We read another review about how great the food was in the restaurant, and since we hit Baker City about dinner time, we thought we'd stop and give it a try. We ordered entree salads, which we found out later are dished up with their bare hands. The server seemed frazzled, with four other tables, and after she dropped off the salads we didn't see her again until we were finished eating. Since I am allergic to tomatoes I ordered them on the side so my husband could have them. Sadly, I did find half a dozen mixed in with my salad. My husband doesn't like bleu cheese crumbles, so he ordered that on the side for me...of course he found some crumbles mixed in. The avocados were mostly dark-brown from air exposure (I shudder to guess how long they've been out or in the fridge.) which wasn't very appetizing.
We also ordered the blackberry cobbler, thinking that in a place like this it must be homemade, and after all, we are in blackberry country so it has to be good. Boy were we wrong! The berries had fermented (literally tasted like we were eating blackberry wine) and not sweetened at all, they used puff pastry on top which was soggy and tasteless and the ice cream had ice crystals in it from freezer burn.
When we brought this to the server's attention she was completely indifferent and brushed it off. It was then that we got a look at the kitchen.... disgustingly filthy. There was no offer to rectify the situation (another dessert or refund for the dessert) and we just couldn't wait to get out of there after seeing the kitchen.
I will not return, nor will I recommend - I just hope now we don't suffer any physical, negative side-effects as the evening wears on. Obviously we opted not to stay in the hotel based on our experience in the restaurant.
