Good stop during snowmobile ride

Good place to stop & warm up & get a drink. We did not eat so I'm not sure on food. Easy access & parking for sleds.

Food is good except for their friday night fish fry. Waitress didn't bother asking my husband and I if we wanted seconds on the all you can eat fish. When we finally flagged her down to put in another order of fish, it seemed to take forever for it to come to our table.

Visited on Thursday night after 6 hour drive. Place was busy, but service was prompt and they had a couple daily specials. I opted for the Hickory Smoked 1/2 chicken. Portion size was good, coleslow was bland.........but the chicken!.......this was probably the best chicken dinner I have ever eaten in a restaurant! Tender, juicy and flavorful. Too many times a...

Our snowmobile club spent the week in Newberry and ate at this restaurant each night. They were very friendly, accomodating for groups and great food.

We had lunch here twice, because of the convenient location. I was not really impressed with the food (my chicken was frozen, waited for it, came and it tasted horrible! The BBQ sauce tasted like cheff boyardee)... but it is right on the trail. Feel free to try it but I will not go there again.

In to get lunch today waited in line next to huge hostess will seat you sign and no one seated us or acknowledged us for at least 20 minutes. We sat at the bar to witness about 20 other people treated the same and watched them leave all after waiting a long amount of time. I held back from ordering... More

We are sorry that your trip to our rest. was less than expected. This new years weekend was the most extreme change in patterns that we have seen in 10 years. Our staffing is based on years of past records and for sure this year has been an exception. We have seen a 250% increase in customers for this past... More

Usually fish and chips is OK. This was terrific. It was Whitefish - and very good whitefish. Service was excellent on a sleepy Sunday afternoon. Unique ambience eating surrounded by bobcats, beavers and critters. Fun and tasty!

Stopped in for breakfast and was glad i did. Nice, friendly, rustically decorated and offering very good food at fair prices. As it was Sunday morning in October, the TV was offering NFL pregame shows, which suited me fine. My meal arrived and coffee was closely attended to as I got the latest opinions for today's games. A pleasant experience... More
