Opened in 2015, the restaurant is located on the grounds of the historic Indian Springs Resort & Spa. The rustic new American cuisine uses the regions finest ingredients prepared in a classic form. Its natural setting at the foot of Mount Lincoln provides for both indoor dinning and alfresco seating on its expansive patio. It is a restaurant that draws generations of families together.
