Nice upscale nature explorer hideaway. Great for casual fine dining, nice patio bar, live music Make reservations if not going to patio, weekends especially lots of visitors. Food is good, upscale casual dress. Don't miss $5 Burgers Tuesdays. 100 yr + Priest Movie Theater right around corner, great antique stores, nice location, limited parking.

Our family has eaten here a few times and it's always been delicious! The kids menu is a great value. Eating outside on the patio is fun.

This restaurant was an unexpected find in this small town. We were camping near by and wanted to watch a football game and have dinner. The food was pretty good, they had live music outside. Fun outside patio and bar. The inside the nice as well.. a little more upscale than outside patio. Service was great!

Was greeted at the door by a lovely young lady - I believe her name was Megan, very professional & courteous. After a short wait she was able to seat us. The atmosphere was very cozy, the drinks we good, the food was a little pricey but not bad. On our way out the door an adorable dark haired young... More

The Great Outdoors is a bit on the pricey side, but the way you feel when you visit just puts a smile on your face. The food is good, but I don't really come here for the food. They have a great schedule of local bands that play here and I try to follow their schedule. They do have a... More

Visited with a group of ladies and we all enjoyed our meals and service. The clam chowder and soup of the day were remarked on and Tuesdays is half price hamburgers.

Great location. Outdoor seating with live music is great. Food is hit/miss: some items are great, some just ok. Definitely should try it out.

Have eaten here before, great food and atmosphere, normally prompt, friendly service. Hostess on 1/1 was extremely rude and simply not pleasant at all. We requested outdoor seating (after viewing SEVERAL empty tables.) At first she simply insisted that there were no tables available. After prompting from us (party of 5) she went to "check with someone" and returned to... More
