We ordered from the menu, but it was not all that hot or fresh. Mashed potatoes shouldn't be partly cold. The service was very nice, but the food was not memorable in a good way.More

Stopped in to browse the post as they were serving the buffet. Good variety and cozy cabin feel. Mid range price. Bought fudge at the post from Misty who was very helpful. Would return and recommend.

We went for dinner and breakfast and had good experiences both times. We enjoyed the rustic country atmosphere and the homemade tasting country buffet in the evening. The breakfast was off the menu but also very good.
