My husband and teenage son and I ate here after a morning of ziplining. We found it on TripAdivsor and it was such a great meal! It's a small quaint place at the edge of town. It doesn't really look like much, and the sign...More

We loved the food and quaint restaurant. Service was great too. Be sure to stop by at least for a drink at the bar if not lunch or dinner.

Service was slow and sloppy. Had to go get the silverware myself. The chicken bacon cheddar sandwich was good. The fried Brussel Sprouts were great.
