“Fantastic Breakfast in the Woods!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Oh, what a meal. Party of six- eggs, pancakes, breakfast burrito, and fruit. Fresh squeezed orange juice was exceptional. Great food and great service. I'll be back.

“Amazing breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We stopped for breakfast before going hiking. The veggie potatoes with salsa were amazing. Great variety on the menu, for both breakfast and lunch. Great value. Will definitely return.

“Good food, extremely populat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

They plan for the crowds by having a separate place to get coffee and enjoy the view. We waited 30 minutes for a table on a Sunday morning. Friendly wait staff, some innovative foods.

“Another great meal at Fire Sign”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We know crowds are large around lunch time, so we planned for a 2pm arrival. Got seated immediately.
My wife and I had lunch; my teen son opted for the berry crepes special. I enjoyed my turkey, green chili, cheese and cranberry sauce sandwich. My wife enjoyed her spinich salad. Staff is very attentive. We sat on outdoor deck. No lake view, but quiet and peaceful setting under the trees. Well worth the visit.

“Still great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We have been bringing friends to Fire Sign for years. They have great breakfasts and lunches. The service is very friendly and good. The meal portions are large. The location is easy. Sometimes there is a wait, but it's worth it. Check out their specials. Any of the egg dishes are good.
