Dear Raymond L Thank you for sharing your kind comments about the Manager who helped get your party seated and taken care of so promptly. You mentioned a name and I am thinking this may have been Evan one of our Lead Bartenders. I will make sure he knows how you appreciated his initiative. Sincerely Imelda Leix General Manager More

excellent, friendly service and convenient location as we stayed right in the attached Bavarian Inn Lodge. The good was just ok, but the prices were great. We would have ordered differently, but they were out of several of the specials.

Food was very good, and well priced. Same as the Bavarian Inn Restaurant, just not the huge family style serving. Although I may have missed that on the menu. Would go again.
