The food was delicious, the presentation of the meal was unique, the staff was courteous and we had a fun time. Prior to the dinner we toured the outbuildings and antique shop, which was a fun step back in time.

Advertised as a chuck wagon supper. Too many people in a non air-conditioned building and seated at rows of picnic tables with attached benches. Good was adequate but nothing special. I would not recommend.More
