Decided to have dinner at this restaurant. Walked into one open room with several tables and a bar. Menu is very limited. Service was good, but guess we just aren't the biggest fans of bison burgers (wife had that). Opens at 3 p.m. and they were already down to one cup of tomato soup, but did offer some mushroom soup.... More

This little restaurant was just beside my hotel and I decided to give it a try. I love wine and they had a great selection by the bottle and some by the glass. The two servers were great, I was traveling solo and they made me feel welcome. I had a cheese platter with some wine that was AMAZING! specially... More

Great food & drink and staff is amazing! Nice place for a nite cap to relax before turning in. The desserts are wonderful and wine list is wonderful. Mary and the staff are amazing and will do everything they can to accommodate special requests. Thanks for a great time!

One reviewer said they took one look at the exterior and thought it was a dive and left. What a shame. They probably also judge books by their covers. What a shame. That poor soul missed out on a great experience. I stayed at the Vagabond Lodge next door. What a fortuitous event. The first night, I stopped in and... More

Simple food menu with a variety of salads and other entrees that pair well with the fairly extensive wine offering. In restaurant wine store allows diners to pay a reasonable corkage fee for wine bought there.

We arrived late right at closing, they were more than willing to stay after hours and serve us, and what a surprise the food was some of the best we've ever had the conservation was great! It is quite refreshing to find a place that enjoys serving and helping people on there way, hopefully we will get to spend more... More

Thursday night music night, great music, good food, great company. Sometimes it's packed so one is iced out from attending. Mary is great, the staff is great.
