The shepherds pie, beef Bourguinon and chicken pot pie are amazing as well as their desserts. We also had the Tuscan vegetable soup and it was too spicy and acid I guess from the tomatoes. We'll keep trying other soups and dishes.

One of these quaint funky lil places I always end up loving. Had the roast beef sandwich with potato salad for lunch. Just great all around.

It is located in a little strip mall on Highway 105 S, but the road sign is catchy, Eat Crow. The salad I got was a New York Deli Salad Plate. It had Genoa Salami, Capicola, Provolone and Roasted Red Peppers with feta cheese and Basil Vinaigrette. The meats were folded and arranged on the plate with the cheese. It... More

What a Find! I have no words to express how much I have enjoyed each and every meal I have had from this lovely little place. Almost a hole in the wall, you would not notice it if you were not looking, please look, you will be amazed! I have had several meals there (all of which outstanding) however, today... More

This little restuarant located in a non-descript small strip mall may well be one of the very best eateries in the whole of the High Country. They are only open for lunch, well brunch and lunch (10-3 p.m.), but the owner (and cook) has a distinguished reputation having been head chef at some very well-regarded restaurants, and he prepares absolutely...

Stopped in here after snow tubing with friends. We were lucky to get a seat, since it is a very small restaurant. The waitresses were so friendly and welcoming. It is obviously a local favorite, because many other diners knew each other as well as the staff. The bread is delicious. We had the special, which was chicken and dumplings... More

Stopped in for Lunch. Excellent service and food. Soup was great. So were the salads. Carrot cake is to die for. Day before Thanksgiving and they were busy with Carry outs. I can see why. Outstanding. Will be back next time through.
