Wow, we were pleasantly surprised how good this food was in this excellent restaurant. Great service, live music on the weekends and wonderful beer too! Be sure to try the fantastic Mac and Cheese as a side with your meal.

Had a delicious dinner after a long days drive. Great view of Mirror Lake from our table. Server was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. Pulled pork, corn bread and coleslaw was delicious. Will be back next time I’m in the area.
