Personally, don't waste your $, appeared and tasted like everything was frozen and boxed, nothing tasted fresh. For $25.00 a person, something could be fresh. But, if you want to go to an old building with some ambiance this is for you.

All the food is excellent.Trout is cooked to perfection. Braised Lamb shank will melt in your mouth. Don't forget the Lemon chess pie for dessert. Sue cooks a filling breakfast omelet.

Very good service and food. Waitstaff was very attentive and the atmosphere was very nice. Looked like more locals than guests there and that is a good sign.

If you really like fresh mountain trout, this is the place for you. Really anything on their menu is outstanding but the trout, prepared 5 ways, is special. The ambiance of the old dining room will take you back to the early 1900's as well.
