Big Sandy is my home town. The Mint is historical. With an interesting back bar, simple and simply delicious menu options, Sunday night prime rib, and friendly folks, it is worth the stop.

Nice people and good food... There's a decent selection of beverages and café food. There is usually a local sitting at the bar. And the owners will treat you right. The gaming machines are set to no or very low volume, so there isn't any background noise when players are active. This place is an icon in Big Sandy.

This place is OK. The food is edible but there really isn't much choice in the alcohol department. Tammy does however make a mean tomato soup on Tues.

Saturday nite they put on a super Prime rib dinner for any dealers that wanted to attend and even opened for breakfast Sunday for anyone that wanted to have it (even though they don't usually do breakfast). It was really good and the... More

The Mint Bar is your average small town western bar. The people are very nice and friendly. The food is average. They basically fry everything. If you want something grilled or baked, this isn't the place for you. The have your typical fried foods (burgers, chicken strips, chicken, etc.) The food was OK but nothing special and they don't always... More
