Adam the manager (and the rest of the crew, too) was amazing. We have some unique food allergies in our family, and he personally took our order and cooked or food to ensure that it was done correctly. The food was excellent, but the archive was the highlight. Will be recommending and coming back.

Arrived late into the town & it was the only place open. The food was overwhelming and unpleasantly presented. If you want yo become obese eat here for sure. The broccoli was ok.

Went for a quick dinner with friends. Great food and reasonable prices; about $15 or less depending on what you get. Although we did not get dessert, the cakes were gorgeous! So many varieties. Open 24 hours; also has a full bar. Quick and friendly staff. Highly recommend!

The lunch menu was more healthy than expected. Not a lot of everyday choices. Not cheap either. I would have to say they were very nice and accommodating for my special family of allergies. They are located a couple miles down mountain near incline and Ruby falls. We went there after Rock City Garden before Ruby falls. You can eat... More

Didn't think this was going to be much of a place. It just looks small from the outside. Never judge a book... The menu is so diverse and the portions huge! We all had something completely different. Then the desserts - cakes, pies, cheesecakes - are colossal! A must try if you happen to be in ChooChoo Town!
