Dinner with a view

Try the trout, it was yummy. The view on the river was beautiful. Quaint with fishermen fly fishing in the river. The decor feels kind of like the movie, "A River Run through It". Updating would be helpful at some point but the food was rather tasty.

Both of us enjoyed the Duck. I would highly recommend the food and the restaurant. The staff treated us very special. The sausage soup was excellent. The view from our table was Breathtaking. You walk into a comfortable and cozy place.

The book is outstanding, 5 stars plus. Mushroom soup with brie is to die for. The trout dished will melt in your mouth and let's not forget the wonderful ambiance. I guarantee you will not be disappointed with the hidden gem.

This restaurant and its employees offer a dining experience that is well worth going to. We had gone for the Yuletide Family Weekend. We had 11 people in our party and a full restaurant of kids and families coming for the Yuletide Family weekend. Our waitress was very nice.

We'll organized service. Food was good and plenty. People were nice. The warm fireplace and smell of birch made you feel cozy.

My husband always had fond memories of this restaurant so, while in the area, he thought he might want to check it out and so we did. Although my meal was delicious (I had the wild mushroom ravioli) he thought his trout was made with too much butter and he really didn't get any "hit" off the trout at all.... More

Scenery from the restaurant is spectacular with gorgeous river views by the windows. Any of the rainbow trout entrees are spectacular. We ordered the grilled, French, and the bacon wrapped rainbow trout. Each was delicious. For dessert the maple crème brulee was excellent! The apple dessert sounded good also, but it had very few apples and was not as satisfying.

This place was fabulous!! Despite the trout being flown in from Idaho rather than caught from local river, it was delicious. Previous reviews talk about delayed service --- this is an upscale restaurant, not a fast-food joint. We had a 5:00 reservation, we were seated right away and left around 6:45. The trout was nicely presented, and the view is... More
