The main dining room, filled with taxadermy animals is the number one attraction of this old bar & grill. The fish is good, as are the fries, onion rings and burgers.

Thank you for your review - we do have a comment on our whitefish as fresh depends on availability. So sometimes it is frozen but I wish the waitress would have said something to you to that effect. Marilyn Szabo

We had lunch here. The waiter was training another person but was very up front and friendly. My wife had the special and I had the chicken sandwich. Both were very good. All the staff was very friendly.

The birthday girl chose this place, she had been there before. If you're not a fan of hunting, do not go. The place is full of antlers and stuffed bodies. The food was ok, the service was not good. If they know it's your birthday,...More
