The food is really good. Broasted chicken is one of my many favorites here. Good happy hour and the atmosphere in the bar is very charming. Rustic. Fun crowd! Great service!

What a great quirky place. Had pan seared walleye and ptarmigan sandwich and beer cheese soup with popcorn. Have to admit adding popcorn was a new twist for us and was good. The walleye was excellent. Great place.

Love the small town feel of this place. The kind that you wait for a table outside, with 20-30 others. Small bar with biz cards plastered all on the ceiling, good beer, drinks and apps. Restaurant is small, cozy tables, and good home cooked meals....More
