An enjoyable evening. Good service, good drinks, good food, a fine evening at the bar. We were able to order the entire dinner menu from the bar. And the atmosphere is always appealing. Great west texas style!

Bartender was attentive and knowledgeable. We opted to order some food in the bar instead of waiting for a table in the 12 Gage. The service was prompt and we enjoyed our dinner in this intimate setting.
