“Pretty standard local fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

The local crowd does seem to favor this place - everybody was friendly and all. Portions were pretty "tourist sized" (small) which surprised us. Food was OK, no real complaints, nothing to distinguish. We had blacked catfish & rainbow trout. Not sure either was a "keeper"... Would try someplace else next time

“Good ol southern breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

Good food at a good price with friendly service. What else needs to be said? We eat breakfast there two mornings. It was a wonderful way to start a busy day of biking and hiking.

“A.J.'s Hearth & Kettle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Very good. Had supper. Got there for supper just at 7 pm which is closing time (winter hours) and they stayed to serve us. Great catfish. Also, ate breakfast following morning. Very good.

“Still the same great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

On a recent visit, my husband and I enjoyed the same great taste we've always loved from here. We always get our orders to go so that we can either enjoy a picnic along the river or settle into our hotel room or cabin sooner. If you dine in, be prepared for them to seat you right next to another couple/family when there's a whole room of empty tables that they could easily spread everyone out - kind of dumb when it's not typically a full house (another reason why we get our orders to go). Portions are huge, delicious, and not at all greasy.

“A sturdy breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

This open all year restaurant is a great place for breakfast. (We haven't tried other meals there, but we will.) The food, service, selection, and price were all very good.
