Snake River Saloon: There’s no place like home

Thank you so much for highlighting Jim Shields and the Snake River Saloon in The Summit Daily News. And thanks to Jim, Carol and the many who have worked there for all the fun times.

As a 20-year Summit resident who met, became engaged to my husband and threw my rehearsal dinner at the Snake, I obviously have fond memories of the place.

I even had a stint as a waitress there in the late 1980s-early “90s and loved my time as part of the Snake family. And that is exactly what The Snake River Saloon is to Summit County – family.

Through times of massive growth, corporate greed and a restaurant and bar popping up on every corner The Snake has weathered the storms and stayed constant as a great place to have dinner, enjoy music and best of all, be yourself.
