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.

The chicken pot pies to go...what a great way to have gourmet home cooking from your own oven! And without the tedium and mess. Wonderful ingredients make for a farm fresh meal. And stopping by to chat with the patrons is always a treat in itself. Highly recommended.

My wife and I ate lunch here in early October 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious and the service outstanding. I was able to meet the chef who is also the owner and learned about his Irish upbringing as well as the various places around the world where he has developed and honed his cooking skills.... More

Fresh sandwiches with a gourmet twist. Small and cozy restaurant. You probably will have to wait. Great service. Large portions. The deserts looked great, however we were too full to try.

We arrived on Monday and he was closed but the owner just happened to be walking out the door. He asked if we would come back the next day and then asked what we would like. He made us an exquisite quiche. The crust had a light buttery flavor like the edge of the best biscuit you have have let... More

Its a small restaurant - you may have to wait a minute or two but... it is very worth it - went for lunch on a Saturday because a local had recommended it and was happy that I did! The roast beef sandwich with blue cheese cole slaw was excellent! Save room for dessert (especially the coconut cream pie -... More
