Our party of 5 arrived Saturday October 11th at 5:30pm and were told that it would be approximately 20-25 minutes to be seated. We were seated after 20 min. We ordered 3 glasses of wine, a rum & coke, and a Bloody Mary. The wines and rum and coke were fine but the Bloody Many was watery. We ordered onion... More

Arrived around 1800 hrs and the place looked busy by the number of cars in the lot. People were waiting but we were seated within 5 minutes. The waitress was right there within three minutes to get us started. I ordered a Humongus Fungus (breaded mushrooms) and they were really big and plentiful (a dozen). It looked like a meal... More

What a quaint place, it really is an old log cabin that has been expanded. We started with Bloody Marys and humongous deep fried mushrooms, both were top notch. The prime rib is also very good. Bottom line....WE'LL BE BACK

If a sign says please seat yourself, it means sit at your own risk of being ignored. We were going to try this restaurant as a family, we followed the signs directions on a Wednesday. A server passed us 4 times with beverages and customers going to another area. When she finally came to our table she stated she would... More

Dinner was Cod, either deep fried or broiled, all you can eat. Hot, tasty and a bit greasy, but that's deep fried fish. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We were a little early just before the dinner rush, so we were served very quickly

My wife and I have dined here several times in the year. Always enjoyable. The Saturday and Sunday prime rib dinner is always a good bet. The walleye dinner offers two perfectly broiled fillets and is one of my favorites. The onion rings are large and very very good...The salad is fairly mundane with iceberg lettuce, 1 baby carrot, 1... More

My husband and I went here for Dinner on a Monday night. We were able to sit on their patio. The service was a little slow, but the staff were very friendly. The food was very good and the bloody marys were also great. Its a great place to stop for just a beer or a whole meal. We have... More

Went on a Saturday with a group of 12. They had no allergy menu and I have to eat gluten free. Most places are still willing to work with you if they don't have a allergy menu but not here. Waitress said she was busy and didn't have time to read labels for me. My group ate their meals while... More
