The history of Pioneer Saloon is as lustrous as its wooden decor and nostalgic "Wild West" ambiance. In operation since 1880, the landmark saloon has become a local destination for its Live Music Sundays. Open seven days a week, Pioneer features tap and craft beer, local and international wines, a full bar and a variety of non-alcoholic options.
What's new: "We now have an outdoor wraparound patio seating area."

The Village Pub's Michelin Star cuisine and wine and spirits program have been well-loved nationally and locally since the restaurant opened in 2001. The restaurant sources roughly 80% of its produce directly from a partnership with SMIP Ranch located in the hills above Woodside, all of which is grown without pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers.
