We have only been to the bar. It's a must stop if you are racing fan, which we are. The local brew on tap is nice. Next year we will have to try out the restaurant.

We tried this place for breakfast based on TripAdvisor recommendations. Good breakfast and great service! We liked the rustic log cabin atmosphere. We decided to return for dinner, which was also good. Breakfast menu was basic and dinner had a good variety. Prices were reasonable....More

Reminds me of the Twin Peaks hotel. Like it. Great location on cusp of state park. Coffee not very good, food simply average but generally palatable.
