The Kirkwood Inn celebrated its 150th year of friendly western hospitality, and remains one of the best watering holes and eateries in the High Sierra. The Inn sits at the intersection of Alpine, Amador and El Dorado county lines. The Alpine/Eldorado county line actually runs right through the old bar room.  Rumor has it that during Prohibition, the bar was on wheels so it could be rolled across the county lines and out of the jurisdiction of the visiting sheriff. And the slot machines were hidden in the kitchen. 

The Kirkwood General Store offers a full service deli complete with breakfast options, espresso, made-to-order sandwiches, salads and pastas, fruit smoothies, ice cream and even more! The General Store is also the hill grocery store and Post Office. Stock up for the weekend or grab a few things for your day on the hill – the General Store is your one-stop-shop!
