Enjoyed a tummy filling meal of burgers and pulled pork with friends. Beer was great too. IPA was good. Service was friendly and chatty with helping with our questions. A good stop on our travel through.

Great variety of micro brewed beer. You can watch the beer maker working away in the back of the bar area. Lovely old building with lots of history. Knowledgable and helpful staff. Food, we had a burger, was good and what you would expect at a bar.

The food here is pretty good. The beers are nothing to write home about. The service was what will probably keep us from returning. The waitress was very rude and more interested in hanging out with her friends at another table than paying attention to her customers.

My wife and I ate here the evening we stayed in Cortez. We had a burger and beer. The food and beer was very good. The staff person taking care of us was not as personable as I expected him to be.
