I highly recommend this for a great meal and incredible pies. Huge batter fried onion rings were popular and very good. We shared an order for 4 people. Cute gift shop to browse if you need to wait a bit. It's worth the wait.

This place was clean, service attentive and the onion rings I've ever had. The raspberry cream pie was sublime. In my book, it's a must stop.

Had the "must-have" for an out of towner like me, one of the two Walleye Pike dish offered on the menu, the fried one. Very tasty fish, flaky and flavorful, well balanced mashed potatoes with horseradish and garlic and grilled asparagus. Too bad the fish...More
