OK...one reason we stopped was because after 2 weeks in Utah, we were ready for a real beer. We saw it was highly rated, and the food did not disappoint. The Nevada Cheesesteak sandwiches we had were the best food on our trip. And no, that's not the greater-than-3.2 beer talking. It was nice to be in a place that... More

Tired after a long drive - thought this would be a decent option. And it would have been fine, but very limited menu - meat, meat, meat and fried, No veggies?

This is a favorite of the locals and was recommended by our hotel. We were not disappointed. They have a large, varied menu. We enjoyed our selection very much and it was very reasonably priced. Good recommendation!

Ice cold beer and excellent bloody Mary's! Philly cheese steak, rueben, chicken fingers and onion rings. All excellent! All servers are courteous, but our favorite server is Mindy! Efficient, friendly and very attentive.

From the street, this looks like just a bar - not a restaurant. Regardless, we went in based on the reviews we had read on TripAdvisor. Ordered a burger (served on a pretzel bun) and it was good. Also ordered the daily special, pulled pork nachos with BBQ sauce, and it was absolutely delicious. The back patio looked nice, but... More

The special the night we went was smoked BBQ ribs. they were "fall off the bone" tender and really tasty. All the sides were great too. and the outdoor patio was nice. It was really crowded but the servers were friendly and efficient. Would definitely eat there again if in town.

The Bar & Grill is located downtown and walking distance from the Jailhouse Motel where we were staying. We arrived at 5 PM to find the bar completely full but the dining portion empty. No reservations needed. We ordered the spicy pasta which was almost not edible because of an over use of red pepper. The fish and chips were... More
