We had the filet mignon and were disappointed about the meat. It was overcooked and the quality was just ok. So was the rest of the food. The restaurant interior is a bit pseudo ski lodge, but was ok. The service was very friendly and...More

We had the steak, which was good but undercooked for what we ordered (medium well). The "sour cream" on the baked potato was a little strange -- almost as though it were mixed with plain yogurt. Also, the restaurant is small and was very hot.More
