Nice place to visit. Very historic and interesting. The prices were good and the bartenders were nice. They tend to close early, so don't plan on staying there late.

It's a must stop every time I'm able to visit Virginia City and this visit was no different. People dressed in era clothing, decor and there was even a band playing on this visit. Such a nostalgic place.
