12 Gage Restaurant

12 Gage Restaurant Review

When the sun sets, this intimate indoor–outdoor restaurant, aka Cafe Cenizo, is the best place to eat and socialize in Marathon. The innovative menu, featuring fresh produce from the Gage Hotel Garden across the railroad tracks, changes with the season but always has a Southwestern flair. Entrées sizzle with prime steaks, smoked cabrito tacos, and roasted game. The chicken-fried steak, a Lone Star staple, is a cut above. Choose from the extensive wine cellar. After dinner you can belly up to the bar at the White Buffalo, where people-watching is always a kick.
