Hidden gem

We've been meaning to dine there but could never find the time. What took us so long? We drive right past the small sign and had to turn around but it was worth it. When our server said they smoked their meats in house, I knew I was going for the ribs. They were baby backs, cooked to perfection... read more

We recently stopped there for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised by the nice decorated interior. It does not look like much from outside, but inside it is clean and nice. The food was very good. The only thing I would recommend is for them to speed up a bit! The service was rather slow.

We stopped in for lunch as we were passing through town. It was a delicious meal enjoyed by two adults and two kids. It was a great environment for families...lots of choices that kids would like, but also high-quality food that would appeal to adults. We will definitely be back.

Stopped on our way to our cabin on a Friday night. We had reservations, but they were very busy and no tables. We waited about 15 minutes and a table coming open did not look promising. while we were debating (already 7:30) a nice table of three gentlemen asked if we would like to join them. We accepted and had... More

Based on the recommendations of locals, we ended up at this restaurant for dinner. It is clear that they have visions and dreams of something bigger, but they are not there yet. Food and service did not match the price point. 2 out of 3 of our selections had no flavor and was overcooked. the 3rd was acceptable.... Head down... More

My wife saw a small article in a local "Happenings" type paper about the Lost River Brewery. I checked their web site which listed their menu. So we popped over this evening (9/5/15) to give it a try. Besides food, they're also known for their craft beers - which we didn't try. We got there right at 5PM and were... More

There are several dishes that are tasty. The Bison Burger, the Chicago Hot Dog, Fish and Chips, 1/2 Chicken and the Mac & Cheese.. There is a nice variety of appetizers. If you like fish, this is the place to get it fresh and tasty. The beer is made right at the brewery and varies with the season. This is... More

Beer made on-site is good.It can get busy on the weekends, but it's comfortable to sit at the bar. We had soup and salad, both were good - the soup was a little salty - but over-all, and enjoyable time. Also - they have a full bar.

Great relaxing brew pub. I had a Pale Ale and Amber Ale and both were great craft beers. For dinner I had the burger, which came highly recommended by the bartender and did not disappoint! My girlfriend had the fish & chips, which next time I will be getting also, fish is very well prepared! Definitely a gem in a... More

Food is very good with a large selection, the music is a little on the depressing side, as is the wait staff (though do their work).
