We had a late breakfast (10:45) so we were the only people in the dining room at the time so the service was good. A very good breakfast menu and tasty food.

Stopped on our way through. What a great restaurant with wonderful views from the deck. Our waitress was very helpful in helping Midwesterners figure out what to order. The buffalo stew was so good that I told them they should sell it as a mix.More
