We visited late (8) on Saturday evening. We were the only ones in the dining room. Our service and meal were excellent. Cindy is a great server. The owner told us all about her beautiful hand made Christmas village. It was a very special evening.

While staying in Brown County we had several meals here and surely wished we would have booked it for Thanksgiving dinner! Parking on the street.
