Food is very consistent and very good. Excellent service. The only downsides are a dinner menu that never changes and very limited wine selections. Nice tables by the fire in the winter!

We stayed next door so we went here because of reviews and ease of proximity. Were we're tired from a long trip and starving. We were seated promptly and it was apparently prom night. My wife ordered the walleye and steak meal and I ordered the prime rib I read so much about. Her meal was very good. I had... More
