Kirkwood Inn & Saloon is a piece of backcountry history, all the way from 1864. The menu looks as if it were built by a high-country fur trapper, but it is surprisingly high-end with soups, salads, burgers and an eclectic offering of entrees. The full bar doesn’t have an enormous selection but does have hot cocktails to ward of the winter chill in addition to traditional drinks, beers and wines.
