HIDDEN SURPRISES IN SMALL PLACES – WYOMING’S OLDEST BAR

Six miles north of Guernsey is the little town of Hartville, Wyoming.  Friends had told us about a little bar and restaurant there called Miners and Stockmen’s Steakhouse & Spirits.  They said the steaks served there were the best in Wyoming!  Well, we had to go!

As usual, deer were out all along our drive as we drove north on Hwy 270 into Hartville.  Now these are some winter coats!

Miners and Stockmen’s Steakhouse & Spirits is in an old building that was once part of old Fort Laramie’s trading post.

Miners is the oldest bar in Wyoming, in the oldest incorporated town in Wyoming.

The interior of Miners is rustic and very charming!  The beautiful hand carved bar was shipped from Europe to Wyoming around 1865.

I ordered the 8oz Filet Mignon and George ordered the 16oz Ribeye.  The steaks were very generous and cooked perfectly!  A bit on the more expensive side but well worth it.

Rounding out our meal was a very delicious Wyoming craft beer called Saddle Bronc Brown Ale.

We will definitely go back.  Maybe just do an appetizer and try one of their wonderful homemade desserts!  This pretty rainbow accompanied us back to Guernsey.
