A classic small-town restaraunt, the food is delicious, and has great value, and the building is adorned with prints of many different places in the community. The restauraunt is highly involved locally, and is a good place to go to find out what to do for the evening.

Small restaurant with good service, good food and great price. We went there for their breakfast special on a lovely Sunday, but the breakfast was surprisingly tasty (toast, potatoes and eggs were well cooked), and they were quite generous with their serving portion.

The food was good and the servings sizes were very good for reasonable prices. The decor is simple and comfortable. The restaurant was busy, with a mix of tourists and locals. Servers seemed to know the locals and remembered their usual choices, which was nice to see. It was very friendly and enjoyable.

We do accept "trained" service dogs. This was not the first visit this customer has had to our restaurant. On her first visit I explained to her that her companion dog was welcome as long as it behaved like any other service dog and it did not. I do not want this to become a mud slinging match on the...

Excellent food and busy restaurant. Service was good and the food plentiful! The only drawback that we heard about was that this restaurant is only open until 7:00 p.m. so not ideal for anyone returning from a day trip of hiking.

We ate here because one of the locals recommended it to us. It is, indeed, a popular restaurant with the locals. Prices are moderate and the selections on the menu are mostly standard choices. The servers know the regulars by name and their dining preferences. I have heard their meatloaf is very good - but that is only available on... More

Nothing too adventurous on the menu. But portions were healthy and the place seemed to have locals as well as tourists eating there. We found the food to be bland. But this may just be typical of rural Canada. Informal comfort food. Not exciting but not bad.

We were very hungry after our 5 hour hike and we wanted something that would fill us up. We all ordered the hamburgers which were homemade and very yummy and we had the home made butter tarts for dessert. I don't believe you can order liquor or beer here but that did not stop us from having a good dinner,... More
