This is a roadside bar that's been around since mid-century last. The current owners have been at it for decades now, and they have built up a strong local following. The tourists (like us) are welcome, but they don't need the summer season to make...More

The weather wasn't great but that didn't dampen our spirits. Nice, casual restaurant for even larger groups. We had a delicious family lunch and beautiful view.

Came to sit at the bar. No seats available. Waited about 15 minutes to get the hostess' attention. Took another few minutes to get a table. Waited 20 minutes and gave up. Guess I'm done with The Pines.
