Went there to watch a friend play in a band. The band was "Cold Water" from Pocatello Idaho. They were very good. The service was good, the beer was cold and the place was clean.

reasonable drink prices, but don't go there to visit with family!!!! You can't even pretend to talk to your neighbor unless you can read lips. VERY VERY LOUD, but the music was pretty good. Lots of people on a weekend. If you like the bar scene.....it is great..... I am more of a lounge and quiet visit with drinks.

Was looking for a place to eat lunch so decided to try this spot that was a bloc south of the main drag. The bartender/waitress was friendly but a tad bit slow in taking care of us. She was busy visiting with the locals which is understandable. We put in an order for a Jalapeno burger and a grilled chicken... More

I love this place. It is one of the funnest bars you will find. The people are fun and they always have some kind of party going on. Look them up on Facebook for updates.

Ole town saloon meets big city Honky Tonk. Great place to meet the gang after soaking in the hot springs. They have a great menu, live band and karaoke.

The food was good. The service was good. They are really busy so service can be slow. If you aren't in a hurry and want to enjoy a beer and burger This is the place to go!

Great service. Clean bar. Not a fan of the smokers inside. Friendly patrons as well. The bar food was fabulously good.

Ratings are relative. There are two bars in town. The other is the Wagon Wheel. We've been there but always end up at the Blue Moon. Drinks are cheap and the people watching can be very interesting. If at first you feel (and/or get treated) like an interloper just sit down at the bar and buy the local guy next... More

Walked in and felt like we were intruding about 8 pm on a Monday night. Gave up when no one acknowledged our presence and we left. It is dirty, smoky and has locals that aren't at all friendly. There are better choices in Lava and even the grocery store has friendlier service and a reasonable selection of liquor.

This is your basic grungy bar. We're ok with that. But it seemed smoky, more than last time we were there. Burgers were fresh and yummy greasy. Mine was cheap, $7.00. And hubby's two dollars more with bacon. Waitress very nice, and it looked like she poured a stiff drink! We only had beer.
