Breakfast on the farm

Their slogan "Not a half bad place to eat" tells it all. The whimsical touch of North Woods humor carries through in the decor. Have you ever eaten next to a genuine Fordson tractor?

Food was not very warm, weren't able to do any substitutions from the menu, water glasses were never refilled, unattentive waitress who dropped the food and never returned. Size of juice glasses were child size. We had to ask someone walking by to get her for us. Disappointing experience.

The food is good and you get a lot of it. The only thing the service is very slow and tends to help the hometown customers more than the visiting travelers. I would recommend that you call and make reservations ahead of time (Saturday & Sunday) otherwise you are going to wait forever.
