Visitor Tips and News About Rattlesnake Saloon - In a Cave
We visited the saloon today and it is worth driving the seven miles to visit. However, this extremely unique place has so much potential, but they have settled with creating only a redneck bar. Our first impression was from the Saloon taxi driver, who acted as if he would rather be doing anything other than shuttling people to the cave. The waitresses and other staff we encountered seemed even less friendly, as if they also would rather be anywhere other than the Rattlesnake Saloon.
The menu is actually done very nicely and has some cute items like rattlesnake eyes and tails (deep fried green beans and jalapenos). All in all I'm glad we stopped, but this could have been a place you want to tell everyone about. Instead, unfortunately, it is a redneck bar with poor service and average food.[T.

Rattlesnake Saloon - In a Cave
This unique bar/restaurant was built up under a bluff, with seating in a large cave and on top of the bluff. It's a one-of -a-kind experience, out in the country far from any big cities. There's water pouring constantly off the bluff like a fountain. The food was great and affordable, too. There was a band playing in the cave area when I was there.
Inside the saloon, there are snake skins, a mounted head of a wild boar (I believe), unique pictures, and a mounted rattlesnake positioned lunging at a rabbit with his fangs ready to strike.
They're only open on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and don't start serving beer until 5 pm. It's part of the Seven Springs Lodge resort. You can camp out here in your RV, or you can spend the night in one of their grain silos that have been converted to bunkhouses. They're fully equipped with furnished bedrooms, a living room, TV, microwave, and a coffee maker. They're also right next door to a swimming pool. There are stables for people to keep their horse, and plenty of trails to ride or just hike.[Ben Tate, 04/18/2011]
