My favorite restaurant we've visited in this area for the three days we were here. Highly recommend! If I was a local I'd eat here constantly. The food was high quality and delicious, good portions that we had some leftovers, and for a great price....More

We enjoyed a great breakfast here after spending the night in area cabins. Their garden out front was fun to look at and check for familiar plants!

The restaurant was beautiful inside and outside. We did not get to see the squirrels circus. We had the buffet. The food was very warmed over and somewhat flavorless. I know we ate later in the afternoon but thought a buffet would be kept fresh...More
