Be careful what you order here, this time I ordered chicken fried steak and it was tasteless...the waitress was not very friendly she seemed tired and worn out, maybe worked there too long, not sure what her problem was.

The venue is old and tired. The food is just a failure. It was Sunday and little was open so we tried it .We were hungry and tired from a long day on the road. Everything we ordered was a disappointment. We finished nothing. Chicken wings tasted old and were drowning in a heavy sauce, trout was like jerky. I... More

This place was nice enough. Service was ok. Food was just ok. We were referred to this restaurant by the hotel front desk. Wasn't terrific, but acceptable. A bit on the expensive side for Wyoming.

Ordered two Rib eye steak specials which according to the waitress, included soup or salad. She asked if we wanted sautéed mushrooms and onions. We said yes to the toppings and asked for one salad and one soup. Also ordered a glass of beer. Service was marginal and quality of the food was poor for the cost. After we were... More

Chili OK, not as good as it sounded. Wings excellent. Long Island Iced Tea excellent. Reasonable prices and good service (we were there on a Tuesday night).

Everything here was just okay. The hostess was friendly, but took a minute or two to seat us and she ignored a customer who was waiting to pay while in the process of seating us(she even got our water before taking his check). Our waitress seemed altogether uninterested that we were in her section; she was only seen when she... More

Stopped here late on a Friday night road trip hoping for a great steak. After all it is cattle country. Ordered the Prime Rib instead. Glad I did!!! The dinner included a trip to the salad bar which was lacklustre at best. Almost zero selection. However they did have a couple of soups to choose from. Try the French Onion!... More

The food here was typical small town fare. My burger was good, the salad bar wasn't bad, and the french fries were awful: greasy, soft, and cool. The booth I got near the entrance had a cushion that hadn't been replaced in years, very uncomfortable, especially after a long day of driving. Those in the upper level looked like they... More

Great room on a huge property. The beds are very comfortable and the lobby is very authentic Wild West. Legal tender is very busy and not much to write home about. If I was not exhausted from driving all day, I'd go somewhere else.

Salmon was dry. Pasta was overcooked. Advertise largest salad bar in town because it's the only salad bar in town. Wouldn't go back.
