Herb is awesome! He's such a great host and cooked our steaks perfectly. This is our second time here and it's always great to escape the valley and get to enjoy some historic sites before they are gone. Don't miss out stopping in for a beer, a steak, or pull off the trifecta and spend the night. The rooms are basic but it's all about the experience of what the old west was like and who knows what actually happened there?
I have been to this place several times, and generally liked it very much. Previous reviews I've given it 5 stars. I don't know what the hell happened last night. We took friends there who have never been. We were hoping that an enjoyable time could be had by all. Not so. First, it was incredibly hot in the entire restaurant. My guess is the swamp coolers were broken, and the owner did not have or want to spend the money to fix them. It was well over 90 degrees in there. The waitress said it was well over 100 degrees in the kitchen. I guess that's why the wait staff was moving so slowly and inefficiently. The food oder got screwed up a bit, one in our party had to wait far too long for his food, and then had to send it back to get it right. The jukebox was way too loud. It was very difficult to carry on a conversation. There was only one pool cue in the entire joint that had felt on the tip. Oh, and the bats. Did I mention the bats in the restaurant? I really do hate to post a negative review on such nice people. But this place is slipping.
The Fantastic Mr. "It's Complicated" whisked me away for a weekend and promised to show me parts of AZ I'd never seen. First destination was Prescott, and the first stop on the back way to get there was a pit stop/beer break at the Kirkland Bar and Steakhouse. (And Hotel and Arena.) It's old. It's quirky. It's where cowboys and bikers come together. And it's one of the coolest places I think I've ever been! Haven't had a chance to eat here or stay here - YET! But the service is friendly, the beer is cold, and the place is old enough that you can't help but wonder what stories this building can tell. From the brochure - built in 1863, Wells Fargo State Stop in 1870. May have been a bordello, was a rail stop, and has been a registered National Historical Site since 1998. We have the beginnings of a plan to rent out all the hotel rooms and just take the place over for a huge party one weekend. At that point, I will update with a review on the hotel and restaurant - but for now - I can't wait! This place is a find and speaks to what AZ used to be and still is, if you know where to look!
