This great little place is closed right now due to a fire. When it reopens it would be with a visit. The Sunday brunch buffet is awesome.

Eclectic décor. Good food. Really nice view especially from the outdoor seating area weather permitting. A regular stop for us after having been to Splitrock Lighthouse. Unfortunately there was a fire on site this summer and has yet to reopen as of October 8, 2018
