Went there with my 2 boys after a good day of hiking. We had our diner on the terrasse. Everything was very nice. Good burgers and pasta. A good place to eat if you are looking for something not fancy but genuine.

Deck is awesome. Food is great and service was spot on. Had the wings ascend french onion soup which blew away the one we had in placid.

We love the food. Duck wings, mushroom soup, it was all great. I brought my son a couple of years ago, and we ended up eating here twice on our trip. Same happened with my husband this time. Excellent food.

My husband has eaten here several times over the years, and he was keen that we eat here this evening. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the food was great: the duck wings appetizer is amazing, the bison burger with homemade potato chips was...More
