"The Ox", as we locals call it, is so different from anywhere else in town. It truly is a step into the past. Stop in for the Angus or Bison Burger served on a ciabatta bun in the bar. Most of all, please be there for the Occidental Jam every Thursday night at 7pm. Come early if you want a seat. It is free of charge and you will enjoy an evening of great music by local musicians and good old fashioned fun. We never know who will show up. We have had musicians from Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Sweden and from all over the States. You can mingle with locals and get a sense of the real American West. You will not be disappointed!

This place is a hub from people visiting and the regulars! I met a lot of cool people, all of whom were more than happy to approach me and listen to my story and also tell theirs. I went the night that they had their live music, and it was great hearing everyone play!

Great place to think about what the old west was like - it has been really well preserved but not a stuffy place - very nice service and music

I have to say we didn't eat here, but our time was so memorable! The bar was full so we sat at a table and ordered a couple of beers. Before too long we found room at the bar and the young gal tending it was super friendly and everyone was enjoying each others company. The mayor of the town happen to be in there with a few other mayor's and we had a nice chat with them as well about the area. We were told we could look around the bar and downstairs where memorabilia was plentiful. So glad this place has been kept open.
