We must have gone to a different restaurant than all the rest of the people that posted, as our experience wasn't very good at all. Kind of indifferent staff (except for a young woman who had what I think was an Australia accent). Very slow although there wasn't many patrons. Food was pretty uninspiring. (How can you ruin pizza???) Nice... More

Early dinner right from kayaking. Felt a little under dressed. Service was great. Daily special was awesome and quite large. Daily drink specials.Dinner for three with one drink, soup starter. $70 plus gratuity. Well worth the stop.

Please.....don't be like the thousands of travelers who drive through Golden B.C. daily, base their dining options and opinions on the well franchised commercial strip fronting the highway, and simply keep on going. There is a hidden gem in this part of the Rockies, and it is worth every second of the three minutes it will take you to get... More

Stopped here for breakfast. Best omelet I've had in long time. Hashbrowns fruit and toast were great too. Good service, nice setting and great food. Well worth the stop and just a few minutes off the highway.
