We love this restaurant!!! It's FAR BETTER than the Lone Fir Cafe down the street! Service can be slow at times, but food is GREAT and staff are super friendly and personable. Every time we visit Yale Lake we dine here!

We had burgers and such here for lunch - typical bar & grill fare. The food was delicious, but the staff was just great. Our waitress appeared to be the owner, or at least manager. She was very interested in ensuring our happiness and took...More
