Very good service and food. Waitstaff was very attentive and the atmosphere was very nice. Looked like more locals than guests there and that is a good sign.

If you really like fresh mountain trout, this is the place for you. Really anything on their menu is outstanding but the trout, prepared 5 ways, is special. The ambiance of the old dining room will take you back to the early 1900's as well.
