We've eaten at this restaurant several times and always enjoy the kind welcome extended by the staff. The menu includes plenty of local ingredients and is complemented by a good wine list. We are looking forward to returning again soon!

Trout seared in fresh butter and garlic infused olive oil with sautéed kale and spinach and hand milled cheese grits. Add select wines list and I think I've found the best food in Slatyfork

They have difference types of "nights" reflected in their meal specials. Very nice diversity in the menu. Super environment - rustic elegant. Sometimes an excellent local group plays "Elk River Ramblers". Fabulous chef and hosts are welcoming and friendly.

3 men shared a cabin with great clean economical accommodations. The place was quiet and clean. There was direct TV, WIFI and a gas pot belly stove that made the place quite toasty. Lots of hot water and a friendly staff.

NO. Unfortunately they're only open in the winter I think they may open it when they have a large fly fishing school staying there but other than that they leave it closed all summer long
