We stopped here in early September. Looking for a decent place to eat. Great food. four course meal with liquer or root beer float for desert. Quaint. Western. Delicious. Friendly. Not a fast food place. We'll be back again

Bates has a fun country feel. They do things their own way but the result is amazing food and usually lots of it. Meals come with salad, cowboy soup, potatoes and rice, and an after dinner drink. Very fun and very tasty.
