We live in the area and this is the place we go for special occasions. The food and service are typically excellent. For an upscale meal the prices are quite reasonable when compared to the competition in West Branch or Hubbard Lake. They are located adjacent to the local Big By Restaurant but do not share the same kitchen as... More

Got there at 5 pm and didn't leave until 7pm. Had to wait over half hour just to get the outrageous bill of $117! 4 people not worth the $26 dollar plates!

Decided to drop in after a long drive and day of shopping. Both of us ordered prime ribs with red smashed potatoes, the house salad and the stuffed portobello as our appetizer.

Fantastic food - Walleye was amazing, big servings (more than we could eat), multiple side choices come with meal. More than pleasing atmosphere. A bit pricy but when it's really good, it's worth it. Worth our search to find it as we traveled through. Would definitely go there again when on that side of the state.

The only reason this place rates a two is because the service was pretty good. The food was horrible. I ordered prime rib and I guess that's what it was. It was pretty unrecognizable and there was absolutely no flavor. How can prime rib have no flavor at all. It was not a nice piece either. It looked like some... More

On the higher side price wise, but worth every penny. Service was fantastic too. Check for discount coupons at your hotel.

I have dined here a couple of times, the prices are a bit high, especially for the area, but I did enjoy the food, service, although it was a bit like a cave, some windows would brighten up the place.

The ambience is very nice, the service is good and the food is just okay. The house salad was very nice, but from there the food went down hill, and the price went Up. I had the rib steak, cost was $26.00. Included salad, okay rolls, cold baked potato--no trimmings just sour cream and butter and steak.the steak was 12... More
