Star Bakery and Restaurant

Reviewed By Shawn B

It was an alright experience. The food was pretty slow coming, and when it got there it was missing items; rueben sandwich without sour kraut and thousand island dressing, no jalapeños or Sriracha on my burger that was supposed to be spiced up with peppers and such... Although they had no problem charging for these items. When asked the server indicated that she thought that the kitchen was out of those items. The bakery provided us with cinnamon rolls and delicious smells the next morning. We chose the cinnamon rolls and were not disappointed.

Bale of Hay Saloon

Reviewed By D0nlan40 - Helena, Montana

This is a fun Western saloon. You can have a cold beer outdoors, carry it into the Opera House next door, or enjoy the live music inside. The food we ordered was good pub grub. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The one-man band, singer, was excellent. A must stop in Virginia City.

Bob's Place

Reviewed By DnL_Adventures - Tucson, Arizona

Don't let exterior or looks keep you away. This was some of the best Crispy, thin crust Pizza I've had in quite some time. The staff was very friendly & helpful. Prices were reasonable & portions were ample. If we came to Virginia City again, would definitely return to Bobs. PS it's a Small Family run business... check them out!

Wells Fargo Steakhouse

The grand Wells Fargo building has been a restaurant since Charlie Bovey resurrected it in the fifties. With its tall tin ceilings, a grand horseshoe bar, ballroom-sized dining room, and historic Virginia City setting, the Wells Fargo has been a longtime favorite of tourists & locals looking for Montana night out. In 2016, Scott and Amy Kelley of Banditos and The Gravel Bar in Ennis, MT are taking over The Fargo. Scott and Amy are renowned in Southwest Montana for restaurants with delicious food and exemplary sevice, and they look forward to restoring true fine dining to historic Virginia City. With a family-style menu serving prime steaks and seafood inspired by Italy, and a comprehensive Italian wine list, The Wells Fargo Steakhouse will once again be a destination for locals & tourists alike.

I strongly suggest you make a reservation if you plan on dining there on a Friday or Saturday, Otherwise you may end up eating your meal sitting at the bar. The food is well prepared and the service is excellent.

Pioneer Bar

We went for drink every evening we were in Virginia City. Nice staff. Good mix on drinks and good prices. No air conditioning, so hot in the afternoon, but you can take your drink outside where it was cooler. There is a jukebox, pool table and lottery machines if you want extra entertainment.

Excellent service (10 minutes for to go) and the combination of the pesto sauce, veggies, and the sausage was very complimentary. I love olives however, the the one there used was very salty.

Virginia City Cafe

Reviewed By Jon G

I ordered a double hamburger. I'm sure what I attempted to eat contained little if any beef. Tasted like lard and looked like a soy meal hamburger from the 1980's. Just couldn't eat this slimmy thing. Politely complained to the young man at the cash...MoreSorry that your experience was unpleasant. If you had a complaint, it should have been brought to the attention of the server or the owner, who is always on premises. We use 100% "Certified Angus Beef" for our burgers and cooked to order.

Jade Monkey

Reviewed By barbscott628 - Bartlett, Illinois

I arrived in town about 7:30pm and by that time there weren't many restaurants still open so I thought I'd try this one. The food was outstanding. I had Jing Jiang pork which was marinated pork cooked with black bean sauce, served with chopped scallions and rice. Most delicious.
The restaurant doesn't have the typical Chinese decor. Rather it looks like an old west saloon in keeping with the other old buildings in town, the wooden sidewalks, etc. There are many old pictures on the wall from the 1800s when it was a mining town which include pictures of some Chinese workers. The owner told me that 1/3 of the town's population was Chinese then. So I thought it was very cool to have a Chinese restaurant there now.
