My husband loved the steak dinner and my salmon was heaven. Fantastic service in the lovely dining room overlooking the lake to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Get the full dining experience by coming here in summer.

Common courtesy would dictate that you ask permission before allowing your THREE dogs to relieve themselves on any property not belonging to you. The Big Moose Inn’s public area is still private property and not a dog park. Had you not pulled out your little...More
