We visit the Saddle Club two or three times a month and have since it started. We'd go more often if it were closer, as it's an hour drive from our home. Alpine is our "Big Town" in the Trans-Pecos and we go there to shop and stop at the Saddle Club. The Club has a real friendly atmosphere, always... More

Great food, a little on the gourmet side, with dining inside or outside. Even has outside heating. Loved this pace! Great service.

I love the Big Bend Country and have visited Alpine at least twice a year for the past 30 years. My initial experience with the Saddle Club was outstanding after it opened. Subsequent visits have left me with no interest in returning. The overall attitude in the place is that they could care less that you are there and exhibit... More

I was pretty nervous about eating mussels in the middle of the desert but was assured they would be great and they were. Great service in a cool building!

This little bar a short walk from the campus of Sul Ross State has a well chosen short list of wines by the glass and an interesting short list of microbrew suds from all over. The food menu said small plates, but two items (the fries covered with brisket and the pork Diablo ) were more than enough for my... More

We stayed a hotel nearby and went here after dinner. It was a fun bar and some people were playing a guitar and singing outside on the patio which was very enjoyable.

It's exciting to hear that you enjoyed the live entertainment we had in for the evening. It's always a nice touch to listen to some music while enjoying a drink, so the team and I appreciate that you were digging the vibes as much as we do. All that to say, we can't wait to have you back sometime soon... More

We went into this bar thinking it was going to be such a cool experience but didn't stay long before happening upon Harry's Tinaja. The beer wasn't too cold - bummer.
