An interesting saloon with lots of period features. The pizza looked very good as did all the food. A great place for a pit stop.

This is a really touristy place, but as there were limited options for lunch in Virginia City we gave it a try. The pizza was much better than I expected it to be. The Old West decor fits in with the area. Nice clean restrooms.

If you are vegan, look no further. The pizza dough is dairy free and you can custom order your pizza to leave off the cheese and add all the veggies. Tasted great and the staff (Athena) was very friendly. There was a band warming up...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.

Our pizza dough is diary free however we do only use real cheese so request no cheese when you order. We have good selection of non meat toppings to choose from that are cut fresh daily.
