Friendly staff, great atmosphere. Beer selection was good. The Cowboy show was kinda corny but added to the fun. We ate at the restaurant which has great ambience. Food was average, nothing special, but service was great. Visiting here certainly added to the fun factor...More

Have never experience a place where someone from next door came to take your drink order and gave you a separate check. What a stupid system. Certainly not customer friendly.More

Thank you for your feedback on your visit. I am sorry you were disappointed with two separate checks. The Ruby House and Red Garter were opened over 40 years ago by my family, The Red Garter remains under the original family ownership. Unfortunately two generations...More

After a long day of sightseeing, we were famished and thirsty! Since we were here after the traditional tourist season, many places were closed. We wandered into the Red Garter and found the Old West! We also found excellent service, great brews and delicious food!...More

The ribs were fall off the bone good! The atmosphere was great and the waitresses were amazing. You have to order drinks separate from your meal as it comes from a separate bar, but that doesn't take away from the experience at all!
