It seems that people drive from far to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries there. The old wooden house is separated into many areas and rooms giving a warm homy atmosphere. But what striked us as we entered beyond the line of patrons waiting for their table...More

The service was great and the food even better. The portions are large which was perfect for our hungry group. Each room appears to be decorated differently and the shops around the settlement made for a fun outing while we were waiting for our table.

They don't have any bar height tables. To be honest, the place is so crammed full of tables, it's actually difficult to even try to navigate a wheeled walker, much less a wheel chair, best thing I can suggest, is when you... More
