We had a drink overlooking the 100 mile view. A charming old saloon with period artefacts, and a live banjo player while we were there. Very friendly staff. Lovely pit stop.

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.
