We ended up here 3 times in 2 days and had no complaints. Prices are what you would expect for a vacation destination and everything we ate was adequate or better.

We love it here. The food is great and the atmosphere is always relaxed and fun. The mushroom and swiss burger was delicious by all standards. If you order the beer cheese soup, ask for tortilla chips instead of crackers--it's more of a dip consistency, but great!

Great place to hang. However, Our waitress on NYE was ending her shift at midnight. She comes up to us at 1150 pm needing us to cash out and if we need anything else to go to the bar ... It's NYE....its packed....thanks for letting us know ....we were on empty.... We cashed out and hurried to the other place...

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I'll take the blame for this one. I'm the one who made the schedule and should not have scheduled anyone to be out at midnight. That being said, your server that night is one of my best. Yes it could've been handled better/differently. My apologies and I hope in the... More

Stopped in and had the burger and O-Rings. Best O-rings I have had in a long time, nice and crunchy. was a bit busy, not a lot of floor space so again, you feel a bit cramped.

Glad that you enjoyed your "burger and rings". When we are busy it can feel a bit cramped. We have to welcome that seeing as how it is about to sloooow down soon, and stay that way until June(gotta pay the bills). That's no excuse for our staff being less than attentive. I'll address it.

Stopped in for lunch while our daughter ran the half marathon last Saturday. Had a beer and the plain ol burger. It was delicious & cooked to order. My husband has the special pulled pork bbq & liked it very much. Definitely a great spot off the main drag.

We were doing a girls weekend on the Island for the wildly popular Halloween weekend (weekend before Halloween) and we lucked into a table here . It's a great log-cabin interior where "Locals" meet "Fudgies" - everyone's welcome and everyone's comfortable - and you play Keno while munching on appetizers like BLT Dip (seriously good) and Chili Cheese Fries (I...

Stop by have an expensive beer or drink, skip the food it is below many of the better restaurants! The famous Mac&Cheese with Bacon Sandwich and the Mustang Burger (frozen pre made)were not that good and the fries were right out of a bag, condiments right at the table all for the bargin price of $11.95 each!

Yes, our crinkle cut fries come from a bag. That's the normal method of packaging and 99% of our customers love them. What's the point of going on vacation and compaining about a $4 beer or $6 mixed drink. Sound pointless to me. Thank you to all of our customers who left feed back we can work with. More

Wondered around checking out restaurants and like this one because the menu looked interesting and it wasn't like all the other restaurants in town. It has a lot of history and some of the original structure was retained.The food was good and reasonably priced.
