My husband and I went here for burgers. The service was slow and the servers rude. They boisterously greeted some people - apparently regulars. (I guess they have enough customers and don't need any more?) Our burgers tasted rather funky, as though the ground beef...More

We stopped in late afternoon while sledding for a late lunch. Shared chicken, craisin, pecan wrap with my hubby. Daughter had popcorn chicken. Waitress kept walking by with soup in a bread bowl - need to try that next time we are in the area!
