The bar gives the Banta Inn it's character, and the bartender Vivian gives the bar it's character. Every once in a while you stop off at an unfamiliar place far from home and the staff make it a special memory for you. Our party of four stopped off for a quick drink, but stayed several hours since we enjoyed it... More

The employees seemed to encourage ordering from the bar. I was more interested in the fact that Banta Inn was located on the Lincoln Highway (the first trans-continental highway in the country)....

Known for having the 'Best Steak in Town'... The Banta Inn is the only place to go for dinner. Literally. The court yard in this one horse town was home to the Mare. All joking a side, this actually is a great place to get a steak. Be prepared to step back into time because this may be the last... More
