Typical Bar/Pub kind of place. Dark inside with a little casino area. Stuffed bison abound with kitschy little decorations. Bar type local servers and tourist clientele. A long walk for us from our cabin near the IMAX theater. Wondered if it would be worth it-...More

Ate here Sunday night and watched Sunday night football. Buffalo chili was delicious!!!! Buffalo chicken dip was decent. I thought it would be better. It was loaded with chunks of chicken. Food was good for the price. Atmosphere was neat. I’d go back.

The service was good and quick even though they were busy. The portions are huge. We just had an appetizer and a bowl of chili each and neither my wife or myself could finish and we were sharing the appetizer.

I definitely saw some kids in there when I went in for dinner. Also, the bar staff seemed aware of what music was playing, and whether it was "family-friendly" before 8, so I would think it would be fine to bring your kids... More
