This was a great burger on our way back from the trail of 100 giants. It was a very long wait however. I'm not sure if that's the norm. The meal was worth it.

I am sure this is a isolated incident, but I have to express our visit yesterday anyhow. The greeter was very nice and we were seated quickly despite the fact that we were a bit late for our reservation and they were booked. I assume it was the owner (a tall gentleman) checked on us regularly in the beginning and... More

This is the place to eat up the river from Kernville. Layed back atmosphere, come as you are and enjoy your steak cooked to perfection. After Road's End burned down, this became the "IT" spot on the river. All accolades are well-deserved.

We didn't actually eat here, just had drinks. The bartender was super as is the bar. I want to go back, rent a cabin and stay for a few days. What a relaxing place to read and swim. BE SURE TO take a walk across the river on their footbridge. This is a lovely spot, an absolutely beautiful setting.

Their hamburgers, while being a bit pricey, I couldn't help, after biting into the burger, yelling out, "eat your heart out Ronald MacDonald". LOL
