“gourmet in the north woods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

nice atmosphere and very good food - had the wild rice veg dish, filling and very very good. Son had the fish tacos which were good but a bit paltry on the portion so he finished up my wild rice as it was much more substantial. From what we saw, the food was excellent but a bit uneven on quantities vs price.

“Go for the mac-n-cheese!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Visited here three times and have had the Gouda bacon mac-n-cheese as well as the gouda with pretzle. OUTSTANDING! While the two different drinks I tried to order this time were both no longer available even though they were still on the menu.

We had great food and great customer service. There are 2-3 TVs with various channels on and both booths and tables are available. There are also fun questions on all the tables. Great conversation pieces and way to get everyone off their phones. :)

Very impressed with the gluten free and vegetarian options for our party. Service was attentive and friendly; food was out of this world delicious. Make this restaurant a meal stop in Park Rapids.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a must eat place if you are in Park Rapids! I was here for work and was taken here for lunch. There are so many options and not all are your ordinary food options. I had a BBQ pork sandwich with apple chutney and it was so delicious! The inside decor was really charming as well. You can tell this is a well loved place by locals and a great place for tourists to eat as well. Since its the winter a lot of restaurants are struggling without revenue from the tourists. Its great to see this restaurant still open and pretty busy!
