This is an interesting western bar that is frequented by the motor bikers in the summer months. Food is OK. Good beer, sometimes a fun atmosphere, sometimes it's just dark and dingy. Often depends on the crowds in there. Worth a stop if you're in Bragg Creek. Staff are friendly.

Not sure that this qualifies as a "red neck" place but it is well worth a visit when in Bragg Creek. The food is first rate and they have a very good variety of beer on tap. The service is friendly and very efficient.

Make sure you ask for your Worcestershire on the side! The Caesars were not even red, they were dark brown. We were told by the waitress that she likes her Caesars dirty when we tried to get some extra clam juice. Ended up going elsewhere for lunch and didn't finish our "drinks"

We went to Bragg Creek for a hike and a look around. It is a very interesting place ...we hiked around the river bank trails....enjoyed the scenery, the people are very laid back and enjoyed some very good salon food. I think it would be a great place to go for a hike when the snow is lightly falling.

Popped in on a Tuesday night looking for a quick bite. Was pleasantly surprised. Bar/Saloon atmosphere. Menu was typical for type of eatery. Good drink choices, food came out in good time and was filling and tasty. The hamlet of Bragg Creek is quaint and nice to visit. Weekends it's quite the happening place.

We loved the $5 Sunday Ceasars!! Tasty, food came out within good time also. I'd recommend to go with friends shopping or otherwise.

The atmosphere is typical Bragg Creek. Yes, it's saloon-like. The drinks & bar food is really reasonable, and the weekend entertainment is always a hit here. Come & enjoy!

We went on a rainy day and the chili with garlic bread was superb. There was grated cheese and onions on top and delicious veggies in the chili on a cooler day. The atmosphere is great and they even have the swinging doors on the way in.
