The historic “The Fort” Restaurant that was constructed in 1961 to be a home for the Arnold family, designed after the all adobe Bent’s Fort, opened its doors in 1963 as an eatery featuring specialty dishes from the Wild West. The upper level became their home and the ground level offered meat and game dishes that were conceptualized from a fusion of native Indian tribes’ cuisine, dishes prepared by men from the mountains and those who travelled along Santa Fe Trail, and flavours introduced by Mexicans and Spanish traders. Today, the spacious restaurant, having 9 dining rooms and a courtyard, serves the most number of buffalo steaks throughout the country (they cook all parts of the buffalo too) and offer adventurous dishes made from rattlesnake and alligator. Make sure to try the roasted bison marrow, buffalo t-bone or sirloin steak, and their signature drink served in mason jars – the “hailstorm” cocktail.
The Fort is open daily from 5:30pm (5pm on Sat/Sun) onwards.
