It wasn't long after that the magic touch of Texas honcho Mickey Smith started our current history of success, serving home cooked food, and specialties like grasshopper pie. Jim Shields and Bob Starekow took charge in 1976. Bob added his restaurant skills, which greatly influenced the Snake. The way Bob saw it was, “It’s a tough job but someone's got to have fun.” Good judgment and constant support by a few people from Fort Collins, has helped us through the years. A special thanks to Doug and Molly Murray. Today, the tradition continues with Jim and Jane Shields, and that loyal staff.
Just for the record, we the undersigned would like to make one thing perfectly clear. We are dedicated to the proposition that all restaurants are not created equal. We want the Snake River Saloon be superlative... an experience memories are made of ...Your hosts, Jim & Jane Shields and Carol B. Peoples welcome you.
