This was a great venue to hear some fun bands during Viva Big Bend. Two bars, pool tables, lots of tables, fun atmosphere. I only saw one of each bathroom, which I don't understand, but as crowded as it was, it didn't seem to be a problem. Bar tenders didn't get in a hurry, but that seems to be the... More

The live music is fun. They have outdoor fireplaces. Lots of two steppers. Pool tables and dart board. $10 cover for live music. Guinness on tap!

We got there at 4 when it opened since there was nothing else in town to do with the cold weather and snow. Cute place and great selection of beers with a bunch of IPA's as well as local. While in alpine need to stop here at least one time

A very nice place where you can drink a great Texan beer while you listen to good rock-blues music. Also people are great. In addiction, you can play pool with nice people that you'll know there.

Railroad Blues has a great vibe to it. It's just about the perfect bar with a good selection of beverages, great music, and some of the nicest folks you'd care to meet. The night we visited, a fire was blazing outside in the giant fire ring. We weren't here on a night they had live music, but the jukebox was... More

Billing itself at the World Famous Wine and Beer Tourist Trap, I had to stop by and visit. Very unique décor, juke box was playing heavenly country music. Room with pool tables, stage and lots of pictures of people who had played there. Beer special was $1.50 which is a GREAT PRICE for Dos Equis. Will visit again when they... More

On a recent visit to Alpine, TX, we spent a Wednesday evening at this establishment. Most of our group of eight planned to depart Alpine early the nest morning; so we made it an early evening. Beers were good and cold. No live music, but canned music was playing in the bar area. It was karaoke night (starting at 10... More

Visited during a music festival, and the atmosphere is what you want about a bar with blues, or country music.

If in Alpine, this is the place not to be missed. It is different, and I guess where real Texans come for good music and good beer... bar selection was quite surprising and very good. beers you never heard of...but good...good people watching

Had a great time listening to music here! You can tell each person that got on stage really enjoyed themselves, too! :) Great beer selection and enjoyed a tasty sangria (only beer and wine available here). There was an enormous outdoor fire happening that we enjoyed visiting. Fun dancing and people-watching! Overall, we had a great time!
