We always stop in here on the atvs. It's a fun spot to stop and grab a quick beer. The front porch is fun and offers a great view of the traffic coming by.

I apologize for the slow service. We are extremely short-handed and I admit we have a couple new waitresses just hired, that probably won't work out. I'm not sure how the Spanish burger was soggy, but I assure you that is not normal, and I'm...More

I'm sorry that you visited the Mangy while our air conditioner was out. It was completely replaced about a week ago, so it must have been right before the new one arrived. Because it was so warm in there, the doors had to be left...More

The front outside eating area attracted us to the Mangy Moose Saloon. I was a little disappointed in the food selection and quality but it would be a great place to enjoy a beer and watch the activity on the street.

Mangy Moose has been owned and operated by a single woman for over 20 years. We spent those years becoming the best bar in the southern hills, and offered your typical bar menu of burgers and appetizers. We have grown to a place that sells burgers, Mexican food and a great ribeye steak on the outdoor grill. Our cooking facilities are minimal and it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the high volume of hungry customers. Our food is good and most things are made fresh from scratch, but we have the most square footage on the block and a lot of steps to get food and drinks for the hundreds and hundreds of people that stop by each day. We love to have you visit the Mangy Moose and have a good time, but if you are in a hurry... you may sometimes be disappointed in the wait. There is usually live entertainment on the outside stage to enjoy, with a full liquor bar. Please keep in mind that we are doing the best we can with the facilities and staff that we have. We are a BAR with a limited menu, that happens to sell food, and not a RESTAURANT that sells alcohol. Everything on our menu is good and we have specialty foods that you can't get at any ordinary restaurant. If you are in a hurry and looking for a large menu, we are probably not what you are looking for. But if you are looking for a great place to sit on the outdoor patio and people watch, or a great place to enjoy a cocktail, a beer, or a glass of wine and have a bite to eat... you won't be disappointed.
