Highly recommended by the locals. We had a short (20 min) wait. House filled with locals - even every seat at the bar. Our steak were cooked perfectly.We both had a loaded potato soup which was delicious. Highly recommended.

We had to wait for 25 minutes at the bar for a table but it was worth it. The waitress was a delight and joked with our 85 year old mom. All three in our party ordered the rib eye steak special and were very happy with our choice.

We were stopping for dinner after a long day. We both ordered the chopped steak. Didn't pay attention to the 12oz size. We also had the side salad and a baked sweet potato. The salad was very fresh with a great ranch dressing. The steak was cooked nicely with onions, mushrooms and green peppers. We both brought most of ours... More

Having read all the previous reviews I was a little sceptical. However the food was great as was the service and prices are very reasonable. We had the 8oz ribeye, delicious.

Rainbow trout was very good, service was also very good, and very clean and nice place for dinner. But the best of all was the Cobbler (blackberry) it was hot with ice cream on top would go back just for the Cobbler. Yes I'm going back!

Went here with family and friends. We had excellent service, great food, and a wonderful experience! The ribeye steaks were prepared as ordered, the salads fresh and tasty, and everything quickly served very hot. We really enjoyed eating here and highly recommend it!

Good meal, great service! Friendly staff! My only complaint would be they serve margarine instead of real butter....I would definitely go again!
