Small eatery with a huge menu. Dine al fresco on the patio and watch the world go by while noshing on delicious fare. You will see native Boulder City residents, young bicycling hipsters and everyone in between dining here. Dogs (and kids! Ha ha!) are welcomed on the outdoor patio. It's a warm, inviting atmosphere and the staff looks ... read more

Husband had the Westerner Sandwich with onion rings and loved it. I had a salmon salad I wasn't thrilled with, but there was nothing wrong with it from a cooking standpoint. It was just not my taste. Nice staff. Laid back atmosphere and there's both inside and outside dining.

Great for banana bread!

It's a good place to grab a bite to eat. I like the big drinks from a preserves jar. And my wife loved the Chile Verde enchiladas. I thought I was getting 'potato' pancakes, like their called (thinking it was a flapjack) but it was hash browns, fyi.
