red Dog Saloon was the only place to eat still open. I had the fish and chips that were cooked a little more well done than I would prefer, my wife had a roast beef sandwich that...More

We stopped here based on Trip Advisor ratings. We ordered two pizzas, and received them in a reasonable amount of time. The pizza was good but nothing special, it was just average pizza, the kind I'd expect from a chain restaurant, but this one isn't....More

The food had good flavor, but must have set for a while. Fries were good, service was slow and prices a little high.

An interesting saloon with lots of period features. The pizza looked very good as did all the food. A great place for a pit stop.

This is a really touristy place, but as there were limited options for lunch in Virginia City we gave it a try. The pizza was much better than I expected it to be. The Old West decor fits in with the area. Nice clean restrooms.

If you are vegan, look no further. The pizza dough is dairy free and you can custom order your pizza to leave off the cheese and add all the veggies. Tasted great and the staff (Athena) was very friendly. There was a band warming up...More

Our pizza dough is diary free however we do only use real cheese so request no cheese when you order. We have good selection of non meat toppings to choose from that are cut fresh daily.
