Husband and I shared elk medallions entree. Came with mashed potatoes, blueberry reduction, broccoli, soup, and we ordered a house salad also. Plenty for both of us. Elk was tender, and very tasty. I added a glass of merlot. Total with tip was $62.29. Worth it. Waitress was very friendly.

Excellent food, not just tourist fare. This is a tiny restaurant with wonderful food and wine. It is a quiet oasis in this tourist town.

This was recommended by the host at the Alpine Motel for dinner. A wonderful surprise. The food was delicious, and the wine list, although small, covered what is necessary. Fast Service, friendly staff, and top notch food.

A family run operation and I wonder if it was Mom & Dad doing the cooking, but whoever it was, their food was outstanding! I had the buffalo tenderloin with three cheese tortellini and it was that good! I also had a couple of glasses of a great red. Only downside was my glass sat empty for far too long.... More

Creative menu, well prepared and presented food in a small storefront venue. Seats maybe 40 diners, with no waiting area. Same owners as the Euro Cafe. Service was good, minimal wine list, overall a nice dining experience.

The service (provided by the owner) and the food were great. Good opportunity to try elk and bison, if you have not already done so. Wine prices are good comparable to most restaurants.

The food was excellent, had the quail, and the artichoke dip. The dining room is very small, and no waiting area. Front of house staff need some techniques for dealing with new guests when the kitchen is busy.

I really expected to like this better than I did. It seemed that it would be a good alternative in a town with many good average restaurants. The restaurant is very small and the tables are close. We were seated in a booth and chair combination. The booth side was uncomfortably tight. There was one server who was very busy.... More

Our dinner was incredible - absolutely delicious. The restaurant is very small, so the booths and seating area is quite cramped. I would imagine anyone just a tad overweight, would struggle to get into the booths. But the food - from the incredible wine selection to the incredible desserts - was worth cramming into a tight booth! Service started out... More
