Arrived with a group of 10 for a late lunch. We were warmly greeted and waited a few minutes while they moved tables to accommodate us. The service was great and we all enjoyed our meals. I would recommend anything smoked or BBQ'd as that is what they are known for.

Stopped by on the way from the state parks. The positive reviews I read match our lunch experience. Our grouped tried the pulled pork, fish taco and bbq rib sandwich. Very good food for a reasonable price. Thumbs up.

Randomly stopped here after a long day of hiking on the North Shore. Short wait to be seated and then for our food to arrive. Food was fantastic...we all had different things and loved it. All agreed it tasted homemade and portion sizes were perfect. Plan to come back in the future.

have been here many times on our yearly visits to the area. never been disappointed with any of the menu choices. From the garlic infused French dip to the Reuben or the Cuban sandwiches. The beverages are also always very cold. Place is always very clean. We are able to ride our wheeler right into the parking lot for lunch.

We drove up for late lunch on a Saturday, after a long hike at Gooseberry Falls. There was a good selection of beer but no tap. All bottled. There were four of us and we were all a bit surprised how good the food was. Everyone was pleased with the flavor and freshness of the food.

I initially ordered the bean burger, which was freshly made and delicious. However it ended up having an ingredient to which I am allergic and after the first bite I couldn't finish it. The waitress and cook were gracious and allowed me to order an alternative meal, which was also very good. The atmosphere is pleasant in this restaurant, with... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday. My husband and I both gave it a "meh." I had pork carnitas which filled me up yet left me strangely hungry. Husband had beef brisket over bread with kettle chips. Got our food before husband got his beer. I will be tasting this all day. But that's not necessarily a bad thing either... More
