  • I had the cole slaw burger and it was blaw taste. No flavor. The bun was good and I thought it was going to be great. To bad. The fries were average. My date had the fish and chips and it was average....  read more »
  • This is a very old building which has been open and operating forever. It is home to the suicide table and lots of local pictures and lore. Worth the stop. 
  • Slow inexperienced servers. Waited one hour for three burgers. Chatty waitperson but ineffective. Food wasn't worth waiting on. Fries were tough and burgers so so. Big disappointment.
  • Great food and great staff. Made me feel like they really cared about my family and I.
  • Step back in Time! Loved the atmosphere, and the food I isn't bad
  • Made a trip to Virginia City and stopped in The Delta Saloon for lunch. They had great food and had a lot of the old machines which are always nice to see. I will definitely go again!!
  • One of the only restaurant's open for dinner was the Delta Saloon's Sawdust Corner Restaurant. We tried the new summer dinner menu which was more than just fast food items. A loaf of sourdough bread hot out of the oven was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside with the aroma of sourdough peaking your senses. Dinners are served with your choice of soup or salad. The salad was larger than expected. The ranch dressing tasted homemade with rich buttermilk flavor. The bleu cheese was more like Roquefort with minimal bleu cheese chunks and a bit on the sour side. Duck a la Orange was beautifully sliced and presented with grilled zucchini and a giant baked potato. Although our server did not ask me the temperature I wanted it cooked at, the duck was cooked to a medium rare and tender. The skin could have been crispier by scoring the skin and to render some of the fat underneath the skin. The sauce was magnificent with balanced sweet and savory flavors. The baked potato was okay. The first one was not done with a hard and gritty texture. The second one was much better, but could have used another 15 minutes in the oven for a soft, fluffy interior. Rating: 4/5 Grilled Venison was also beautifully presented with grilled zucchini and mashed potatoes. The server did not ask my husband how he wanted it cooked. The venison was cooked to an uneven medium temperature. It was flavorful but dry in some parts. If it was cooked to a rare or medium rare, it would have been perfect. The sauce with its sweet tones, paired perfectly with the venison. The mashed potatoes were great with a course smash to let you know that they were made in-house. Rating: 4/5
