Visit and enjoy your BBQ meal in a big, beautiful, log home style restaurant that faces Humboldt Bay ! A great view and a good selection of menu items all with home cooked side dishes that are delicious !

They really shine when it comes to meat dishes(Except fish), but their sides aren't really all that great, especially the Mac and Cheese, which seems to be VERY pasty. It was like eating macaroni in cheese-flavored glue. But overall, it's pretty alright. Your best bet...More

Hello John, I'm sorry to hear that your Game Hen wasn't very good. Please come back in and ask for Jason on your next visit. Hopefully we can make it up to you. Thank you for your feedback.

I ordered fish tacos with grilled corn. The fish was overcooked to the point that I could not chew some smaller pieces. It tasted good though. The corn was another matter. It smelled and tasted like bbq starter fluid. It was terrible.

Oh no! I am so sorry this happened. If you would like to come and dine with us again, ask for Jason. He will make sure you leave happy and you are compensated for your poor experience on your last visit.

It may sound like an oxymoron, (the name that is) but the steaks were pretty good despite being somewhat thin. I prefer a thick steak to one chosen for its impressive plate coverage. The drinks were well crafted and the service was stellar.
