The Occidental is a historic western hotel with a colorful past. The menu is perfect old west with interesting dishes; including an incredible elk tenderloin

This is living history! Great food, very friendly service, all in the atmosphere of the wild West. Down to earth food--nothing fancy--well worth a visit when traveling in this area.
