I was in for lunch, and the place was almost empty. It turns out that folks were were out back around the pond (see photo). I ordered the French Dip and it was one of the best of those I have ever had, with ample grilled onions, and very good supplied fries. Onion rings from some local suppliers are horrible... More

We stopped for lunch while traveling between Yellowstone and Idaho Falls. They offered four or five specials, we tried 3 of them. They were all prepared fresh and hot. Karen, the innkeeper, made us feel welcome and kept us supplied with drinks. I've added this restaurant to my "return list".

This place has the best $5 Hamburger in the area. It comes with French Fries. It's just a small Mom & Pop location, but well worth the visit.
