This was a family friendly place. They had a nice variety on the menu. The brisket tacos were big and tasty. My picky daughter enjoyed the chicken and dumplings. Service was good on a Saturday night. Would definitely visit again.

I ordered the chicken and dumplings and it was bland as it could be! I really couldn’t eat it. The beer wasn’t very good either.

Our food was fine and their micro brew was good. They have really fancy growlers for sale that aren't cheap, but really nice looking. It was an easy and quick place to go in and grab supper.

We had dinner here during a short stay to visit the National Park. Nice place. Friendly, clean, varied menu, moderate prices and daily specials. Service was fast, though they weren't having a busy night. Really enjoyed the Navajo taco!

We had lunch and really enjoyed it. The owner was there and apologized for the disabled parking clear around back...a city ordnance. They had a large group but still were very timely with the food. Good was great.

Very average frozen bar food. Staff is friendly. It's not really a micro brewery compared to many others around the U.S. but I hear hotel staff point people here all the time. It's a last stop for us if nothing else is open on Sunday...More
