This was our groups second choice to eat dinner at during our stay. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Well worth the visit. Do take time to read the history of the real Alice May.

Great food, great service, well priced, what more can you ask for. Close to the Motels, warm and cosy on a cold wet winters night. Good menu with plenty of choices.

We ate here on our first night in Franz Josef and had a very nice meal with excellent service. Prices were also attractive and the menu was large enough to have something we both enjoyed. Wine was also attractively priced.

As warm and welcoming, as a traditional English Carriage House. The white walls and exposed rafters are adorned with riding tack, farm tools and other historic artifacts. While the wooden floors, wagon wheel bar stools and open fireplace add to the warmth.
