In my opinion this is a must see place in Tombstone. It may not be authentic, but it's cool. Our service was nonexistent but we liked it anyway. Good for beer, but there are much better places for food. One of our favorite parts of...More

I ate here recently one evening. The place feels quite historic. There's a good range of dishes, reasonable prices and a large selection of good beers. Portions are large. Service is friendly and efficient. I would definitely eat there again if I returned to Tombstone.

While not an authentic old western bar, Big Nose Kates, we had a fun visit on a quiet afternoon for beer and beer, and returned for a meal that evening. By not authentic I mean that it is meant for tourists. The waitresses were pretty...More

After seeing the gunfight at the OK Corral we went into big Nose Kate's for lunch. Great menu selection with quick service. Good country music played while we ate made for a nice break in our day.

The ambience is the real draw here as the food is just average. The service was friendly and quick, the beer cold and the food hot. The sights and sounds really do set this place apart.

We had a great time. Beer was cold, the price reasonable and the karoke is fun. I would recommend everyone visiting. Note they stop serving food early in the off season

I had the Cowboy cheese steak sandwich. I had it without the peppers and chipotle ranch. I had the cold slaw with homemade dressing and fries with homemade ranch dressing. It was excellent.

No it's more of a restaurant. I hear they clear out table and it becomes more like a saloon in the evening but I didn't see that.
why when i go to eat am i told i can't sit at a certain table unless i have that ,many people , but then i see other people allowed to do same thing and why did it take so long to get my food ( over 30 minutes ) !!! if you guys are going to do this seating thing then have a hostess to seat people and get rid of large tables . otherwise i will find other place to eat my time is valuable to me . food was good by the way but not worth the wait !! looks like they were under staffed to us !!

Their website says that they have 12 beers on tap. I can't remember what they were, but I would not let that get in my way. Their selection will be as good as any bar in Tombstone. Go and have fun!
