About
A short 25-minute drive from Las Vegas, the Pioneer Saloon is the oldest drinking establishment in Southern Nevada, featured on many Blockbuster Movies, TV Shows and International Media Productions. The Pioneer Saloon has been operating since 1913. Inside you will see the Carole Lombard/Clark Gable Museum (Free of Charge). The saloon was used as base camp for search and recovery for the passengers of the ill-fated DC-3 flight, where in 1942 actress Carole Lombard lost her life. Her husband Clark Gable sat at the bar for several days burning holes into the bar top waiting for news of his wife’s fate. See the bullet holes in the wall where in 1915 a card shark was shot to death for cheating at cards, ruled a justifiable homicide. The original 1860 potbelly stove still heats the Saloon today. The Saloon is also haunted as seen on the Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures”. Take lots of photos you may get a ghost! The Pioneer Saloon offers incredible food boasting a 10-page menu, 4 full service bars, great selection of craft beers on tap and live entertainment on weekends. Very friendly staff, a fun place to visit! Kids Welcome! Family Friendly! Dog Friendly! (on leash) Incredible Food served all day! Plenty of parking! Tours Several tours are offered through the Pioneer Saloon including The History Tour, The Star Gazing Tour, & The Haunted Lockdown Tour. Call for more information or visit our website. Disclaimer: Card Sharks are shot on site Horse Thieves are hung out back Street Girls bringing cowboys in to the saloon must pay for room in advance

    Old Saloon with Modern Taste - Worth the Stop
    Historical local saloon, near Vegas with good food and live music. This old west styled no nonsense bar has both indoor and outdoor seating, a small gift shop, well prepared burgers and cold drinks. We will return.

    Worth a stop
    Love driving to places and experiencing what they are about. This place was one of them. Purposely drove 3 hrs to check this place out as it has quite a bit of history to it. The food was good, the place was not bad given its years of service. You can definitely see time in the building itself. The staff were great and very friendly. Service was good. The margarita was great. I got the ribs and the flavor was great. The mushroom burger was good too. Was not disappointed with my food. Also, they have a live band playing towards the back of the patio. Even though we were seated inside by the bar area (it was cooler), the live music was still so loud. Coming from Riverside, CA, it was not worth the 3 hr drive but if you are on your way to vegas or coming back, you might as well check it out. We only went straight to the saloon. There are mentions of ghost town but we didn’t explore any further as it was a hot day.

    It's an experience
    Oldest saloon in the neighborhood or something. Lots of character and lots of movies filmed here. A lot of celebrities have walked through the doors. Can it really qualify as a hidden gem? Hmm. Food for thought. Discuss among yourselves. Band playing outside on a Thursday night, that was cool. Don't expect fancy waiters in tuxes, it ain't that type of place. The staff are down to earth friendly people. I ordered the Naked Legs (smoked chicken wings). They took forever, but to be honest between the music, the beer, and the people I didn't mind so much. Especially because they were worth the wait. Spicy, smoky, crispy... Awesome. Bama sauce was the perfect compliment. I had been driving all day, this was the perfect place to unwind.

    We love to come here when we are in Nevada. Ordered a Poltergeist Burger and a High Blue Cactus Burger. Burgers were perfectly done, filling, and delicious. Margarita was excellent. Friendly service and we felt welcomed. Amazing amount of history in the saloon. It's a Nevada Historical Landmark.

Don't go or if you do go plan on spending a bundle for the experience. Cool saloon on an out of the way road. Way to much for the food you get and over priced liquor. We had a burger the size of an IN N Out burger for 16.99. They added 50 cent to the drink we ordered. They added 3 bucks for the smallest size of potato salad that we thought came with the burger. No fries etc with the burger price. Save your money and try something else. Take a look at the receipt and you'll get a idea of the feeling we had of being ripped off.

Not recommended at all. I don't recommend it to anyone. The interior does not look atmospheric - very cheap Chinese quality styling. The food is not bad, but be prepared for hidden extra charges. Each piece of onion added to your hot dog costs its own price. therefore the price stated on the menu is doubled or tripled. a glass of regular beer in plastic will cost $15... I left with a very unpleasant feeling of outright fraud and dishonesty.
