I enjoyed the place, nice museum as well as a restaurant. The staff are very friendly, the food was really good and the price was not at all bad. I would eat here again.

The family style is fantastic, but we love, love, love the Hide Out. Chef Dennis is amazing, his ribs are to die for as is anything else on the menu.

Unique location at the mountain base, but no view of it while dining. We ordered Flat iron steak & baby back ribs, both with corn cob, mashed potatoes. The appetizer homemade bread was excellent. Entrees were 3.5 out of 5. Grilled corn & mashed were 4.5 out of 5. Bread pudding 3.5 out of 5. Meal was disappointing overall for... More

Food is well prepared and there is lots of it for the price. Located a bit out in the desert near Superstition Mountain. Great for couples and/or families. Try it. I think you will like it.

It was a fun thing to do as we felt we were living in the Gold Mining era. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is fun, especially for children. You feel that you are taking part in a wild west movie. I love those kind of movies. Something interesting happening on the street. So now instead of watching a... More

Stopped by for lunch on Friday, 30 September...not many people there at first but quickly filled up while we were there. Rustic interior and very clean with great wait staff. We all ordered different lunches and not a complaint in the group. You gotta try their sweet potato fries and the bacon cheeseburger is second to none.

This was the perfect spot for a family meal with teens. The food was filling and reasonably prices and the western set appealed to the kids. As far as adult go, it's OK but high on the touristy end. Food was OK and western themed, so we really can't complain.
