The restaurant decor was recently overhauled by Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell, and was voted Best Restaurant by locals – it’s certainly a favorite of locals and visitors. Wine selections feature local, Calaveras varietals. In warm weather, enjoy your lunch and dinner on the patio overlooking charming, historic downtown. Inside, the saloon has barely changed since the mid-1800s and retains its old west vibe and style with an old wood stove to keep guests toasty just as it was in during the Gold Rush.
