It is a cute restaurant with a cozy log cabin feel inside. The food overall was good. I liked the white fish.

Good food and a good location, it gets very busy during the holiday season so you might have to wait for a seat.

Just my wife and I for a dinner. Service was friendly and atmosphere was great but the food was not good. A shame as this place has tremendous potential. As we asked around later, the word is that the ownership doesn't really care.

Just introduced a new chef last fall. Is he still there, how did that impact the menu. Do they still carry the Fried Perch?

We were there in October 2015. Food was very good although pricey. Our complaint was the service. It was as if staff enjoyed working together more than actually working. Party atmosphere with little service. Very... More
