Excellent, and the folks at the next table were enjoying their meals also. Tater tots were also good. No ambiance but you don't expect that here.

Family of four with a small child. The server was quite nice and the food was delicious. We all got something different and loved every bite. I would highly recommend the burgers.

Great place to hang out and have a beer and a bite after a day fishing! Good food and cold beer plus an opportunity to trade stories with the local river guides.

Service is friendly and fast, food is filling and fried. I like the country store next door and it was a convenient place to find provisions for the lake.
