Yes, go there, you get what you pay for. We had a simple lunch and were satified. A little old west and no more and no less than you pay for.

One of the most friendly places in the country. Best Pizza in Town (or maybe even Reno). A supporter of LIVE local music... usually a band every Fri & Sat night PLUS an open Jam for local musicians (and some not so local) every Wed night. A good selection of local brews PLUS a brewery is a few doors down.... More

Good pizza, good meatball sandwich and most important one of the only places open in the evenings in the "off season". They have a stage for live music and a full bar. Really cool original interior with some modern updates.

Did not expect to find a great pizza joint in Virginia City, well we did. The staff was very friendly and helpful with all of our request. I love these old saloons.

A charming pizzeria and old time saloon with good food and drinks with friendly staff. The atmosphere is buzzing in the historic old town at the red dog Saloon. Friday nights have live bands in a fun and intimate venue.

Staff was friendly and helpful and the food was nice. We had two kinds of pizza, wings, bbq, and coconut shrimp. Portions were generous and reasonably price for a tourist spot. Not a big deal, but bbq and shrimp took a long time. Waitress explained it. Decor and atmosphere fit the bill. I had the bbq and shrimp and can... More

I loved going to this place. The pizza was awesome but above that was the help. Everyone was so gracious and friendly. The bartender told us about the Testi-festival that was on the weekend and told us that we should stop back by. Being a city-girl I had never heard of such thing so we came back up and was... More

What an amazing place. Virginia City is a throw back in time. Walking into the saloon made me want to order a shot of whiskey. I am looking forward to going back. There is so much to see and do in Virginia City.

Drove to Virginia City from Sparks....what a hoot! If you care to see some of the history of the area this is a good place for lunch. Pizza and antipasto salad fit the bill. A bonus is that the walls are filled with signed posters from groups who performed there in the 60's. Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airship and so many... More
