The minute you walk in you are warmly greeted into this cozy throwback woodsy atmosphere. The menu is unusual and artful. The atmosphere laid back, Levi appropriate. Well worth the dime and the time. We'll be back!

We had wild game appetizer, bison steak, pork chop. The fresh vegetables were great also. Just a perfect meal.

I have only been here as a guest at a wedding so as an event venue only about 70 people it was great. Bar was cash bar and I disagree with the other review, because the cost was what I would expect from a place like this. Many of the dishes served were the bride's favorites from the menu such...

Great food and plenty of it. When we travel we are looking for experiences of high quality and different from what we can have at home. We had elk, venison, rabbit, and ostrich. All were amazing. The food was fresh and not over seasoned nor over cooked; qualities that can be hard to find. Beautiful views of tree canopy and... More

Very disappointed in service for a restaurant rated 4 stars. Food was also disappointing and over priced.

Four and half of us for dinner. Almost everything was very good to good, but there was one disappointment. We have been there a number of times over the past 4 to 5 years and often ordered the Ostrich. It was always wonderful. But it is no more. Too bad. Hope they get it back. Three of us ordered the...

Stunning menu, great service, fabulous food...a great place to celebrate with friends. I took my cycling tour group here after riding the Blue Ridge Parkway for five days and we had the best meal of the trip.

We really enjoy trying new foods and always enjoy when a restaurant takes something basic like macaroni and cheese and makes it exceptional by using blue cheese. This was served with the elk which had a hint of rosemary and perfectly prepared. The pheasant was excellent with shiitake mushrooms and the best risotto, not too soft, perfectly flavored. We also...

This is by far one of our favorite restaurants. We go about once a year and look forward to the next visit before we even leave. The atmosphere is quaint, located down a winding road lined with beautiful old oak trees. On our visit last week I had the bison and he had elk. The side dish with the elk... More
