A fun place to go for the young and old. Part of the EVL experience. Great long island's, burgers and fish and chips. Gotta go for the fun atmosphere. Usually packed during ski season.

Only order one and share, a huge portion, served fresh with choice of side, coleslaw, bun & butter. The burger's are a great option as well, and return in the morning for an omelette, coffee is 50 cents. There might be a line-up, this location is a local favorite, excellent value, try to sit in the front, the back room... More

Busy Saturday afternoon,sat quickly and waited for water for 20 minutes!! Server blamed the bartenders for wait on waters. Fried zucchini was all breaded,ceasar wrap was different with bacon inside,french onion was ok,roast beef was enough for another meal. Good prices for the portions,just slow service.
